Achieve a natural-looking slimmer appearance with little to no downtime with our minimally invasive laser body contouring treatments.
Some stubborn pockets of fat just won’t budge even with diet and exercise. It can be frustrating to not be able to achieve your ideal body shape, even with your best efforts. Using our revolutionary body contouring technology, you can finally target those problem areas, including love handles, inner or outer thighs, bra bulges, double chins, and more.
Unlike traditional liposuction, laser lipolysis is safer and results in less pain, bruising and swelling after treatment.
Designed exclusively to perform what’s known as laser liposuction. Our innovative technology inserts a thin tube containing the Smartlipo laser fibre into targeted fatty areas through a small incision. The unwanted pockets of fat are liquified and gently suctioned out. At the same time, heat is applied to the area, which helps the skin contract. This results in a smoother, firmer, more contoured appearance.
Since anaesthetic fluid is delivered into the area via a thin tube, patients will be comfortable throughout their treatment. The specialised laser also constantly measures the temperature of the skin, ensuring the skin and surrounding tissue is always protected. If temperatures get too high, the laser will automatically switch off.
The length of the procedure will depend on the area that’s treated as well as the size of the area. The average laser lipolysis session lasts anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours.
In most cases, only one treatment is usually required to achieve the desired outcome. However, patients will need to wait at least a week to start seeing a difference. Results develop gradually over the course of 6 months.
The best candidates for Smartlipo are women and men who are not significantly overweight but have accumulated unwanted fat deposits. This is generally in areas such as the flanks, upper arms, neck, face and lower torso. Laser lipolysis is not a weight-loss treatment and patients should be prepared to reach a healthy weight prior to their procedure. A consultation will still be required so that your lifestyle and medical history can first be reviewed. Certain medical conditions could prevent you from being a viable candidate. Pregnant patients also can’t be treated.
These minimally invasive body contouring sessions are widely used. Extensive research has gone into the development of the lipolysis system, ensuring patients are safe and achieve their desired outcome without major risks. Studies have shown Smartlipo to involve less pain, less bruising and swelling. They also provide a faster recovery time than traditional liposuction procedures.
Smartlipo is minimally invasive and performed under local anaesthesia, which means very little downtime is required. Some bruising may occur post-treatment but patients are typically able to return to normal activities within a day or two. Patients are encouraged to stay hydrated while they heal and to wear the required compression garments. These garments facilitate healing by reducing swelling. Light exercise is also recommended a few days after treatment as this will help produce better results a lot faster. Since the incisions are very small, once they heal, they will fade and become barely visible.
In the weeks leading up to your treatment, it’s important to stay hydrated and eat healthy. This includes cutting down on alcohol and sugary drinks. It’s also important to keep exercising – a fit and healthy body recovers quicker and produces better results. Your provider will also provide you with some additional preparation instructions during your consultation.
Once fat is physically eliminated from the body, it’s very difficult for it to return. However, without leading a healthy lifestyle, unwanted fat can return – even if it’s in different areas. Major life events such as pregnancy can also alter the results of your treatment. This is something to keep in mind when planning your laser lipolysis session.
Yes, the heat from the laser will contract the skin, resulting in a firmer appearance. Skin sagging is a common concern amongst those considering liposuction. Just another reason why laser liposuction has become such a popular choice. What’s more, if you struggle with cellulite, this treatment can reduce the appearance of orange peel. It won’t remove cellulite completely but it can make a noticeable difference. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will also enhance these positive effects of minimally invasive body contouring sessions.
