How does the laser in laser liposuction help to improve the appearance of the skin?
The laser which is used in laser liposuction in my practice is the Palomar SlimLipo laser. The SlimLipo laser uses two laser wavelengths to perform the laser liposuction procedure. One wavelength is designed to target fat and the other wavelength is used to target skin. In other words, the laser wavelength for skin actually treats the collagen of the skin from the undersurface of the skin. Treating the collagen leads to skin tightening and shrinkage as a secondary effect of the SlimLipo laser liposuction procedure.
