Cold Laser Body Contouring

One of the newer and more popular treatments for weight loss and body shaping is known as cold laser therapy or cold laser body contouring. This form of treatment is non-invasive and is not painful, requiring no recovery time. Cold lasers are best used for small problem areas rather than extensive fat removal.

The idea behind this treatment is to use concentrated light energy to target pockets of fat cells underneath the skin and heat them using the light energy. The heating will essentially melt the fat tissue by destroying the structural integrity of the cells.

The reason this treatment is referred to as a cold laser is that the laser is not as intense as other types of laser treatments. The "hotter" the laser, the more powerful it is. Hot lasers are those that are used to actually cut through tissue, much like a surgeon's scalpel. Cold lasers, on the other hand, do not cause any physical pain and are virtually imperceptible to the person receiving the treatment.


Liposuction is still one of the most popular medical treatments to assist patients who are looking to lose weight quickly and get noticeable results right away. This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that a plastic surgeon can quickly perform to physically remove fat from the body.

Liposuction uses a small, hollow catheter or tube to access the layers of fat beneath your skin. Then, those fat deposits are suctioned out of the body through that tube. As such, this is one of the most effective medical treatments to get rid of fat because it physically removes those fat cells from the body completely.

This weight loss treatment, of course, requires the patient to continue on a healthy path after the treatment to ensure the results are long lasting and permanent. Without the necessary lifestyle changes, a person will regain the weight lost and the treatment will have been a waste of time and money for the patient.

Now that you know a few of the ways that you can get a jump on your New Year's resolutions, you can schedule your appointments and get the ball rolling. The sooner your get started, the sooner your will have the body you have always wanted.
