Laser Lipolysis

Laser treatment to remove excess body fat

Laser lipolysis a form of aesthetic surgery designed to remove excess body fat.


It involves the use of a laser to rapidly dissolve excess fat in target areas such as the thighs, abdomen, arms, neck and parts of the face.

It uses a minimally invasive, minor “keyhole” surgical procedure. Fotona’s laser lipolysis procedure does not require the use of a general anesthetic.

How our laser lipolysis treatment works

A very fine laser fibre is inserted into the treatment area where the laser light causes swelling and rupture of the adipocytes. This melts the unwanted fat tissue and once broken down it can either be absorbed by the body or removed by the clinician.

But what makes this treatment unique is that simultaneously, the laser also tightens the surrounding skin to prevent it from sagging after the removal of unwanted fat. The same laser can be used for skin tightening, tone and textural improvements elsewhere on the body – making this a highly effective, multi-purpose treatment option for fat reduction and anti ageing effects.

Our most advanced systems for laser lipolysis


Fotona's XP Line offers many treatment options and boasts enhanced speed and precision across both surgical and aesthetic treatments. The multi-application XP Dynamis incorporates a high performance QCW Nd:YAG surgical laser and a built-in, non-ablative, long-pulse Nd:YAG aesthetic laser. Having the two lasers at your fingertips enables an extremely wide treatment range including hyperhidrosis, EVLA and more.

Fotona's QCW Nd:YAG laser is considered the gold standard in aesthetic surgery, with several advantages compared to other laser sources, such as

A relatively low absorption rate in water The largest directly hea­ted volume of subcutaneous tissue The smallest undesirable thermal effect on neighbou­ring tissue, and A significantly higher ability to coagulate blood vessels
