Loose skin is one of the most prominent signs of age and sun damage. It brings fine lines, wrinkles and other undesirable features to the face, which is one of the most prominent features of the body. The worst part is that most treatments for loose skin require invasive surgery that can lead to undesirable results. Side effects such as scarring and prolonged tenderness are acceptable and expected risks associated with these treatments. This makes surgical intervention unappealing for many patients.
The good news is that minimally-invasive procedures have advanced an amazing amount during the last ten years. Vaser® Lipo allows for an effective way to quickly eliminate fat and other problems without the need for comprehensive and scar-inducing surgeries.
What is Vaser® Lipo?
Vaser® Lipo takes tumescent liposuction and makes it more effective by utilizing an ultrasonic probe to loosen fat cells from healthy and desirable cells. There are four steps to the procedure:
- A tumescent solution is injected into the target area. This helps to shrink blood vessels, which controls damage to healthy cells, and makes fat cells easier to identify and remove by forcing them to expand.
- The ultrasonic Vaser® Lipo probe is inserted into the skin. The energy selectively loosens the fat cells, which in turn makes them significantly easier to remove. This step dramatically reduces the trauma that the patient’s body would have to endure as the result of liposuction.
- A special device removes the “prepared” fat cells. This allows for quick body sculpting, which in turn allows patients to see immediate results.
- The skin is allowed to heal. It will naturally shrink as this healing occurs, which in turn will allow for sagging skin to be reduced.
Why is Vaser® Lipo Advantageous Over Other Forms of Body Contouring?
There are a few reasons why Vaser® Lipo excels over other forms of body contouring, especially when there is excess fat that causes skin sagging and other undesirable problems. The first revolves around the way the procedure immediately removes undesirable fat from the body. This targeted fat creates small sections of fat that the body removes, which in turn helps to initiate the body’s natural processes of rebuilding nearby tissue.
The second reason pertains to the way fat displaces the underlying collagen layer when it accumulates in excess. Removing this “pressure” allows the body to begin removing the loose collagen that has built up, which in turn results in even tighter skin.
The last reason why Vaser® Lipo excels is the way it removes fat cells without harming the surrounding healthy fat tissue. This results in a more controlled contouring of fat, which in turn tends to bring significantly better results to the patient.
