Fotona Sponsors LaserInnsbruck 2012 Conference

20 September 2012

Key speakers at the conference included internationally recognized experts in the field, such as R. Rox Anderson MD, and Christopher B. Zachary MD, Emil A. Tanghetti MD, Mathew M. Avram MD, Suzanne L. Kilmer MD, Albert J. Nemeth MD, Mereke Hoedersdal MD as well as many other noted luminaries. The LaserInnsbruck conference has quickly gained recognition as one of the foremost international venues for presenting the latest scientific knowledge in the field of laser and aesthetic surgery.

Fotona’s QX MAX and SP Dynamis lasers were featured prominently in 3 high-profile presentations that were very well received by the audience. On the first day of the conference, Dr. Jasmina Kozarev presented a new therapeutic tool for morphea (localized scleroderma) treatments using Fotona’s Er:YAG laser. The new technique captured the attention of many members of the audience, including Dr. Rox Anderson of Harvard Medical School’s department of Dermatology, who positively appraised Dr. Kozarev’s innovative research.

On the second day of the conference, Dr. Leonardo Marini introduced a new highly effective Tattoo removal treatment technique to the audience, involving a novel combination of Er:YAG fractional priming followed by Q-switched sequential layering. The new technique introduces microchannels, or skin perforations, which enhance the efficacy of pigment removal and reduce the healing time, enabling quicker execution of multiple treatments during a single session.

A separate presentation by Dr. Marini on the third day of the conference, entitled Thermo-Fractional Skin Rejuvenation – An effective combination of 1064 nm Nd:YAG and 2940 nm Er:YAG lasers discussed the benefits associated with dual-wavelength treatments, which are becoming a hot trend in skin rejuvenation. Multi-application lasers systems such as Fotona’s SP Dynamis were found to be the ideal tools for performing such cutting edge treatments.
