What to expect
The in-office treatment is performed under local anesthesia for your comfort. Most treatments take 1.5-2 hours, depending on the size and number of treatment areas. Three wavelengths provide targeted treatments to disrupt fat, coagulate blood vessels and stimulate collagen.
SmartLipo tightens the skin through coagulation, so you don’t have to worry about any dimpling or sagging skin. In treatment areas, skin elasticity frequently improves by up to 50%.
With minimal discomfort, SmartLipo is less painful, with less bruising and swelling, and a faster recovery time, than traditional liposuction. After treatment, you may experience mild swelling, light bruising, or body aches, similar to a physical workout. Most of our patients return to normal activities within a day or two.
For most patients, results are achieved in just one SmartLipo treatment. Expect to see visible results within a week, with continued improvement over the next 3 to 6 months. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. Fat reduction from SmartLipo is permanent. Maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise is important for long-lasting results.
