Next Generation Fat Grafting and Liposuction
BeautiFillTM is the first laser-based fat transfer technology to standardize the process, time and quality of fat transfer methods with the least amount of adipose disruption. BeautiFill’s closed-loop fat transfer capabilities combine laser, aspiration and processing into one simple step. This reduces procedure time while optimizing the entire fat transfer process. High vitality fat collection permits successful, immediate fat grafting with years of longevity potential. Simultaneous lasing and suctioning simplifies the procedure and significantly reduces treatment time. Thermal energy and a unique radial emission fiber allows for effective, homogenous skin tightening.
The complete solution for optimal body contouring
One of the novel features of BeautiFill is its proprietary radial tip fiber encased in a blunt Mercedes cannula. This design allows for a 360˚ radial emission of low-power density, which targets water and selectively creates a thermal environment that softens and detaches the fat for effortless separation during simultaneous aspiration. In a controlled study, BeautiFill results indicated greater cell viability, along with heightened fat quality over mechanical liposuction. Contrary to popular belief, a fat transfer procedure takes far less time than traditional liposuction because it requires far less volume. Doing fat transfer right doesn’t require greater fat quantity — it requires better fat quality.
“The next generation LipoLife system by Alma has been a breakthrough for my clinic’s liposuction routine. Simultaneous lasing and suction significantly cuts treatment time and makes performing procedures far less physically demanding. The system is compact while offering all of equipment and accessories we need, saving us space without sacrificing convenience.” Dr. Alex Levenberg, Plastic Surgeon Sourasky Medical Center.
On-the-Spot Fat Grafting
Complete and natural aesthetic contouring solution with high fat viability
Autologous fat transfer for soft tissue contouring has become increasingly popular in recent years, setting a trend in the industry. Fat has taken on a greater role in body sculpting, particularly for breast and buttock augmentation and as a natural filler for facial rejuvenation. The immediate availability of patient’s own fat, its natural integration into host tissues and its long lasting correction potential makes it a highly favorable application as it addresses patients’ desire to restore volume loss and see longer-lasting results. BeautiFill achieves a fat vitality rate greater than 95%1 allowing optimal utilization of the preserved fat as a perfect alternative to synthetic materials. The procedure is quick and convenient with a fully equipped kit, allowing you to easily restore patient tissue volume. Generally the effects of fat injection can last indefinitely, making it extremely appealing to patients looking for natural contouring procedure delivering surgical results with no surgery. Autologous fat transfer may be particularly beneficial for patients who are allergic or sensitive to fillers such as collagen or Hylaform. With BeautiFill, autologous fat transfer is simple, safe, inexpensive and effective.
Simultaneous Lasing and Suction
LipoLife features an integrated cannula and fiber interface which allows for simultaneous lasing and suction. This unique interface allows physicians to pass through the tissue more easily and remove fat cells quickly and efficiently. As laser energy is delivered to the tissue, the laser cauterizes blood vessels rather than causing them to rupture as with mechanical liposuction. This minimizes bleeding, swelling and body trauma such as hematomas, edema and bruising as well as minimizing postoperative pain. Simultaneous lasing and suction creates a one-step process which significantly reduces the amount of physical effort required to perform liposuction procedures, especially in cases with fibrous tissue such as Gynecomastia. The mechanism simplifies the procedure, reduces total treatment time compared to other energy-based techniques, prevents operator fatigue allowing more treatments to be performed per day and achieves optimal clinical results with reduced patient downtime.
Infiltration and suction system
The ultra-quiet, powerful aspiration system features three pumps for high powered operation: a peristaltic pump for infiltration of tumescent anesthetic mixtures and two aspiration pumps for fat suctioning. Simultaneous Lasing and Suction LipoLife features the unique AngelTM radial emission fiber integrated into a Mercedes perforated-tip cannula which emits energy in a 360° pattern. Radial emission lasing is a low-power density approach with multiple benefits: Minimizes the risk of burns Distributes energy evenly throughout the treatment area Removes fat cells quickly and covers greater tissue area, allowing for fast treatment The fiber’s radial emission pattern allows safe, homogenous and more efficient skin tightening during the procedure

Alma’s New Canister for Easy Fat Harvesting and Filtration
The newly launched canister allows efficient filtering out blood and tumescent during the liposuction treatment and enables easy fat intake in close or open system for an immediate injection of the fat after the liposuction procedure.
LipoLife uses the 1470 nm wavelength which specifically targets water in soft tissue and features a higher absorption rate than all other competing devices. This allows for optimal fat removal with minimal tissue damage. Laser energy is delivered at a low power density for maximum safety, minimizing the risk of burns.
Skin Tightening Benefits
In addition to achieving effective lipolysis, the thermal energy generated by the 1470 nm diode laser contracts existing collagen and elastin fibers and stimulates the formation of new collagen for firmer, tighter-looking skin. This is particularly important for delicate areas such as the face and neck as well as for areas of cellulite. In effect, LipoLife targets cellulite precisely at its source within the underlying structural tissue. Laser energy is directed beneath the skin, separating the skin from adipose tissue, effectively breaking up pockets of cellulite and restructuring the skin for a smoother appearance.
Areas of Treatment
All areas of the body can be effectively treated with LipoLife. These include areas that are not easily accessible using conventional liposuction such as the chin, face and neck as well as larger areas with extensive fat deposits. In addition, LipoLife simplifies specialized treatments such as fibrous Gynecomastia.
LipoSense Temperature Control
LipoLife features a closed loop, temperature-sensing cannula that continuously monitors subdermal temperatures during laser-assisted lipolysis, body contouring and small area procedures. Laser energy is delivered to the tissue until the target temperature is reached, achieving precise, uniform treatment. Intuitive software allows you to define a maximum temperature limit for the procedure. If subdermal temperature exceeds the limit, the system will automatically stop, preventing thermal tissue damage. LipoSenseTM temperature control enables you to perform precise body contouring with greater efficiency and safer results.
Tightening LipoTight Cannula
In addition to the skin tightening benefits of LipoLife’s laser-assisted liposuction procedure, LipoLife also offers a dedicated tightening cannula with a flat multi-use laser fiber, designed exclusively for office skin tightening procedure of the sub-mental area and the neck. Laser energy is delivered directly underneath the skin above the hypodermis to treat areas of skin laxity submental area such as nasolabial folds, jowls and neck. The skin tightening cannula may also be used for post-facelift touchups including addressing any asymmetry or loose skin.
