Smart Lipo is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that is used for the reduction of excess body fat. It is a less invasive procedure than traditional liposuction because it uses laser technology instead of a cannula to break up the fat for removal. The process is more gentle and requires smaller incisions; therefore, it causes less bruising. If you’ve been looking for an alternative to more invasive options for fat loss and body contouring, laser lipo may be your answer.
About Smart Lipo
Laser stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. It uses light beams set at specific frequencies to perform the desired task. Using laser technology is a safe and precise way to break up the fat cells in the targeted area. It also is a more comfortable option. The laser used in liposuction liquefies the fat layers that reside in the midsection of the skin’s surface. This approach causes little damage to the skin’s surface, and general anesthetic is rarely necessary. It offers patients a much shorter downtime.
You should be in relatively good health in order to receive Smart Lipo, or laser lipo. In addition, it’s important to understand that this is not a weight loss procedure. Ideal candidates should be within 25 pounds of their ideal body weight before they undergo the procedure. Pregnant women and individuals with certain medical conditions, including hypertension, diabetes, cardiac conditions and kidney disorders should avoid the procedure. However, those patients who wish to reduce fat in the love handles, abdomen, hips and thigh areas are likely suitable candidates. Laser liposuction may also be used in the facial area, neck or breasts.
Side effects associated with laser liposuction are few. However, it is common to experience minor and temporary redness, swelling or bruising of the treatment areas. Be sure to share all your medical history and any medications you are taking during your consultation to reduce your chances of complications occurring.
