Pairing Laser Liposuction With Dermacare’s Semaglutide Weight Loss Injections AT DERMACARE MEDICAL AESTHETICS

When it comes to fat reduction, laser liposuction has gained quite a lot of popularity in the past few years. The laser-assisted liposuction treatment makes for a shorter recovery time and a higher fat reduction, allowing people worldwide to shed excess fat. That said, weight gain can still occur after liposuction, especially if those who use it continue their unhealthy eating habits.

This is why Dermacare Medical Aesthetics is excited to introduce semaglutide injections, the treatment that can potentially solve this issue and allow people to enjoy the results in the long term. When used together, semaglutide and laser lipo can complement one another, bringing to the table what the other lacks. In this blog, you will learn more about the two procedures and how they can help. 

What Is Laser Liposuction?

Laser liposuction is a procedure that is similar to standard liposuction through the use of cannulas but employs laser power as well. Small incisions are made in the skin where the laser is introduced, and the energy it delivers melts the fat in the target area. This separates the fat cells from one another and the rest of the tissue so the cannulas can easily suction the fat.

The procedure effectively removes stubborn fat pockets that are resistant to exercise and dieting. Within a few months, it can reduce up to 37 percent of the fat in the targeted area, leading to a slimmer body. As the laser cauterizes blood vessels immediately, bleeding is also kept to a minimum, which reduces side effects and recovery time. 

What Is Semaglutide for Weight Loss?

Semaglutide injections are treatments that were initially used to treat diabetes but were recently approved by the FDA as weight loss solutions. The drug mimics a hormone that naturally occurs in the gut as we eat – glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). This hormone tells the brain we are full and no longer need to eat. 

This action suppresses the appetite and reduces cravings since the brain thinks we have eaten enough. It also slows gastric emptying, making us feel fuller for longer. This prevents snacking between meals, reducing daily calorie intake and leading to visceral fat loss. For the most part, the treatment is an excellent option if one wishes to reduce significant amounts of fat, as a person can lose 12 percent of fat by week 28.

Why They Go Well Together

Laser liposuction is a great way to reduce stubborn fat pockets from different body areas, offering a well-defined contour. However, while it destroys the fat, it doesn’t do anything about the source of the fat itself. The same fat that was eliminated may not return, but new fat cells can still form due to an incorrect diet.

Where laser lipo treats the symptom, semaglutide injections treat the cause. These treatments train the body to no longer eat as much, decreasing the appetite. The injections only take effect for as long as the treatment is followed, but the body should grow accustomed to eating smaller meals.

The stomach eventually shrinks when the food intake is smaller, which reduces the appetite in the long term. This means that clients are less likely to need maintenance treatments or have to treat larger, difficult fat pockets. Once patients complete the semaglutide treatment, the body should maintain a stable contour as long as a healthy diet and a good exercise routine are followed.

Laser liposuction can also help with a part where semaglutide falls short: skin tightening. The warmth produced by the laser can trigger the body’s collagen and elastin production, helping it shrink as weight is lost with semaglutide. This can reduce unsightly skin sagging, especially if you plan to lose significant amounts of weight.
