ASER HAIR REMOVAL REMAINS THE most popular light-based treatment offered1


performed in the US alone in 2011. Palomar Medical Technologies,


, with nearly 1 million treatments Inc.


(Burlington, Mass., USA; NASDAQ: PMTI), a


global leader in laser- and light-based systems for aesthetic treatments, has once again revolutionised light-based hair removal with the Palomar Vectus™ Laser—an advanced laser system offering distinct advantages in speed, comfort, and confidence. The Vectus laser is the result of Palomar’s unrivalled


experience in developing superior hair removal technologies, empowering the aesthetic provider with intelligent features that optimise hair removal treatments. Palomar has led the field of permanent hair reduction—from receiving the first US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for high-powered laser hair removal in 1997, through developing the best-selling hair removal laser, to advancing the science of hair removal technology with the next-generation Palomar Vectus Laser.


A dedicated solution The Vectus laser is a dedicated solution for high-volume hair removal. It provides fast, uniform, permanent hair reduction for the widest range of skin and hair types, without sacrificing comfort. ‘The Palomar Vectus Laser is absolutely superior to


all other existing technologies. Its large spot size allows us to treat male backs or female legs within 20minutes, and its parameters are optimal for minimising patient discomfort,’ said Josefina Royo de la Torre, MD, an early user of the Vectus Laser at Instituto Médico Láser in Madrid, Spain. The Palomar Vectus Laser features an integrated


Skintel™ Melanin Reader, allowing providers to more safely offer laser hair removal treatments, with optimised outcomes tailored to each client’s skin type, sun exposure habits, and ethnicity. The Skintel Melanin Reader provides an additional element of treatment confidence by determining the average melanin


density of skin, in a quantitative manner, prior to the hair removal treatment. Understanding how much melanin is in the skin helps the aesthetic professional to better choose the treatment settings for enhanced outcomes, while minimising the risk of over-treatment. The Skintel reader aids the treatment process by providing suggested test spot settings based on the individual’s melanin index value.


Intelligent user interface Until now, aesthetic treatment providers have primarily relied on fairly subjective tools to determine a client’s skin type—including the traditional Fitzpatrick Skin Type evaluation, observations of the client’s skin, and the client’s account of recent sun exposure. According to Nicola Otte, MD, of Dermatologikum
