How Does the Smartlipo MPX System Improve on What Was Already Available with Smartlipo?

As a National Instructor in Smart lipo, I will clear up your understanding about the technology. The initial Smart lipo units had a wavelength of 1064 ONLY and a power setting from 6, 10, 12, 18, 20 watts for a 110 outlet. I called these units the "hair dryer additions", they could be used in any electric outlet. So, very weak energy delivery at a very slow rate. The MPX platform revolutionized the power and wavelengths available plus it needed a 220 outlet for power source. The MPX meant "multi phasic" or 2 wavelengths, 1064 (good for bleeding, some skin tightening, some fat melting), and a new wave length 1320 (very good for skin tightening). Plus the watts increased to 30 and 35 watts. A very faster delivery system and more energy gives better results. Down side higher temperatures causes skin burns so the temp monitor was added.  Now about a year ago the "TRIPLEX" system became available. Three wavelengths; 1064, 1320, and now 1440 (just a fat melting wavelength), plus the watts increased to 40 watts. This is a WOW! unit. So yes the advances in the technology allow faster and better results. Hope that helps. Regards. 

The Triplex offers more energy and better results

As in most areas of our lives, advanced technology yields better results. With the Triplex system

we can deliver more wavelengths at greater energy. this means more fat is melted and greater skin tightening.

MPX is better than simple smart lipo but the gold standard is triplex with has three wavelengths that results in better results and faster procedure time

Smartlipo MPX vs other forms of Lipo: Select the Surgeon NOT the tool

Smartlipo MultiPlexTM (MPX) mode uses both 1064 and 1320 nm wavelenghts whereas the original Smartlipo just used 1064 nm. The Smartlipo MPX laser first uses the 1064 nm wavelength  energy which is  distributed into the fat (adipose) tissue. It then  fires the 1320 nm wavelength, to coagulate  surrounding small blood vessels to minimize bruising/bleeding.  The Smartlipo MPX delivers up to 46 watts of power in the blended mode which is more powerful than the first Smartlipo model. I personally feel that despite the above data that is not particularly more effective than other forms of liposuction and has been associated with many reported complications. In short it more important to select the best possible plastic surgeon with the most experience rather than the specific tool he/she will be using.

SmartLipo MPX was a significant advance in SmartLipo technology, as it increased power, blended wavelengths, and was more versatile.  It also incorporated temperature sensing to make the procedure safer.

The Evolution Of Smartlipo Technology

The fundamental difference is that newer systems of Smartlipo have increased power levels and different blends of wavelengths. The Smartlipo MPX system was an improvement over the original systems with up to 30W of power with blended wavelengths. That made for more effective and faster fat removal times.

The MPX has 3 different laser combination for deep fat and superficial fat. The other advantage is the temperature sensor to prevent tissue damage.
