Cynosure's Smartlipo(TM); first and only Health Canada approved device to
TORONTO, Sept. 13 /CNW/ - The latest trend to cross the border,
LaserBodySculpting(SM) has created a whole new dimension to the Canadian
beauty industry. The revolutionary new procedure has given clinic owners and
operators an exciting and unique new treatment to offer their clients.
Smartlipo(TM) is an innovative system designed as an alternative to
traditional liposuction for patients with smaller areas of localized fat. The
system works by delivering a proprietary pulsing format of laser energy that
liquefies localized deposits of fat and then is removed through a canola. 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 and is generating significant interest
both in Canada and in the U.S.
"LaserBodySculpting is growing in popularity in Canada," said Dr. Barry
S. Lycka, MD, "in today's fast paced society, people are looking for less
invasive options which translates to less down time for cosmetic enhancements.
Smartlipo differs from traditional methods for fat removal by treating areas
of the face, neck, arms, breasts and other localized areas of unwanted fat in
a minimally invasive way. I am happy to finally be able to offer my patients
an alternative to traditional liposuctions for removing areas of unwanted fat
that is both safe and effective and also has the added benefit of tightening
Cosmetic procedures continue to increase in Canada, with a preference
toward procedures that allow clients to resume their normal lifestyle with
little down time. Smartlipo fits this trend that everyone from fashionistas,
TV personalities, post-pregnancy women and fitness buffs are already
"Based on current bookings, our Smartlipo workstation will be working
overtime for the foreseeable future," said Dr. Barry S. Lycka, MD. "Clients
are thrilled with the results and the small interruption required in their
busy schedules as a result of the rapid recovery from the procedure."
Also known as laser-assisted lipolysis, Smartlipo is the first and only
approved minimally-invasive device that quickly and safely removes stubborn
pockets of unwanted fat while tightening skin on the face, neck, arms, back,
abdomen, hips, thighs and even the knees. Recently approved by Health Canada,
the Smartlipo procedure is a physician-performed treatment that is performed
under local anesthesia in an outpatient setting and requires minimal recovery
"While relatively new to the North American market, the Smartlipo system
has been a favorite of image-conscious South Americans, Asians and Europeans
for more than eight years," said John W. Decorato, MD. FACS a General Surgeon
and Plastic Surgeon in New York City. "Thousands of patients have received
successful treatments with the Smartlipo since its U.S. launch in the fall of
Dr. Sean Rice, a Royal College certified Plastic Surgeon, recently added
the Smartlipo system to his practice. "Prior to purchasing the Smartlipo
workstation, I did my research and spoke with several U.S. doctors who have
had a very favorable reception in their practice for this procedure," says Dr.
Sean Rice, "I have already received numerous calls from potential clients
asking if I offer Smartlipo, and in fact, have several clients already lined
up for the procedure."
Smartlipo(TM) is now available in select clinics across Canada.
