Cynosure Enhances Industry-Leading Smartlipo Family with 1440 nm Wavelength
WESTFORD, Mass., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Cynosure, Inc. (Nasdaq: CYNO), a leading developer and manufacturer of a broad array of light-based aesthetic treatment systems, today announced the introduction of Smartlipo Triplex(TM), the world’s first laser lipolysis solution featuring three wavelengths that combine to deliver high-powered fat absorption and tissue tightening through tissue coagulation. Smartlipo Triplex will be formally launched at Plastic Surgery 2009, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Annual Meeting, which will be held October 23-27 in Seattle.
Smartlipo Triplex adds a 1440 nm wavelength to the MPX generation of the product, and employs Cynosure’s patented MultiPlex technology to combine the benefits of three wavelengths in one laser output. MultiPlex technology enables two wavelengths to be fired sequentially, creating a blended thermal and photomechanical effect that efficiently liquefies fat and tightens skin through collagen remodeling.
“With 20 times greater absorption in fatty tissue than any other single wavelength on the market, the 1440 nm wavelength puts Smartlipo in a new class,” said Barry DiBernardo, M.D., Medical Director of New Jersey Plastic Surgery & MedNet Technologies, Inc. in Montclair, NJ. “Combining the photomechanical effects of the 1440 nm with the 1064 nm wavelength results in even greater disruption of fatty tissue for faster and deeper treatments than the 1064 wavelength alone. At the same time, the Smartlipo Triplex continues to deliver unmatched tissue tightening through tissue coagulation by blending the 1064 and 1320 nm wavelengths.”
“We continue to advance our Smartlipo family of products to address the demands of the marketplace: faster and greater absorption of fat, high-definition body sculpting capabilities and tissue tightening through tissue coagulation,” said Cynosure President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Davin. “We believe that Smartlipo Triplex enables medical professionals to deliver the most accurate combination therapy available today by providing a superior mix of energy levels and wavelengths. Whether treating a small well-defined area or removing larger amounts of fatty tissue, Smartlipo Triplex offers doctors the ability to customize the treatment to achieve maximum results. At the same time, we believe our safety features are unmatched in the industry.”
Smartlipo Triplex is equipped with SmartSense with ThermaGuide, the latest in Cynosure’s proprietary family of intelligent energy delivery systems. SmartSense with ThermaGuide is designed to work in harmony with the laser. It continually detects the temperature under the skin and controls the output of energy. This helps to ensure that the treatment area remains within a safe and optimal temperature range for fat removal and tissue tightening through tissue coagulation.
“Smartlipo Triplex is the technology of choice for my body sculpting procedures,” said John Millard, M.D., a board-certified plastic surgeon based in Denver. “It allows for quick and efficient removal of fat without excess heat – a requirement for high-definition results.”
