SmartLipo is an FDA approved laser liposuction procedure. This is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted lipo procedure that targets trouble spots like the abdomen, thighs and neck, and permanently eliminates fat. The Smartlipo laser fiber is inserted through a very small tube into your body and it ruptures the fat cell membranes.
Smart Lipo is beneficial because is offers minimal downtime, and less drama to the body than traditional liposuction. Fat is actually liquified to be removed from the body. Because Smartlipo actually tightens the skin through coagulation, you also get the benefit of tightening and firming skin where the fat is removed.
Highlights of SmartLipo:
- Local anesthesia
- Small incisions, about the size of the tip of a pen
- Fat cells are permanently destroyed
- Liquefied fat is gently suctioned out to reduce trauma
- New collagen is produced from coagulation making skin tighter and smoother
- Typically, only one treatment is required dependent on the number of areas to be treated.
- Results may vary, but usually can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over three to six months.
