Smartlipo: Take off what dieting won’t

You’ve tried dieting. You’ve tried exercise. But parts of your body have simply refused to tone up. Now you can change that. Laser Body Sculpting is a revolutionary, minimally invasive treatment that does something no fitness routine in the world can: permanently destroy fat cells. Since your body has only a finite amount of these cells, no new fat cells come back. You can finally have that body you’ve always wanted.

Introducing SmartLipo TriPlex!!!! Three different services under one platform!

SmartLipo Triplex, Cellulaze & Precision Tx

The newest upgrade, Smartlipo, Triplex, is designed to eliminate fat for an improved body sculpting experience.

Heron MedSpa takes pride in keeping up with the latest technology trends for our cosmetic treatments and procedures for the best results possible. The SmartLipo TriPlex system works by liquefying the fat cells before extraction, which means less trauma to the surrounding tissues, and a more precise and accurate procedure.

The SmartLipo TriPlex system is slightly different than the conventional laser body sculpting procedure because it uses two wavelengths of energy to break down the fat cells and tighten the skin simultaneously. This gives the surgeon more control over the fat removal process, and also produces more aesthetically pleasing results.

There are no exercises or diet practices available that can help tighten the skin after such a procedure, and some patients undergo subsequent body-sculpting surgery to streamline their silhouette, or pursue noninvasive procedures such as Velashape that help smooth out the skin temporarily. SmartLipo TriPlex eliminates the need for this additional treatment by tightening the skin as it works.

Got Cellulite? We have the specially designed Cellulaze feature to smooth your dimples and ripples with this treatment.

Precision Tx was introduced to treat the neck and to combat hyperhidrosis. The neck involves 3 tiny 1.5 mm incisions. Results include:

  • a 29% decrease in skin laxity
  • a 29% increase in skin thickness and collagen production
  • recovery is quick and healing is fast
  • Excessive sweating of the underarm
  • No painful Botulinum toxin injections (Botox).
  • No medications.

99% of patients return to daily activities in 2 days: • “1,000 Consecutive Cases of Laser-Assisted

Frequently Asked Questions


How does Smart-Lipo work?

A very small cannula (tube) containing a laser fiber that is inserted into the skin. The cannula is moved back and forth delivering the laser’s energy directly to the fat cells, causing them to rupture and easily drain away. The laser energy also interacts with the dermis, resulting in skin shrinkage or tightening.

This is a minimally invasive procedure and can be performed under local anesthesia. The laser causes small blood vessels to coagulate immediately on contact, resulting in less bleeding, unnecessary, the procedure is a very safe, with only minimal side effects.


What are the benefits of Smart-Lipo?

  • Eliminates unwanted fat and fat tissue irregularities
  • Promotes tissue coagulation, resulting in skin tissue tightening
  • Improves flabby or lax skin and areas of high vascularity
  • Minimal edema and bleeding due to the laser’s hemostatic properties
  • Minimal to no scarring, bruising, and no stitches
  • Causes less trauma and faster healing time than traditional liposuction
  • Minimal discomfort is involved and only a short recovery time. Return to your normal routine in a day or two.
  • It tightens the skin around the treatment area
  • It is more affordable, effective, and safer than traditional liposuction
  • It offers the smoothest, best body-contouring results


What areas of the body can be treated?

Smart-Lipo is a great adjunct to traditional liposuction procedures, although it does not replace conventional liposuction. We are able to treat areas such as the male chest reduction, chin/neck, arms, upper abdomen, lower abdomen, above bra, under bra, love handles, back/flanks, saddle bags, inner thighs, outer thighs, back of the legs, knees and buttocks. 


Does Smart-Lipo treat cellulite?

The procedure will improve the body’s shape and may improve cellulite to a certain degree, particularly in your legs and arms.


Am I a candidate?

If you have fat that will not respond to diet and exercise, then you’re a candidate for Smart-Lipo. Ideal candidates are in good health, of normal body weight and have realistic expectations for results.


How does Smart-Lipo compare to conventional liposuction?

Conventional liposuction is meant to remove greater amounts of fat. However, since this can leave behind unsightly pockets of skin, Smart-Lipo is the perfect option.


How many treatments are required?

For most patients, only one treatment is required. Smart-Lipo is also an ideal choice for “touch ups” and revisions. Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over three to six months.


Is there a recovery period?

Some soreness and light pain can occur, but you will be able to return to work in a day or two and resume exercise after 2 weeks.


Do I have to do anything post-treatment?

After the treatment you will need to wear a compression garment for 30 days, depending on the body areas being treated. Rest is recommended after the procedure and activity may be resumed gradually. Most patients will relax for several days post-surgery and will resume further activities as their body feels more comfortable. Post-operative instructions about ice and massage treatment are provided.


Does Smart-Lipo produce lasting results?

Yes! This procedure permanently destroys the treated fat cells. Adults do not create new fat cells. When a person gains weight, fat cells simply expand.


Does this procedure have FDA Clearance?

Smart-Lipo has been cleared by the FDA for laser-assisted lipolysis.
