Smartlipo: The First FDA-Cleared Laser Lipo System
Smartlipo was the first FDA-cleared Laser Lipo System in the United States. A minimally-invasive procedure, offered by Dr. Mir Varquez for fat reduction at Belle D’ Mir Med-Spa in Cullman, Alabama.
Here are some popular questions and answers about the treatment:
What Is Smartlipo?
A medical device designed exclusively to perform laser-assisted lipolysis, commonly referred to as Laser Lipo. Dr. Varquez inserts a very thin tube containing the Smartlipo laser fiber in the targeted fatty areas through a small incision.
The laser fiber then delivers thermal energy directly to the fat cells and disrupts the fatty tissue for easy removal. The laser melts the fat and the fat is then removed with gentle suction. At the same time, tissue around the area tightens through coagulation, contributing to a smoother overall shape.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
For most patients, results are achieved in just one Smartlipo treatment. Results often occur within a week, with continued improvement over three to six months. Smartlipo permanently destroys fat cells in the treated area. However, it’s important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to enjoy long-lasting results.
Is Smartlipo Right For Me?
Both men and women make great candidates for Smartlipo. However, the best candidates are not significantly overweight but have instead accumulated fat deposits on their hips, neck, face, lower torso, or upper arms. To determine if you are a candidate, schedule a consultation with our team at Belle D’ Mir Med-Spa in Cullman, Alabama.
How Long Is The Procedure?
The procedure typically takes somewhere between 90 and 120 minutes depending and varying on the patient. The more areas treated, and the size of those areas, will help make a final determination.
Does The Treatment Require a Hospital Stay?
Absolutely not. Smartlipo is an in-office, minimally-invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia. For our patients, this means you won’t need to be unconscious during the procedure and you’ll be able to go home the same day. As far as recovery time goes, you might experience slight bruising, but you’ll be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities in 24 to 48 hours.
Will There Be Scarring?
A particularly common question. The incision site for Laser Lipo is relatively small. Any scars that remain will be difficult, if not impossible, to see. During your consultation, our experienced physician will be able to evaluate your skin type and determine how visible your post-procedure scars may be.
