Smartlipo ruptures the fat cell membranes into a liquefied state, gently suctions out the liquefied fat, and tightens skin plus stimulates collagen production through coagulation of blood vessels.*
Smartlipo Laser Body Sculpting utilizes the Smartlipo MPX workstation to direct laser energy to fat cells.
The Smartlipo MPX laser is manufactured by Cynosure and received FDA approval for laser lypolysis in November 2006. Cynosure’s Smartlipo MPX has a high power of 46 watts (first generation was 6 watts) and is the only laser brand with internal temperature monitoring (Thermaguide) to maximize treatment results and safely.
Cynosure’s Smartlipo MPX is the only lipo laser brand on the market to offer the benefit of two different laser wavelengths during a single procedure. The 1064nm laser wavelength liquefies the fat cells and helps coagulate small capillaries. The 1320nm laser wavelength creates heat to facilitate skin tightening. These wavelengths provide targeted treatments to disrupt fat; coagulate blood vessels and stimulate collagen which helps to tighten skin and improve elasticity by 57% 1 *
Smartlipo MPX Laser Body Sculpting Benefits
- Fat cell reduction and removal*
- Approximately 30% skin shrinkage vs. traditional liposuction alone*
- The ability to improve the appearance of cellulite*
- Most procedures can be done in awake patients under just local anesthesia
- Typically less bruising
- Usually less pain
- Often there is a quicker return to normal activities
Smartlipo is ideal for patients who are healthy and not significantly over weight. Treating one or two body areas under local anesthesia is usually enough for one day. If multiple body areas require treatment and you want just one recovery, then general anesthesia in a surgicenter is an option.
