Laser Lipo produces pores in fat cells by stimulating an enzyme, cytochrome oxidase found in mitochondria, which is sensitive to laser light. The end result is the destruction of cell membrane fat is that it creates pores that make it easy for intra-cellular (fat inside the cell ) fat to be released. Laser Lipo also stimulates lipase, an enzyme, that breaks down triglycerides into fatty acids and glycerol.
The fat cell shrinks and loses its round shape due to the changing of the permeability of the membrane. The pores heal later but the fat cell remains small.
