MicroAire's PAL® Power-Assisted Liposuction System is designed for small- or large-volume fat extraction, body contouring and fat harvesting.
PAL® Power-Assisted Liposuction System
PAL® is the most widely used and preferred alternative to manual liposuction.1
- Proven Cell Viability 2,3,4
- Less Bruising and Swelling 5
- Reduced Surgeon Fatigue 5
- Faster Procedure and Patient Recovery 5
Small variations in the number of ports, as well as their size and location on the cannula, can have a significant impact on performance and outcomes. MicroAire has developed several port configurations based on clinical studies and surgeon feedback.
- Extraction – Popular for large-volume debulking and body contouring.
- Harvesting – Well-suited for producing consistent lobules for fat grafting.
- Specialty – PAL® reciprocation provides cannulas uses that go beyond liposuction.
LipoFilter® Fat Processing System
The LipoFilter® uses a gravity-decanting system to separate fluids from adipose tissue. Live fat cells behave much like floating balloons that rise naturally and quickly to the top; while the damaged, emulsified cells behave like leaking balloons that remain trapped in the solution for a longer time and rise slowly, if at all.
- Three-liter fat harvesting and separation system
- Large-volume decanting and washing
- No centrifuge needed
- Works with any lipo system
- Sterile-packed, single-use
The LipoTower features strong, reliable pumps for both infiltration and aspiration, a touchscreen interface, an integrated PAL control system, smooth-rolling casters so it can be easily moved from room to room, and best of all: it is UL®-listed, which means it has been vigorously tested by an approved agency to meet strict rules for electronic devices.
- Adjustable 50 – 700ml/min infiltration pump
- Footswitch or manually operated
- Single-hand adjustable IV pole
- Powerful and quiet aspiration pump with a high flow rate of 4.2 SCFM
- Adjustable vacuum pressure, up to 29 inHg
- Works with any handpiece, and is also integrated for use with PAL
- Aspiration on/off controlled by PAL handpiece, footswitch or console
- Strong, dual-1/3HP pumps
The EpiCut is an ergonomic handle featuring a v-shaped blade intended to remove strips of epithelial tissue. The curve of the blade helps control the depth of the strips so vascularity of the dermis is not compromised.
