cutera-YSGG-laser-technology.jpgThere is a pronounced need for better technology in the treatment of dermatological problems. With companies jumping into the fray in their efforts to address this need, today the cosmetic dermatology industry is worth about $150 million. Now, Cutera, Inc., the global supplier of laser and light-based aesthetic systems for practitioners, has stated that it will preview a new YSGG laser technology at the 65th annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), which is to be held on February 2 to 6, 2007. This technology generates a 2790 nm wavelength that has special optical characteristics and is to be used for minimally-invasive aesthetic procedures. This is the first time that this wavelength is applied in cosmetic dermatology.
