The Latest Laser Lipo Innovation: SmartLipo Triplex, 3 Wavelengths to Melt Fat and Tighten Skin


A new SmartLipo system, the SmartLipo Triplex, will debut at the ASPS 2009 annual Plastic Surgery meeting this weekend in Seattle.

Cynosure, Inc. (Nasdaq: CYNO), an aesthetic laser manufacturer, introduced SmartLipo Triplex(TM), the first laser lipolysis technology that uses three wavelengths which are well absorbed by fat and allow for greater tissue tightening. SmartLipo Triplex will be launched at Plastic Surgery 2009, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) Annual Meeting, which starts this Friday in Seattle.

Through Cynosure's patented MultiPlex technology, the three wavelengths are combined in one laser output. Two wavelengths fire sequentially, liquefying the fat and tightening the skin with collagen stimulation.

This new generation of SmartLipo technology offers 20 times greater fat absorption than single wavelength lasers. Dr. Barry DiBernardo, Medical Director of New Jersey Plastic Surgery & MedNet Technologies, Inc. in Montclair, NJ, says "Combining the photomechanical effects of the 1440 nm with the 1064 nm wavelength results in even greater disruption of fatty tissue for faster and deeper treatments than the 1064 wavelength alone. At the same time, the Smartlipo Triplex continues to deliver unmatched tissue tightening through tissue coagulation by blending the 1064 and 1320 nm wavelengths."

Smartlipo Triplex is equipped with SmartSense with ThermaGuide. This feature constantly measures the temperature under the skin and controls the output of energy, ensuring that the treatment area stays within a safe range so that it is hot enough to work efficiently, but not so hot as to cause the patient harm.

"Smartlipo Triplex is the technology of choice for my body sculpting procedures," said John Millard, M.D., a board-certified plastic surgeon based in Denver. "It allows for quick and efficient removal of fat without excess heat - a requirement for high-definition results."
