SmartLipo TriPlex

You exercise, you diet, but you just cant get rid of those love handles or flabby upper arms. Well Struggle no more!


SmartLipo TriPlex is the most advanced form of Smartlipo laser technology that melts away fat cells while tightening skin via a triple wavelength form of laser technology.


It is three separate laser energy wavelengths allow for specialized body contouring, high definition laser-sculpting and skin-tightening settings, customized to the patient and areas of fat to be treated. It uses a solid state laser (Nd:YAG) that outputs radiation in 1,064nm, 1,320nm and 1,440nm wavelength, besting the 924nm and 980nm diode lasers currently on the market, for up to 40 times absorption rates of fatty tissue. The three wavelengths can be used separately or combined via MultiPlex technology.

The laser source is reliable, thanks to SmartSense™ with ThermaGuide™ technology, leading to controlled energy output. The method is also capable of high-definition sculpting, removing selected areas with fat deposits or placing fatty tissue where more is wanted to produce a chiseled appearance.



The intervention may take up to 1-3 hours, depending on how many areas are being treated. During the procedure, a small metal cannula (similar in size to a pen tip) is placed underneath the patient’s skin, after tiny incisions are made for entry to the area. The laser energy is focused through the cannula tube onto the fat cells to be eradicated, making them rupture and become liquefied. The altered fat is then removed from the body by a suction tube. Meanwhile, the laser energy in three wavelengths is used to stimulate new collagen production via tissue injury and coagulation. The laser also helps break the septa bands that are responsible for fat accumulation and dimpling under the skin.



A small amount of patients may require pain medication to manage discomfort. Minimal bleeding, bruising and recovery time means patients can resume mild forms of activity almost immediately. They can return to work in a matter of days, and resume normal activities within two weeks. Patients must wear compression garments over the treated areas during the recovery process. Because SmartLipo TriPlex only requires tiny incisions, stitches are not used. This allows for open drainage of anesthetic solution at a faster rate. Incisions should heal within 2-4 weeks and the marks will disappear between 3-12 months.
