HANDHELD HAIR RESTORATION
Apira Science, Newport Beach, Calif, releases iGrow, a home-use hair-restoration device that uses low-level laser therapy technology to effectively rejuvenate shedding and thinning hair. The iGrow comfortably sits atop the user’s head, providing continuous overall coverage and leaving them completely mobile and free to do other things while receiving treatment. The iGrow even allows for users to listen to music while their hair rejuvenates—it features iPod/MP3 compatibility.
The iGrow features 51 light sources that include 21 laser diodes and 30 LED lights to provide full scalp coverage, while combs and other handheld devices only have nine to 15 laser lights. The output from iGrow is equivalent to most in-office clinical hair lasers, according to the company.
CDCR INSTRUMENT SET
Bausch & Lomb Inc, Manchester, Mo, offers the Putterman Consecutive Conjunctivodacryocystorhinostomy Set, designed for the consecutive CDCR procedure to form the conjunctivodacryocystorhinostomy osteum and place the bypass tube while avoiding withdrawal and reinsertion of instruments in each step of the procedure. The needle is designed to create the initial track with the trephine used to slide over the needle to create the osteum. Once the needle is removed, the Bowman-type probe can be inserted through the trephine. When the trephine is removed, the probe can be used to measure the distance from medial canthus to nasal septum.
The probe features marks in 5.0-mm intervals from the tip to 15.0 mm, in 1.0-mm intervals from 15.0 mm to 25.0 mm, and again in 5.0-mm intervals from 25.0 mm to 35.0 mm.
