Services - Prolipo Plus
ProLipo PLUS employs dual wavelength capability (1064 nm and 1319 nm), providing the choice to use each wavelength individually or to combine the benefits of both for optimal body sculpting results.
With up to 40 watts of power on 1064 nm and up to 40 watts on 1319 nm, the system provides flexibility in tailoring rapid, advanced treatments.
A wide range of customizable treatment parameters enables body sculpting treatments that are personalized for each patient.
ProLipo PLUS is FDA cleared for laser-assisted lipolysis. It is often times used for treatment in patients that require finessed sculpting in difficult areas such as medial thighs, upper abdomen, periumbilical, submental area, and upper arms. These places have traditionally been troublesome for physicians and traditional liposuction, now they can be expertly addressed. ProLipo PLUS is also utilized as an adjunct to traditional liposuction as an efficient method for fat removal and produces observable improvement in skin laxity.
The following array of body areas can effectively be contoured using ProLipo PLUS:

Science & Technology
With 40 watts of power at 1064 nm and 40 watts at 1319 nm, ProLipo PLUS effectively liquefies unwanted fat and coagulates tissue resulting in a tighter, slimmer body.
Sciton’s ProLipo PLUS combines 1064 nm and 1319 nm wavelengths in one laser for optimal body sculpting results. The 1064 nm wavelength is chosen for constructing the fat channels and preparing the fat for lipolysis by breaking up the more vascular superficial fat. It is absorbed by oxyhemoglobin for better hemostasis and also generates thermal heating. The fat cell is ruptured and tumefaction takes place. It is an efficient wavelength for lipolysis.
The 1319 nm wavelength is used for its high absorption in water and its lower scattering in fat, so the majority of its thermal energy can be confined to the area just beyond the tip of the fiber.
It is used to preferentially damage collagen in fibrous septae. This is the precursor to tissue retraction and observable improvement in skin laxity.
Sciton’s OptiPlex technology delivers individual, combined, or sequential pulses from multiple wavelengths so that each wavelength can be used alone or the benefits of all wavelengths can be combined at once.
