When choosing your dermatologist for minor or major procedures, it is vital to ensure that you’re choosing an expert in the field. At JUVA Skin & Laser Center our Manhattan dermatologist, Dr. Bruce Katz, is considered a pioneer in the field of non-surgical and surgical dermatology. He has been featured on multitudes of major shows, including The Today Show, The Doctors, CNN, among others. Dr. Katz has received such praise due to his extensive efforts to not only learn new concepts and techniques, but also to teach them. Dr. Katz was even the very first dermatologist approved to perform procedures using SmartLipo™.
SmartLipo™ is a revolutionary laser-liposuction procedure that Dr. Katz was not only the first to be approved to use, but our practice has trained more physicians on the use of SmartLipo™ than any other facility in the US.
How Does SmartLipo™ Work?
Rather than using a typical cannula like traditional liposuction, SmartLipo™ utilizes a heated cannula. The cannula also has heat-sensing capabilities and a top-of-the-line laser so our Manhattan dermatologist can provide you with better, more precise results. By utilizing heat, SmartLipo™ liquefies the fat cells making them easier to remove. It also heats the tissues in the surrounding areas, stimulating collagen and elastin production, which tightens the skin. Collagen and elastin are the building blocks of youthful and healthy looking skin.
SmartLipo™ allows Dr. Katz to more efficiently remove fat cells from problem areas all over the body, but is also more precise so you’ll have less downtime and discomfort than typical liposuction procedures.
