Sponsored Even with the proliferation of new technologies and treatments, the laser is still a frontline provider of outcomes. Among them, the SP Dynamis Pro™ dual-wavelength laser system from Fotona (based in the U.S. and Europe) remains a standout with two wavelengths (1064 nm Nd:YAG and 2940 nm Er:YAG) and unique modes of delivery. With these features, physicians can count on the platform to provide traditional therapies in difficult-to-treat areas, as well as novel applications such as hair regrowth.
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.
Sponsored Picosecond lasers have been introduced as a breakthrough technology in the aesthetic and dermatologic fields, touting many reported advantages over other systems. However, many physicians still ask: “Is the picosecond laser really better than the nanosecond laser in real-world applications?” While not everyone may agree, I use a picosecond system called PICOCARE from Wontech, Ltd., Co. (Daejeon, South Korea), and, based on my experience with both a nanosecond laser and a picosecond laser, my answer to this question is “yes”.
Following the cue of the medical arena as a whole, the medical aesthetic and dermatology fields are inexorably turning towards progressive, all-inclusive therapies. This approach combines various integrative clinical techniques that address the patient’s complete well-being, including adjunctive skincare regimens.
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.
In medical aesthetics, transdermal devices, or penetration enhancers, that use microneedles, rollers, dermoelectroporation and other novel modalities offer practitioners an efficient and minimally invasive technique to penetrate the skin barrier. But while practitioners have eagerly embraced these products and devices, few therapeutic or regulatory standards exist.
Based on attendee demand, The Aesthetic Show 2019 will offer a new, Advanced Laser Techniques and Applications symposium as part of its pre-show program on Thursday, July 11, at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas.
