Laser Body Contouring: Shrinking Cells
Check out Groupon’s guide to blade-free laser body contouring.
A noninvasive alternative to traditional liposuction, laser body contouring relies on light rather than scalpels. During the procedure, a technician applies special pads to the body or moves a hand-piece over the skin. The device directs laser energy into the fat cells, causing them to rupture and release their liquid contents through a temporary pore in the cell membrane. The body then naturally disposes of the released matter—most likely through the lymphatic system, though scientists aren’t certain about the precise path the fat takes through the body’s system of trash compactors and back alleys. As the fat is burned by the body’s metabolism over the next few weeks, the treated area may appear more contoured, though results aren’t comparable to surgery and progress is measured in inches rather than pounds. (Since the cells are emptied, not removed, they’re not immune to later weight gain, either.) All this takes place well below the surface of the skin, and no downtime is required typically.
The first low-level body-sculpting laser was actually used as a supplement to, rather than a replacement for, traditional liposuction. Low-level laser therapy had been used for some years as a treatment for pain and inflammation when a team of Colombian plastic surgeons led by Dr. Rodrigo Neira decided to use it to make incision-based liposuction more comfortable. When they applied the laser before treatment, they discovered that it made the fat far softer and easier to drain, prompting Neira to develop a system for standalone body-sculpting use.
About Face And Body
Sisters Jennifer Williams and Michelle Malquist save their clients time not by cutting corners, but by drawing lines. Having trained at the Academy of Cosmetic Arts and Sciences, the two micropigmentologists now apply permanent makeup to eyebrows, eyelids, and lips, a procedure that both accentuates clients’ features and reduces the length of their primping routines. The sisters’ services focus on creating symmetry and introducing complementary colors; they can fill in thinning brow arches, trace natural-looking tones over lashes, and even out or add volume to lips. It all starts during consultations, when the artists determine each client's unique aesthetic and draw preliminary outlines with a pen for approval. The final results make it so clients don’t have to deal with smears anymore, though if they choose they can achieve bolder looks by layering regular cosmetics onto the permanent designs, or by pretending they’re surprised all the time.
