Endolift: the treatment of laxity and minimal body fat
True beauty lies in the beholder’s eyes
Small localized fat deposits and laxity of the body skin (knees, the inside part of the knee, abdomen, and arms) can be improved by using a fiber laser of 1470 nm. The single-use optical fiber (up to 400 microns thick) connected to the device is inserted under the skin in the area of fat localization and is moved “forward and backward” in a uniform manner in the entire area to be treated. The tip of the optical fiber emits energy (the wavelength of 1470 nm) that interacts with the fat and water. It causes lysis of adipose tissue (which will be reabsorbed) but, above all, heating of the water in the deepest layers of the dermis. The heating of the water will lead to the contraction of the tissues and improvement of laxity. The treatment is usually performed without anaesthesia and may require the use of air at -20°C (to cool the body surface) when are used fibres of the diameter not greater than 400 microns or equal. Large size fibers will require local anaesthesia. The session can be repeated after some months to improve the obtained effect.
TYPE OF TREATMENT
Treatment with fiber laser of 1470 nm
INFORMED CONSENT REQUIRED
Yes
TECHNOLOGY USED
Eufoton LaseMar 1500
LENGTH OF EACH TREATMENT
About 40 min (it depends on the surface to be treated)
NUMBER OF TREATMENTS
1-2
TIME BETWEEN TREATMENTS
Not less than 2-3 months
TYPE OF ANAESTHETIC

SIDE-EFFECTS (ALSO TEMPORARY)
Light edema (swelling) and temporary erythema (redness). The procedure is rarely painful, and often only at some points. Some bruising may persist for a few days after the treatment.
PRECAUTIONS BEFORE TREATMENT
Avoid to assume antiplatelet drugs or anticoagulants
PRECAUTIONS AFTER TREATMENT
  Useful, but optional the use of graduated compression stockings of the 1st class of the compression 1 or 70-140 denier
