Smartlipo Fat Removal & Skin Tightening
SmartLipo body sculpting (also known as 360 degree liposuction or laser liposuction) is a revolutionary, minimally invasive treatment that does something no fitness routine in the world can: permanently destroy fat cells. Since your body has only a finite amount of these cells, no new fat cells come back in the treatment area, and you can finally achieve lasting results.
How does Laser Body Sculpting work?
The Smartlipo laser-assisted lipolysis procedure is performed using a one millimeter cannula (or tube) inserted below the skin’s surface. A laser fiber inside of the cannula delivers energy directly to fat cells, causing them to rupture and drain away as liquid. Simultaneously, tissue around the area coagulates, resulting in overall tighter skin tissue.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Laser liposuction is ideal for the neck, jawline, arms, breasts, bra fat, abdomen, love handles, saddle bags, inner and outer thighs and knees.
Am I a good candidate for Smartlipo?
Smartlipo laser body sculpting is meant for areas that do not respond to diet or exercise. The perfect candidate is in good health and of normal body weight.
How does Laser Body Sculpting compare to conventional liposuction?
Conventional liposuction is meant to remove large amounts of fat. However, this treatment can also leave behind unsightly pockets of sagging skin. Laser liposuction is often a perfect complement, because the laser activates collagen production to tighten remaining skin tissues.
Is there a recovery period?
Smartlipo laser body sculpting is a minimally invasive procedure which usually requires only local anesthesia. Some light trauma can occur, but you’ll be able to return to work in a couple of days and resume exercise after two weeks.
How many treatments are required?
Typically, only one treatment is required. Results will start to be seen within a week, with continued improvement over the next 3 to 6 months. A compression garment may be worn for a short period after laser body contouring, depending on the treated body area.
Are you awake during Smartlipo?
Yes, SmartLipo is done in office under local anesthesia.
