SLIMLIPO™ LIPOSUCTION-Selective Laser Induced Melting of Fat

Liposuction is the most common plastic surgery procedure done in the United States.

Palomar™ Medical has just introduced SLIMLIPO™ a new laser liposuction technology which will revolutionize the way liposuction is done. The word SLIM™ stands for Selective Laser Induced Melting and what is new is the laser wavelength-925 and 925/975 nm- which selectively melts fat-5 times more than SmartLipo™and 3 times more than the 1320nm laser used in the CoolLipo™ device.


In some patients with smaller fat deposits we can melt the fat with the tiny SLIMLIPO™ laser fiber and use no suction to remove the dissolved fat. This means less bruising, less trauma, and quick recovery.

New laser liposuction technology is revolutionizing the way liposuction and laser body sculpting is done.

Benefits of the new laser liposuction technique are:

· The laser selectively dissolves fat unlike standard liposuction which can destroy all tissues.

· The laser closes blood vessels=less bleeding, less bruising

· The laser tightens skin=less loose skin after liposuction

· Laser liposuction is less traumatic=quicker recovery

· The laser fiber is tiny= smaller scars

· Smaller areas done under local anesthesia

How SlimLipo effects the fat cells below:


All laser liposuction machines are not equal. You need to understand the importance of the laser wavelength used to melt fat. Most laser liposuction machines on the market today use a 1064nm or 1320nm laser wavelength. Actually the best wavelength which is most highly absorbed by fat is 925nm, a wavelength patented and owned by Palomar™ Medical in Burlington, Massachusetts.

Palomar has introduced the SLIMLIPO™ Aspire™ Liposuction Unit which is the first 925nm based laser liposuction and is 5 times as selectively absorbed by fat as the 1064nm lasers and 3 times more than the 1320nm-the other commercially available laser liposuction technology. It is also 5 times as selectively absorbed by blood. This means that the SLIMLIPO™ Aspire™ laser liposuction unit dissolves fat and prevents bleeding much more effectively than any other laser liposuction machine available. See the figure below for comparison of the fat melting selectivity of the various laser liposuction units available today-remember, Palomar’s new SLIMLIPO uses the 920nm laser:

For you the patient this translates into:

· Gentler more thorough fat removal

· Less bleeding, less bruising

· Quicker recovery

We also can blend in a 975nm laser wavelength with the Aspire™ which is highly absorbed by the Dermis-the deep layer of your skin which controls skin tightening. For you this translates into:

· Tighter skin after liposuction

· Less risk of revisional surgery after liposuction

I am proud to say that we helped Palomar™ develop this revolutionary new laser and are the first to offer SLIMLIPO™ with the Aspire™ laser liposuction unit in Massachusetts and the Boston area and one of the first practices in the world to have this machine.

If you are considering laser liposuction you really need to know the facts and understand the technology. Once you do the advantages of SLIMLIPO with the Aspire™ system are obvious-there is nothing else like it on the market.
