San Francisco: Smart Lipo Offers Real Advantages With New System

Dr. Sheena Kong says the advanced SmartLipo triplex system helps her to perform more effective fat melting and to achieve better liposculpture results. “The triplex adds a third laser wavelength for more robust fat melting and skin tightening,” says Dr. Kong.

Online PR News – 23-August-2012 – San Francisco, CA – San Francisco, CA - “Liposuction and body sculpting continues to rank among the most in-demand cosmetic procedures, and Smartlipo is arguably the most well-known liposculpture system,” says Dr. Sheena Kong. “Now an advanced version known as Smartlipo triplex is showing several real advantages for patients.”

“The most current Smartlipo triplex uses three different wavelengths of laser energy. The earlier systems used just two,” says Dr. Kong. “The addition of the third wavelength brings a much higher affinity for fat cells, and so treatments are now much more robust in terms of fat melting. Typically during a Smartlipo triplex treatment, I use two of the wavelengths together to melt the fat; then I use a different wavelength combination for a shallow skin deep treatment to heat up the tissue. This promotes the generation of more collagen to tighten the skin."

The manufacturer, Cynosure conducted a study which showed 18% shrinkage of skin after the Smartlipo laser treatment according to Dr. Kong. The company says this new technology achieves 20 times greater fat absorption than single wavelength lasers.

“This tightening effect on the skin is very important, “ says Dr. Kong. For example, in treating the abdomen the skin is loosened with removal of fat volume. When properly performed, the procedure with Smartlipo triplex can tighten and tone the tummy and eliminate the need for a “tummy tuck”. Compared to other liposuction systems, Smartlipo triplex reduces bruising and bleeding significantly and shortens recovery time.

Smartlipo triplex is also effective when used to reduce male gynocomastia (man boobs). “This is an embarrassing problem for many of my male patients,” says Dr. Kong. “Male gynocomastia can be due to glandular or fat, or a combination of the two,” says Dr. Kong. “It’s sometimes difficult to tell just by palpating the patient's breast tissue, as the breast glandular tissue is blended in with the fat. The Smartlipo is excellent for this procedure because the laser can melt the fat as well as loosen up the fibrotic tissue found in a  man's breasts. It's a much easier procedure when this is done with Smartlipo and the recovery is very fast. Skin will also be tightened. with the full result to be expected about 4 to 6 months after the procedure.
