WaveLight Laser Technolgie AG of Erlangen, Germany, is introducing three aesthetic lasers to the U.S. market at the 63rd Annual Meeting. Already used in Europe and Asia, the Sinon Q-switched ruby, the Mydon Nd:YAG and the Arion Alexandrite lasers will be Wavelight's first products to enter the U.S. market.

The Sinon Q-switched ruby laser has a 694 nm wavelength and is used for tattoo removal, treating pigmented skin lesions and hair removal in light skin patients (Type I and II).

The Mydon Nd:YAG is a long-pulsed laser and has a 1064 nm wavelength and can be used for hair removal in darker-skinned patients, removal of leg veins, hemangiomas and telangiectasias, as well as the treatment of wrinkles. The combination of large spot diameter and high output enables the Mydon to work up to 40 percent faster than other Nd:YAG systems, the company says.

The Arion Alexandrite is a long-pulsed laser with a 755 nm wavelength. It is designed for hair removal for skin types I through IV and the treatment of superficial blood vessels.
