Overview and Causes of Thigh Fat

The thighs are the area of the legs between the hips and knees around the circumference of the legs. When it comes to thigh fat, however, it may also include the areas where the thighs connect to the knees, hips, and buttocks.

Thigh fat may be the result of general obesity. If you have a large frame, it stands to reason that you will also have fat around your thighs. Obesity can be the result of a caloric or carby diet, a sedentary lifestyle, slow metabolism, or a combination of two or more of these factors.

But even if you are relatively fit and have a normal BMI, you may still have thigh fat. Thigh fat can also be the result of genetics. Some people just carry weight in their thighs because of the way they’re genetically coded. Gender is another thigh fat factor. Women tend to carry fat on their thighs and hips, where men are more likely to gain weight in their stomachs.

Why It’s Hard to Lose Thigh Fat

For some people, losing thigh fat is about as difficult as losing fat on other parts of their body. For others, the thighs are the last place to lose fat, and it can be extraordinarily difficult to slim. If you are having a hard time losing thigh fat, it may be because of the types of exercises that you’re doing.

For instance, if you spend more time at the gym working your upper body, your legs may lose fat slowly. Lack of cardiovascular exercise may be another factor in your inability to lose thigh fat. However, you may be genetically predisposed to retain fat in your thighs. If this is the case, you may have to seek medical treatments, like laser lipolysis, to lose fat.

How Laser Fat Removal Works for Thigh Fat

The human body has adipose cells or fat cells throughout the body. Lipids or fats are stored inside these cells when you consume more calories than you burn. As you gain weight, the cells continue to fill with fats. Eventually, the fats will harden and become more difficult for the body to burn off.

The Emerald Laser method uses ten low-level or “cool” lasers to gently penetrate the adipose cells, leaving minute pores in the cell walls. The 532-nanometer lasers also gradually emulsify or liquefy the fats. The fats then drain through the pores where the body’s lymphatic system naturally dispenses with them.

What to Expect after Getting Laser Removal

When you come to an Emerald Laser provider for laser thigh fat removal, you’ll meet with a specialist to discuss your goals and health history. If you are a good candidate for thigh fat removal, you can begin your first treatment immediately. The sessions last less than an hour, and since there is no downtime, you can go about your day as soon as you leave. The process is painless, so you won’t require an anesthetic or anesthesia. You will notice a gradual reduction in the targeted areas over the next four weeks. As you continue treatments, you will continue to see a gradual decrease in thigh fat cells.

Frequently Asked Questions about Laser Lipolysis and Thigh Sculpting

The following FAQ is meant to provide general information. For a consultation about your particular body goals and Emerald Laser’s suitability for you, contact a provider in your area.

Is Emerald Laser FDA Approved?

Yes. Emerald Laser is the only laser market cleared by the FDA for overall body circumference reduction.

Does Laser Fat Removal Kill Fat Cells?

The Emerald Laser process does not destroy or remove fat cells by design. Unlike liposuction, which surgically removes fat cells or fat freezing, which destroys fat cells, laser lipolysis drains the fat cells, but otherwise leaves them intact. Destroying fat cells can lead to an undesirable condition where excess fats are stored in other parts of your body, leading to a disproportionate enlargement of the remaining fat cells. This can even be dangerous as fats build up around vital organs.

Will My Thighs Remain Slim?

When you come in for your treatment, your laser specialist will discuss with you the importance of a healthy lifestyle going forward. You can put the fat back inside the fat cells if you overindulge in foods and/or lead a sedentary lifestyle. With a sensible diet and routine exercise, however, your reduction should hold.

How Much Does Emerald Laser Cost?

Emerald Laser sessions are sold in packages of six and cost from $250 to $450 per session. Pricing depends on the area you’re located in and the type of treatment you desire.

Are There Any Side Effects?

After over a decade of research and practical applications, there are no known side effects for laser lipolysis.
