Lumenis Provides Solutions to Burn Patients Through Laser Technology


The ASLMS meeting in Phoenix this weekend will showcase some new technologies, and two big studies from Lumenis will share data on their latest.

This weekend at the 30th annual meeting of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS), Lumenis will share the first clinical study which displays the speed and comfort of their new LightSheer Duet laser for hair removal and their UltraPulse Encore for treating burn scars. Lumenis is one of the leading laser manufacturers in the medical field and their CO2 lasers have helped people acheive better looking skin for years.

Last year, Lumenis received acclaim for their work with burn victims and were proud to provide a solution to the Berns triplets. The three girls were all burned badly as infants and have lived with the difficult and disfiguring scars. The Lumenis Ultrapulse laser was able to greatly improve the appearance of their scars and provide the now 22 year old triplets with a new lease on life. Dr. Jill Waibel who performed the Berns triplets' Ultrapulse treatments will present her achievements this weekend as well. Dr. Waibel was one of the first to use a deep resurfacing technique which penetrates the skin to reach the collagen below and bring about new, healthier skin growth.

One of the key scientific discussions at ASLMS will be the new Lumenis AcuPulse Aesthetic SuperPulsed CO2 platform. When combined with the UltraPulse TotalFX system, it provides a comprehensive solution for skin damage. It is now being used internationally as a treatment for both old and new burn scars. In the studies to be presented, one demonstrates the success of TotalFX on dark skinned patients, while another highlights deep dermal collagen remodeling by way of the Vectorial Pass Technique.

Also to be presented is Lumenis' LightSheer Duet which has a new, redesigned disposable insert that provides users with a faster and simplified option during hair removal treatment. The study has shown patients are more comfortable and the laser is faster than previous technologies. Furthermore, the LightSheer Duet is able to provide this service at a lower price thanks to the speed of the device.
