As per PR Newswire:

LifeSculpt is minimally-invasive and offers a faster recovery time than traditional liposuction
Burlington, MA, /PRNewswire/

Palomar Medical Technologies, Inc., a leading researcher and developer for cosmetic treatments, has announced the nationwide availability of the LifeSculpt body sculpting laser procedure. LifeSculpt features the SlimLipo laser body sculpting technology, which selectively targets and "melts" fat in a minimally-invasive way. As a minimally-invasive procedure, LifeSculpt provides a faster recovery time as compared to traditional liposuction with little to no bruising, allowing patients to return to daily activities quickly.

LifeSculpt is the optimal choice for people who are already healthy, have tried diet and exercise and still have a problem area. The unique technology utilized in the LifeSculpt procedure allows access to even the most difficult-to-reach areas such as the fat under the chin, backs, arms, and inner thighs.

LifeSculpt allows physicians to remove excess fat and tighten the skin through laser-assisted lipolysis and subsequent fat removal. A recent limited study published in US Dermatology, by Robert Weiss, M.D., Director of the Maryland Laser, Skin, and Vein Institute; found that all subjects agreed that the LifeSculpt procedure significantly improved the appearance of the treated areas of their bodies. In addition, the study found that 100 percent of patients saw an improvement in skin's smoothness and tightness within three months after treatment.

"This study proved what I'd been experiencing in my own practice; LifeSculpt offers superior results, better than any other type of fat reduction and fat removal method on the market," said Dr. Weiss.

"During the recovery period after the LifeSculpt procedure, skin tightening may occur as new collagen is laid down in the layers of the skin. Improvement in skin firmness can continue for up to six months after the procedure; this is particularly gratifying to patients who have experienced significant skin laxity that is often associated with age and weight loss," noted Brooke Seckel, M.D., plastic surgeon at Boston Plastic Surgery Associates, Concord MA

"There is an emerging demand for this kind of option among consumers - people want stellar results, but do not want to have to take time out of their busy schedules to achieve those results," noted Richard Bankowski, Field Clinical Director for Palomar Medical Technologies, Inc."

Hmm... they're making an awful lot of miraculous claims (reminds me of when Thermage came out). Does LifeSculpt do something? Probably. But does it do everything they say, to the degree they claim? I'll believe it when I see it :)

Please note how I highlighted the part of the article that says it can last up to 6 months.

A very temporary solution (and costly over time) to a permanent problem.

6 months? LOL!

Like P.T. Barnum said,"There's a sucker born every minute", unfortunately. ;)
