Lille, France based Osyris Medical has announced FDA 510(k) clearance of its LipoControl system for lipolysis. The LipoControl system uses a 980nm laser to break down fat deposits. Using magnetic tracking, the LipoControl can also provide real-time imaging of the target area, and can compensate for movement.
Some features from the product page:
•Real-time visualization of the area to be treated on the screen, thanks to its tracking system, by magnetic field
•Automatic adjustment of laser power to compensate the movement of cannula
•Laser power increased as speed of cannula increases, decreases as cannula slows down
•Laser power shuts off whenever the cannula stops moving over treated area
•On-screen energy mapping which shows distribution energy in real-time for optimization of results. The visualization allows an homogenous distribution and avoid over treated areas.
We can’t help but note that the CGI model female above would probably not need this procedure.
