20 Years of Creating Results That Matter

ThermaScan™

ThermaScan is a non-ablative, non-invasive treatment for wrinkles, acne and acne scars using the power of infrared 1319 nm energy.

ThermaScan Overview

Pulsed energy at a 1319 nm wavelength allows controlled heating of sub-epidermal layers of the skin. This is ideal for non-invasive wrinkle and acne scar treatment through collagen remodeling or for treating acne by heating sebaceous glands thereby minimizing oil production. The pulse duration and high scattering coefficient limit the heated region to a uniform thin layer below the epidermal-dermal boundary.

The LAPG (Large Area Pattern Generator) computer-guided high speed scanner provides precise placement of each spot in a non-sequential pattern to prevent excessive heat build-up promoting thermal relaxation time between pulses. In addition, the advanced robotic scanning offers smooth operation, faster treatments, and 100% coverage.

To achieve optimal safety and patient comfort, the LAPG provides integrated contact cooling through sapphire plates and a powerful external chilling unit. The intelligent user interface provides user-friendly and quick guidance to initial settings for the treating conditions. ThermaScan is designed for all skin types including tanned skin.

Clinical Applications

The infrared laser treatment requires heating the target region to an elevated temperature within a narrow temperature band.
Rejuvenation of dermal collagen includes:

  • Wrinkles
  • Acne
  • Acne scars
  • Skin tone and texture

Science + Technology

Large Area Pattern Generator (LAPG™) & Non-Sequential Scanning

  • ThermaScan™ utilizes the LAPG high speed scanner in a non-sequential delivery for comfortable hair reduction with continuous contact cooling for precise, uniform coverage
  • The computer guided scanner covers large areas rapidly and evenly
  • Maximizes the time interval between adjacent spots for precision thermal relaxation time
  • Minimizes subsurface heat build-up providing additional comfort during treatment
  • High speed, uniform coverage
  • Improved efficacy

Powerful Cooling

ThermaScan’s powerful sapphire plate contact cooling, for pre-, during, and post-treatment, provides increased patient safety and comfort.

Beam Profile

The precise targeted flat-top beam profile causes less energy scattering and enables deep penetration to targeted chromophores. Uniform energy distribution results in even treatment to prevent central heat buildup.

No Consumables

ThermaScan delivers superior clinical results with no consumable costs.

Powerful Cooling

ClearScan YAG’s powerful sapphire plate contact cooling, for pre-, during, and post-treatment, provides increased patient safety and comfort.
