I recently had SmartLipo done about three weeks ago. And I have to admit that my first laser hair removal treatment hurt more. I had a painfree SmartLipo procedure. I immediately saw results b/c the physician performing my procedure also used suction. Initially he used the laser on my lower stomach and hips. Then he suctioned and after that he lasered again to help tighten the skin. I am VERY happy with my results. I was a bit tender the first day... but it wasn't awful. The worst part of the procedure is wearing the garment.
