- CLEAR CLINIC
Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center is the first and only practice in Northern Michigan to offer this exciting dual procedure technology at both our Petoskey and Traverse City offices.
SmartLipo is the first laser-assisted liposuction procedure, approved by the FDA in 2006. Since then it has become one of the most successful liposuction procedures in the cosmetic surgery field. It works best on stubborn fat bulges that won't go away no matter how much you diet or exercise.
With SmartLipo, a 1mm thin laser catheter is inserted into the fatty layer under your skin through a tiny incision. The laser is used to both liquefy fat and tighten the overlying skin. The liquefied fat is then gently suctioned away through the same incisions, leaving a much slimmer contour. Lasering the fat away also results in a much smoother result, avoiding the lumpiness and irregularity common with older liposuction techniques. SmartLipo is also less traumatic, dramatically reducing the risk of bruising and promoting a quicker recovery.
