As a company that sells and repairs a wide range of laser tools, the Laser Outlet has become incredibly familiar with the many applications that this innovative form of technology can offer in terms of medical and cosmetic applications. According to the company, while laser surgery has remained an increasingly popular option for those seeking treatment for a wide range of conditions, it has recently become more prevalent in plastic surgery and cosmetic treatment circles.
For example, a recent statement from actress Gwyneth Paltrow lauded the use of laser technology through the Thermage treatment utilized to reduce wrinkles. In a recent interview with The Daily Mail Paltrow endorses, “I had this laser treatment recently, Thermage, and it took a couple of years off my face but I haven’t had any plastic surgery yet.” While Thermage technology has gained popularity among other celebrities—including Sex and the City veteran Kim Cattrall—it is not the only laser treatment that has been making waves in the cosmetic surgery industry.
A recent report from WebMD highlights the growing popularity of laser liposuction and its ability to create considerably less “skin sag” than traditional, more invasive forms of the fat-removal procedure. The article reveals, “Laser-assisted liposuction might provide an option for people who want stubborn pockets of fat removed but fear they’ll be left with loose skin. Traditional liposuction, a fat-removing cosmetic surgery procedure, is generally reserved for people with firm skin to reduce the risk of sagging afterward. But the addition of lasers could spur tightening of the skin, researchers say.”
The Laser Outlet—a comprehensive laser equipment and service provider—responds to this news in a recent press statement, “While it is no surprise that laser technology has allowed for greater possibilities in liposuction procedures, it is interesting that its use is coming into greater acceptance by researchers, the medical community and consumers. Based on the WebMD article, it appears that laser liposuction may offer more impressive results than modern fat-removal methods—such as fat-freezing procedures—and can also provide greater convenience over traditional, invasive methods.”
While the procedure was approved by U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2006, the technology has only recently gained more consumer focus as a new study has suggested that laser liposuction offers considerable benefits over traditional liposuction treatments. According to WebMD, the study focused in on the matter of skin tightening among more than 2,000 patients who received laser liposuction.
The article adds, “Three months after laser liposuction, the researchers found that patients had between 20 percent and 80 percent skin tightening, meaning their skin contracted to within 20 percent and 80 percent of what would be expected for the volume of fat removed. The amount that the skin “bounced back” depended on the elasticity of the skin to start with and the body area treated.” Study lead author Dr. Abbas Chamsuddin reports, “The amount of skin tightening with laser liposuction is probably about 50 percent better than what would have been achieved with traditional liposuction.”
While the article indicates that more conclusive studies are planned to assess the laser technology’s comparison with traditional liposuction techniques, there are already indications that the relatively new procedure could offer additional benefits beyond enhanced skin tightening. For instance, Dr. Chamsuddin explains, “The newer form of liposuction also has the potential to remove more fat than traditional liposuction and lead to less blood loss because the laser dries the blood vessels.”
According to the Laser Outlet, the increased focused on laser liposuction is likely to lead to greater consumer demands for the treatment, which means that all cosmetic surgeons and centers should make sure that laser equipment is not only available, but is also up-to-date. “As more patients look into laser surgery for cosmetic options—including those beyond Thermage and laser liposuction—it is critical that all medical providers offers treatment with only the best in equipment. We offer a diverse selection of laser tools and can provide service and repairs that comply with current industry standards,” the Laser Outlet concludes in its press statement.
