Why do we get Fat?
The storing of fat reserves within the body is not only desirable, it is vital to the wellbeing and maintenance of a healthy life. The trick is to store only enough fat sufficient to our needs, and not to store extra reserves through the overconsumption of food and drink and lack of physical exercise.
When we consume excess calories, the fat produced is stored in Adipocytes, only being released as energy when the body consumes too little nourishment or undertakes strenuous exercise. Even when the Adipocytes have been depleted of fat stores they cannot be removed from the body through conventional diet and exercise. They will remain permanently, being restored as we consume excess calories and causing those stubborn areas of unsightly fat which we all have.
As we age, the body will find it more difficult to maintain the balance of calorie intake and energy output and we will, inevitably, store more fat.
How Laser Liposuction works
Laser Liposuction/Lipolysis or ‘SmartLipo’ is one of the new generations of techniques developed to destroy the Adipocytes within the body, as opposed to removing them as in more traditional forms of Liposuction. The procedure is considered to offer a more gentle application, causing less trauma to the treatment site, and delivering more effective results to the patient. Because the Adipocytes are destroyed by the immune system within the body, the skin at the treatment area has time to contract as the fat diminishes over a period of time, leading to less slack and wrinkled skin following the procedure.
