SmartLipo is a form of liposuction that is used to remove body fat from the body. The SmartLipo procedure is used mainly for aesthetic purposes for individuals who want to get rid of unwanted fat on specific areas of their body.
The use of SmartLipo laser liposuction is employed where there are pockets of fat that prove difficult to remove using dieting or exercise. The fat is dislodged from within the body and then drained using cannulas.
The ultimate question among many curious individuals about SmartLipo is does it actually work? So below we take a closer look at SmartLipo laser liposuction and what the process entails.
The difference between SmartLipo and the dry liposuction is that SmartLipo uses laser technology to melt fat in the targeted place. Once the fat has been liquefied, it is then removed from the body using thin cannulas.
Another difference between SmartLipo and dry liposuction is that SmartLipo is not as invasive as the other procedure. In dry liposuction, the fat is broken down mechanically. The manner SmartLipo is designed makes it possible to continue with day to day activities soon after undergoing the procedure. The use of this technology also reduces the possibility of infections since the most a person is likely to suffer after going through the procedure is mild bruising.
The Laser Science Behind SmartLipo
SmartLipo laser technology employs three beams which operate at different wavelengths, 1064, 1340 and 1440 nm. The first beam (1064nm) ensures that the procedure leads to minimal bleeding and bruising by causing coagulation in the blood vessels. The 1320nm goes into the water molecules in the fat cells and heats the fat molecules. The 1440nm beam is purposed to break down the fat cells mechanically and through heat so that they can then be drained using a cannula.
When the laser beam falls on the skin, the skin responds with production of elastin, the substance that tightens skin. The production of elastin tightens the skin ensuring that the skin over the areas where fat has been reduced does not remain loose after the procedure.
Does SmartLipo Work?
The reason why people undergo the procedure is to ensure that they get rid of excess fat from the body and get firm skin. Thus, the procedure is meant to get rid of skin imperfections such as cellulite among others. The procedure does give customers the desired results in most instances. Many of the reviews show that the procedure lives up to the expectations of most customers.
Where there have been negative reviews, they are more about the surgeon who performed the procedure than the procedure itself. In a nutshell, SmartLipo provides a service that is at least equal to dry liposuction.
However, the procedure is much better due to the safeguards it brings with it. It works best when it is employed to remove excess fat from the abdomen, neck, buttocks, hips, buttocks and thighs. Other areas where it can be used include upper arms the face and breasts.
Over and above succeeding in removing fat from the body, the SmartLipo procedure also minimizes the possibility of side effects. Reduced side effects is owing to the fact that it reduces bleeding through coagulation of vessels and tightening of the skin. Over and above the possible health complications that would accompany related side effects, there is the attendant hospital bill for which most insurance companies don’t cover.Read More
