Treatments can be provided in combination with our vein procedures or separately, giving out patients even more options in achieving their aesthetic goals.
Smartlipo TriPlex Laser Liposuction
Liposuction has long been considered the top choice in body contouring, but innovative technology has taken this procedure to the next level. By combining laser energy with standard liposuction procedures, we can effectively remove isolated pockets of fat with less trauma to the body and shorter recovery times. Smartlipo offers excellent body contouring results not seen with traditional liposuction techniques.
Laser liposuction can be used on any of the following treatment areas:
- Neck, chin and jawline
- Upper arms and back
- Abdomen and waistline
- Hips and thighs
- Lower back
- Breasts (for male patients)
Smartlipo is recommended for patients who have achieved a healthy weight but have isolated pockets of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise. The device uses a very narrow cannula inserted directly into the fat deposit to deliver laser energy directly to the area. The laser liquefies the fat cells, making them easier to remove from the body. The procedure may be performed in under two hours for most patients, using local anesthesia. Most patients are able to return to regular activities within a day or two.
Cellulaze Cellulite Reduction
Cellulite is a stubborn problem that plagues many women during and after the childbearing years. While many associate the appearance of cellulite with weight gain, the dimpled appearance is actually a result of structural changes beneath the surface of the skin. Cellulaze is the first treatment that addresses these structural issues at their source, smoothing away the cottage cheese look of cellulite. Cellulaze is a minimally-invasive procedure that produces excellent results in just one treatment with minimal discomfort and downtime.
Cellulaze delivers laser energy beneath the surface of the skin via a very fine cannula. The laser energy releases the fibrous bands of connective tissue that tighten and cause the skin dimpling. In addition, laser energy liquefies some of the fat cells below the skin’s surface, creating a smoother appearance. Laser energy stimulates the body’s own collagen production as well, leading to long-lasting results.
Cellulaze is performed in our office on an outpatient basis, using local anesthesia. Patients report little discomfort during and after the procedure and most are able to return to regular activities after just a couple of days. Results can be seen right away and will continue to improve in the months following the procedure. Only one treatment session is typically needed to achieve desired results.
