-- PacificLipo advanced liposculpture technology works well in areas that have been treated previously with traditional liposuction because it is able to get by those areas of fibrous internal scarring. It also works great in gynecomastia and in areas where we may have been more reticent to treat previously with liposuction because the cannulas were larger, such as the lower legs and ankles. One disadvantage of liposuction procedures performed with ultrasound assisted technologies is the cannulas becoming hot.
When the ultrasound is applied, a lot of heat is generated in the cannulas. Therefore, the skin needs to be protected from burns. The technology is larger with ultrasound, and the size of the incision can range up to 10 mm, whereas with PacificLipo you can literally make a 2 mm incision with a needle. You don’t even have to use a scalpel. The fiber optic cable that carries the laser beam is 300microns in diameter, carried through a very tiny introducer. The metal introducer does not become hot, so you don’t have to worry about protecting the skin from heat and therefore is much easier to use. Because bleeding is less with PacificLipo, the bruising is reduced and the recovery seems to be more comfort-able for the patients. Additionally, PacificLipo can often be used superficially on the under-surface of the skin to break up the bands that cause cellulite and cause production of new collagen, which leads to better skin tightening and skin contraction. In most areas of the body, PacificLipo will be better than traditional liposuction because it causes less bruising, much less swelling and less pain. Furthermore, because the Nd:YAG laser reacts to the skin, there will be some skin tightening. How much would depend on the individual patient and how close the laser comes to the skin. PacificLipo has seen excellent results in the area under the chin and jowl. The laser is also works perfect for treating in front of the armpit; this applies to a fold of skin detectable while wearing an evening dress. PacificLipo uses a tiny instrument that is inserted in the body, which melts the fat cells. It seems less traumatic to the tissue.
