New York, NY (PRWEB) May 13, 2008
Dr. Bruce Katz, founder and medical director of JUVA Skin & Laser Center, has been selected as the first dermatologist to implement the Smartlipo MPX, the newest generation of laser liposuction. Smartlipo MPX is the only FDA cleared, dual-wavelength laser system designed to effectively liquefy fat and tighten skin through collagen remodeling. The innovative MultiPlex technology combines the 1064 nanometer and 1320 nanometer in one laser output, blending the workstation's two wavelengths for optimal fat liquefaction and skin tightening results.
Dr. Katz recently led a clinical study on the Smartlipo MPX that will be published in a peer reviewed journal shortly. Small tattoos were strategically placed on patients to measure the skin tightening effects of the Smartlipo MPX. Dr. Katz made a tiny incision in the patients' skin, while threading the dual wavelength (1320 nanometer and 1064 nanometer) laser under the skin to remove fat under the tattooed area. Dr. Katz discovered new collagen growth on the biopsies taken from the patients and further results show a 20% skin tightening improvement in the areas surrounding the tattoos.
According to Dr. Katz, "Smartlipo MPX Laser is much faster and powerful than the last generation of Smartlipo. The dual wavelength technology precisely targets larger areas on the body, causes less bleeding, swelling and bruising, and dramatically tightens skin around the treated area."
Smartlipo MPX reduces treatment time because it enables doctors to target larger surface areas than ever before, and can be used all over the body, around the abdomen, face, jowls, neck, arms and thighs. Smartlipo MPX is less invasive, safer and more effective than traditional liposuction treatments.
