Minimally Invasive Body Contouring Q & A

What is minimally invasive body contouring?

Minimally invasive body contouring is a laser-assisted procedure that harnesses the power of light to target fat cells beneath your skin without surgery.

The Connecticut Pain Specialists team uses Smartlipo®, an advanced aesthetics platform by Cynosure®, to heat fat beneath your skin's surface. Your body then eliminates the fat over time, resulting in significant fat reduction.

Is minimally invasive body contouring safe?

The providers at Connecticut Pain Specialists have specialized training and extensive experience using the Smartlipo platform to create beautiful, natural-looking results.

The laser has precision settings so that the body contouring treatment won't harm your skin or surrounding tissues. Smartlipo is also an FDA-cleared approach for fat reduction.

How many body contouring treatments will I need? 

The team at Connecticut Pain Specialists designs a program based on your body and your treatment goals. Usually, a series of treatments are required for optimal results. However, Smartlipo is proven to remove unwanted fat after a single treatment.

You can count on the experienced aesthetics team to give you definition and contour in all the right spots, supporting a renewed confidence in your appearance.

What does it feel like to have minimally invasive body contouring?

Smartlipo body contouring sessions usually last about 30 minutes. Treatments aren't painful, but you can expect to feel some gentle warmth and a tingling sensation during the procedure.

There's no downtime with laser body contouring, and you can return to normal activities right after your session. You may have a little bruising and stiffness around the treatment site, but this typically goes away within 24 hours.

You should notice the effects of your first treatment after about six weeks, with significant definition and tone visible after about 12 weeks.

Am I a candidate for body contouring?

As long as you're in generally good health and you're already at a stable weight, it's likely you're a good candidate for Smartlipo.

Body contouring isn't a weight loss treatment, so you may wish to consider a medical weight loss program before or during your Smartlipo treatments.
