The alarm’s persistent beeping interrupts your dream. It’s dark, even the sun is still in bed. The sheets are warm and inviting but you climb out nonetheless and put on your workout clothes. This is your routine. You exercise faithfully. You eat a healthy diet. Yet, there are those stubborn spots of fat that just refuse to go away no matter how diligent your fitness efforts.  What’s the use?  You wonder if they will ever surrender to your efforts to eliminate them. Don’t throw in the towel! Instead, contact Weight Loss & Vitality Clinic. They use SmartLipo™ to remove that ultra-stubborn fat from those problem areas. SmartLipo is not a weight loss treatment. It is similar to traditional liposuction in that it targets specific areas of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Unlike traditional liposuction, SmartLipo is minimally invasive. It uses a precise beam of powerful laser light energy to melt subcutaneous fat cells and tighten skin. No general anesthesia or sedation is required, only local anesthesia, which hastens recovery time. Being a minimally invasive treatment is advantageous as there are fewer risks and almost no downtime. In most cases, you will be able to return to work 1 to 2 days after treatment. Another advantage of SmartLipo is that there are no stitches or scars. Due to its minimally invasive nature, there is less bruising and swelling than with traditional liposuction and the results are excellent. You can use SmartLipo to remove those stubborn pockets of fat from your face, neck, jaw line, abdomen, arms, inner and outer thighs, and male breasts. Say goodbye to bra bulge, sagging jowls, a double chin, or belly pouch, and hello to a natural looking contoured body. SmartLipo permanently removes fat cells, tightens the skin, and stimulates collagen. Results are immediate and permanent.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING TREATMENT: SmartLipo is designed exclusively to perform laser-assisted lipolysis or laser liposuction. During the 90 to 120 minute in-office procedure, the surgeon will mark the area to be treated, dividing it into a grid pattern. Local anesthesia will be used to numb the area. The surgeon will then insert a very thin canula (tube) which contains the laser fiber through a tiny incision in the skin. The laser fiber delivers precisely controlled thermal energy under the skin, directly to the fat cells. The heat disrupts the fatty tissue, melting it. Simultaneously, the laser light energy causes the tissue around the area to tighten through coagulation, contributing to a smoother overall shape – no loose or sagging skin! The melted fat is removal using gentle suction. For most patients, results are achieved in just one SmartLipo treatment. The results are immediately visible and continue to improve over three to six months. The best candidates for SmartLipo are individuals who are not significantly overweight, but have stubborn fat deposits such as love handles, flabby upper arms (bat wings), excess neck or facial fat (double chin), or fat on the torso/abdomen. SmartLipo is safe. It was the first laser introduced exclusively for treatment of fat deposits and has been extensively studied, used, and validated. SmartLipo has been shown to involve less pain, less bruising and swelling, and to provide a faster recovery time than traditional liposuction – with dramatic results. Enjoy a more youthful appearance. Eliminate those stubborn problem areas. Enjoy a new beautiful you. One in-office treatment, very minimal downtime, less pain, and great, natural looking, permanent results. Maybe, just once, you can sleep until after sunrise.
