Affirm Er -- Ablative Skin Resurfacing with Minimal Downtime
Cynosure's new Affirm Er is a 2940 nm wavelength, Erbium: YAG laser for ablative skin resurfacing applications, such as the treatment of deep lines and wrinkles. The Affirm Er handpiece is designed as a complementary fourth wavelength for the Affirm Anti-Aging workstation, Cynosure's award-winning platform for anti-aging applications such as skin rejuvenation, wrinkles, skin discoloration and tissue tightening.
"With the introduction of Affirm Er, we are responding to growing demand for an ablative technology that best addresses the treatment of deep lines and wrinkles," Davin said. "Since its introduction a year ago, our innovative Affirm workstation has been enthusiastically received by the marketplace, both in the U.S. and overseas. By adding the Erbium wavelength, we are further increasing the versatility, flexibility and cost-effectiveness of Affirm for our customers."
Bruce E. Katz, M.D., director of the Juva Skin & Laser Center, said, "For our patients, the Affirm system has been extremely effective in the treatment of wrinkles and scars, while tightening the underlying tissue. Some patients want a more rapid therapy for deep lines and wrinkles. The addition of this ablative component expands Affirm's ability to address the anti-aging marketplace."
According to the Millennium Research Group, the skin rejuvenation market is expected to grow annually by 18 percent, resulting in a $239 million industry by 2010, with approximately 4.4 million procedures performed per year by 2010.
