Dr. Thomas E. Young of Young Medical Spa adds SlimLipo™ to his Impressive Menu of Services.

Thomas E. Young, MD of Young Medical Spa located in Center Valley, PA has been chosen by Palomar Medical Technologies, Inc. to be a National Trainer of physicians for their new Selective Laser Induced Melting (SLIM™) Procedure and SlimLipo™ body sculpting laser.

Dr. Young has performed SmartLipo™ Laser Body Sculpting since shortly after the device’s FDA approval and also performs VASER® Lipo, MicroAire Power Assisted Lipoplasty (PAL®), and non-invasive VelaShape™. Dr. Young states his decision to add Palomar’s SlimLipo™ to his armamentarium of body sculpting tools was primarily influenced by SlimLipo’s unique blended wavelengths which results in "faster fat melting time, shorter procedure length, and less trauma to underlying tissues".

Culminating 6 years of research into the ideal wavelength for liquefying and melting fat, the Palomar SlimLipo™ laser-assisted lipolysis device quickly and effectively liquefies fat in a minimally-invasive procedure. SlimLipo's unique technology simultaneously blends 920nm and 975nm wavelengths for preferential absorption by fat and dermal tissue, respectively, resulting in tightening of the skin over the next few months. Single-use, interchangeable treatment tips and continuous wave photothermal technology provide superior control of thermal effects for optimal treatments. The SlimLipo™ laser operates on the new Aspire™ platform which provides opportunities for even more advanced treatment modalities.
