Cosmetic laser technology has continuously advanced over the years, and many physicians have noted the progress in the past few years.
The American Association of Dermatology (AAD) Annual Meeting was held in March. One common topic according to the AAD articles is the advancement and improvement of aesthetic laser devices. Aesthetic laser devices can target skin and facial conditions, even allowing multiple treatments on one device.
Dr. Michael Gold, a renowned dermatologist, spoke in a symposium, noting the significant changes of the current aesthetic devices.
Aesthetic companies like Syneron, is gearing up to release new devices and make improvements with their current devices. In addition, Cutera introduced PICO Genesis last December that treats skin pigmentation, which also enhances the patient’s skin complexion.
Two doctors from the AAD conference has noted that laser will improve further in the future. Dr. Chapas said that there are studies being conducted over the use of a picolaser for other cosmetic purposes other than laser hair removal. Additionally, Dr. Waibel mentioned that research is also done to examine other laser uses.
The dermatologist added she is aware that new technology are being developed such as the free electron laser, which has promising uses for the medical sector.
