Covering modern trends in medical devices, the conference will be held on October 2, 2012 at the International Congress Center “Info-Space” in Moscow. Sessions will include:

“Even with excellent medical and surgical care, children who survive a severe burn often suffer from life-long problems from scarring. Fractional laser treatment is a new, effective way to improve the disfigurement, pain and stiffness of burn scars,” says Dr. Rox Anderson.” Lumenis’ fractional laser, UltraPulse with SCAAR FX, is the only fractional laser capable of going deeply into thick scars. I appreciate the company's initiatives to help children around the world, which also brings physicians together so that we can learn from each other."

"The success of treating conspicuous, complex and deep skin lesions can be attributed to the passion of the dermatologists and plastic surgeons who work relentlessly on this cause," said Rami Sharon, President of Lumenis EMEA. "It is our privilege to support them with our UltraPulse CO2 fractional technology, which is best-in-class globally."

Lumenis has collaborated extensively with leading dermatologists and plastic surgeons in supporting institutions such as: Three for Hope Foundation (USA), Katie Piper Foundation (UK), Angel Faces (USA), Missions for Children (Ecuador), Vascular Anomalies Center (Vietnam), Lackland Air Force Base Wounded Warriors and San Diego Naval Hospital Wounded Warriors.
