According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, in 2014, laser hair removal was the number one non (or minimally) invasive cosmetic procedure in the US for the 20-29 year old market – ahead of Botox and microdermabrasion. And the it’s a fast-growing treatment in Australia too. If you are looking to expand your business into laser hair removal, new kid on the block, Pélo Diode Laser, might be for you.

Created by Valeant Aesthetics – which already boasts an impressive portfolio of skin rejuvenating, body contouring and tightening technology (think, the hugely successful Fraxel, Clear + Brilliant, Thermage and acne-treating Isolaz) – Pélo Diode Laser boasts a new approach to permanent hair reduction.

Using a linear approach, the Pélo laser system also enlists integrated contact cooling to minimise pain and offers one of the fastest and largest treatment areas (50mm by 15mm) on the market.

“We are extremely excited to expand our portfolio of solutions and to be at the forefront of modern day technology and aesthetic offerings,” said Solta Medical General Manager Vladimir Paul-Blanc. “We believe in the science of linear scanning…and are confident it offers a significant advantage to current laser hair removal technology.”

Pélo offers clinicians the opportunity to attract (and keep) this rapidly growing hair-removal-seeking demographic – and the technology is proving a hit amongst dermatologists in the US already. One such doctor is leading San Diego based-dermatologist, Dr. Sabrina Fabi, who has recently enlisted the laser.

“I am excited for the launch of Pélo!” says Dr Fabi. “The 808nm wavelength allows me to treat a range of Fitzpatrick skin types, and the cooling crystal protects the epidermis while doing so. Unlike other diodes in the space, its cooling crystal helps mitigate pain, and I appreciate being able to alter the temperature of the cooling crystal.”

Pélo will first be made available exclusively to current Valeant Aesthetics customers in Australia and New Zealand, with full release scheduled in the third quarter of 2016.
