Smart Lipo is becoming one of the most sought-after facial rejuvenation procedures with Dr Crais in Boise. Why? Smart Lipo can melt facial fat and tighten facial skin in a single visit, making the patient look rejuvenated.
Smart Lipo is basically laser-assisted liposuction on the face. The combination breaks down fat cells and tightens the skin. Smart Lipo uses a cannula that is first inserted into the areas to be treated. Then a laser beam is delivered through the skin. The laser beam reaches the fatty layer, rupturing fat cells that are then sucked out through the cannula. Beyond breaking down the fat cells, the laser also stimulates collagen and elastin production, which helps in tightening the skin.
Who are good candidates for Smart Lipo?
During your initial consultation with Dr. Crais, he will assess your overall health condition and evaluate if you are fit to undergo the procedure. A good Smart Lipo candidate is in good overall health, usually within 25 pounds of ideal body weight, and is bothered by the extra fat deposits on the face. Those who wish to regain a more youthful appearance by tightening facial skin, tightening jowls, eliminating excess fat on the face, and defining the jaw line can benefit from the procedure.
What can I expect during a Smart Lipo procedure?
Smart Lipo is performed with the use of local anesthesia to keep the patient as comfortable as possible during the procedure. The entire treatment usually takes from one to three hours.
What are the advantages of Smart Lipo over traditional liposuction?
Smart Lipo is a quick procedure and comes with minimal downtime. Side effects such as bruising and swelling are minimal. The results can also be seen after one treatment.
What happens during my recovery from liposuction?
Recovery from Smart Lipo is far easier than recovery from traditional liposuction. The day following your procedure you can usually return to your normal activities.
