Laser liposuction differs from traditional liposuction in two main ways. First, the laser energy is used to "melt" the fat. This turns the fat into a liquid and makes it easier to aspirate from the surrounding tissue, as well as ensuring a smooth, even result. This is a distinct benefit in areas where the surrounding tissue is firm, like the "love handles" or "back fat" in the upper torso. In addition, the laser energy can be applied to the underside of the skin after the fat is removed. This heating of the skin causes the deep layer of the skin to become thicker and to contract, tightening the skin. This gives a distinct advantage in treating areas of thin skin, such as the upper inner thighs, arms, neck and knees.
