Laser Lipo Q&A
What is laser lipo?
Laser lipo, or Smartlipo®, is an innovative cosmetic body contouring treatment that uses a special laser to destroy fat cells while tightening loose skin.
Smartlipo is the first and only cosmetic treatment that uses a high-powered laser to permanently reduce fat in your problem areas.
How does laser lipo work?
Unlike traditional liposuction, laser lipo doesn’t suction fat out of your body. Instead, it uses lipolysis to liquefy unwanted fat, which then drains out of your body through very small incisions.
Dr. Willis inserts a cannula (a thin tube) with laser fibers into the area you want to be treated. The cannula delivers targeted laser energy directly into your fat to gently heat up and liquefy your fat cells.
While your fat cells begin to liquefy, the laser energy stimulates your body’s natural collagen production to tighten and lift your loose skin.
Your liquefied fat slowly drains out of your body through small incisions, leaving behind little to no scarring.
What are the benefits of laser lipo?
If you’re relatively fit but unhappy with unwanted fat around your abdomen, thighs, hips, knees, arms, neck, or back, laser lipo offers many benefits over traditional liposuction. These benefits include:
- Minimally invasive
- No stitches
- Short recovery time
- Local anesthesia
- Less pain
- Promotes skin tightening
- FDA approved
What makes laser lipo unique is that it permanently gets rid of unwanted fat cells to help you look and feel your best.
How many laser lipo treatments will I need?
Most patients only need one laser lipo treatment at New England Laser Lipo to achieve the results they want. Procedures last about 45 minutes to two hours, depending on the areas treated.
Laser lipo provides long-lasting results. When you gain weight, your fat cells expand, but you don’t grow new ones. Should you gain weight, your new fat will likely deposit in a different area than the areas treated with laser lipo.
Laser lipo is a safe, effective treatment that can permanently reduce your unwanted fat cells. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Willis, call New England Laser Lipo or schedule an appointment online today.
