"We are proud that Aesthera has selected LBT Lasers as their exclusive distributor in our region. The addition of Aesthera's products to our offering demonstrates our commitment to bringing only the most innovative and effective technologies to our Brazilian customers.

About Photopneumatic(TM) Technology

Photopneumatic Therapy, that powers the Isolaz(TM) and Isolaz Pro(TM) system, is a proprietary combination of pneumatic energy and broad band light. Photopneumatic devices are the only laser or light based devices cleared for the treatment of inflammatory acne, comedonal acne and pustular acne. They are also cleared for the treatment of mild to moderate inflammatory acne. Photopneumatic treatments have an immediate visible impact on acne 24 - 48 hour post first treatment and are painless. Facial treatments take approximately 10 minutes, require no anesthetics or numbing creams and provide additional cosmetic benefits such as smoother appearing skin. Additionally, Photopneumatic Therapy is also cleared for the treatment of benign vascular and pigmented lesions and hair removal.
