Smart Lipo

SmartLipo is a minimally-invasive liposuction procedure which removes excess body fat. The SmartLipo laser creates multiple tunnels underneath the skin, severs lax mattress string-like fibers (which are the primary cause of cellulite) and heats the overlying skin which stimulates it to contract. We target pockets of unwanted fat with a laser, immediately dissolving the cells into fluid. This fluid is then released and drained out of your body naturally; Add to this the laser also stimulates collagen production, resulting in tighter, smoother skin in the treated areas. This is an ideal choice for patients considering liposuction, yet may be apprehensive about undergoing an intricate procedure. The SmartLipo laser is designed to take care of multiple areas of the body. The SmartLipo laser liposuction is safer than traditional liposuction, simply because the risks of bruising and bleeding are drastically decreased. The results from SmartLipo laser liposuction are more pleasing and refined than what can be achieved by standard liposuction. SmartLipo provides the maximum level of safety, comfort and efficiency while affording quicker healing and recovery time. This cutting edge procedure combines the power of Tumescent Anesthesia, SmartLipoâ„¢ Laser Body Sculpting and Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL)

All procedures are done by an experienced surgical trained specialist M.D
The treated area is numbed with a local anesthesia which allows you to be awake during the procedure
Next a tiny incision the size of the tip of a pen
The SmartLipo laser is inserted through a very small tube into your body.
This laser will rupture the membranes of the fat cells
The fat cells are permanently destroyed
Once the fat has been liquefied it is gently removed with a small vacuum
The laser will produce collagen in the skin which then tightens the surrounding skin

Key Benefits:

  • Short recovery time – usually less than 2 days
  • Minimally invasive procedure that destroys fat cells
  • Minor discomfort controlled with local anesthetic
  • Safer than typical liposuction procedures
  • Promotes tissue coagulation resulting in tissue tightening
  • Less Trauma

Using only a local anesthetic the procedure usually takes several hours in–office, we target pockets of unwanted fat with a laser, immediately dissolving the cells into fluid. This fluid is then released and drained out of your body naturally. In addition the laser also stimulates collagen production, resulting in tighter, smoother skin in the treated areas. Because Smart Lipo is a non–invasive procedure, it is ideal for many areas of the body, including:

  • Chin
  • Arms
  • Male breast
  • Upper abdominal
  • Lower abdominal
  • Waist
  • Inner & outer thighs
  • Inner & outer knee

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) – Men and Woman

One of the effects of aging is that hormones start to decline. By the time middle age is reached, naturally produced hormones like testosterone, estrogen, progesterone and others get so low, we start to experience issues that affect our performance, appearance and overall perspective.

Hormone replacement therapy, otherwise known as HRT, is used by millions of men and women to replace and replenish declining hormones. By boosting the presence of hormones back to youthful levels can have many benefits.

Male Overview

Testosterone, DHEA, thyroid and other hormones are key elements of male health. Hormones are dispatched all over the human body to stimulate specified activities from growth, digestion, reproduction, and sexual function. Testosterone in particular, is essential to muscle health, brain function and mental health, sex drive, digestive health and overall energy.

Male Potential Benefits

  • Increased Energy, Stamina and Endurance
  • Improved Concentration
  • Increased Muscle Strength
  • Increased Sexual Stamina and Potency
  • Better Mental Function and Memory
  • Lower Cholesterol Levels

Female Overview

The female body experiences several hormonal declines with age including, estrogen, progesterone and even testosterone decline. The potential imbalances these declines can cause include sexual, mental, emotional and physical problems. Traditional therapies for these types of hormonal declines, such as contraceptives and anti-depressants are widely used; these approaches fail to address the core of the problem. The body is losing hormones it naturally utilizes to promote energy, memory, libido and skin tone.

For many, a custom tailored hormone replacement therapy program, which combines diet and exercise can improve many of the symptoms that women as young as 35 suffer from. Women in their mid-thirties and forties also face pre-menopause and women in their fifties and beyond become vulnerable to menopause.

Pre-Menopause Symptoms:

irregular menstrual cycles, breast tenderness, irritability, mood swings, anxiety, weight gain, lack of concentration, water retention and low libido.

Menopause Symptoms:

Exercise and diet resistance, weight gain, breast tenderness and headaches, anxiety and tearfulness, hot flashes and insomnia, reduced sex drive, mood swings and depression, foggy thinking and confusion.

A customized Hormone Replacement Therapy program can not only help with many of the above symptoms but can also improves memory and cognitive function, immune system strength, increased libido and sexual desire.


Laser Hair Removal

Our world class facility is fully equipped to provide a full range of laser hair removal services.  If you’re not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering.  Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorbs the light. That destroys the hair.  Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

  • Precision - lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
  • Speed - each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
  • Predictability - ninety percent of patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to five sessions.



What is TriActive

TriActive is the result of the newest technology for restoring a normal balance to all of the seven layers of your skin. TriActive is an innovative and painless treatment for all body and skin types

TriActive is used in a combination with other therapies which will enhance the outcomes of surgical and non-surgical procedures including liposuction and dermal fillers

What is Cellulite

The term; cellulite refers to the dimpled appearance of the skin that occurs mostly, but not limited to, hips, thighs, and buttocks. This appearance is much more common in women due to the differences in the way fat, muscle, and connective tissue are distributed within women’s skin. The American Academy of Dermatology reports at least 80 percent of women have cellulite.

Other contributing factors:

  • Hormonal changes
  • Decrease in microcirculation leading to fluid retention and toxin build up
  • Aging leading to loss of skin elasticity and tightening of the connective tissue that encloses the fat cells.

How does Tri-Active treat cellulite?

During a Tri-Active treatment, low level laser diodes penetrate skin tissue along with a deep massaging action which reduces cellulite and smoothes the affected area.  Tri-Active improves microcirculation and stimulates the lymphatic system to reduce excess fluid and toxins.  This in turn increases skin elasticity giving your skin a fresher appearance.

What parts of the body can be treated?

Tri- Active is not limited to just your thighs and buttocks for cellulite removal. Tri-Active may also be used on the face, neck, upper and lower abdomen, upper arms and thghts. This procedure provides noticeable result before and after liposuction and after aesthetic surgery, such as breast augmentation, abdominoplasty and others.

Is Tri-Active painful?

The Tri-active treatment is not painful; most individuals report that it just feels great!

How long does a treatment take?

Treatments are typically done in a series of about 10 to 15 treatments to a given area. These can be spaced as closely as 3 times per week, or as far out as once per week.

Radiesse How it Works

The Aging Process
Aging is a part of life, and as the years pass, the less vibrant, refreshed and youthful the skin may begin to look. In youthful skin, there is an abundance of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which give it volume, support and suppleness. As a part of the aging process, these natural support structures become less plentiful. The result is facial lines, wrinkles and skin laxity - all of which rob the skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.
