Fatty areas that are normally resistant to dieting and physical exercise can now be treated with Body-Jet, a totally revolutionary minimally invasive approach to body contouring.
Body-Jet is an innovative technique designed specifically for the removal of excess fat and localised adiposity thanks to the selective interaction of the laser beam with the adipocytes (fat cells). Body-Jet provokes the breaking up of the membranes of the adipose cells, lipocytes, allowing the elimination of their liquid oily contents in a natural manner.
The Body-Jet technique is performed by means of an innovative laser specifically developed for this purpose. It uses an Nd:YAG Laser with extremely short pulses and very high peak of power, in order to avoid tissues heating. Body-Jet works safely, effectively and with almost no down time.
The advantages of Body-Jet:
The Body-Jet procedure takes around one hour, depending on the treatment area.
Yes, Body-Jet is safe, because Body-Jet only targets the action specifically to the adipocytes; Body-Jet coagulates the blood vessels thus Body-Jet reduces blood loss.
See Body-Jet FAQs page for possible side effects.
For localised deposits of fat just one Body-Jet session will be needed, while for larger areas of fat volume the Body-Jet procedure may be repeated.
Initial results of your Body-Jet treatment will be visible fairly quickly, the final result being apparent after three to four months; this allows time for the elimination of the lysate and collagen stimulation to cause skin tightening.
Yes, the Body-Jet gives a permanent effect.
You can return to your normal activities almost immediately after the Body-Jet procedure, although it is advisable to avoid strenuous sports and saunas for two weeks and intense massage for four to five weeks. A valuable adjunct to the Body-Jet treatment is by soft Dermodynamic soft massage by using the Triactive System.
