How to Achieve Your Dream Body with Smartlipo

August 4, 2017

We all dream of a whittled waist, a chiseled jaw, tone arms and legs, and no love handles! Smartlipo at Radiant Touch Laser Center can help those dreams become your reality. Smartlipo is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted lipolysis procedure that targets areas resistant to diet and exercise, such as your abdomen, arms, buttocks, thighs and neck.

How it Works:

During the procedure, a local anesthesia is used to numb only the area being treated. The Smartlipo laser fiber is inserted through a very small tube and the laser energy ruptures fat cells. Three wavelengths provide targeted treatments to disrupt fat, coagulate blood vessels and stimulate collagen, which can help tighten skin and improve its elasticity. The liquefied fat is then suctioned out, or in some cases absorbed by the body. Because Smartlipo can help to tighten the skin through coagulation, dimpling and sagging skin are generally not an issue. In fact, the stimulation of new collagen growth, that occurs during the procedure, can also help alleviate unwanted cellulite. Wearing a compression garment for a short time post procedure can help the skin adjust to the new shape.

What to Expect:

Smartlipo is performed under local anesthesia, this allows for an in-office procedure that usually lasts 1 to 2 hours. Treatment time depends on the number of areas and the size of the areas treated. During the procedure you will be awake and should not feel any pain, rather a sensation comparable to tugging or pressure on the area being treated. After the procedure, rest and relaxation is recommended. Typically patients are able to resume normal activity with in a day or two. Smartlipo results are usually visible immediately and continue to improve in the months following the procedure.
