PRINCETON JUNCTION, N.J., May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Lutronic, one of the world's leading developers and manufacturers of medical laser systems, announced today that it has received FDA clearance to market its Spectra VRM III multiple laser wavelength system. This dual pulse Q-Switched Nd: Yag laser is the feature-laden successor to the Spectra VRM II. It is specifically designed to treat a wide array of dermatological and aesthetic conditions by photo-acoustical removal of epidermal and dermal pigmented lesions including all types of tattoo colors. The highly versatile VRM III is the most powerful laser available in its class. Its intuitive smart exchange communicative software allows treatment of a wide variety of cosmetic and medical conditions for general dermatology, dermatologic and general surgical procedures for coagulation and hemostasis.
The 1064nm operates in both a "Q"-switched and long pulse mode. This is a first in the medical laser industry and affords results that have traditionally required two different lasers. Taken together with a "Q"-switched 532nm and two 532 pumped dye hand-pieces that produce 585nm and 650nm, the Spectra VRM III is the perfect solution for treating multi-colored tattoos, including light and dark inks.
The key to this unique laser is its extremely high peak powers that allow the pulse width to be fixed at the shortest pulse width. This feature is unique and is not available today anywhere else in the industry. Additionally, when increasing the energy there is no need to increase its pulse width and as a result, the photo-acoustical effect is greatly enhanced. For troublesome lesions such as melasma, this unit has become the system and treatment of choice in Europe and Asia, and it is anticipated that US physicians will immediately embrace and embellish this capability.
Jhung-Won Hwang, Ph.D., Sr. Director of Regulatory Affairs, Lutronic Inc., adds, "One of the more notable features of the VRM III is the minimizing of peripheral skin damage around the treatment site. The fixed extreme short pulse widths of the Spectra VRM III produce high intense pulses of laser light that significantly lightens or completely removes tattoos without scarring. Because we pride ourselves in being a patient-centric thought leader, elimination of pain as well as healing enhancement are top research and development priorities. Healing means skin rejuvenation and VRM III delivers."
With the addition of the novel Spectra Mode, a quasi-long pulse of 300 microseconds is produced, and with a thermal component, this longer pulse is ideally suited for the newest application in non-ablative skin resurfacing. This was recently introduced internationally for safe skin rejuvenation of all skin types, specifically types IV, V and VI. Used in combination with a patent pending Spectra Photo-Enhancer Lotion, the Spectra Mode creates a photo-thermal effect that penetrates the skin while stimulating skin resurfacing. The end result of this process is improved skin appearance with the removal or lightening of fine hair.
Another feature of the Spectra VRM III is Spectra Laser Toning, which has been proven internationally to be a safe and effective way to eliminate the symptoms of melasma. Proven and impressive clinical results have been achieved with this non-ablative procedure. "Short treatment duration and the all important minimizing of patient discomfort are patient imperatives. Cosmetic laser practices depend on specific technological features essential to successful dermatological and aesthetic procedures and the Spectra VRM III comes standard with several essentials such as a top-hat beam profile, short pulse duration and high peak power -- all critical constituents for the practitioner and the patient," continued Dr. Hwang.
"Among the vast sea of commercially available medical lasers, particularly those used in plastic surgery and dermatology, the Spectra VRM III will prove to be the most valuable investment made by any dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or facial plastic surgeon. Its simplicity and safety are opening doors to other emerging markets where results, absence of discomfort, and zero downtime are required."
