Acne, cellulite and excess fat zapped with the flick of a switch? ... cientists have developed a laser technique that can target and melt fat under the skin. ...

Cellulite  deposits of subcutaneous fat and fibrous tissue that cause a dimpling effect on the overlying skin  and other surface body fat could be targeted, as well as the fatty plaques that form in arteries, leading to heart attacks, Dr Anderson said. ... Using the FEL, which is much more powerful than a conventional laser, the scientists were able to choose selected laser wavelengths that could heat up the fat, which was then broken down and excreted by the body.

They found that the process, called selective photothermolysis, did not affect the area of skin that was exposed to the beam.
