SmartLipo utilizes a laser through a small needle or cannula. The laser disrupts the fat cells reducing the unwanted fat deposits. The laser energy is also transmitted to the overlying skin, producing tightening.
Since the SmartLipo procedure is performed under local anesthesia, there is very little pain or discomfort. You may feel a minor stinging sensation and an impression of tugging at your skin during the SmartLipo treatment, but these discomforts are minimal.
Does SmartLipo Work?
SmartLipo can be performed almost anywhere there is fat on the body (essentially everywhere). The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia; it is minimally invasive due to the size of the small cannula (1 mm), and the results are dramatic. This produces a much faster recovery time with less bruising than traditional liposuction.
The laser used in SmartLipo gently heats your skin. This gentle heat produces collagen, which is your body’s natural way of rejuvenating itself. As a result, the skin around the area in which Smart Lipo is performed is automatically tightened up.
SmartLipo has become a popular fat loss and cellulite removal procedure in cosmetic surgery offices around the country, offering almost painless solutions to fat loss by removing fat cells for good.
Although it looks like a ‘quick solution’ for anyone with multiple uses, it’s a cosmetic procedure that requires constant maintenance to enjoy lasting results. Laser SmartLipo eliminates fat cells – and not just shrinks like other cellulite-reducing therapies – but you can’t lose weight after the treatment is over.
