Smartlipo TriPlex™ Laser Liposuction

Even if you eat well and exercise regularly, it can be nearly impossible to remove stubborn fat from problem areas. Minimally invasive body fat contouring treatments may have given you minimal results or no results. For those looking for significant results in one office treatment, SmartLipo Triplex™ may be your answer. This is an in-office liposuction procedure performed with local anesthesia. Removing unwanted fat on the neck, arms, abdomen, and legs is fast and easy with SmartLipo Triplex™ laser treatments. Laser liposuction is recommended for healthy individuals who are not significantly overweight. Ideal patients have a BMI  30 and have been unable to meet their aesthetic goals with weight loss methods.

How Does Laser Liposuction Work?

Smartlipo Body Sculpting laser lipolysis was approved by the FDA in 2006. It uses cutting-edge laser technology to liquefy fatty deposits. The laser simultaneously stimulates collagen production which leads to reduced skin laxity. The combination of wavelengths available with the Triplex™ produces better results with less pain and less downtime. As a result, you get skin tightening as well as fat reduction. This allows you to achieve smoother and firmer outcomes. The Triplex comes equipped with Thermaguide™ temperature monitoring capabilities. This technology helps prevent burns and other complications associated with conventional laser lipolysis technology.

How is Smartlipo Different?

Compared to traditional liposuction, SmartLipo Triplex™ allows the use of three laser wavelengths (1064nm, 1320nm and 1440nm). These wavelengths can be used independently or blended using the MultiPlex™ technology. The 1440nm wavelength alone has a 40x greater absorption rate in fat than other diode lasers (924nm and 980nm). SmartLipo Triplex™ laser body contouring uses less invasive methods to deliver more precise and long-lasting results. After undergoing traditional surgical liposuction, patients are more likely to need future surgeries to remove excess skin compared to SmartLipo. The triple wavelengths are ideal for body shaping, toning, and tightening the skin resulting in reduced treatment and recovery time.

What to Expect During Laser Body Sculpting

SmartLipo Triplex™ laser liposuction uses local anesthesia to reduce pain and discomfort during the procedure. Since laser body sculpting is minimally invasive, patients can recover at home after the procedure. Most people can go back to work within a few days and return to exercising in about two weeks. Results can be seen within one week with continued improvement over the next three to six months. There is minimal risk of complications.
