ROSEVILLE, Calif., April 18 CoolTouch Inc., a pioneeringmanufacturer of medical lasers, announced today the introduction of their newCoolBlue Duet(TM) laser lipolysis suction handpiece set designed specificallyto be used with the CoolLipo(TM) 1320 laser system. Using a standardliposuction cannula, ablation with aspiration and skin tightening areaccomplished all in one action, which dramatically reduces the time of thelaser lipolysis procedure.
"The CoolBlue Duet suction handpiece doubles the speed of laser lipolysisand liposuction with better results and increased patient satisfaction,"states Robert Weiss, MD, FACPh, Associate Clinical Professor of Dermatology atJohns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
FDA cleared for laser-assisted lipolysis and general dermatologicalsurgery, the CoolLipo 1320 laser procedure improves the outcome ofconventional liposuction in small areas such as the neck, chin and arms andnow is fast enough to be effectively used on larger areas such as the abdomenand thighs. The excellent tissue absorption properties of the 1320 nmwavelength tighten the skin by directly targeting collagen and connectivetissue. The CoolLipo procedure is performed in a physician's office underlocal anesthesia. Patient benefits include minimal, if any bruising, and lessrecovery time and cost than a face or neck lift.
David R. Hennings, CoolTouch CEO states, "CoolTouch continues to be theinnovation leader in laser lipolysis. The Duet Handpiece is FDA cleared(K933017) and was described in our patent application published in June of2007. CoolTouch and co-inventor Dr. Mitchel Goldman of La Jolla, CA havefiled additional patent continuations with the most recent improvements."
Dr. Weiss finds the CoolLipo 1320 wavelength provides excellent skintightening and fat contouring ability not seen with traditional liposuctionalone. "CoolLipo technology provides smoother results than with traditionallipoaspiration alone and makes these procedures significantly easier for boththe patient and physician," states Dr. Weiss.
