  2. 2. What is CoolLipo? <ul><li>A laser procedure that destroys small areas of fat and tightens skin. </li></ul><ul><li>CoolLipo uses a special type of invisible light (near infrared) that destroys fat cells and heats the collagen in the skin to tighten and improve appearance. </li></ul><ul><li>CoolLipo is a minimally invasive, fast recovery procedure providing quick results. </li></ul><ul><li>CoolLipo can also be used in conjunction with conventional liposuction to improve results. </li></ul>
  3. 3. CoolLipo by CoolTouch Inc. <ul><li>Specific FDA clearance for Laser-assisted Lipolysis 510(k) # 072751 as of Jan. 2, 2008 </li></ul><ul><li>CoolLipo FDA clearance for General Dermatological Surgery 510(k) # 023962 </li></ul><ul><li>1320 nm Nd:YAG laser </li></ul><ul><li>Short pulse length achieves a photoacoustic effect at the tip of a special coated fiber </li></ul>
  4. 4. Light Absorption in Tissue 1 µm 10 µm 100 µm 1 mm 10 mm 100 mm 1 m 10 m 100 m 0.1 0.5 1 2 3 0.4 0.3 0.2 1064 Nd:YAG Water Wavelength Hemoglobin Melanin <ul><li>1064 nm is poorly absorbed in water </li></ul><ul><li>Melanin and hemoglobin are dominant chromophores </li></ul>
  5. 5. Light Absorption in Tissue 1 µm 10 µm 100 µm 1 mm 10 mm 100 mm 1 m 10 m 100 m 0.1 0.5 1 2 3 0.4 0.3 0.2 1064 Nd:YAG Water Wavelength Hemoglobin Melanin 1320 nm Nd:YAG 1320 nm is uniformly absorbed in water with little effect on melanin or hemoglobin
  6. 6. Absorption: Tissue vs. Fat 1064 1320
  7. 7. Photoacoustic Ablation <ul><li>Proprietary coated fiber requires “initiation” with carbon char which absorbs laser energy </li></ul><ul><li>Pulsed energy creates a white hot acoustic ablation (pulsed 1320 nm and 1064 nm mechanically ablate similarly) </li></ul><ul><li>Ablation occurs at low fluences with minimal collateral damage </li></ul><ul><li>Fat is liquefied by the photoacoustic waves without extensive thermal effects </li></ul>
  8. 8. Photoacoustic Ablation Laser energy heats fiber coating to form carbon Carbon on tip absorbs laser energy creating a white hot ablation point Pulsed energy ablates a zone of tissue with minimal thermal damage
  9. 9. Patient Questions <ul><li>How long does the procedure take? </li></ul><ul><li>About an hour for the neck and chin area. </li></ul><ul><li>Will I be awake? </li></ul><ul><li>Yes, CoolLipo can be performed in your doctor’s office. An oral sedative may be given. </li></ul><ul><li>Does it hurt? </li></ul><ul><li>No, the area treated with CoolLipo will have an anesthetic solution injected before the laser is used. </li></ul><ul><li>What will I look like after the procedure? </li></ul><ul><li>The treated area is wrapped with a compression bandage, your doctor will recommend how long you are to wear the dressing. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Patient Questions <ul><li>What does the treated area look like? </li></ul><ul><li>There might be some swelling for a few days and occasionally bruising. Also, it might be tender for several days. </li></ul><ul><li>Will I be off work for a long time? </li></ul><ul><li>No, you can return to work the same day. Ask your doctor. </li></ul><ul><li>How soon will CoolLipo show results? </li></ul><ul><li>CoolLipo will show results within a week after the procedure with continued improvement up to 2-6 months. </li></ul><ul><li>How many treatments will I need? </li></ul><ul><li>Usually only one is needed. </li></ul>
