Emerald Laser lipolysis is a process that targets fat in and around the thighs with no surgery or downtime.

Overview of Inner-Thigh Fat

Inner-thigh fat is the fatty deposits that span from the inside of the thigh, above the knees, and continues up to the upper legs. In most cases, inner-thigh fat is a symptom of obesity, but that may not always be the case. Individuals with an overall low body mass index (BMI) can still retain stubborn fatty deposits around their inner thighs. There are, of course, exercises that can reduce thigh fat and tighten muscles around your thighs, but because the inner-thigh muscles (the pectineus and the adductor muscles) pull inward, it’s difficult to work them in the same way you can with other muscles in the legs at the gym. If you’ve tried to develop a workout that goes after the fat in your thighs, you may be fighting an uphill battle.

Causes of Inner-Thigh Fat

While it is true that one of the most significant causes of inner-thigh fat is obesity, a high BMI may not be the only factor at play. You may be one of those individuals who are predisposed to carrying extra weight around the thighs. Having disproportionately large inner-thighs may be a genetic condition passed down to you through your DNA. Gender is another culprit when it comes to inner-thigh fat. While men tend to accumulate fat around the belly, women are more likely to develop fat in their hips and thighs. This does not, however, mean that men aren’t susceptible to thigh fat. Inner-thigh fat can be problematic for either gender. Finally, age has also been connected to adiposity around the thighs. The older you get, the more difficult it is to lose fat in specific areas.

How Laser Fat Removal Works for Inner Thigh Fat

As you can see, losing inner-thigh fat on your own can be extraordinarily difficult. But there are alternatives. Medical science has developed a number of invasive, semi-invasive, and non-invasive procedures to remove fat. Liposuction, for instance, is a surgical technique that removes fat cells from the inner thighs. Cryolipolysis is a semi-invasive technique that involves applying freezing temperatures to fat cells in order to destroy them. Both of these techniques have some marked drawbacks, including pain, the need for anesthesia/anesthetic, and downtime after the procedures.

Laser lipolysis, on the other hand, is a painless, non-surgical technique that can be performed at our provider facilities in under an hour. The Emerald Laser system targets your fat cells with ten low-level, microscopic lasers. The lasers penetrate the fat cells, boring tiny pores in the cell wall. The heat from the laser is enough to emulsify fat lipids (which have a low melting point). These lipids drain from the cells and are disposed of by the body’s lymphatic system.

Unlike other fat reduction techniques, laser lipo doesn’t kill your fat cells. Your fat cells will empty, but they will be left intact in case they are needed for future storage. Processes that kill fat cells can encourage the relocation of new fats to other areas of the body and even around vital organs. Because of this distinction, Emerald Laser lipolysis is one of the safest fat reduction techniques on the market.

What to Expect After Getting Laser Removal

Emerald Laser has been used to remove fat from all areas of the body for thousands of patients. Here’s how it works:

  • During your initial appointment, your Emerald Laser provider will determine your eligibility for non-surgical laser lipo. During this consultation, they will determine your goals and expectations and discuss with you the efficacy of the treatment for you.
  • You will schedule your first session. It does not require any preparation and you will not need anesthesia or anesthetic. You will change into a gown and will be taken to the treatment area. The entire session can be completed in under an hour, so you can even do it on a long lunch break.
  • You will begin to lose fat between treatments as the lipids in your fat cells are disposed of by the body’s lymphatic system.
  • You can resume normal activities as soon as you leave the facility and between each session.
