This is a 1999 fully refurbished Derma K. It comes with both the CPG scanner and handpiece
Both the CO2 laser and Erbium:YAG laser are clinically proven to be effective technologies for ablative skin rejuvenation. And yet, alone, each laser has its limitations. In order to provide physicians access to the best of each laser wavelength, ESC Sharplan combines the high-power Erbium:YAG and sub-ablative CO2 laser in the blended Derma K system. Unique new method for skin rejuvenation: Derma K has the unique capability to deliver both Er:YAG and CO2 beams simultaneously (K blend mode) to the same tissue area for exceptional skin rejuvenation. The Er:YAG carries out accurate ablation of superficial layers, opening the way for the CO2 to affect the deeper tissue layers.
Controlled Thermal Profile: Derma K combines the best of both the Er: YAG and CO2 lasers for improved clinical efficacy. It replicates the precise tissue ablation and minimal necrosis found in Er:YAG systems and significantly controls the heating of deeper tissue layers, typical of CO2 systems.
Hemostasis: The concurrent delivery of both wavelengths provides the physician with enhanced control over hemostasis, (Dry Erbium technique) thereby increasing the range of applications for Er:YAG laser. The CO2 mode of the Derma K delivers sufficient thermal energy to seal small blood vessels throughout the surgical procedure, creating the benefit of a clean, dry surgical field.
Reduced number of passes: Simultaneous operation of both the Erbium and CO2 lasers minimizes the number of passes required for a given procedure, thereby minimizing erythema and decreasing the recovery time. At the same time the dual wavelengths allow more overall energy to the tissue, increasing ablation depth as it controls thermal impact.
Versatility: Can also perform many standard CO2 surgical and aesthetic procedures like blepharoplasty.
Less pain: No need for general anesthesia or intravenous sedation when treating most body areas.
This unique combination allows physicians to treat a variety of aesthetic conditions on the face, from deep wrinkles and fine lines to scars and pigmentary disorders, in a single treatment session. Derma K's blended laser technology can also be used on the neck and hands in select patients. With so many men and women presenting with a variety of conditions, the versatility and effectiveness of Derma K make it not just an instrument, but an entire symphony.
