The addition of the 1440nm wavelength in the SmartLipo Triplex has created a significant advancement in fat melting technology over the prior generation SmartLipo MPX.
• FDA approved, cutting edge technique.
• Reduce more unwanted fat in a single treatment.
• Stimulate collagen growth for improved skin elasticity.
• Smoother, more sculpted results.
• Shorter recovery time.
Technical Specs of SmartLipo
The addition of the 1440nm wavelength in the SmartLipo Triplex has created a significant advancement in fat-melting technology over the prior generation SmartLipo MPX. SmartLipo Triplex also comes equipped with Thermaguide™ technology, which ensures that tissue temperatures remain in a safe range, which significantly reduces the risk of burns when compared to older generations of SmartLipo.
The Omaha SmartLipo Difference
SmartLipo (laser liposuction) is a laser-based liposuction procedure to melt and remove fat cells safely and rapidly. Only a highly-skilled, trained physician should perform this cosmetic surgery procedure.
At Imagen, we only use the most advanced technology. The SmartLipo Triplex with Thermoguard laser system reduces the possibility of injury if the laser temperature goes too high.
SmartLipo procedure is an outpatient procedure performed in as little as two to four hours.
The procedure starts with the injection of a solution to numb the treatment area with a combination of lidocaine (a numbing agent) and epinephrine (a blood vessel constrictor to reduce bleeding). The surgeon then uses a cannula which is a tube to evenly distribute the solution for better results. The cannula is equipped with a powerful variable wavelength laser beam used to liquefy and extract fat from the targeted areas. This laser has three specific wavelengths that enable our expert surgeons to both melt the excess fat, sculpt the space between the muscle and the skin during the procedure.
SmartLipo cosmetic surgery promotes collagen production after the fat cell removal procedure to produce better final results. SmartLipo is the preferred method to do some skin-tightening procedures around many body parts.
SmartLipo vs traditional liposuction
Traditional liposuction used to be a sizeable invasive procedure using a large cannula with powerful but imprecise suction. To minimize discomfort, it usually required general anesthesia and expensive hospitalization.
Laser Lipo uses a combination of advanced technologies, namely efficient local anesthetics, proven blood vessel constrictors, and variable-length laser wands, to perform the surgery quicker, safer with longer-lasting results. In the same procedure, a cosmetic or plastic surgeon can also do body sculpting, body contour in different body areas. Thus, the name SmartLipo.
Laser Lipolysis works by inserting an advanced microcannula through a small incision below the skin to access fat deposits. The precise instrument is less bruising to the surrounding tissue as it can easily access fat pearls and allows for a shortened recovery time.
The cannula serves two purposes: 1) it liquefies the fat deposit by heat produced by laser energy 2) it acts as an extraction point for the fat removal. The SmartLipo laser fiber helps to seal off blood vessels, decreasing bleeding, bruising, and post-operative swelling.
Following surgery, the laser-treated area will accelerate collagen production while eliminating the dead body cells. The new collagen causes the skin to appear tighter and reduces dimpling.
