Sponsored With a patient-friendly 585 nm wavelength and no consumables, the DenaVe diode laser by Quanta System (Milan, Italy) provides cost-effective treatment of vascular lesions and more.
Pigmentary and Vascular Disorders
While energy-based aesthetic devices are constantly evolving and improving to satisfy consumer demand for nonsurgical therapies, not all patients are able to take advantage of what seems to be the ever-expanding menu of technological advancements. Patients with darker skin types request the same energy-based solutions everyone else does, but not all of these treatments suit all Fitzpatrick skin types. Therefore, it is up to the physician to choose – and use – technology wisely.
Quanta System (Samarate, Varese, Italy) has expanded its Discovery Pico (DP) Family of lasers with the addition of the new Discovery Pico DERM. The company has announced that it will introduce this new model at the upcoming AAD 2019 meeting.
Since the introduction of the picosecond laser within the aesthetic and dermatologic markets, it has become widely recognized as the safest and most effective solution for pigmented lesions and tattoo removal. Now, the PICOCARE Nd:YAG laser, developed and manufactured by Wontech, Ltd., Co. (Daejeon, South Korea), has expanded the scope of picosecond technology to treat various types of scars, skin rejuvenation and nail disorders via a variety of handpieces (595 nm and 660 nm dye handpieces and HEXA MLA).
Since its inception in 1997, Lutronic Global (Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.), has been striving to facilitate the goals of its physician partners who labor to deliver exceptional outcomes to their patients. Lutronic’s focus on developing smarter energy-based medical technologies that benefit physicians and patients worldwide has been unwavering. Beginning with FDA approval for its Spectra-VRM device in 2000, and now featuring frontline technologies such as PicoPlus, eCO2 and LaseMD, among others, Lutronic has become a global leader in the aesthetic space.
Candela Corporation (Irvine, California, U.S.) has been at the forefront of the aesthetic industry in one form or another for decades. Originally centered primarily around the laser market, as its Candela moniker suggests, the company experienced an exponential leap forward in technology and presence when it merged with Syneron Medical, Ltd. in 2010. Now, with the recent acquisition of Ellipse (Hørsholm, Denmark), the company has additionally expanded and deepened its portfolio of top energy-based medical devices.
Fractional Photothermolysis (FP) has been used to treat a number of indications, primarily skin resurfacing and scar treatments. Ablative lasers, such as carbon dioxide, are widely used in the medical aesthetic field, however, due to the longer downtime, higher risk of thermal injury and adverse effects associated with ablative lasers, non-ablative lasers are used as an alternative.

For benign pigmented lesions, such as solar lentigines, the Discovery Pico and Pico Plus by Quanta System (Milan, Italy) facilitate gentle treatments with stable energy delivery. These factors provide predictable results while reducing the risk of
post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).
Picosecond lasers are not only effective for pigmentation and tattoos, but also for scars and skin rejuvenation, creating innovative trends in dermatology. And while there are a number of picosecond lasers available, Adrian Lim, M.D., one of Australia’s leading dermatological experts, has chosen PICOCARE from Wontech (Daejeon, Korea) because of its superior engineering and clinical performance.
The subtly profound outcomes achieved with Clear + Brilliant (C+B) from Solta Medical, a division of Bausch Health Companies, Inc. (Bothell, Wash.), are a testament to the versatility and wide appeal of this multi-wavelength laser system. Among its many benefits and uses as a preventative therapy, it can usher in a younger patient base, exposing them to the offerings and capabilities of your practice, and allowing the natural allure of successful outcomes to drive new business.
