Laser Lipolysis

Laser lipolysis is a non-invasive form of body sculpting. It removes small fat deposits.


Like surgical liposuction, this procedure permanently removes fat cells from your body. It’s much less painful than liposuction and laser lipolysis recovery is also shorter and far less complicated. It also comes with a lower risk of loose skin afterward.

Laser lipolysis differs from traditional liposuction, which is considered major surgery and often requires general anaesthetic.


With surgical lipo, the surgeon inserts instruments into a layer of fat and uses a tube to break up fat cells and suction them out. Recovery can take months‌.

How does Laser Lipolysis work?

Laser lipolysis takes around half an hour, and you can return to normal activities straight away. There is no anaesthetic involved as this treatment is painless!


To carry out the procedure, your practitioner attaches paddle-like applicators to the area to be treated. The paddles emit laser pulses that penetrate your skin and heats up the subcutaneous fat cells underneath. The heat damages the membranes of the fat cells, so that they start to break down and perish. Your body then absorbs the dead cells via the lymphatic system where it is then drained. The fat deposits are changed into glycerol and surplus fatty acids. Glycerol is then reused by the body whilst the surplus fatty acids travel to the liver and are excreted as waste.

How many treatments will I need?

The full treatment period is approximately six weeks, you should have noticeable sculpting in the area that has been treated. Most people need more than one treatment for optimal results dependant on the mass required to be removed.

Is there any downtime after Laser Lypolysis Treatment?

There is no downtime post treatment and the results will progressively reveal during the next 2-6 weeks.
