Two Laser Treatments In One

The types of lasers geared towards skincare are proliferating these days, and Syneron is adding to the mix with eTwo, one machine that produces two types of radio frequency that target both deep and upper layers of the skin to smooth away wrinkles and brighten the skin.

The new FDA-cleared machine, which was introduced at the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery Conference in Washington, DC, earlier this month, uses what it calls Sublime and Sublative applications.

Sublime uses the elos technology (which has been used for laser hair removal), with infrared and bi-polar radio-frequency energies to effect the deep dermal layer of skin to promote new collagen growth. Sublative is fractionated bi-polar radio frequency that heats the upper layer of the dermis, without extensive damage to the skin. Sublime and Sublative are administered simultaneously, which sets it apart from other laser treatments, the company says. Three treatments are needed, spaced four to six weeks apart. The whole procedure takes less than an hour and the full series ranges from $3,000 to $3,500.
