Many people want to get rid of small pockets of troublesome fat but don't want to take time out of their busy schedules for surgery and recovery. LaserTight®, offered exclusively by Philadelphia and New York cosmetic surgeon Dr. Mark Solomon, is a quick, simple, non-invasive way to refine your look.
Benefits of LaserTight Laser Lipolysis
LaserTight, previously called LipoLaze, is a patented technology developed by Philadelphia and New York cosmetic surgeon Dr. Mark Solomon that simultaneously vaporizes unwanted fat and tightens the surrounding skin, much like Smartlipo™. Advantages of this technology include:
- Effective for small or localized pockets of unwanted fat
- Minimally invasive with minimal bruising and swelling
- Convenient, quick office procedure
- Improves skin tone by increases collagen production in treated areas
- Does not require sutures
Dr. Solomon can use LaserTight in conjunction with traditional liposuction in Philadelphia and New York to sculpt difficult to treat areas and make unwanted fat easier to extract. It also tightens skin on areas that sag after surgical procedures, such as those previously treated with liposuction.
Comparison to Smartlipo
LaserTight and Smartlipo both use laser technology to target unwanted fat cells. Dr. Solomon offers specialized variations of LaserTight for use on sensitive areas:
- EyeTight® treats unwanted fat on the eyelids and around the eye area.
- NeckTight® rejuvenates the chin, jaw line, and neck.
Unlike Smartlipo, LaserTight is designed specifically for the treatment of fat. Using patented technologies, Dr. Solomon achieves dramatic results due to the specific qualities of the laser light itself. The LaserTight beam specifically targets fat cells using a special wavelength of light that vaporizes the deposits from underneath the skin. The targeted laser beam also minimizes bruising and tightens skin.
Procedure & Recovery
Our laser lipolysis patients appreciate LaserTight because it is so convenient. Dr. Solomon performs this treatment as a simple office procedure with only local anesthesia for small areas. He inserts the wire-thin laser device under the skin in the treatment area to destroy unwanted fat. The treatment is usually complete in about 15 minutes and there are no sutures required. Larger areas may require the use of an outpatient surgical suite to achieve your goals.
Patients usually need only a day or two of rest after this minimally invasive procedure. In addition to vaporizing fat, the laser energy stimulates collagen production in the treated areas for about six to eight months after the procedure. The increased collagen fills out the skin to improve skin tone naturally.
Dr. Solomon's patients enjoy a smooth, more contoured look from quick, effective LaserTight treatments - usually without missing a day of work. They also appreciate their more refreshed and youthful appearance as skin tone continues to improve over the first six months.
