CoolLipo: The Latest in Fat Dissolving Laser Liposuction

CoolLipo: The Latest in Fat Dissolving Laser Liposuction

One of the best ways to eliminate spot fat and sagging skin is through cosmetic liposuction treatments. But traditional liposuction is slowly moving into the background as newer technologies are introduced. Since the introduction of laser lipo, or laser-assisted lypolysis, it has become easier to remove stubborn fat from trouble areas like the abdomen, thighs, butt, back, arms and neck. CoolLipo is the latest craze, and its advanced features make it a quick and practically painless option for liposuction patients.

What is CoolLipo?

CoolLipo, or Cool Touch Lipo, is a minimally invasive procedure ideal for both men and women looking to remove excess fat in relatively small areas of the body, such as under the chin, neck and jowls. It can also be used in areas under the arms and around the abdomen, thighs, back and butt. CoolLipo liquefies fat for easy removal from areas where traditional liposuction was limited in its effects.

Cool Touch, a developer and manufacturer of innovative laser products, created CoolLipo to give liposuction patients substantial results with as little downtime as possible. This procedure has some similarities with past laser assisted liposuction treatments, like SlimLipo and SmartLipo, but some features help it stand out from the others.

Why Choose CoolLipo?

CoolLipo has a unique 1320 nanometer wavelength that directly influences collagen contraction and skin tightening, an affect that standard liposuction does not have. While SlimLipo also offers skin tightening effects, CoolLipo has shortened the process using dual-action tools. The short pulse duration and the special Cool Blue Duet hand piece help to evaporate fat while simultaneously tightening skin cells. The two-in-one action makes for a shorter procedure and increases overall efficiency.

Another reason that CoolLipo is becoming more popular is the long-lasting effects of the treatment. Not only does it remove the stubborn fat deposits, leaving smooth, natural skin, but it also helps to stimulate collagen re-growth, which continues over the months following treatment.

What are the Side Effects and Risks of CoolLipo?

With the advancements in technology, CoolLipo delivers minimal side effects. Since CoolLipo is not as invasive as other liposuction treatments, there is less of a chance problems will occur. However, it is important to be prepared and know what to be aware of. Side effects will differ based on the patient, but it is normal to experience slight swelling and bruising at the treatment site. There is some pain involved, but it is generally mild and subsides after a day or two.

If anything more serious happens after treatment, patients should contact their doctor immediately. While CoolLipo risks are rare, they can occur if the physician is not properly trained or post-operative instructions were not followed. Also, a patient could experience more severe side effects of CoolLipo depending on their health history. All past medical conditions should be discussed with a trained liposuction surgeon before undergoing treatment.

What is the Cost of CoolLipo?

The cost of any laser liposuction surgery depends on the kind of liposuction treatment received, the area being treated, the location of the surgeon and the length of the procedure. Generally, CoolLipo costs anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000, which is a little more than standard liposuction costs. Even though it is more expensive, CoolLipo offers benefits that far outweigh the cost, such as safety, minimal recovery time, less pain and swelling and fast, effective results.

Am I a Candidate for CoolLipo?

The ideal candidates for CoolLipo are looking to remove excess fat in relatively small areas of the body. People who have “trouble” areas where fat tends to linger or aging skin that sags would have successful results with CoolLipo. For those liposuction patients who have undergone treatments before and are left with unflattering contours or small fat deposits, CoolLipo is a good solution to improve their look.

No matter if you’re new to liposuction or have gone through the procedure before, it is best to speak with a trained physician to learn more about CoolLipo and other laser lipo procedures to find out what is right for you. An accredited plastic surgeon will be able to answer all your questions and properly assess your body and health to determine the right course of treatment.
