Detroit Clinic Integrates SmartSense Technology with SmartLipo
Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on May 18, 2010
SmartLipo is among the most sought-after liposuction procedures available in the United States, a laser liposuction technique that works by heating up and emulsifying the fat cells before extraction, causing a skin tightening effect and better results.
The SmartLipo device is currently used at the Masri Clinic for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, and the clinic is now the first and only venue in the United States that has incorporated SmartSense technology into the treatment. This innovative body sculpting treatment is available at medical facilities in Rochester and Dearborn, Michigan.
The SmartLipo laser is administered under local anesthetic, and most people can return to work within a few days after the procedure. Dr. Masri, a board-certified physician at the Masri Clinic states that, “SmartLipo has become extremely popular due to the significant decrease in risk and shorter recovery time compared to traditional liposuction.”
SmartLipo is the first and only laser-assisted lipolysis system that offers permanent fat removal using a high-powered laser and less downtime than other liposuction treatments. Since it is minimally-invasive, the patient will see faster results, a shorter recovery time, and can expect fewer complications than traditional procedures.
The patient is completely conscious during the procedure. The SmartSense technology works to calibrate the laser, resulting in a more accurate and flaweless treatment. The calibrated laser liquefies the fat deposits through the layers of skin, and then ruptures the fat cells so that the surgeon can remove them through a tiny incision. Since the heat from the laser damages the surrounding tissue, the body begins to produce collagen to heal itself, and this causes the skin to contract and tighten on its own.
