Laser Lipo V. Lipo

laser assisted lipo new england laser lipoLaser-assisted liposuction or laser liposuction is a state of the art cosmetic technology that provides stunning results. Designed in Europe, Laser-assisted liposuction decreases the bruising, swelling and pain related to traditional methods of liposuction. Laser-assisted lipo is a more comfortable liposuction treatment that helps patients achieve the body contour they have always wanted. Worcester, MA doctor Dr. Paul Willis has many years of experience using laser-assisted lipo and is able to obtain natural curves and smoother skin using the technology.


What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes undesired fat and smooths out lumps and bumps. Using high powered suction tubes, Dr. Willis sucks the fat out of trouble regions via tiny incisions. A vacuum pump sucks out the fat deposits leaving the patient with a smoother, more contoured shape.


How does laser-assisted liposuction work?

Laser-assisted lipo uses the addition of laser energy waves. These low-level waves focus on the treatment area. The laser penetrates the skin and weakens the walls of the fat cells allowing the fat to be more easily removed.  Through a tiny incision, a small cannula will be inserted under the skin to suck out the melted fat. The laser allows for less discomfort, minimal bruising and swelling and superior results compared to traditional liposuction.


Which parts of the body are optimal for laser liposuction?

Laser lipo can effectively eliminate fat in almost any region of the body. Females typically ask for fat removal from the knees, thighs, hips, and abdomen. For males, it is popular in the neck, arms, enlarged breasts, love handles, and abdomen. Laser liposuction can also be used to reduce overactive sweat glands. Using precise treatment, patients are still able to cool themselves without an excessive sweat.


What are the advantages of laser lipo?

Laser-assisted lipo has many advantages over traditional lipo methods. Patients enjoy a shorter downtime, with many patients returning to their daily routine the next day. Laser lipo is less vigorous and reduces swelling and bruising allowing for a more comfortable treatment.


If you have stubborn areas of fat build up, contact our New England Laser Lipo center. Dr. Willis will meet with you in a one-on-one consultation to help you determine if laser-lipo is right for you.

How many Botox injections will I need?

What is a good age to begin Botox treatment?

There is no “right” age to begin Botox as all patients age at different rates. Begining Botox treatments at the first signs of facial lines can prevent the development of permanent and deep crevices that may be more difficult to treat.

How long does Botox last?

Botox is a temporary treatment and typically lasts up to 6 months. Many patients see this as a benefit of Botox because it provides an opportunity for adjustments and incremental increases to achieve desired results with out ever looking “over done” or “stiff.”

Are you considering Lipo?

If you have stubborn fat that just will not go away, despite your active lifestyle and healthy diet, liposuction can be the go to solution. Dr. Willis of New England Laser Lipo offers both traditional, and laser liposuction treatment options. Understanding the two treatments can help patients choose which option will offer ideal results.

Dr. Willis provides personalized liposuction consultations and treatment plans. Our patient’s safety, health, and overall well being are our priority. A thorough exam will help determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction.

Traditional Liposuction

A traditional liposuction treatment will suction out fat in pre-determined “trouble areas”. Using hollow tubes, Dr. Willis loosens and then removes fat cells permanently. In most cases, patients undergo general anesthesia during treatment for optimal comfort. After treatment, results are typically instant although some patients experience discomfort in the form of bleeding, bruising and swelling. While this treatment requires a longer downtime than laser lipo, it may be more appropriate based on your overall health and personal goals.

Laser Liposuction

Laser liposuction is an innovative, minimally invasive treatment option for the removal of stubborn, unwanted fat. Laser lipo uses a high tech laser to destroy unwanted fat cells and stimulate the regeneration of skin cells for tighter, firmer skin. The laser virtually liquefies fat cells for easier, less intense removal. Laser lipo can be used to target fat in almost any region of the body.

Laser lipo generally requires only local anesthesia eliminating the need to undergo general anesthesia. Patients who receive laser lipo often experience significantly less bruising, and downtime is shorter than with traditional lipo.

Although there are many benefits to laser liposuction, it is not the ideal treatment for all patients. Laser lipo is typically recommended for patients close to their ideal weight. Traditional lipo can be used for patients looking to remove more substantial fat volume. Dr. Willis will discuss both options with you and determine your personal goals to decide which treatment plan is best.

Botox for a Better You

face rejuvenationBotox® Cosmetic is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the United States for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Botox can create a younger and fresher apperance in just 10 minutes. Botox has been used for over 20 years to treat wrinkles and facial expression lines. Worcester, MA cosmetic Dr. Paul Willis uses botox to target areas between the eyebrows that can make your expression look “angry”. Approved by the FDA, Botox injections are a safe and effective way to restore a more natural youthful appearance.

As we age the stresses of life and environmental stressors can begin to age the appearance of our skin. The first signs of aging often appear around the eyes and mouth in the form of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is a protein compound that is injected into designated muscle groups of the face. The Botox proteins weaken the muscles that over time have stiffened. Botox relaxes the appearance of those deep lines and crows feet. Many patients choose Botox because facial fillers can make the face appear uneven, especially in sensitive spots around the eyes, forehead, mouth and neck. Botox impacts the muscle directly, creating a smooth and natural appearance. Botox will reduce the fine lines around your eyes and can decrease the appearance of creases around your mouth.
