Laser Liposuction Jump Starting Many Minnesotans New Years' Resolutions
Submitted by: Skin Rejuvenation Clinic, PA
(OPENPRESS) February 11, 2012 -- Mark Hagberg, MD, owner of the Minneapolis-area cosmetic clinic / medical spa Skin Rejuvenation Clinic, says more and more clients are turning to ProLipo laser-assisted liposuction to help jump start their new year's resolutions.
According to Dr. Hagberg, ProLipo cases have always been steady after the first of the year but this year he has noticed that more clients are coming in for laser lipo after battling their stubborn body bulges with rigorous exercise in years past.
"Don't get me wrong," said Dr. Hagberg. "ProLipo laser liposuction is not a substitute for diet and exercise. Yet I find that it is the ideal treatment for those that have an area of the body that is out of proportion to the rest of their body. These stubborn areas often persist despite diet and exercise and they are precisely the areas that we like to target with laser lipo."
Dr. Hagberg explained that ProLipo is ideal for those patients near or at their normal body weight. He continued, "What I'm seeing is an increase in the number of patients who tell me their ProLipo procedure has served as incentive to continue their healthy diet and exercise regimen. Rather than continue to fight predisposed pockets of fat year after year with no success, patients are turning to ProLipo to kick-off their new year's resolution to obtain a new silhouette," he said. "After a ProLipo procedure, patients see a reduction in fatty tissue virtually overnight so it provides ample motivation for patients to keep their bodies trim and healthy in the new year and beyond."
The Edina-based clinic has offered ProLipo laser lipo since 2008 and Skin Rejuvenation Clinic's procedure bookings have held strong ever since. Dr. Hagberg has transformed over 1,300 body areas, from abdomens and thighs to chins and arms.
FDA-approved in 2007, the laser liposuction technique does not require a patient to be "put to sleep" with general anesthesia. Instead, tumescent lidocaine is used to fill the area which provides localized numbing, so the patient is kept relaxed, comfortable and awake, able to communicate with the physician. Unlike traditional liposuction, ProLipo laser-assisted liposuction actually liquefies fat cells before they are removed causing much less trauma to tissue, resulting in decreased bleeding, swelling and bruising. This ultimately leads to a speedier recovery. Dr. Hagberg confirmed that most of his patients return to work in just two days.
A bonus to the ProLipo procedure is the skin tightening effect that follows. ProLipo procedures cause the body to stimulate production of collagen, resulting in smoother and tighter skin in the targeted area, with continued tightening for up to six months.
ProLipo laser liposuction technology is similar to the body contouring technology offered by brands such as SmartLipo / Smart Lipo, Cool Lipo, SlimLipo and Vaser Liposelection.
Dr. Mark Hagberg has trained with many of the top plastic surgeons and cosmetic dermatologists in the country. He trains physicians, physician assistants, and nurses on various anti-aging laser and injectable procedures and was a featured speaker at the 2011 Sciton Summit, a national meeting held by the manufacturer of ProLipo laser-assisted liposuction technology and equipment, Sciton, Inc. Dr. Hagberg's practice has also been used by Sciton as an observational practice to feature their laser lipo technology to those interested in learning more about the body contouring / fat reduction technology.
