People looking for liposuction in Atlanta should start by considering SmartLipo laser lipolysis from the physicians at an accredited clinic. SmartLipo Atlanta is a minimally invasive form of laser bodysculpting. This safe and effective in-office procedure uses a heated cannula (the tube used to break up and remove fat deposits) that melts the fat, allowing for easy sculpting and removal. SmartLipo uses very fine instruments that help with precise bodysculpting and cause less trauma to surrounding tissues. A local anesthetic is used for pain rather than general anesthesia. With SmartLipo, the physician uses the cannula to break up fat deposits, and the laser
What Areas Can Be Treated with SmartLipo?
Because of the fine instruments, SmartLipo can work on smaller areas in addition to large areas commonly associated with lipo surgery. SmartLipo helps to remove pockets of fat under the chin & under the arms. It is also used on the tummy, love handles, thighs, buttock, saddle bags, the back and bra line, or just about any area in which patients want to remove unwanted fat. The Results patients can expect near immediate results after their liposuction procedure. But the results tend to get better over a few months. Also, the heating mechanism with SmartLipo helps to tighten sagging skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Once the fat is melted and gone.
Benefits of SmartLipo
Great Results – Fat is literally melted away with SmartLipo
In-Office ProcedureMinimal Bruising and SwellingLess trauma and less downtime than with traditional liposuction.
No General Anesthesia and the associated risks.Greater skin tightening than with
Traditional liposuction does not have the added benefit of heat which can tighten the skin after fat reduction.
Precise targeting of areas of unwanted fat. The small cannula and laser targeting allows for the removal of very targeted fat deposits.Lower cost than traditional liposuction surgery.
SmartLipo does not require general anesthesia, an Anesthesiologist, nor
a surgical center, thus lowering the cost.
I’m excited to talk to you guys today about a breakthrough treatment for the reduction of troublesome unwanted fat. I’m talking about Coolsculpting. Coolsculpting is a completely non-invasive and no downtime treatment that you can conveniently have done at lunch time and then return to work. Coolsculpting works by cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is a term to describe the reduction of fat using cold. It’s a scientifically proven process. The way it works with Coolsculpting is the applicator will reduce the temperature of the fat being treated to around about 4 degrees celsius. that’s the same as your normal refrigerator at home. It keeps the fat at the temperature for about an hour. What this does in turn, is it reduces a process in the cells called apoptosis. Apoptosis is a natural process that results in the reduction of cells naturally without any cell death or without any scarring or tissue damage. So, this is the same process that occurs in a situation where a tad pole loses its tail as it turns into a frog. In that case, nothing dies, nothing falls off, and there’s no scarring in the end. The same happens with Coolsculpting. There’s no scarring, there’s no tissue damage, which is very important. This is why there’s no downtime associated with the treatment. In a way, it’s very much like liposuction in the sense that you get a reduction in the amount of fat that’s present. However, unlike, liposuction, there’s no need for any anesthesia, there’s no incisions, there’s no trauma, there’s no bleeding or bruising, there’s no downtime, and there’s very little need for on-going follow up or after care.
Who’s suitable for Coolsculpting?
According to Coolsculpting Atlanta Slimplasty, not everyone is suitable for Coolsculpting like most treatments. The sort of patient that would be suitable for Coolsculpting is somebody who’s at or near ideal body weight. Somebody who’s already undertaking a healthy lifestyle (they exercise and they have a good diet). So, it’s not a fat or weight reduction treatment. It really is, as the name suggestions, a way of sculpting areas or getting rid of isolated areas of unwanted fat.
Jason Saggers here on looking your best. I wanted to spend a few minutes today to talk about a new technology, Ultherapy. Ultherapy is an ultrasound device that has been cleared by the FDA for actually doing lifting using non-invasive technology. It’s the first and only device in the United States that’s gotten a clearance from the FDA for lifting. You will see some photographs that I’ll post on the blog and also some demonstrations. These are some very good examples of actual lifting and improvement that is achieved by using ultrasound.
Now I want to talk a little bit about how the technology works and contrast it against some of the other technologies that have made some claims about lifting but it not so much for skin tightening.
When we do laser skin resurfacing, what we’re doing is creating little thermal injuries that go through the epidermal layer and into the second layer of the dermis. Depending on the heating it can all the way through which is why we’re very careful. It’s a selective injury and lasers work on the skin’s surface only. They do smoothing, a great job of fine lines, wrinkles, contours, and texture. So that’s where the category of energy delivery is.
Ulthera uses ultrasound energy and those are literally sound waves, high frequency sound waves that are delivered through the skin’s surface. Based on the tip that’s being used (or the transducer on the end), you can lay the ultrasound energy at the bottom most layer, the middle layer, or closer to the skin’s surface for fine lines. There’s a small hand piece that’s applied to the skin’s surface. Typically, patients get very small amounts of anesthesia. The energy delivery, depending on the hand piece, will lay little rows or dots and contour along the lower face, neck, and even brow area. For general contouring, a 4.5 millimeter transducer would be used to get improvement in contour.
So Ultherapy, I think represents a significant technological advance in the area of facial contouring. This is a procedure that’s often offered in the office with no downtime, there’s no injury whatsoever to the skin’s surface when it’s properly performed. It has minimal discomfort and we have a whole protocol for people who are a little sensitive with doing very light skin block so they’ll feel absolutely nothing. The company actually just recommend Ibuprofen. We want to make sure that it’s a totally comfortable procedure. If you’re reading about it and you’ve seen where it’s uncomfortable, well those patients haven’t been offered a blocking alternative which I think doing a small local anesthesia block is so simple and easy. For anybody that’s a little sensitive that’s easy to do. We’re seeing really good results. It’s certainly not a facelift and I don’t think it should be marketed as a replacement for a facelift but for people who are younger in their forties, their late thirties with minimal sun damage, or people who have already had a lift and just need a little tightening, Ultherapy may very well be the best option for them.
