Lutronic USA, Princeton Junction, NJ, introduces its Mosaic fractional laser system for treating scars, sun damage, and melasma. Mosaic employs Lutronic’s patented controlled chaos technology (CCT), which delivers multiple arrays of randomized microscopic laser beams to the skin. The laser’s “spray paint” approach eliminates the need for multiple linear passes and the clinical disadvantages of unavoidable overlap. Affecting only a small portion of the total skin surface at each session, the micronecrotic columns stimulate a natural healing process to initiate long-term collagen remodeling and elastin regeneration. Excess necrotic pigment and coagulated cellular debris are then reepithelialized as the skin heals.
