IMCAS 2024: The Future of Vascular Laser Treatment

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the IMCAS World Congress, more than 18,000 visitors came to Paris in February 2024, amongst them the team from German Medical Engineering. With our symposium “The Future of Vascular Laser Treatments”, we were able to contribute to the event in a special way this year.

SFP™ – Selective Fractional Photothermolysis

After a quick opening and introduction by our managing director Dr. Stefan Schulze, renowned Dr. Dieter Manstein entered the stage and presented an exciting new treatment concept: Selective Fractional Photothermolysis, in short SFP™.

This new method combines the well-established principles of selective photothermolysis and fractional photothermolysis. SFP™ thus represents a highly efficient treatment approach with impressive results. The main tool utilized is a laser with a wavelength of 755 nm. For deeper effects, treatment is then continued with a fractional non-ablative laser with a wavelength of 1550 nm.

Prof. Engin Sezer – European Board Certified Dermatologist & Dermatopathologist (UEMS)

Prof. Engin Sezer then wowed the symposium attendees with the first results of the new treatment concept for rosacea, acne, scars and other vascular indications. SFP™ is also ideal for dark skin types – which is clearly visible in Prof. Sezer’s impressive results.

FlexSys: The perfect tool for SFP™

Our FlexSys® modular system is perfect for the concept of selective fractional photothermolysis. That’s because the two relevant laser modules 755 nm and 1550 nm can be easily combined in a single FlexSys® base unit. This not only ensures greater convenience for the user, but also consistently delivers excellent results.

We will be providing you with more information on SFP™ shortly. We also thank all participants for attending our symposium and for the numerous interesting questions and suggestions!
