In this age of celebrity culture and digitally adjusted pictures in magazines, the quest for an almost perfect body is one which many women are following. However, real life has a different idea for our bodies. Age, stress, illness and pregnancy can cause significant weight gain and whilst exercise can eradicate a lot of weight, there will still be stubborn areas of fat that won’t shift, no matter what you try. This can lead to disillusionment and frustration for lots of women. Luckily, there is a solution. Smart lipo, also known as laser liposuction, is a treatment aimed at getting rid of small areas of fat. Unlike surgical liposuction, this is a non-invasive procedure.
This is not a treatment for significant weight loss, but Smart lipo is very successful in treating smaller areas which are resistant to diet and exercise and can be hard to tone. For example, the face, neck, chin, cheeks, upper arms and knees.
A fibre optic laser is passed through tiny holes in the skin. A laser beam is then used to liquefy the fat cells and this liquid is then removed through low level suction using a cannula. For particularly small areas it won’t always be necessary to remove the fat, but instead it can be left for the body to absorb naturally.
There are many benefits, provided that you are targeting an appropriate area.
- Much more precise treatment
- Doesn’t affect the surrounding tissue
- Much less invasive so faster recovery time
- Far less swelling and bruising
- This treatment is known to promote skin tightening because it stimulates the production of collagen; which makes the skin appear plumper
- This is a permanent fat cell removal
- No scarring
- Immediate results which improve over time.
This procedure is a safe, easy one to undergo and it will result in a smoother, flatter, more contoured figure
