SmartLipo laser body sculpting permanently destroys fat cells, adding the benefits of laser light energy to traditional liposuction for a quicker recovery and a skin-tightening bonus. This revolutionary, less-invasive body contouring treatment is ideal for problem areas of your body that will not respond to diet and exercise alone.
The laser-assisted lipolysis procedure uses a one millimetre tube inserted through and under the skin into the subcutaneous fat. A laser fibre inside the tube delivers energy directly to fat cells, causing them to rupture and drain away as liquid. Your body has a finite amount of fat cells so, once destroyed, new ones do not come back. Simultaneously, the tissue around the area coagulates and shrinks, resulting in overall tighter skin tissue.
The procedure requires only local anesthesia. Usually, only 1 treatment is required. Results can be seen within a week with continued improvement over 3 to 6 months.
SmartLipo can be used on the neck, jawline, arms, breasts, abdomen, “love handles”, “saddle bags”, inner and outer thighs and knees. It is best suited for smaller areas of the body that require a “touch up”.
It is not a replacement for conventional lipsosuction which is meant to remove large volumes of fat. SmartLipo is also a perfect complement to conventional liposuction as it can reduce the unsightly pockets of skin left behind by liposuction.
How will I heal from laser liposuction?
The laser technology helps to seal blood vessels as they are cut, limiting bleeding, bruising and swelling and speeding recovery times. The minimally invasive laser technology also means patients experience less post-procedure pain than in the traditional liposuction method.
