Laser fat reduction (laser liposuction) is not so much about removing fat but stimulating skin to tighten after removing the underlying fat. Smartlipo Laser Body Sculpting is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted lipolysis procedure that targets trouble spots like the abdomen, thighs and neck, and permanently eliminates fat.

Different than traditional liposuction, laser liposuction is an option that delivers a wave of laser light to stimulate collagen production to tighten the skin over subsquent months. This technology can help target areas of fat that may be resistant to diet and exercise.
Laser lipolysis is ideal for the neck, jawline, arms, back, “love handles,” post-pregnancy skin laxity, saddlebags, knees, and enlarged male breasts. The laser lipolysis procedure is minimally invasive procedure and usually requires only local anesthesia. Some light bruising can occur, but you’ll be able to return to normal activities within a day or two.
