Advanced Technology for Laser Lipo
Since its FDA approval in 2006, Smartlipo laser lipolysis has quickly become the most requested cosmetic procedure available. With the introduction of Smartlipo Triplex™, it has become more technologically advanced than ever before.*
Genesis Med Spa is proud to offer this advanced method of body contouring. This laser body sculpting procedure simultaneously slims and tightens the body.*
How does the procedure work?
A very small cannula (tube) approximately 1.0 mm to 2.0 mm in diameter containing a laser fiber is inserted into the skin. The cannula is moved back and forth delivering the laser’s energy directly to the fat cells, causing them to rupture and easily drain away. The laser energy also interacts with the dermis, resulting in collagen shrinkage.*
Due to the cannula’s small size, Smartlipo is a minimally invasive procedure and can be performed under local anesthesia. The laser causes small blood vessels to coagulate immediately on contact, resulting in less bleeding, swelling and bruising – and a quicker recovery time than conventional liposuction.*
What areas can be treated?
Smartlipo can be performed on multiple areas of the body, including:
• Abdomen (upper, lower, love handles, hips)
Am I a good candidate for Smartlipo?
The best candidates for the Smartlipo procedure are men and women who are not significantly overweight and who have only small areas of troublesome, localized fat deposits. Ideal candidates are in good health, close to normal body weight and have realistic expectations for the results. If you have areas of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise, then this procedure is for you!*
How many treatments are required?
For most patients, results are achieved in just one Smartlipo treatment. Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over three to six months.*
What is the recovery time?
Since Smartlipo is performed under local anesthesia, there is less downtime required than with traditional liposuction. After the procedure is complete, minimal pain and discomfort may be present. However, these symptoms can be alleviated by regular pain medication and compression garments that will help reduce swelling. Patients can usually return to work in a few days, but should avoid strenuous activity and exercise for at least two weeks.*
Does this procedure have FDA Clearance?
The Smartlipo has been cleared by the FDA for laser-assisted Lipolysis. It is also cleared for incision, vaporization, ablation and coagulation of soft tissue.*
