Lumenis Ltd. (NASDAQ: LMNS), the world's largest energy-based medical device company for aesthetic, surgical, and ophthalmic applications, announced today that two oral presentations showing the benefit of the UltraPulse® in the treatment of patients with severe burn injuries will be presented at the 16th European Burns Association (EBA) Congress, taking place September 16 -19, 2015 in Hannover, Germany.
"In the past decade and a half, there have been major strides in the management of severe scars, especially with the increased adoption of laser therapy approaches," said Gerd Gauglitz, MD, dermatologist at the Department of Dermatology and Allergology, Ludwig Maximilians University, Munich, Germany. "Laser scar therapy, particularly fractional ablative laser resurfacing, has proven to be a significant advancement in scar treatment and management and has been progressively embraced as a promising tool in the multidisciplinary treatment of complex burns and traumatic scars."
At the forefront of laser solutions, the UltraPulse with SCAAR FX™, which was designed to treat everyday to complex skin conditions, features a range of full ablative, fractional ablative, and incisional modalities for treating damaged tissue. The laser platform features the Gold Standard UltraPulse® technology, enabling a deep and safe impact during treatments of scars leading to unique efficacy combined with optimal safety margins
"Before using this laser system, I was often challenged when facing severe scars," said Matteo Tretti Clementoni, MD, plastic surgeon at the Department of Laser and Surgery at the Istituto Dermatologico Europeo, Milan, Italy. "With the UltraPulse SCAAR FX mode, I am able to offer a minimally invasive procedure that yields excellent results in improving not only the aesthetic aspects of the scars, but also the plaiablity and pain aspects, thereby allowing me to improve the quality of life for my patients with severe burns."
"For nearly half a century, Lumenis has been committed to providing quality, innovative energy-based technologies," said Tzipi Ozer-Armon, CEO of Lumenis. "As the only laser solution company attending EBA, we are pleased to take part in this year's congress and look forward to introducing and discussing these important data with the European burn treatment community."
