Age, lifestyle, genetics and metabolism all play significant roles in how and where individuals store their excess weight. For many, stubborn fat deposits around the abdomen, chest, thighs, arms, neck and face are the most problematic areas and can be resistant to diet and exercise.
In the last twenty years, there have been significant scientific advances in the field of body contouring including Smartlipo Triplex™. This laser liposuction treatment system is supported by eight years of clinical studies and is one of the most researched lasers systems available.
“THIS TECHNOLOGY ALLOWS FOR A SAFE AND PRECISE WAY TO REMOVE FAT DEPOSITS AND SCULPT THE BODY,” Dr. Jeffries.
How does it work?
The procedure is performed using a small tube about the size of the tip of a pen, which is inserted under the skin. The laser delivers energy directly to the fat cells through the tube, causing them to rupture. The liquefied fat is then gently suctioned out. This unique technology safely delivers the optimal blend of three laser wavelengths for better fat removal and enhanced tissue tightening.
Benefits of Smartlipo Triplex™
- Immediate fat reduction
- Results in one treatment
- Ability to contour and shape
- Local anesthesia available
- Minimal downtime and discomfort
- Smoothes and tightens skin tissue
Is laser liposuction right for you?
Smartlipo Triplex™ laser liposuction is a good option for individuals who wish to sculpt their bodies by getting rid of fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise. Ideal candidates are non-smokers who have maintained a healthy weight for at least six months.
“MOST PATIENTS WILL BE ABLE TO RETURN TO NORMAL ACTIVITES WITHIN A COUPLE DAYS,” Dr. Lomax.
