Dr. Markarian offers laser therapy for body treatments at MD TLC, his primary practice location in Wellesley.
Unwanted Body Fat: Body contouring is the #1 aesthetic surgical procedure in the United States of America. This is a common request from both men and women. The gold standard of removing unwanted fat is liposuction. Adding a laser under the skin to assist in liposuction improves the recovery (less bruising and pain) and improves the result by tightening the skin and liquefying the fat for easy removal. One treatment with minimal downtime can yield the best results.
Minimally-Invasive Laser Liposuction: Removal of unwanted body fat is the #1 aesthetic surgical procedure for both men and women. This procedure is performed in the office while you are awake and comfortable. The addition of the laser to the procedure adds precision in removing fat, smoothing and tightening the skin, and can improve recovery.
Cellulite occurs in almost all women over the age of 35. It is caused by fat cells below the skin surface that bulge up and cause an irregular (or granular) appearance to the skin. This change occurs as the fibrous bands below the skin loosen. Treatment is targeted at firming up the fibrous bands as well as reducing the fat below the skin (subcutaneous fat). Radiofrequency technology with precise control of temperature and depth of energy allows us to impart a structural change to the skin and fat which improves the appearance of cellulite. A series of 6 treatments, plus maintenance, is typically recommended. Some patients require laser-assisted liposuction prior to treatment.
Skin Laxity or a loss of “tight” skin is a common concern. Due to recent advances in technology, particularly monitoring of tissue temperature, we have been able to better optimize patient results. Several treatment options are available. A minimally invasive treatment option where heating is performed under the skin achieves tightening in just one treatment. A third-generation radiofrequency machine can also be used in a series of six or more treatments.
Skin tightening is one of the latest advances in age-defying treatments to firm the face & neck, abdomen, upper-arms, legs, buttocks, and can improve the appearance of cellulite. Using a third-generation radiofrequency technology, treatments are comfortable, safe, and have been optimized by monitoring skin temperature. A series of treatments are required, and you can resume normal activities immediately after treatment.
Leg Veins: Unsightly leg veins occur in one-third of women. Varicose veins require an invasive surgical procedure that is usually done in the office. With lasers, we treat spider veins (small leg veins) that are 3 millimeters or less with a deep penetrating vascular laser. Typically, 2 to 3 treatments can improve the appearance of a leg vein by 50%.
