Maybe you’ve never heard of SmartLipo™, but your curiosity has been sparked simply by the name itself. Or maybe you’re a little familiar with it, but you don’t know exactly what the treatment entails. SmartLipo™ was the first FDA-approved laser liposuction procedure on the market. Like traditional liposuction, the purpose of this procedure is to remove fat, but there are so many more benefits to it than that. Read on to understand what SmartLipo™ in the Chicago area is all about!
A Truly Innovative Form of Liposuction
SmartLipo™, like other forms of liposuction, is a cosmetic procedure that targets localized areas of fat and destroys them – for example, the chin or the thighs – leading to a slim and trim silhouette. You are probably wondering how SmartLipo™ differs from traditional liposuction. Although it is a form of lipolysis (also known as liposuction), its procedure is quite different from that of traditional liposuction. Unlike traditional liposuction, SmartLipo™ relies on a small laser to eliminate areas of fat.
Using a High-Powered Laser to “Melt” Fat Away
A cannula with a laser fiber is inserted into a tiny opening made in the area(s) of operation. Moving the laser back and forth, the fat is liquefied and either sucked away or absorbed by the body. These laser beams allow for less downtime and fewer side effects. Even better, the laser used during the procedure also stimulates collagen production. Collagen helps to tighten, tone, and firm the skin, reducing cellulite and giving the body a more youthful appearance.
The Effects are Long-Lasting
Not only are the results of SmartLipo™ immediately visible following the procedure, but they continue to improve for months afterwards. Additionally, the results are long-term and long-lasting. Because adult bodies do not manufacture new fat cells, if a patient who has experienced SmartLipo™ gains some weight, the current fat cells just expand so that the weight is distributed evenly around the body.
