Q and A with SmartLipo Atlanta

Smart Lipo Procedure

SmartLipo Procedure is usually confused with regular Liposuction itself, but the two are completely different. Regular Liposuction can be very time consuming and leave you in a lot of pain. SmartLipo uses a unique laser that targets fat cells and liquifies them to destroy them permanently. Use of a laser allows you to recover quickly and with little to no pain. SmartLipo is a safe, less invasive procedure, and can easily help you get back to the body that you want and deserve.

Traditional Liposuction is safe for areas of the body such as the abdomen, arms, back, thighs, knees, and ankles. SmartLipo can also safely remove excess fat deposits in these same areas. SmartLipo is becoming more and more popular because it leaves the patient with smoother, tighter skin, faster recovery time, and less bruising and pain than experienced with Traditional Liposuction. SmartLipo laser liposuction in Georgia is also a great procedure to receive if you have previously undergone Traditional Liposuction and are unhappy with your results.

Ideal Candidate

An Ideal Candidate includes individuals who have smaller excess fat deposits on their body. SmartLipo uses a laser instead in simply sucking the fat out, so the results will be slightly different from that of traditional liposuction. Everyone interested in SmartLipo should understand that this is not a replacement for major weight loss surgery. Ideal candidates should meet most or all of the criteria listed below:

Fat Freezing Coolsculpting Atlanta Benefits

Coolsculpting has been around for several years. It’s actually a non-invasive, fat freezing procedure. That means that are are no needles, no downtime, in and out in under an hour. It’s amazing how you can target specific fat cells that you don’t want anymore. It takes anywhere between two to four months for those fat cells to eventually flush out of the body but once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. Coolsculpting really is different from other technologies out on the market. Some use heat. Some are invasive and actually go in and remove the fat cells. Coolsculpting (using the cold) goes in, freezes the fat cells, and sets up a natural cell death process. So there’s no needles or surgery. There’s no downtime. Unlike liposuction where they’re going in and manually removing the fat cells, that can leave scarring and it will definitely have downtime with it, as well as unpredictable outcomes. With this, our patients go in, they have the treatment, and within an hour they can be back at the gym, they can be back taking care of the kids, and they can get back to their day to day.

How much does Coolsculpting cost?

I’m going to be honest with you. I’m always a little hesitant to give pricing information. The reason is, every single body is different. One individual might be able to come in and have a single treatment of Coolsculpting done and get the body they want. On the other hand, there might be another individual that may require several sessions on the same area or multiple areas to truly get that transformative event. So a Coolsculpting investment can certainly range, but what I can tell you the Coolsculpting Atlanta site from Slimplasty is that it usually starts at $600 per application. For some people, that might be more than what they want to spend. But the truth is, when you step into a body that you are confident in and you feel proud about, you go out into that world and you’re a better human being. You’re a better mom. You’re a better dad. You’re a better worker. You’re a better husband. You’re a better wife. I absolutely whole-heartedly believe in Coolsculpting and know that when we take people from the body that they have to the body that they want, they go out and they become more productive, loving, and engaged human beings.

Ultherapy Atlanta – The Nonsurgical Face Lift

Today, I’d like to review a very special procedure for you. It’s a procedure that everyone wants to know about. I’ll be reviewing Ultherapy. Ultherapy is ultrasound that’s going to wipe out face lifts, or least postpone face lifts or help when you do have a face lift.

Ultherapy is a relatively new treatment. It’s been in the United States for about 5 years. The really great thing about it is that there’s no downtime in the treatment. Not like a face lift where you have to recover for 3-4 weeks. It gives you lifting and tightening. It’s different from a laser. It’s not a laser. it uses ultrasound treatment and it’s below the surface of the skin, so it gives you a nice lift and tightening effect because what it does is it allows the deeper tissues to make new collagen. As we age, our collagen tends to get a little disorganized and we lose some of our volume and we some of our tissues tend to descend.

What happens with Ultherapy is, it uses ultrasound to generate heat deep in the tissues (not on the skin but deeper in the surface), and that allows the muscle layer in the deeper tissues to tighten. This is a gradual process. It’s the only FDA-approved treatment that allows for lifting as well as tightening without undergoing the knife.

So it’s one time only unless you want to touch up in a year or two. It’s ultrasound and it will stop the fear of having to have a face lift again, or if you really can’t afford a face lift I think this is really cost-effective. Some people see an effect immediately, and then there’s an additional effect about two weeks after the treatment. This continues up to three to six months when you get your peak maximal effects. It’s on-going and subtle.

It isn’t too painful, but more importantly, not having to cut your face at this point in your life and have a chance to have a refreshed feeling is very great. For more information, visit the Ultherapy Atlanta page from Slimplasty.
