WESTFORD, Mass., Cynosure, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of a broad array of light-based aesthetic treatment systems, today announced the launch of a new, higher power Smartlipo LaserBodySculpting (SM) Workstation. The new 10-watt workstation is intended for high-volume aesthetic laser practices, allowing a physician to complete a typical laser-assisted liposuction procedure in about half the time as the original 6-watt workstation.
"Cynosure's new 10-watt Smartlipo workstation allows me to treat patients quickly and efficiently, with the same level of safety and efficacy as the 6- watt system," said Bruce Katz, M.D., founder of New York's Juva Skin & Laser Center. "For example, an area of localized fat under the chin can be treated in about eight minutes with the 10-watt Smartlipo system, compared with about 15 minutes with the 6-watt workstation."
Introduced by Cynosure in January, the minimally invasive Smartlipo workstation is an innovative system designed as an alternative to traditional liposuction in patients with smaller areas of localized fat. The system's proprietary pulsing format delivers laser energy that liquefies localized deposits of fat that is then removed through a cannula.
In addition the laser energy coagulates the tissue, thereby sculpting body contours and tightening the skin. The procedure generally causes less bleeding, swelling and bruising than traditional liposuction, resulting in fewer complications and faster recovery. Cynosure received U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance to market Smartlipo in the fourth quarter of 2006.
According to cosmetic surgeon Robert Gotkin, M.D., co-director of Cosmetique in New York, "The introduction of its new, higher power Smartlipo reflects Cynosure's commitment to advance its customers' practices with innovative products designed for patient efficiency."
