How to Get Smooth and Firm

Nov 29th, 2013 In: Fat Removal

Dear Dr.Anne,

I'm taking a trip to Tahiti next Spring, and want to take advantage of my Christmas vacation to get ready. What can you do to help me be firm and gorgeous by trip time?


Dear Laura,

Ah, Tahiti ... how exciting! Good for you! Here at Carolina Laser & Cosmetic Center, we can help you get beach-body ready in a number of ways.

Firming is probably the biggest sought-after benefit of cosmetic dermatology these days. One of the hottest trending and most effective treatments available for firming today is SmartLipo Triplex  LaserBodySculpting. The winter months  are the PERFECT time to get body sculpting procedures done. You can take advantage of the time off from work, and the added layers of clothing can help to conceal your transformation if that's important to you.

No matter how strictly some of my patients diet or exercise, many of them just cannot eliminate localized areas of fat, like the abdomen or the upper regions of the arms. The SmartLipo Triplex laser is ideal for treating these areas for mainly 2 reasons: it permanently eliminates fat deposits, and also stimulates collagen production, leaving the skin firm. Often referred  to as "Lunchtime Lipo", it's minimally invasive and takes little time for recovery. And in contrast to traditional liposuction, healing is significantly accelerated - my patients who have small areas to be treated are able to return to normal activities, such as work, in 2-3 days. Swelling is gone within a few weeks, and optimal tightening happens after 3-6 months post procedure.

Call us today to schedule a consultation to discuss the various treatment options available, and let's get started on a new firmer you!

Dr. Anne White
