Pulsed energy at a 1319 nm wavelength allows controlled heating of sub-epidermal layers of the skin. This is ideal for non-invasive wrinkle and acne scar treatment through collagen remodeling or for treating acne by heating sebaceous glands thereby minimizing oil production. The pulse duration and high scattering coefficient limit the heated region to a uniform thin layer below the epidermal-dermal boundary.
The LAPG (Large Area Pattern Generator) computer-guided high speed scanner provides precise placement of each spot in a non-sequential pattern to prevent excessive heat build-up promoting thermal relaxation time between pulses. In addition, the advanced robotic scanning offers smooth operation, faster treatments, and 100% coverage.
To achieve optimal safety and patient comfort, the LAPG provides integrated contact cooling through sapphire plates and a powerful external chilling unit. The intelligent user interface provides user-friendly and quick guidance to initial settings for the treating conditions. ThermaScan is designed for all skin types including tanned skin.
