Laser Skin Tightening Procedures
The Smart Lipo Laser uses a YAG laser to tighten the skin as well as increase collagen production in the area treated. It has been shown to have many benefits including skin tightening, quicker recovery, less bruising, increase collagen growth, and cellulite reduction.
After my procedure I went to the hotel and rested 1/2 hour. I didn’t take the anti-anxiety med, so I wasn’t tired. Went to eat, to the shark reef, took some fluid draining time (the fluid Trevor puts in has to drain out) and walked “The Strip” until super late. No down time. I did not want general anesthesia as it has many risks and extends healing time. I had three areas of lipo and SmartLipo with so little pain that I was surprised when it was over! I was awake, alert and talked Trevor’s ear off!The laser shows optimal results when done in conjunction with liposuction. The only time we would use the laser without liposuction is when there is not an issue with fat in the areas treated.
What to expect?:
* Liposuction will be completed in the areas treated
* Once fat is removed the undersurface of the skin is exposed
* The laser will be passed under the skin (most people feel nothing during this process)
* The area will be heated by the laser to promote skin tightening and collagen growth
* Once the laser process is complete, you will be cleaned your garment will be applied
The results of the laser are not obvious immediately. Since the skin is loose immediately after the procedure you will not see the benefit until after healing. Because the fat was removed and the skin is essentially detached from the under layer, the skin may be very loose after the procedure. The results of the laser are optimal after about 6 months.
$500 per area when done on the same area with liposuction.
$1000 per area for SmartLipo laser treatment only.
