The Lumenis OPT™ advantages
• Control pulse shape by equalizing energy distribution over the entire pulse or sequential pulses
• Gentler, more comfortable, patient-friendly procedures, with lower effective fluences
• High peak power, shorter pulses – optimal for IPL skin treatments using photorejuvenation and treatment of benign pigmented lesions
• Advanced OPT will also allow determining the specific fluence per sub-pulse when using multiple-sequential pulsing, for fine-tuned treatment settings.
