Lumenis Ltd., the world's largest medical laser company developing, manufacturing and distributing a broad range of medical lasers and sophisticated energy delivery equipment for surgical, aesthetic and ophthalmic applications, announces the signing of a distribution agreement with Fotona d.d. Lumenis will be the exclusive distributor of Fotona’s QX MAX Q-Switched laser in North America, to serve aesthetic practitioners who are interested in offering their customers treatment of pigmented and vascular lesions, and removal of colored ink tattoos.
Among a range of cleared indications for use, the FDA-cleared QX MAX Nd:YAG laser is used for the treatment of pigmented lesions and most colors of tattoos. With five lasers in one system, QX MAX has the highest single pulse energies for large spot treatment. The benefit of the laser’s various wavelengths enables aesthetics practitioners to optimize the removal of multi-colored tattoos and treat a range of pigmentation and vascular lesions, acne scars and wrinkle reduction. QX MAX has the ideal wavelength which is minimally absorbed in melanin. This allows the safe use for all skin types, including darker skin types.
“The Q-switch market potential is growing. We identified Fotona’s product as a technically superior, top of the line laser which expands our treatment offerings by enabling practitioners to offer tattoo removal and the treatment of deep pigmented lesions, among other applications,” said Tzipi Ozer-Armon, CEO of Lumenis.
“I am pleased that the largest medical laser company has decided to partner with Fotona. This agreement is a strong endorsement of our technology, and we look forward to working with Lumenis' expert team,” said Matjaz Lukac, President of Fotona.
"We are very excited to further expand our product portfolio with quality aesthetics applications,” said Bob Di Silvio, Lumenis’ President of the Americas. “It is a privilege to team up with one of the respected members of the laser industry and true professionals at Fotona to deliver QX MAX to the US market."
