Cynosure SmartLipo

Some stubborn pockets of fat just won’t budge even with diet and exercise. But with the revolutionary body contouring technology known as SmartLipo, you can get be rid of those problem areas from love handles and inner or outer thighs to buttocks and bra bulge, double chins, loose skin on the arms, and more. SmartLipo is a minimally invasive procedure that involves inserting a thin tube containing a laser fiber into targeted fatty areas through a small incision, to liquify and then gently suction and permanently remove stubborn pockets of fat. The treatment delivers energy underneath the skin, so not only do you melt fat, but also tighten skin to achieve the shape you desire.

How Does SmartLipo Work?

Three wavelengths provide targeted treatments to disrupt fat; coagulate blood vessels and stimulate collagen which helps to tighten skin and improve elasticity. The Smartlipo procedure are conducted in-office and uses local anesthesia to numb only a specific area of the body being treated, so you are awake during the treatment.

• A very thin tube containing the Smartlipo laser fiber is inserted in targeted fatty areas through a small incision.

• The laser fiber delivers thermal energy directly to fat cells and disrupts the fatty tissue for easy removal.

• The laser literally melts the fat, which is removed with gentle suction. At the same time, tissue around the area tightens through coagulation, contributing to a smoother shape overall.

Most treatments last 1-2 hours, and most patients only need one treatment. Results can usually be seen within a week.

What’s the difference between laser lipo and regular liposuction?
In the conventional methods of liposuction, no laser technology is introduced. With SmartLipo, the use of a laser aids in breaking down fat cells. During this method, tissue cells also retract, which ultimately leads to tighter looking skin. It also cuts the procedure time in half, aids in faster recovery, and extracts more fat.
