Company

Business description: Aesthera develops, manufactures and markets light-based aesthetic treatment systems based on proprietary Photopneumatic Technology that is more effective than currently available methods for hair removal, skin rejuvenation and treatment of vascular and pigmented lesions. Found in trial research to be pain-free and up to seven times faster, Aesthera's revolutionary aesthetic system combines the proven properties of therapeutic light with gentle pneumatic energy to create an unprecedented efficiency of photons delivered to the target. Now Aesthera allows physicians to provide high technology aesthetic treatments in a system with very low cost-to-own and near-immediate profitability -- finally freeing the practice from dependence upon high patient volume to achieve a favorable return on investment.
