Laser Lipolysis with Cellulaze™ and Slimlipo™: Focused Laser Engergy for an Even Skin Appearance

Sometimes diet and exercise cannot help: flabby skin stays flabby, small areas of fat stubbornly remain and unwelcome cellulite refuses to go away. The skin experts at Rosenpark Klinik are specialized in state-of-the-art and simultaneously low-risk methods for perfectioning your figure.

One of these is laser lipolysis: focused laser engergy for an even skin appearance.

Laser lipolysis:

  • is for today the most effective method against cellulite on the thighs, buttocks and upper arms;
  • also evens out other areas of the body, bulges, pockets of fat and annoying dimples;
  • is suitable for the treatment of age-related elastosis;
  • perfectly supplements the results of the liposuction.

At Rosenpark Klinik we use the Cellulaze™ and the Slimlipo™ system both by Cynosure for laser lipolysis.

How does the procedure go?

Targeted energy loosens, heats up and liquefies the fatty tissue in the upper-most subcutaneous layers during laser lipolysis. At the same time, the focused engergy modifies the connective tissue stricture that is responsible for the typical cellulite dimples.

  • The immediate effect: By the heat of the laser the connective tissue attachment of the skin becomes tighter.
  • The long-term effect: In the weeks after the treatment the denaturated collagen is eliminated and replaced by new connective tissue – strictures and dimples improve and level out.

What sort of anesthesia is necessary?

The respective areas are locally numbed with tumescent local anesthesia. To this end, a highly diluted anesthesia solution is injected into the tissue in large quantities.

The advantages of the tumescent local anesthesia for laser lipolysis:

The patient is awake and:

  • can position him/herself;
  • can tense individual muscles;
  • can possibly stand up for a symmetry check;
  • thanks to the basic tension of his/her muscles, the body contour can be seen in any lying position.

For more information about your options for a comfortable, pain-free treatment see the anesthesia section.

When will I be able to resume my regular activities?

As a rule, patients can generally resume their regular daily activities in three to four days after the treatment. The exterior healing is generally complete after two to four weeks – without physical limitations during this time, except for a compression garment you shall wear during that time.

You can find more information in our "Body shaping" information sheets, which you can request from us free of charge.

Expert tip

Dr. Sonja Sattler: “The combination of laser lipolysis and liposuction is currently the state-of-the-art in body contouring for patients with excess skin.”

What else you can do

  • After treatment, our Cosmetic Department will be glad to recommend a special skin care program in order to make the healing process as easy as possible.
  • We also recommend lymph drainage in order to increase absorption of undesirable swelling in the first weeks after the treatment. We offer this procedure at our Rosenpark Studio.
  • You should also drink a lot of water in order to enhance metabolization during the woundhealing process.
  • For cellulite patients we recommend additional treatment with the gentle SmoothShapes® or Venus Legacy™ methods.
