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.
Eliminate areas of unwanted fat and tone your entire body with laser-assisted lipolysis.
- Permanently destroys fat cells – they burst and can never return!
- Improves overall body shape
- Minimally invasive – Local anesthesia means that you are awake!
- Coagulation resulting in tissue tightening
- Increases collagen formation resulting in skin tightening
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 MPX 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 MPX 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 bodysculpting surgery to streamline their silhouette, or pursue noninvasive procedures such as Velashape that help smooth out the skin temporarily. Smartlipo MPX eliminates the need for this additional treatment by tightening the skin as it works.
Frequently Asked Questions
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.

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 arms, thighs, knees, abdomen, male chest reduction, bra area, love handles, saddle bags, buttocks, and back/flanks.
The procedure will improve the body’s shape and may improve cellulite to a certain degree, particularly in your legs and arms.
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.
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.
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.
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.
After the treatment you will need to wear a compression garment for 3-4 weeks, 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.
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.
Smart-Lipo has been cleared by the FDA for laser-assisted lipolysis.
