Palomar Offers New Skin Rejuvenation Platform And Announces The First FDA Clearance For Combination Fractional Resurfacing

BURLINGTON, Mass., Jan. 18, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Palomar Medical Technologies, Inc., a leading researcher and developer of lasers and pulsed-light systems for aesthetic treatments, is pleased to announce that the Artisan™ Aesthetic System is now being shipped. The Artisan provides a combined fractional ablative and fractional non-ablative laser skin resurfacing treatment – the first approach of this kind to receive clearance by the United States Food and Drug Administration.

The Artisan Aesthetic System includes a 1540 nm or 1440 nm non-ablative fractional laser and a 2940 nm ablative fractional laser for skin resurfacing and a MaxG™ optimized light handpiece for the treatment of pigmented and vascular lesions. Palomar's new FDA clearance covers the combination use of both the non-ablative and ablative fractional lasers during the same treatment session. Palomar believes that this specific collection of skin resurfacing and photofacial technologies allows practitioners to tailor a complete skin rejuvenation regimen for each individual client.

"Artisan combines the best of our non-ablative and ablative fractional laser technologies with our optimized light technology. This combination of technologies can be used to improve skin tone and texture, along with specific laser treatments for wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks. Practitioners now have the multiple technologies they need for an overall best-in-class treatment depending on each individual client's age, skin condition, and downtime preference," said Joseph P. Caruso, Palomar's President and Chief Executive Officer.

Palomar's unique combination ablative and non-ablative fractional treatment provides a direct benefit to clients. Arielle Kauvar, MD, director of New York Laser and Skin Care, said, "What is special about Artisan is that I customize just the right amount of ablative or non-ablative fractional treatment to fit each patient's needs for facial rejuvenation, as each patient has different preferences for speed of treatment, downtime, and the number of treatments they're willing to undergo. With Artisan, I can also treat the many patients who have scars and stretch marks." In 2009, Palomar received the first FDA clearance for the treatment of stretch marks using a fractional laser.
