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.
