SmartLipo – Laser Liposuction
Smart Lipo is brought to the marketplace by Cynosure. Smart Lipo is actually where laser liposuction began. The smart lipo system offers all the benefits of high quality laser liposuction. The Smart Lipo system is an established technology with an excellent reputation and also has actually been tested and proven successful.
In SmartLipo method the small cannula and powerful laser offers specific targeting of even smallest body part. So that surgeon can target pockets of fat that would otherwise be untreatable with traditional liposuction. The laser not only melts that fat and assists its removal but it also causes small blood vessels to thicken immediately which reduce bruising and the chance of blood loss. Once fat has been melted and removed then lastly that same laser stimulates collagen retraction and skin tightening which are optimal shrinking the skin. SmartLipo is often used in combination with cellulite treatments. This method can be used with only local anesthesia which reduces patient health complications from general anesthesia.
Interesting thing about this method is that laser wavelengths actually stimulate most favorable results. For example the 1064 nm wavelength is known to be excellent at liquefying fat cells while the 1320 nm wavelength is known to be the best for motivating collagen rejuvenation. The SmartLipo lasers come up with several products which help surgeons to maximize the benefits of laser liposuction. So it is advisable to know before you go in for your procedure that which version of Smart liposuction you will be getting.
Cynosure now offers three different systems of liposuction which include:
The original SartLipo in three wattages (6W, 12W, and 18W)
The SmartLipo MPX that combines multiple laser wavelengths for improved result. The SmartLipo MPX maximizes fat removal and tissue firming through coagulation by using both 1064 nm and 1320 nm wavelengths.
The SmartLipo Triplex that combines three different wavelengths including 1064 nm, 1320 nm and 1440 nm. The 1440 nm wavelength has been added to the triplex because of its powerful absorption of fatty tissues.
If your surgeon chooses to use SmartLipo technology be sure to understand which system they use and how the technology will be employed. You will have a much better experience and result from your SmartLipo by being a well-educated patient.
CoolLipo – Laser Liposuction
Like other laser lipo system CoolLipo laser liposuction is a technology that uses laser wavelengths to liquefy fat and firm the skin. coolLipo candidates are in good health condition and are not planning to use liposuction as a weight loss technique but quiet for body sculpting and contouring.
CoolLipo by CoolTouch Inc. is specially designed for smaller areas of treatment in the face, chin and neck. This contains fat deposits that are mostly stubborn and resistant to any kind of weight loss or traditional liposuction. Many people think that in these areas on face the only option is a face lift or neck lift, but CoolLipo is also a possible solution for this. In this method you get the laser lipolysis less invasive than a full face or neck lift and also the recovery time is significantly shorter. Because of the small volume of fat and all the other anatomical structures and tissues that need to be protected, traditional liposuction is very difficult to use in these areas of the body.
The CoolLipo laser is specially designed to protect tissues other than fat. as CoolLipo is designed for contouring the face and neck, the laser also maximize the other benefit of laser lipo like skin tightening and collagen renewal. The CoolLipo also uses a short pulse width which ensures maximum fat removal and protect those non fatty tissues. This laser liposuction technology also uses high peak power for gentle but systematical fat distraction. Once the fat is disrupted and removed, the skin in the face and neck firms and tightens so you get the look of facelift by an outpatient procedure with minimal healing time.
CoolLipo laser lipolysis requires only local anesthesia so reduces risk to the patient and the overall cost off the procedure. This laser liposculpter is gentle so the procedure time and down-time post procedure both are very short. CoolLipo laser lipolysis can be performed in a doctor’s office. If you are looking for a facial rejuvenation through liposuction then CoolLipo may be an excellent option for you.
LipoTherme and LipoControl
LipoTherme is another considered laser lipolysis technology by Cynosure. In this technology by using a smaller laser housed in a cannula fatty deposits are disrupted with heat and smooth the process of their removal. Like other laser lipolysis the LipoTherme is often used in areas where traditional liposuction would not be successful and the areas of the body where diet and exercise will not be able to reduce the fatty deposits.
LipoTherme is used 980 nm wavelength to target and emulsify fatty deposits below the skin. they have specially designed and patented cannula which houses the laser and offers smooth and consistent countouring. A tiny incision that heals quickly and results in less scarring. LipoTherme laser liposuction offers control and accuracy to surgeon and allowing targeting the smallest and most stubborn pockets of fat.
Osyris medical has brought the real difference to the market is in their LipoControl technology which is used in combination with their LipoTherme laser liposuction treatment. LipoControl offers an actual on screen image of the patient’s area of the treatment, so the surgeon can see accuratlely where they are and what they are doing. This technology uses heat imaging to map the location of the laser and cannula. As the surgeon moves the cannula underneath the skin the laser power strengthens and weakens. In fact, the LipoControl will turn off the laser when the surgeon stop movement altogether. This kind of protection and control is a great advance in laser liposuction.
When LipoControl and LipoTherme are used together, the surgeons are able to offer the best possible results to patients. This type of laser liposuction is ideal for small particular areas like the face, neck, back, parts of the abdomen and arms. LipoControl and LipoTherme are used in outpatient procedures like other laser liposuction. In this technology usually only local anesthesia is required which reduces both cost and risk of the patient and also reduces bruising and bleeding.
LipoTherme and LipoControl have a good reputation for achieving desired result. If your surgeon uses LipoTherme and LipoControl for laser liposuction treatment be sure about how they plan to use the technology and understand complete procedure and treatment.
