CoolTouch Inc. has announced the introduction of their new CoolBlue Duet laser lipolysis suction handpiece set designed specifically to be used with the CoolLipo 1320 laser system.
Using a standard liposuction cannula, ablation with aspiration and skin tightening are accomplished all in one action, which dramatically reduces the time of the laser lipolysis procedure.
"The CoolBlue Duet suction handpiece doubles the speed of laser lipolysis and liposuction with better results and increased patient satisfaction," states Robert Weiss, MD, FACPh, Associate Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
FDA cleared for laser-assisted lipolysis and general dermatological surgery, the CoolLipo 1320 laser procedure improves the outcome of conventional liposuction in small areas such as the neck, chin and arms and now is fast enough to be effectively used on larger areas such as the abdomen and thighs. The excellent tissue absorption properties of the 1320 nm wavelength tighten the skin by directly targeting collagen and connective tissue. The CoolLipo procedure is performed in a physician's office under local anesthesia. Patient benefits include minimal, if any bruising, and less recovery time and cost than a face or neck lift.
David R. Hennings, CoolTouch CEO states, "CoolTouch continues to be the innovation leader in laser lipolysis. The Duet Handpiece is FDA cleared (K933017) and was described in our patent application published in June of 2007. CoolTouch and co-inventor Dr. Mitchel Goldman of La Jolla, CA have filed additional patent continuations with the most recent improvements."
Dr. Weiss finds the CoolLipo 1320 wavelength provides excellent skin tightening and fat contouring ability not seen with traditional liposuction alone. "CoolLipo technology provides smoother results than with traditional lipoaspiration alone and makes these procedures significantly easier for both the patient and physician," states Dr. Weiss.
