Q-What is SlimLipo?
A-SlimLipo is a laser-assisted fat removal method which combines liposuction and laser techniques to safely and effectively melt and remove unwanted fat from areas of the face and body while also helping to tighten the surrounding skin.
Q-What areas of the body can be treated with SlimLipo?
Q-How does SlimLipo compare to other laser or liposuction techniques?
A-SlimLipo can be used to treat many areas of the face and body. Commonly treated areas include the neck, arms, love handles, stomach and knees.
A-There are many advantages of SlimLipo compared to other laser techniques like Smart Lipo, as well as other traditional liposuction techniques. SlimLipo uses two different wavelengths of light along with continuous wave technology for greater precision with less downtime and less risk of skin injury. The laser also produces a skin tightening effect that cannot be achieved with traditional liposuction techniques. Unlike other laser lipo procedures SlimLipo can be performed with tumescent anesthesia which facilitates fat removal and decreases bruising.

A-SlimLipo is an appropriate treatment for many different types of individuals. While the procedure can be used to remove larger volumes of fat, it is also ideal for the treatment of smaller areas, areas with little or no fat, and contour deformities. Because there is little downtime, it is particularly appealing to those with busy lifestyles who cannot afford the longer recoveries associated with other procedures.
