With the increasing pressure of first impressions as we age, today men and women are choosing to explore their options in body contouring and liposuction.
In Greenwood Village, liposuction at Skin Secrets Medical is achieved using the revolutionary SmartLipo and Vaser technology. With over 20 years of experience in the field, we are proud to be featuring these breakthrough procedures.
Vaser Lipo: Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound energy to melt fat before it is removed through a thin tube called a cannula. This technique makes the fat easier to remove and may be especially useful in areas with larger volumes or denser fat.
It also results in a less-aggressive procedure, which may lead to faster recovery times. This method does pose a risk for burns, and as with traditional liposuction, it’s not intended to significantly reduce weight, but to address fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.
Smart Lipo: Smart Lipo is a variation on traditional liposuction that uses laser energy to liquefy fat before it’s removed through a thin tube called a cannula. This technique makes the fat easier to remove, making Smart Lipo a less aggressive procedure that may have a faster recovery timeline. In areas with thin layers of fat, like the face and the neck, the cannula might not be used at all. In this case, the liquefied fat is absorbed and naturally eliminated by the body.
The procedure is not intended to significantly reduce weight, but to address fat that has been resistant to diet and exercise. This procedure may also be referred to as Smartlipo Laser Lipolysis or Laser Lypolysis.
