Laser liposuction using SmartLipo Triplex
This FDA-approved workstation utilizes three powerful laser wavelengths 1440, 1320, 1064 nm to effectively treat both large and delicate areas. It can be used to remove fat and tighten skin in the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, love handles, arms, knees, ankles, calves, neck, and face. The area to be treated is first numbed with a tumescent local anesthesia. The surgeon then makes a tiny incision in the treatment site and inserts the small laser-enabled cannula to deliver laser energy which melts the fat cells. The liquefied fat is removed safely without causing much discomfort to the patient through the same incision SmartLipo is designed to coagulate the blood vessels and minimize bleeding as well as to stimulate collagen production and tighten loose skin. This device also features intelligent delivery systems – ThermaGuide, SmartSense and ThermaView. These systems help the surgeon monitor skin temperature and to maintain energy delivery can at an optimal level. This helps prevent trauma and injury and promotes patient safety.
