Lumenis Celebrates 50 Years of Changing Lives Through Innovation at the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD)
March 1, 2017 – Orlando, FL, USA
Lumenis Ltd., the world’s largest energy-based medical device company for surgical, aesthetic, and ophthalmic applications, proudly announces its 50th anniversary, which will be celebrated at the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Annual Meeting in Orlando, FL from March 3rd – 7th, 2017.
As an international leader in the development and commercialization of innovative aesthetic energy-based technologies, Lumenis has invented Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) for skin treatments, LightSheer® – diode laser for hair removal and the UltraPulse® – the most powerful CO2 laser in aesthetic medicine, among many others. Lumenis has redefined medical treatments and set numerous technological and clinical gold standards. The company has successfully created solutions for previously untreatable conditions, as well as designed advanced technologies that have revolutionized existing treatment methods.
“When we were the first to develop the IPL in the 1990s, it was not clearly understood how a pulsed broadband non-laser energy source could treat specific chromophore targets, but through the years it has proven to be one of the most versatile technologies on the market. The invention of these laser and light-based approaches for dermatology- opened up my practice for a whole new set of aesthetic indications [that] I never had a good solution for. Now I can’t do [it] without them,” said Dr. Mitchel P. Goldman, from Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, San Diego, Medical Director for West Dermatology and a former Medical Director at Lumenis. Dr. Goldman is a guest speaker at the AAD.
Lumenis’ vision is to provide better technology for better patient care through innovative energy-based solutions. With a ground-breaking technological legacy of five decades, the company is committed to enhancing patient health and quality of life, addressing new and growing needs of the aging population, and continuing to offer medical professionals innovative solutions to meet the developing and dynamic healthcare environment of the 21st century.
“Lumenis is proud to provide advanced noninvasive solutions from the most common to the most severe skin concerns,” said Tzipi Ozer-Armon, CEO of Lumenis. “As we have for the past 50 years, Lumenis is committed to continue supporting medical community leaders advancing the use of medical laser technologies and providing innovative, life-changing treatment benefits.”
In an effort to serve underprivileged and underserved populations, Lumenis has partnered with a number of foundations, hospitals, and healthcare professionals internationally, with countries including Haiti, Russia, St. Lucia, India, Africa, and Armenia, to provide the latest energy-based treatments to patients suffering from conditions such as BPH, burn injuries, and glaucoma. Lumenis lasers are used in humanitarian missions around the world to treat wounded warriors, war survivors, and severe scar patients, including Kim Phuc, a survivor of the Vietnam War bombing who is recognized as “The Girl in the Picture.”
Lumenis lasers improve the quality of life of many patients around the world, such as cancer survivor, Angela Wissel, who is also speaking at the AAD. “The FemTouch procedure was absolutely life changing. I couldn’t believe the difference in just a short amount of time, and we had our life back – literally. It was amazing,” said Wissel. “The treatments are quick, they are painless, they’re easy, and I wish I had known about this instead of suffering for years waiting for a solution.”
Lumenis will honor its 50th anniversary and decades of innovation at this year’s AAD with a champagne celebration. Please visit lumenis.com for a detailed agenda of activities at the conference.
