Smartlipo MPX provides treatment for fat removal and skin tightening.
How does it work?
This laser assisted lipolysis procedure is performed using a one millimeter cannula (or small tube) inserted into the skin. The laser fiber inside the cannula delivers energy directly to fat cells using 2 different wavelengths, causing them to rupture and drain away as liquid. The dual wavelengths also allow for more effective tightening of your skin.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Smartlipo MPX is ideal for areas of skin laxity, such as the neck and arms or for removal of fat from the abdomen, love handles, saddles bags or inner and outer thighs.
What are the advantages of Smartlipo MPX over conventional liposuction procedures?
Both treatments effectively remove fat, but conventional liposuction can leave behind unsightly pockets of skin. The Smartlipo MPX wavelengths have been shown to increase collagen and reorganize collagen fibers to tighten and improve the quality of the skin.
Is there a recovery period?
Smartlipo MPX is a minimally invasive procedure which usually requires only local anesthesia. Some light trauma can occur, but you should be able to return to work in a couple of days and subsequently resume exercise after approximately 2 weeks.
Am I a candidate?
This procedure is designed for removing unwanted fat and tightening the skin. The ideal candidate is in good health with a normal average body weight.
