Alma Lasers develops new treatment option for superficial vascular lesions
Alma Lasers develops new treatment option for superficial vascular lesions Caesarea, Israel, March 14, 2007— Alma Lasers Ltd. announced today the introduction and availability of a new treatment module for superficial vascular lesions, called the AFT™ 515 SVL.
This new AFT 515 SVL module is the 12th such module available for the Harmony platform—Alma Lasers’ flagship multi-application, multi-technology device.
The AFT 515 SVL effectively treats telangiectasia, facial spider veins, hemangioma, spider veins, rosacea and other superficial vascular lesions. While earlier AFT (Advanced Fluorescence Technology™) modules were cleared to treat general vascular and pigmented lesions, the new AFT 515 SVL delivers the exact fluences and pulse durations required to safely treat these specific malformations in stubborn or outstanding cases.
“The AFT 515 SVL provides the higher energy needed for difficult telangiectasias—up to 25 J/cm2,” explains Yariv Matzliach, Executive Vice President for Global Marketing at Alma Lasers.
“This high AFT energy, combined with short pulse duration of 10, 12 and 15 miliseconds, provides high specificity and remarkable results for these conditions. We will continue to innovate and develop new technologies like these to meet our customers’ needs.”Alma Lasers’s Harmony platform is an open platform that can be tailored for very specific applications. In the case of stubborn, superficial vascular lesions, the clinical condition requires higher energy at lower pulse duration—and the customization on the AFT515 SVL gives it greater efficacy and makes it even safer for patients.Available now, the AFT 515 SVL can be used safely on skin types from I through V on the Fitzpatrick scale.
Clinical outcomes show an immediate closure of blood vessels, with even more marked improvement over time.
To ensure optimal results, the AFT 515 SVL also comes complete with a set of templates that give the physician even greater precision.
The AFT 515 SVL is compatible with all models of Harmony and in many cases can even replace the traditional KTP 532 nm laser for treatment of superficial vascular lesions.
About AFTAFT is the next generation of multi-application pulsed light technology. Its breakthrough design converts unused UV light into the optimal spectrum used by each application.
This dramatic boost in efficiency also extends the life of the pulsed light head (up to three times longer than that of other pulsed light systems), significantly lowering the cost of ownership.
