Learn About the Alternative to Liposuction – Smart Lipo in Calabasas
Smart Lipo is an improved alternative to liposuction. It melts away stubborn fat on the thighs, abdomen, chin and most all other problem areas of the body. Utilizing laser technology, Smart Lipo liquefies fat pockets, eliminating the issue of lumpy, sagging skin that may occur in traditional liposuction treatments. The high-tech lasers promote quicker healing times, lessen bruising, and tighten the skin. The lasers are powerful enough to penetrate the skin but same enough to not damage the surrounding nerve tissue.
Get Smart Lipo Treatments from a certified cosmetic dermatologist in Calabasas
If you’re seeking Smart Lipo in Calabasas you should seek the assistance of a certified dermatologist. Certified Calabasas dermatologists can be found at the Calabasas Dermatology Center. When performing the operation, our board-certified dermatologist will first apply an anesthetic to the marked area. The doctor will then insert a cannula into a very small incision. A cannula is a tiny tube tool. Using the tool, the doctor injects tumescent in the incision with anesthesia to numb the target area.
A fiber optic laser cannula is then used to melt the fat. The laser on the cannula allows the doctor to see the tool’s exact location, enabling the doctor to work with greater precision. The laser breaks down the fat cells into a liquid state. The fat cells are then removed with a small suctioning cannula. After the procedure is complete, the patient will be sent home in compression bandages to speed healing, tighten skin, reduce excess liquid, and prevent blood clots. Patients are then released to someone that can transport them home.
Why a Smart Lipo procedure is a preferred treatment over traditional liposuctions
Because of its less invasive nature and improved healing times, those who may have been turned down for liposuction may qualify for Smart Lipo. The procedure also contours fat that may have been left lumpy or loose from traditional liposuction procedures. Smart Lipo technology was approved by the FDA in 2006.
