Cool Lipo – Laser liposuction Chicago

Why Choose CoolLipo?

As we grow older our skin begins to show the signs of sun, lifestyle, and aging. The face and neck are exposed to the sun more than any other part of the body; therefore, they both tend to age more quickly. As these aging effects begin to appear we look for topical formulas and non-invasive treatments to help reduce future aging, plus improve current appearance. Many prefer not to undergo extensive surgical face and neck lifts due to the expense and risk. Additionally, these procedures require significant time for the face and neck to heal, not always an option for people with limited recovery time.

Cool Lipo (laser-assisted lipolysis) is a new, minimally invasive technology that liquefies fat for easy removal. It is a laser-based procedure that breaks up and removes fat cells in areas such as under the chin, neck, and jowls or areas with loose skin such as the arms. In addition, the unique wavelength of the CoolLipo laser system directly contracts collagen and tightens the skin, an effect not seen with standard liposuction.
