Facial laser liposuction with SmartLipo™ is performed as a simple outpatient treatment. A paperclip-thin probe, approximately 1-2mm in diameter containing a laser fiber, is inserted beneath the skin. The probe is moved back and forth delivering the laser''s energy to the fat cells, causing the fat cells to rupture and liquefy. The liquefied fat is easily drained or absorbed through the body''s lymphatic system where it''s flushed naturally from the body.
For most people, typically only one facial laser liposuction treatment is required. The session may last from 45 minutes to one hour depending on the area treated. Results are seen immediately with continued improvement over several weeks.*

Facial Liposuction Recovery
After facial liposuction, you may experience mild swelling and bruising. We recommend 1-2 days without vigorous activity but most patients are able to return to work the following day, depending on their occupation. A compression garment can be worn if laser liposuction is used for fat removal on larger areas of the body.
