SmartLipo and CoolLipo
The SmartLipo and CoolLipo are two lasers developed by Palomar and New Star lasers, respectively. The laser light is passed under the surface of the skin and has been reported to accomplish two tasks:
- Lipolysis or ablation of fat cells
- Modulation of the skin resulting in remodeling and tightening
The patients still require some conventional suctioning after the treatment with the lasers, but are stated to note less discomfort and post-treatment bruising as well. In addition, this procedure is able to be performed under a local anesthesia and often does not require wearing a compression garment as required with conventional liposuction.
