SlimLipo™ - Laser Liposuction Laser Body Sculpting™
The SlimLipo™ is the first laser system designed for LaserBodySculpting™ and for the disruption of fat cells. It is ideal for treating localized deposits of unwanted fat, fat tissue irregularities & for coagulating tissue leading to a tightening effect. SlimLipo™ is ideal for treating the face, neck, arms, male breasts (gynecomastia), "bra fat," "love handles," saddle bags," inner and outer thighs, knees and other areas of loose or lax skin (flabby skin).
What are the benefits of SlimLipo
Treats unwanted fat and fat tissue irregularities
Promotes tissue coagulation resulting in skin tissue tightening
Less post operative bleeding due to the laser’s hemostatic properties
Less post operative bruising
Causes less trauma and faster healing time than traditional liposuction
What type of system is used
At CALI we use the state of the art Palomar Slim Lipo Laser. The SlimLipo™ Body Sculpting Laser uses 924 nm and 975 nm wavelengths to selectively target adipose and dermal tissue for the most efficient fat "melting" through laser-assisted lipolysis available today. The SlimLipo system
is FDA cleared for laser-assisted lipolysis and it is the first system optimized specifically for this application.
Does Laser Lipo produce lasting results?
Yes! The SlimLipo™ procedure permanently destroys the treated fat cells. Adults do not create new fat cells. When a person gains weight, that person’s fat cells simply expand. Should you gain weight, that fat will most likely be deposited in areas where the procedure was not performed.
Who is a good candidate for the procedure?
Ideal candidates are in good health, close to normal body weight and have realistic expectations for the results. If the person has areas of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise, then that person is a candidate for LaserLipo.
For most patients, typically only one treatment is required. LaserLipo is also an ideal choice for “touch ups” and revisions.
How many treatments are required?
The SlimLipo procedure.
Smartlipo™ laserlipolysis is a minimally invasive surgical procedure. The procedure disrupts the fat cells through a thermal and photodisruptive action heating and shattering the fat cell membrane. The laser coagulates the underlying vessels due to the hemostatic properties of the laser, resulting in less bleeding, bruising, trauma as well as less down time. As an added benefit, the system has also been reported to promote tissue tightening through bulk thermal heating and tissue coagulation.
A laser fiber is introduced through a handpiece and detachable cannula. The cannula is then inserted through a small incision in the skin and into fat pockets. The cannula, with the tip of the fiber exposed approximately 2 mm, is then moved in a “back and forth” fanning motion. The laser’s aiming beam can be visualized through the skin, allowing the physician to identify the treatment area. As the fiber tip comes in contact with the fat cells it ruptures the cell membranes and releases the fatty oil from the fat cells. This end product may then be aspirated from the site.
