Our liposuction surgeon at Avalon Lipo & Aesthetics now offers ThermaLipo to provide an added skin tightening benefit to your lipo results. ThermaLipo is a combination of procedures and technologies that work together to remove unwanted fat while also encouraging collagen production. This is an emerging technique that provides multiple benefits with fewer risks and a shorter recovery than the traditional liposuction methods.
The ThermaLipo process can be boiled down to three steps:
- Tumescent Liposuction: A sterile solution is injected into the treated area to isolate the subcutaneous fat cells, making them swell and harden, which cuts down on the risk of surgical bleeding while also leaving you with less bruising and swelling afterward.
- Power-Assisted Fat Removal: The technique used for power-assisted liposuction is utilized in the ThermaLipo process and involves a powered “wand” that breaks up the fatty tissues into smaller, easy-to-remove pieces.
- The Thermage® Skin Tightening System: The Thermage® system uses radiofrequency to deliver heat energy to deep skin layers, which stimulates collagen production. Collagen is one of the proteins responsible for youthful, taut skin. Your body produces less and less collagen as you age, which is why Thermage® can work so well at tightening the skin and delivering a smooth contour. You’ll continue to notice improved results for up to six months.
