San Francisco, CA – January 1, 2013. — Perigee Medical. (Redwood City, CA) announced today they are the exclusive American distributor of aesthetic lasers manufactured by Asclepion (Jena, Germany), including the new TattooStar Effect, high performance tattoo removal system, and the new MedioStar NeXT, the world’s fastest laser hair removal system.  Asclepion develops and manufactures premium medical laser systems In Jena, Germany, including, DermAblate,  the world’s best selling fractional erbium laser for skin rejuvenation.

The TattooStar comprises the most advanced technology available for tattoo removal with extremely high-energy laser pulses that disrupt tattoo ink particles in nanoseconds. The laser beam is delivered through a new optical configuration, which provides a unique uniform beam profile without the hot spots of all previous systems. This means more reproducible and comfortable treatments.   Patients will need fewer treatments and each treatment is far more comfortable.

The MedioStar NeXT is the latest model in a series of hair removal systems powered by next generation  high power diode lasers. MedioStar has some very unique characteristics including using a dual wavelength diode array for higher efficacy in eliminating hair follicles by expanding the range of depths and hair types it targets. The light is delivered through a proprietary fiber bundle, an industry first, and results in a perfectly uniform and flat beam profile on skin. Like the TattooStar, there are no hot spots in the beam. As a result the system can run at higher more effective powers, and be more comfortable than other systems. It has a dual cooling head that protects and soothes treated skin.  It eliminates the cumbersome vacuum system required by other diode systems enabling  it to treat at significantly higher rates of up to 12Hz.

Perigee Medical is taking over sales, service, and support of the Asclepion line products from DEKA Medical Inc, of San Francisco, CA, a the North American Division of the El.En. Group  (Florence, Italy), a worldwide leader and pioneer in the laser market and industry based near Florence, Italy. Both DEKA and Asclepion are members of the El En Group. DEKA Medical will continue to focus exclusively on the DEKA line of products.
