SmartLipo has some very distinct advantages over conventional liposuction when treating small areas of fat
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) April 24, 2007
You've read about it in People Magazine and USA Today, you've watched it on Good Morning America, and now it is finally available in Pittsburgh and only at The Skin Center Medical Spa. SmartLipo™ is the sought-after, minimally-invasive body contouring treatment that is generating national media attention by melting away fat and tightening skin in about an hour, with local anesthesia and little downtime. And The Skin Center Medical Spa, with locations in Pennsylvania and Ohio, is the only medical practice offering this revolutionary body sculpting treatment in the Pittsburgh area.
SmartLipo™, or laser-assisted lipolysis, is a minimally invasive medi-spa treatment that utilizes a laser to quickly melt stubborn areas of fat and tighten skin on the face, neck, arms, back, abdominal area, hips, thighs and knees. This groundbreaking technology liquefies fat so it can be easily drained or be absorbed by the body's lymphatic system where it is then flushed naturally from the body. An added benefit of SmartLipo™ is its skin tightening capability, which further enhances the results especially for 40+ men and women. Recently FDA-approved, SmartLipo™ is a physician-performed treatment that is performed with a local anesthetic in about an hour.
"SmartLipo has some very distinct advantages over conventional liposuction when treating small areas of fat," said Dominic A. Brandy M.D., board-certified cosmetic surgeon. "The treatment is performed with local anesthetic and the laser probe is so small that sutures are not even necessary. Most people are back to their regular routines, with slight modifications, in a day or two. With SmartLipo the skin is tightened by the laser, resulting in a much better aesthetic improvement."
When compared to conventional liposuction, SmartLipo™ results in less bleeding, less bruising, less swelling and less discomfort. The incisions are so small that sutures are not even necessary. In addition, traditional liposuction requires general anesthesia or IV sedation. SmartLipo™ is performed under local anesthesia and liquefies the fat, which promotes skin tightening through thermal heating and tissue coagulation allowing men and women with loose skin - who previously were not ideal candidates for conventional liposuction - to achieve amazing results.
The Skin Center Medical Spa specializes in non-invasive and minimally invasive body contouring procedures, including VelaSmooth™ for the treatment of cellulite and Mesotherapy for body sculpting and skin toning.
In addition to minimally-invasive medical treatments, The Skin Center Medical Spa specializes in a number of surgical body sculpting procedures including liposuction, abdominal tucks, breast augmentation, nose contouring, chin augmentation, upper and lower eyelid surgery and the QuickLift™ procedure.
