Fortunately, laser treatment for cellulite is painless and can be completed under local anesthesia. However, the patient will remain awake when the procedure is being carried out. It takes just between 60-90 minutes for the procedure to get it done. However the exact amount time it will take depends on the specific procedure which you use.
The laser treatment is minimally invasive and almost painless. The patient will not have to worry about going under a surgeon’s knife because a small needle with some controlled radiation is used. The end result is smooth and well tightened skin. For some time now, cellulite has been pretty hard to treat, but excellent results can be achieved within a very short span of time with the help of laser procedure.
The laser rays attack the anatomic root which is responsible for causing cellulite and again, depending on the exact laser treatment procedure which is adopted, longterm results may be achieved. Laser Treatment for Cellulite increases the natural thickness of your skin, therefore achieving a healthier and smoother look that looks great for a long period of time.
There are however, certain things which you should expect from the laser procedure. The physician will mark the area to be worked on using a marker. A couple of very tiny incisions will be made on the area where the cellulite is located. A numbing solution or anesthesia will be used for the procedure, but again you will remain awake throughout the procedure. Laser fibers are inserted into the incision made via a cannula which will liquefy the excess fats in the area before pressing it out gently.
After the laser procedure, you will definitely experience some discomfort and bruising and in a few instances, some liquid may leak out from the incisions. If needed, the physician may recommend the wearing of a compression garment. The patient may be asked to rest for a day or two before resuming everyday tasks. However, it may take someone up to a week to resume strenuous tasks.
