Are you unhappy with the way your body looks because of excess fat that you just can’t seem to get rid of? If so, there’s a safe, easy, and quick way to eliminate your problem areas. Smartlipo is a laser that eliminates fat gently and without suction. It is a revolutionary and minimally-invasive procedure that our surgeons use to gently liquefy and remove fat to sculpt body contours and tighten skin with less downtime and side effects.
Both Aqualipo and Smartlipo are used in our two-state liposuction process. First, we use the body jet to dislodge and flush away large areas of fat. Then, we use the Smartlipo laser to get to the most stubborn last remnants of fat and help tone and tighten the skin. In fact, the brand-name Aqualipo stands for this two-part procedure, combining water-based liposuction with laser Smartlipo.
FDA-approved as one the first laser based lipo treatments, a tiny laser fiber, slightly larger than a hair (approximately one-third millimeter in diameter) is inserted into the skin. The fiber is gently moved back and forth as the laser’s energy is delivered directly to the fat cells, making them easy to drain away. In addition, as the laser energy interacts with the dermis it results in skin shrinkage or tightening.
Due to the small size of the cannula, Smartlipo is a minimally-invasive procedure and can be performed with local numbing. Other notable benefits of this laser lipo method include:
