SmartLipo Alexandria VA


Sometimes a weight loss solution can’t just consist of diet and exercise alone. For parts of the body that are stubborn to take off, Heron Med Spa offers a laser liposuction ~ a fat burning alternative called “SmartLipo.”

What is SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is a revolutionary and minimally invasive treatment that permanently destroys fat cells. This laser body sculpting method destroys the finite amount of fat cells in the body and therefore, prevents them from coming back. SmartLipo eliminates the tough areas of the body you can’t get rid of, no matter how hard you may diet and exercise.

Other benefits to receiving SmartLipo include:

  • Improves overall body shape
  • Coagulation (tissue tightening)
  • Increases collagen formation
  • Minimal to no scarring
  • Short recovery time
  • Tightens skin around treatment area


How does laser liposuction for body sculpting?

This laser sculpting procedure works by inserting a one millimeter tube into the skin and delivers energy straight to the fat cells. This causes the fat cells to rupture and drain away as a liquid. As the fat cells break, tissue around the area begins to coagulate, resulting in firmer and tighter skin.

What areas of the body does SmartLipo treat?

This Laser Body Sculpting method is ideal for the love handles, abdomen, back, under and above bra, inner and outer thighs, saddle bags, buttocks, upper shelf of the buttocks and knees. We also treat male breast or gynecomastia reduction.

Who is a good candidate?

This treatment is ideal for those who have that stubborn fat that isn’t receptive to diet or exercise.

How does this procedure compare to that of traditional liposuction?

Conventional liposuction removes greater amounts of fat, but can leave behind excess skin whereas SmartLipo laser liposuction does not and is the perfect alternative to the traditional liposuction procedure.

What is the recovery period like?

Being a minimally invasive procedure, laser liposuction requires only local anesthesia. In other words, you are awake.  Though slight trauma can happen, you can return to your daily activities in a couple days and exercise in 2 weeks.

How long until results are seen?

Usually only one treatment is required and results can be noticed within a week. A compression garment must be worn on the body for a minimum of one month or until healed.
