Fractional resurfacing laser offers deep ablative features

Lutronic : 02 June, 2008  (New Product)
Lutronic’s MOSAIC eCO2 system, the next generation in fractional resurfacing lasers combining fractional technology with the deep ablative features of a CO2 laser, is in its late stages of FDA review and clearance.
With intuitive touch-screen software, the powerful MOSAIC eCO2 features a contoured scanner hand piece with adjustable controls, enabling the practitioner to select various scanning patterns with different shapes and sizes.

The patented intuitive software allows rapid selections between a continuous pulse, a randomised or sequential beam pattern, as well as penetrating or thermal type tip for patient-specific requirements and customized clinical results.

Built-in ‘smart’ fail-safes include sensor technology such as controlled chaos scanning technology (CCST) that minimises double passing over previously treated skin as well as a hand piece / system interface that prevents the laser from firing unless the hand piece tip is in contact with the skin. In specific indications, the skin contact activated ‘repeat pulse’ feature can be disabled converting the system to a standard foot pedal control device. Also featured is an energy-efficient, self-contained slim-line console with a maintenance-free articulated arm delivery system and convenient foot switch.

'The MOSAIC eCO2 is perhaps the most innovative and versatile multi-functional fractional CO2 laser system designed through not only extensive R and D, but doctor input and patient comfort optimisation models as well,' said Jhung-Won Hwang, PhD, senior director of regulatory affairs, Lutronic. 'And, with our contemporary signature design, MOSAIC eCO2 is the easiest, most sophisticated, and highest quality laser system available today, delivering precision where it counts - to the patient. Less pain, shorter downtime, and rapid recovery are the cornerstones to this vitally important addition to the Lutronic family of medical laser products.'

MOSAIC eCO2 is designed to address a broad scope of clinical applications requiring the ablation, vapourisation, excision, incision, and coagulation of soft tissue in dermatology and plastic surgery. A wide range of conditions may be treated with the highest degree of efficacy such as total skin resurfacing, treatment of fine wrinkles, rhytids, acne scars, surgical scars, and uneven pigmentation, such as lentigines and dyschromia.

The MOSAIC eCO2 Laser System utilises a CO2 tube to generate a laser beam with a wavelength of 10.6um. Taken together with the scanner hand piece, the physician can optimise the effect for different applications by controlling the power of the laser pulse and using a different scan pattern.

'The main differentiating feature of the MOSAIC eCO2 system is the 'freedom' it brings to the practitioner as well as to the patient: freedom from inferior fractional laser systems; freedom from painful treatments and questionable results; freedom to self-select depth and density of treatment; and freedom to select Static and Dynamic modes to deliver the best results possible.

'The ability to combine two operation modes in one delivery system is particularly important when comparing MOSAIC eCO2 to other fractional CO2 lasers,' continued Dr Hwang. 'Static mode offers deeper penetration and greater patient comfort, and Dynamic mode is ideal for larger area blending and smoothing. The laser works exceptionally well in medical applications because 10.6um is near the peak of tissue water absorption, and when water in the tissue absorbs the laser energy, it heats up. This heating causes instantaneous vapourisation of the target tissue. This smart system is yet another example of Lutronic's tireless efforts as the vanguard in breakthrough aesthetic and clinical laser technology.'
