How Does Laser Liposuction Work?

Smartlipo laser body sculpting is a minimally invasive procedure that removes fat from your problem areas including the neck, jawline, arms, breasts, abdomen, thighs, and knees. The laser energy liquefies fat cells, which are then removed from the area using suction. At the same time, Smartlipo laser liposuction stimulates new collagen production to tighten the remaining skin. Smartlipo treatments allow you to achieve smoother and firmer results than surgical liposuction after only one treatment.

How is Smartlipo Different from Surgical Liposuction?

Smartlipo laser body contouring is a less invasive way to achieve similar results to those of surgical procedures. After undergoing surgical liposuction, patients often need follow-up surgeries to remove excess skin. During Smartlipo treatments, excess fat is removed and the heat from the laser is able to stimulate collagen production that will tighten and smooth out the remaining skin. Since laser liposuction is minimally invasive, patients recover more quickly from the procedure.

What to Expect During Laser Body Sculpting

Smartlipo laser liposuction is performed under local anesthesia to alleviate pain and discomfort, while allowing patients to recover quickly. Some soreness will occur, but because laser body sculpting is minimally invasive, patients can return home following the procedure. Most people can go back to work within a few days and return to exercising in about two weeks. Results will begin to appear in the week after treatment, with the best outcomes visible in the following three to six months.

Minimally Invasive Neck and Face Lifts with the PrecisionTx™

Do you want to look younger, but don’t have the time for a face lift that requires long periods of rest and recovery time? With minimally invasive PrecisionTx laser facelifts, sagging skin on your neck and jawline can be lifted and tightened to take years off of your appearance with just a few days of downtime.

 

How Does Small Area Laser Body Contouring Work?

PrecisionTx laser facelift procedures are effective because they precisely target the neck and jawline with powerful laser energy. During the procedure, extra fat cells are removed from the area through a small incision. The laser energy also generates heat that stimulates new collagen production to tighten the skin on the neck and jawline. As a result, the sagging skin is naturally lifted and revitalized without damaging the surrounding skin.

Target Your Problem Areas with SculpSure™ Non-Invasive Fat Reduction

Are you tired of working hard at the gym only to be left with pockets of stubborn fat that refuse to disappear? Finally, there is a revolutionary non-surgical procedure that is cleared by the FDA to remove stubborn fat from your abdomen and love handles. In less than 30 minutes, SculpSure can deliver the results you’ve been waiting for!

How Does SculpSure Work?

SculpSure uses a 1060nm laser with unique energy modulation technology to provide a comfortable patient experience. SculpSure delivers heat below the surface of the skin to destroy the fat cells. Patients will feel the heat from the laser, but constant cooling technology keeps the skin safe during the procedure. The machine has four applicators that can be placed anywhere on the abdomen and flanks. The applicators allow for treatments to be customized according to your body type and problem areas. Some patients may prefer to place all four applicators on their stomachs, while others may place two on each flank. If the applicators become loose, the treatment will stop immediately, keeping patients safe and minimizing the risk of side effects.

What to Expect During SculpSure Treatments

SculpSure treatments last just 25 minutes! After a brief warm up period, you will feel intense heat as the laser cycles through periods of heating and cooling. The heat gradually builds and is quickly followed by a cooling period. Your provider will be in the room with you and can turn down the energy if the treatment feels too intense. Patients rarely find the treatment to be unbearable and many are able to check emails, read a book, or watch a TV show while undergoing treatment. A lotion is applied to the skin to prevent direct contact with the laser. Non-invasive fat reduction treatments have few side effects, which most often include some mild tenderness, redness, and swelling. Massaging the area twice a day and drinking lots of water can help fat move away from the area faster. Many patients begin to see results starting at six weeks, though it can take up to 12 weeks to see the best results. In clinical studies, patients experienced a 24% reduction in fat after 12 weeks.
