SMARTLipo skin tightening 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 it 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 treatment is required. The session may last from 45 minutes to one hour for each area treated. Results are seen immediately with continued improvement over several weeks.
SMARTLipo can be performed alone or in conjunction with other types of cosmetic surgery procedures such as:
In Pittsburgh, laser liposuction is performed in our state-licensed, nationally-accredited (AAAHC) surgery center located in Mt. Lebanon, PA. In Columbus, Ohio, SmartLipo is performed in our nationally-accredited (AAAHC) surgery center located in Gahanna.
SMARTLipo Laser Liposuction Post-Treatment Care
After the laser lipo treatment you may experience mild swelling and bruising. We recommend 1-2 days without vigorous activity but most patients are able to return to work immediately depending on their occupation. A compression garment can be worn if SMARTLipo is used for fat removal on larger areas of the body.
