Cool Lipo in O'Fallon, Missouri (MO)

Cool Lipo is a procedure that helps remove fatty tissue from small areas of the body that traditional liposuction left behind or cannot treat, such as under the chin. This laser-based technique removes fat in areas where the skin tends to hang or sag, such as the back of the arms. 

Before performing Cool Lipo, your surgeon will cleanse the treatment area, then inject it with a local anesthetic to numb it. After waiting for the anesthetic to kick in, a laser is directed under the skin and energy is released. As the laser is moved, the fatty cells break down and liquefy. The broken down/dissolved fat will either be removed by the doctor via a cannula or the body’s lymphatic system will be allowed to flush it out. The laser also stimulates collagen production over time and helps to tighten the skin in the area. 

After the procedure is complete, your doctor will apply a compressive dressing to the area to reduce swelling, promote healing, protect the area from the environment, and to help tighten the skin. It should be worm for approximately two to three days. Following this, patients will still have some discomfort and bruising. How long recovery will take depends on the patient and their body’s response to Cool Lipo. 

Results are noticeable after the procedure, with full results occurring over the course of a few months. 

In all, the procedure can take one to three hours depending on the area being treated. One session will cover most of the fatty areas that need to be removed, but this is not always the case. In some instances, patients will need a subsequent session.
