Board-certified surgeon Dr. David Berman sculpts bodies with 30–120 minutes of deftly wielded laser light, melting away fat in minimally invasive surgical procedures. The Cynosure SmartLipo TriPlex employs a laser fiber inserted under the skin to rupture fat cells while gently heating the dermis to tighten and stimulate collagen growth. The small size of the fiber minimizes swelling and bruising caused by more invasive procedures, and local anesthesia keeps treated areas from feeling pain or being vulnerable during posttreatment tickle fights.
