The Complete Guide to Laser Lipo

Do you have pockets of fat that won’t go away with traditional weight loss methods? If diet and exercise aren’t enough to help you achieve your dream body, there are various non-invasive energy-based treatments that effectively eliminate fatty bulges. One of them is LASER lipo.

What is Laser Lipo?

Light Amplified Substance Emitted Radiation (LASER) lipo is a low-level laser therapy that ensures a less invasive alternative to liposuction. Low-level laser therapy is safer because there is no ablation, whereas high-level laser therapy is more dangerous because it destroys living cells. Low-level laser treatment leaves the cells patent and only safely stimulates them, similar to how exercise causes liquid fat to be released for calorie burning. As a result, there’s a focus on safe and simulated exercise and natural calorie-burning pathways.

The LASER lipo procedure involves laser treatments that last about 30 minutes per session. It uses low levels of laser light. The light triggers safe and painless stimulation of the body’s chemical pathways, releasing stored content in fat cells. Compared to its invasive counterpart, LASER lipo is a better choice for individuals who don’t want surgery and want more instantaneous, dramatic results.

How does LASER lipo work?

LASER lipo opens up the pores of the cell wall to trigger the release of stored fat. This released fat is then transported to tissues as energy reserves, boosting metabolism. When fat is metabolized into energy, it no longer exists as fat but as a “currency of energy” (ATP) used to perform daily tasks. 

What are the areas that can be treated?

You can use LASER lipo to treat any part of the body with excess subcutaneous fat. It’s commonly used to remove extra fat cells from the arms, lower and upper abdomen, buttocks, hips, back, and flanks.

Who should try LASER lipo?

LASER lipo is best for concealing specific localized fat bulges. The ideal candidate for LASER lipo fat removal is someone who doesn’t have a lot of weight to lose but is concerned about certain areas. LASER lipo is excellent for people who want to tweak individual body parts after committing to a diet and exercise routine. It’s also suitable for those wishing to define their thighs better and improve their body shape and silhouette.

We don’t recommend LASER lipo for women trying to become pregnant or who are currently pregnant. As with any aesthetic treatment, LASER lipo is best after pregnancy to remove post-natal fat. This is because pregnancy will stretch out your skin and put some fat on your abdomen, bringing you back to the situation you had before LASER lipo. It’s better to wait until after your pregnancy.

It’s best to be a candidate for LASER lipo if you are simply overweight or 10% over your ideal body weight. If your BMI is higher than 30, it will still work, but not as effectively. This is because you will lose excess fat in the treated area while maintaining excess fat in other untreated parts. Check your BMI on our website to see if you’re viable for this treatment.

LASER lipo vs. Regular Lipo

There are key differences in function, results, comfort level, safety, and recovery time regarding LASER lipo vs. regular lipo. Let’s dig deeper into each one.


The function of both LASER lipo and traditional lipo is to remove fat deposits. While traditional liposuction eliminates significant amounts of fat in a single session, it may cause the patient’s skin to sag afterward. On the other hand, LASER lipo moderately removes fat when done repeatedly and allows the skin to tighten over time.

Comfort and safety

Discomfort is higher in traditional lipo, mainly because there will be incisions. Traditional lipo also requires anesthesia, adding to the risk of anesthesia-related complications. Traditional lipo will have risks of bruising, swelling, and complications, not to mention a lengthy and painful recovery time.

Meanwhile, one of the best things about LASER lipo as a fat removal method is its comfort. The laser used for this treatment targets your fat cells precisely. Some clients even fall asleep during their sessions, a testament to how comfortable and non-invasive it feels.

With LASER lipo, you will be awake, alert, and comfortable during the entire procedure. They are virtually painless, with no risks of permanent contour irregularities. Common sequelae of traditional lipo, like bleeding, swelling, and trauma, don’t occur with LASER lipo.


LASER lipo provides better skin contouring and tightening. LASER lipo’s high-energy beams penetrate the skin and heat up the innermost structures, stimulating elastin growth and new collagen in the skin. This creates better skin appearance and overall function, which will improve over time.

Another difference between LASER lipo vs. regular lipo is the timing of results. While traditional lipo patients see immediate results, they may also experience immediate skin sagging. LASER lipo patients, on the other hand, will see gradual but consistent improvement, with enhanced skin tightening taking effect. These improvements occur over time as elastin and collagen proliferate to further smooth out the skin.


Recovery is vastly different when it comes to LASER lipo vs. regular lipo. One of the major differences in recovery is downtime. With LASER lipo, there’s no downtime. Patients who underwent LASER lipo can immediately return to their daily activities. Zero downtime also means wearing the best clothes and feeling comfortable baring some skin. Additionally, LASER lipo patients can swim right after their procedure, so you can have the best beach body this summer. LASER lipo also doesn’t cause nausea or headache from general anesthesia.

Side Effects of LASER Lipo Slimming

LASER lipo is a non-invasive procedure with rare side effects such as temporary swelling and bruising. However, these LASER lipo side effects will only manifest if you don’t go to a professional and reputable weight loss clinic. In most cases, negative side effects of LASER lipo slimming occur due to negligence and improper use of the equipment.

This is why it’s crucial to conduct research before going to any weight loss clinics. Your weight loss clinic should be able to answer all of your questions before they schedule your appointment. They should also explain everything in full detail to put you at ease and ensure you know what will happen before treatment begins.

At Marie France, therapists undergo rigorous training with annual standardization to ensure they are at the forefront of the aesthetics industry. LASER lipo treatment side effects like bruising may only happen if you have very sensitive skin.

LASER lipo Before and After

One of the most compelling benefits of LASER lipo vs. regular lipo is how quickly you will see results. With traditional lipo, you may experience excessive post-op swelling, and it will take up to six months for the after-effects to go down and reveal the procedure’s results. The results of LASER lipo before and after one treatment are different.

After a single session, you will notice an immediate reduction in the treated area’s circumference and a tightening of your skin. The skin will look tighter due to the heat used during the procedure, and the immediate circumference reduction is because of the release of the fat cells. It will only take four to six weeks for your body to flush out all the fat cells and for you to see the final results.

How long do the results last?

The results of a LASER lipo treatment last a lifetime. Once they’re flushed out of your system, the fat cells can’t grow back. Therefore, the treated area will have fewer fat cells permanently. You can also maintain your weight and body shape if you stick to a healthy diet and exercise regularly.
