16th July 2013, Dubai, UAE – According to a new market report by Transparency Market Research the global market for medical laser systems is set to rise in value from USD 909 million in 2011 to an estimated USD 2 billion in 2018, that is a compound growth rate of 12.5% per annum. Two of the key driving forces behind such significant growth are an overall ageing population and the increasing accessibility of advanced laser treatment around the world, particularly in the area of aesthetics.
In Dubai, UAE, Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group, a major international player in the field of plastic and cosmetic surgery, and renowned as a proponent and early adopter of the latest medical techniques, surgical and non-surgical, is soon to take delivery of one of the latest generation of medical lasers, a “Mixed Technology” aesthetic laser workstation from Quanta System S.p.A. of Italy.
Dr Allen Rezai, founder and lead surgeon of Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group, explains: “The Mixed Technology laser is able to combine two laser wavelengths in one emission with programmable pulse duration, fluence and sequences which increases both the safety and efficiency of treatments in terms of time taken and quality of result. From a single laser workstation the operator has access to Nd:YAG, Alexandrite and Er:YAG systems, the former two also in combination. The result is the ability to perform a large range of vascular , skin rejuvenation and hair removal treatments, including laser skin resurfacing, photorejuvenation, and the removal of scars and thread veins.”
“Apart from the extensive range of treatments that this technology enables us to perform, it also means that we can work with a very wide range of skin types, from pale skin through to the olive and darker skin types typical of the Middle East,” says Dr Rezai.
Arguably the most well-known aesthetic laser technology application is that of laser hair removal, which is today enjoying enormous popularity with both women and men in the UAE and the Middle East in general. It is typically provided through the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), Nd:YAG or Diode laser systems functioning in isolation, and regularly carried out at medical spas or cosmetic surgery clinics. However the service provided by Dr Rezai’s clinic will provide an enhanced experience, not only through employment of the latest in laser technology, but also resulting from the quality of service available through his highly skilled professional on-site medical team.
According to Dr Rezai, the UAE is still a growing market and one which is open, receptive and enthusiastic to embrace advanced medical treatments and solutions. He is therefore certain that his Dubai based clinic’s ever growing number of clients will respond positively to the range of non-invasive aesthetic procedures made available through the introduction of this advanced laser technology. Indeed, judging by the level of enquiries received even prior to receiving the laser, its future will certainly be assured.
