Liposuction has been recognized as a useful treatment to dramatically sculpt body lines and eliminate unsightly subcutaneous fat. Traditional liposuction uses mechanical suction to break up fat cells and suction them out of the body. This can result in pain, swelling, and bruising, as blood vessels and nerves can be caught up in the suction.
SmartLipo laser lipolysis is the first FDA approved laser lipolysis device. Rather than rely upon mechanical suction, the SmartLipo uses laser energy to break up fat cells, a process known as lipolysis. This often results in much less trauma to the body than traditional liposuction.
As a result of this new technology, many people are finding that recovery for laser body sculpting is quicker than traditional liposuction and can return to work or other duties within a day or two.
In addition to destorying fat cells, the laser in SmartLipo can tighten the skin resulting in an improvement not only in the fat under the skin, but an overall appearance in the skin itself due to the tissue tightening.
The factors of SmartLipo which include, quick revoery time, generally minimal bruising and swelling, and the benefit of tissue tightening, are making it the preferred choice for people who would otherwise turn to liposuction.
