     01                                     01 Improved Pulsed Light
                                            Palomar Medical Technologies introduces the MaxG
                                            pulsed light handpiece for use with the company’s
                                            Artisan and StarLux Systems. Designed to rival the
                                            performance of single wavelength lasers, the MaxG
                                            combines Palomar’s Dynamic Spectrum Shifting and
                                            dual band filters—which increase the concentration
                                            of near-infrared light in longer pulse widths to provide
                                            more uniform heating across the entire diameter of
                                            larger vessels. Additionally, in comparison to non-
                                            optimized pulsed light, the MaxG offers more energy
                                            across all pulse durations. Plus, greater peak power to
                                            address small vessels, and higher fluences for mid-
                                            to-large resistant vessels. Contact: 800.725.6627,

                  03                        commonly cited periorbital cosmetic concerns—dark
                                            undereye circles, undereye wrinkles and poor skin
                                            texture. The cream features six primary ingredients:
                                            five to address the five causes of dark circles—blood
                                            leakage, iron discoloration, inflammation, thin and
                                       02   fragile skin, and pigmentation—and one to improve

                                            changes—making the product a good choice for patients
                                            with light eye and skin color. In company-sponsored

                     Physicians have a new tool available to address hypopigmentation
