Is Smartlipo Safe for Dark Skin?

Smartlipo is Safe for All Skin Types

Regardless of ethnicity or skin type, studies have shown that laser liposuction procedures do not cause changes in skin pigmentation1 or increase the possibility of complications, including thermal burn injuries to the skin2. This includes Smartlipo procedures.

At WIFH, we have performed over 10,000 Smartlipo procedures. Our patients represent 52 different countries from around the world, all with unique skin types, and we have treated them all safely with exceptional results.
