Laser lipolysis, which is a regional slimming method, is a technique applied by the disappearance of jowl contours as a result of excess fat storage in the jowl area even if you are at your ideal weight.

In this method, bleeding or bruising is not expected, collagen synthesis is triggered by laser and thus tightening and recovery is expected in the food.
Laser lipolysis, unlike cold lipolysis, takes place in operating room conditions.
