I have the Smart Lipo Triplex laser liposuction machine that I use for almost all of my liposuction cases. I used traditional tumescent lipo for years and my only complaint was my lack of ability to get good skin tightening particularly on the back of the arm, the inner thighs, or tummies on the female patients who had some stretch marks from having babies. Skin tightening on the 40 and 50 something patients can also be a challenge. SmartLipo offers several advantages over standard lipo but skin tightening is a main one. But why?
Smart Lipo, particularly the triplex, uses a blending of two laser beams to create heat just under the skin surface. It has a 3rd laser light that targets and melts your fat cells and this process creates heat too. All of this heat, when properly applied and when taken to the proper levels, serves to heat up the deep surface of your skin, the deep dermis, and this is what causes skin tightening. It basically helps to shrink wrap your skin. It is great for the neck, the back of your arms, the inner thigh area, and lower tummies.
Now, it’s not magic though. It will not tighten up skin that hangs or is covered with stretchmarks and it doesn’t work as well in smokers.
