Smart Laser Liposuction in Scotland
At Kings Cosmetic clinic we offer revolutionary new laser liposuction treatment within easy driving distance of Glasgow & Edinburgh.
We use the Fotona XP-2 Focus laser lipolysis machine which is five times more powerful than the original DEKA SmartLipo machine - improvements in technology mean that treatment is quicker and the results much better!
Laser liposuction (also known as laser lipolysis) is performed at our cosmetic clinic in Scotland under local anaesthetic with minimal down-time and without the discomfort of invasive traditional liposuction surgery. Sometimes known as ’lunch-time lipo‘ because you can return to work quickly with little or no down-time and minimal discomfort.
SmartLipo Laser Lipolysis - with suction
Another improvement in technology has enabled us to offer ‘aspiration’ (suction) as an addition to our SmartLipo treatment.
Aspiration involves gently sucking out the fat released during the laser lipolysis procedure. There is no significant discomfort associated with suction and the client may still return to normal activities the next day.
Evidence of the amount of fat removed is provided on the day of treatment, and then the client may also look forward to further improvements over a period of three to four months.
Suction provides earlier results than SmartLipo alone and some practitioners believe that the overall final outcomes tend to be better.
I had Smart Lipo treatment on my inner and outer thighs. The results have been wonderful, I would not have been able to shift this weight without the treatment. I would thoroughly recommend it. I feel thinner, fitter and happier! Well worth it!
I am pleased to say that my trouser/skirt size has gone down from a size 14 to a size 12. The most exciting thing about all this is that I feel good about myself again and my friends and relatives have noticed and keep commenting on how good I look.

I thought you would like to know that I am becoming increasingly delighted with the work you carried out on my chin/jawline recently. When I was out shopping yesterday, I passed several mirrors and liked what I saw for the first time in years! I do not look nearly as "jowly" as I used to. The skin on the areas where I had smartlipo also appears to have tightened up nicely
