How did people used to change their bodies? They embraced extreme diets, exercised like crazy, or went under the knife. Well, guess what? Those aren't the only options anymore. Today, it's all about aesthetic treatments like SmartLipo - a fast and easy way to get rid of fat.
What exactly is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is a form of laser body contouring, created to improve cosmetic procedures. Unlike traditional liposuction, SmartLipo doesn't use suction. Instead, laser heat softens the fat so it's easier to remove. What makes SmartLipo popular is its less aggressive technique. Not only is SmartLipo considered less painful, but patients also experience less bruising and swelling. Which means a short recovery time. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?
How does SmartLipo work?
SmartLipo treatment starts with a consultation to identify the areas for treatment. Before the procedure, a local anesthetic numbs the targeted areas. Once numbed, a tiny tube goes inside. The SmartLipo laser fiber inserts through the tube and goes to work liquifying fat and stimulating collagen.
You'll be awake and alert during the entire procedure. Which usually takes less than two hours. Make sure you wear a compression garment after the procedure to prevent pain and discomfort.
Who’s a good candidate for SmartLipo?
Regardless of how much you exercise or diet, shedding unwanted fat isn’t easy. SmartLipo can help slim down those areas, so you feel more confident about your body.
SmartLipo is ideal for people who want to target small areas of fat. For example, the chin, abdomen, thighs, breasts, buttocks, etc. This treatment is less invasive than traditional liposuction. Which makes it a great option for men or women who want a more comfortable cosmetic procedure.
When will you see results?
Results vary from patient to patient. However, you should see a noticeable change a week or two after treatment, and continual improvement over the next three-six months.
Depending on how much fat was targeted, you might feel sore a few days following your SmartLipo treatment. Most people are able to go back to their normal activities in a day or two. If you can, try to schedule your treatment before a long weekend so you have plenty of time to relax.
SmartLipo permanently destroys fat, but that doesn’t mean you can ignore your health after the procedure. In order to enjoy your results forever, it’s important you maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.
