The nasolacrimal duct obstruction is suffered by 2-4% of population over 40 years old and 30-40% of individuals over 90 years old.
The traditional treatment method is to surgically reopen the lacrimal duct externally.
However, this is a lengthy, difficult procedure associated with a high potential for side effects such as strong, post-operative bleeding and
Hyper Photonics can supply a procedure kit for DCR that makes the reopening of the lacrimal duct a safer, minimally invasive procedure.
The cannula is introduced once in order to perform the treatment pain-free and bloodlessly.
Then, the required drainage is set in place using the same cannula.
The procedure can be done under local anesthesia and leaves no scars.
Atraumatic procedure Limited complications and side effects Local anesthesia
No post-operative bleeding or oedema
No hospitalization, it is an outpatient surgery center procedure
Enables a return to usual activities the following day
Minimally invasive procedure
Very short learning curve
Hyper Diode 1470 emits at a wavelength highly absorbed by fat compared with other wavelength. Laser light energy is absorbed causing the swelling and rupture of adipocytes. When the fat is melted, it can either be absorbed by the body or removed by the physician with liposuction. While melting the fatty tissue the Hyper Diode 1470 also tightens the surrounding skin, preventing it from sagging after the
fatty deposits have been removed. The heating effect of the laser induces new collagen and elastin formation within the skin. Shrinking is more pronounced and skin is much smoother than after classical liposuction.
Laser lipolysis is less invasive than classical liposuction because only a 1-2mm incision is required to insert the cannula with the optical fiber and there is no need for general anesthesia.
The fatty tissue removal process requires less external force and exertion compared to the standard liposuction.
Thermally induced coagulation minimizes bleeding and trauma, as well as posttreatment bruising and swelling. Patients can expect shorter recovery times and a reduced need for compressive garments, while they can get back to their daily activities immediately after the procedure.
Hyper Photonics offers a unique handpiece with small outer diameter cannulas and an integrated aspiration channel.
For getting started with the laser lipolysis, Hyper Photonics organizes training and live demonstration to the doctors.
Safe, fast, effective
Minimal discomfort during the procedure
Avoid loose skin
No stitches required
No general anesthesia required
Training with laser specialist
The 1470 nm wavelength targets the water in the vein wall instead of the hemoglobin. This results in a more comfortable procedure for patients without post-operative bruising or swelling.
The water absorption rate at 1470nm is approximately 60 times more than the 980nm lasers.
Through this laser, physicians get the superior laser results of better than a 95 percent success rate with closing the vein; and they either have the same or less bruising that can be got with the radiofrequency closure devices.
The benefits are the following: treatment takes less than an hour, no general anesthesia, little to no pain or bruising, no recovery period, return to daily activities immediately, no scarring.
Endovenous laser ablation uses heat energy to close the vein from the inside, quickly relieving patients of symptoms.
Procedures are quick and pain-free. Patients can walk out of the clinic.
After a few weeks the large veins on their leg are completely gone.
Patients no longer suffer from the pain and swelling.
Safer and gentle
Almost no complications
Onychomychosis is a fungal infection of the nail and its prevalence is about 6% in the adult population. The causative pathogens of onychomycosis include dermatophytes like Trichophyton (rubrum, interdigitale, Epidermophyton floccosum), but also molds and yeasts like Candida.
Complete treatment of onychomycosis is challenging because the infection is embedded within the nail and is difficult to reach; full removal of symptoms is slow and may take a year or more.
Most treatments are either systemic or topical antifungal medications.
These antifungal treatments achieve modest clinical results and, in addition, can cause common side effects like headache, skin and gastrointestinal disordes.
A novel non–invasive approach includes the irradiation of a laser beam, whose wavelength is absorbed by microbial pathogens on a specific area. The absorbed energy is converted into heat and the consequent temperature increase deactivates the pathogenic micro-organism without damaging the surrounding tissues.
The specific wavelength of 980nm deactivates the parasitic organism; moreover, the pulse width of the laser beam, in the order of ms, is lower than the skin relaxation time (of the order of 10 ms) and this allows the thermal confinement of the absorbed energy and the consequent painless treatment.
The Hyper Diode 1064 laser is supplied with an optical fiber, handpiece and safety goggles in a suitcase for the easy transportation of the device.
Quick and safe
No side effects
No local anesthesia is required Does not harm the nail or skin
Shoes and nail polish can be worn immediately after treatment
Near-IR radiation therapy is safer than teratogenic UV therapy
No toxic smokes typical of pulsed lasers, is generated by photoablation
No photosensitizing agents are required
Laser is maintenance-free
The Hyper Diode 980 System is a minimally invasive surgical laser used to ac-commodate a number of surgical applications in both small animal and equine medicine. Because it is minimally invasive, it reduces or eliminates the need for anesthesia, reduces pain, reduces chance of infection, all leading to a shorter recovery time for the patient. It seals vessels while cutting or ablating so blood loss is minimal, which is especially important during internal procedures.
