What is Laser Liposuction?
Laser Liposuction is a minimally invasive and advanced body contouring procedure that results in permanent fat reduction. Laser lipo is FDA-approved and results in less trauma, pain, and downtime than traditional liposuction.
Laser energy penetrates fat cells, creating holes in the cell membrane. As a result, the fat cells release their stored fatty acids, water, and glycerol into the body and then shrink. The body then expels the fat-cell contents via the lymphatic system or burns them as energy.
At Xanadu Med Spa, Fort Collins, we pair laser lipo treatment with body cavitation and RF skin tightening for the best results. Body cavitation works have the same effect as laser liposuction, utilizes ultrasound technology, instead of lasers.
RF skin tightening then helps to tighten the skin and create a smooth appearance. It works by maintaining a temperature of 115°F (46°C) for over 3 minutes, which stimulates the release of proteins that create new collagen fibers.
Who Can Benefit From Laser Liposuction?
Laser Liposuction and Ultrasound Cavitation are beneficial for all body types and shapes.
Even if you are not particularly overweight, you may still have stubborn areas of fat you want to target such as love handles.
Generally, people who have localized areas of fat, or are just a little overweight achieve the best results.
In fact, even bodybuilders and gym bunnies can benefit from laser lipo, to tone up those neglected areas, or areas where the needle just won’t budge.
Whether you won’t are looking to restore missing confidence, or you just want to feel your very best, we can help.

What areas can Ultrasound Cavitation, RF Skin Tightening, and Laser Lipo Treat?
Most areas can be treated with laser liposuction. However, the thighs, upper arms, neck, abdomen, buttocks, back, and hips are the most common areas.
How Many Sessions of Laser Lipo Will I Need?
People usually require several sessions over the course of a few weeks. The number of sessions you will need will depend on your body, and one of our expert technicians will prescribe a course based on your needs.
How Long Does a Laser Lipo Session Take To Target Fat Cells?
A laser lipo session generally takes around one and a half hours. In the first hour, the Body Cavitation will use ultrasound technology to break down fat cells below the skin in the desired area. This is followed by the use of Laser Lipo pads which will use laser energy to further target fat cells.
While you may notice an immediate benefit, it may take around a week for you the results to become apparent. The results will continue to improve over two to six months.
What Is The Recovery Time For Laser Lipo?
Laser liposuction, body cavitation, and RF Skin Tightening require minimal downtime. Unlike traditional liposuction, these treatments are noninvasive and so you can continue with the rest of your day straight after your appointment.
How Long Will My Results Last?
These treatments empty the fat cells, which makes them shrink, they will not grow back. However, it’s important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise to maintain results.
How Do I Prepare For My Appointment?
You should drink 8 glasses of water the night before treatment, and lots of water the morning of, alongside a small healthy meal.
After treatment, you can help shift the fat cells by continuing to drink lots of water and exercise.
When Will I See Results?
Results from laser lipo can be seen immediately, however, the true results will not be visible for one or two weeks, and will continue to improve over 6 to 12 months. The fat cells continue to shrink in the days after your appointment and there may be a little swelling that needs to go down.
