Back

Few anatomical features speak to one’s overall health and fitness like a well-sculpted back. For many, however, pockets of back fat prevent them from achieving the healthy, fit look they’re seeking. If you have tried to firm or sculpt a flabby back through diet and exercise but to no avail, you may be an ideal candidate for laser lipolysis. Laser lipolysis is also known as laser lipo, cool laser sculpting, and laser fat removal. It’s an effective, non-invasive fat removal system that produces astonishing results without pain or downtime.

Causes of Back Fat

Back fat can have a variety of causes, but the most prevalent is overall obesity. It stands to reason that if you have a high BMI, other areas, including your back, will also have fat deposits. This can be a result of a sedentary lifestyle, a caloric or high-carbohydrate diet, or a lethargic metabolism.

If, however, you have a disproportionately high amount of back fat — your back has more fat when compared to other parts of your body — the answer may be in your genes. Some people are genetically predisposed to have back fat.

Gender can also play a factor in the development or retention of back fat. Women tend to carry more weight in the hips and lower extremities, where men are fatter in their upper bodies. With all other things being equal, men tend to develop fat on their backs.

Why It’s Hard to Lose Back Fat

If you Google “why it’s hard to lose back fat,” your search engine results will be filled with suggestions about how to lose back fat. For some people, they really can lose back fat through a combination of weights, cardio exercise, and diet. But that isn’t the case for everyone. Many people can reduce their body mass and overall fat percentage and still have flabby areas above the waist, under their arms, and around their rear shoulders.

One of the reasons it’s difficult to lose back fat is that portions of the back are difficult to exercise. Your body is constructed to bend all the way forward, but only partially backward. The less-than-dynamic range of motion of the back makes it difficult to work your lower back the way you can work your abdominal muscles. Genetics also make it difficult for some to lose back fat. If your parents and grandparents had excessive back fat, you might have difficulty losing back fat yourself.

How Laser Fat Removal Works for Back Fat

Fortunately, there is another solution for back fat removal. Laser fat removal targets the specific areas of your body — in this case, your back — where fat buildup exists. These low-level lasers painlessly penetrate your fat cells, bore minute holes in them, and emulsify the lipids (fats) contained inside. This process allows the liquified fats to drain from your fat cells. The body’s lymphatic system then breaks down the fats and uses them or disposes of them.

Emerald Laser is the preeminent laser fat removal system. Using ten low-energy 532-nanometer lasers, the Emerald Laser process targets the stubborn fat deposits in your back. Emerald Laser by Erchonia is the only laser lipo product to receive premarket clearance from the FDA and has received 18 other FDA market clearances.

What to Expect after Getting Laser Back Fat Removal

Laser fat removal is a painless, non-invasive, and quick treatment. If you’re interested in knowing whether laser lipo is a viable solution for your undesirable back fat, contact an Emerald Laser lipolysis provider in your area. Here’s what you can expect:

  • During your initial consultation, there will be a thorough review of your health history and a consultation regarding your fat reduction goals.
  • If you are a good candidate for laser lipo, your provider will recommend a course of treatment. Laser lipolysis sessions are sold in packages of six and cost from $1,500 to $2,500.
  • Unlike surgical liposuction or fat freezing, there is no preparation period. You can begin your treatments immediately.
  • After your session, you can get dressed and go about your day. There is no downtime with laser lipolysis.
  • You will notice a reduction in your back fat over the next few weeks as the lipids drain from your fat cells.

Emerald Laser successfully completed three double-blind clinical trials with no known side effects. We’ve also had experience treating thousands of patients over all areas of the body and have had little to no side effects.

Frequently Asked Questions about Back Fat Removal

The following are some of the questions we receive from patients and providers. If you are interested in laser back fat removal or becoming a provider, contact our office. Our specialists will be happy to discuss your questions with you.

How Is Laser Lipolysis Different from Liposuction or Fat Freezing?

One of the most significant differences is that the Emerald Laser fat removal system is painless. Both liposuction and cryolipolysis involve anesthetic or anesthesia and a recovery period. With laser lipo, neither anesthetics nor anesthesia is required. Additionally, fat freezing and liposuction kill fat cells. This might seem like a smart way to permanently get rid of fat, but it can actually lead to other areas of your body disproportionately accumulating fat. Laser lipo empties fat cells but doesn’t kill them.

How Long Will It Be Before I See Results?

Because the fat loss is the result of liquified fats draining from the fat cells, the process is gradual, but you should be able to see some reduction within days of the first treatment. As you go through your series of treatments, you will see the fat shed away.
