Alma Lasers Inc announces the North American debut of BeautiFill, reportedly the first laser-based system designed to optimize the process, time and quality of autologous fat transfer for complete aesthetic contouring.
BeautiFill combines laser, suction and fat processing into one simple step, allowing physicians to quickly harvest and process high-quality fat for immediate reimplantation to address volume loss.
The device will officially debut at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology, which will take place March 1 to 5 in Washington, DC.
Autologous fat transfer is the next frontier in aesthetic medicine, according to the company, in a news release.
“Losing volume is a natural part of the aging process, but the options to satisfy larger quantities of volume loss have been limited and cost-prohibitive for patients,” says Daniel Friedmann, MD, FAAD, a board-certified dermatologist at Westlake Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery in Austin, Tex.
“BeautiFill is more than just a complete system for autologous fat transfer, it’s a comprehensive solution,” he adds in the release. “With BeautiFill we now can achieve consistency in high fat viability, and together with Alma’s investment in training, providers can expect to maximize the longevity of their fat transfer results.”
BeautiFill features a proprietary conical tip laser fiber encased in a protective glass sheath. This design diffuses the power density to protect the adipose and further allows the energy to be distributed in a 360-degree radius for efficient detachment of fat for simultaneous aspiration.
In a controlled study, the adipose tissue from BeautiFill consistently achieved high fat cell viability in the high 90s and 40% more injectable fat over mechanical liposuction, the release suggests.
“The launch of BeautiFill addresses two demands in our market — an alternative method to achieve fat reduction for body contouring and an all-in-one solution for fat transfer,” says Avi Farbstein, CEO of Alma Lasers, North America, in the release. “BeautiFill offers physicians the opportunity to be on the cutting edge of aesthetic medicine and for some, a new procedure and revenue stream for their practice.”
