Everyone wants to look and feel their best! Nowadays, dermatologists and plastic surgeons can resurface, rejuvenate and treat vascular lesions of all types with different laser and light-based platforms. Let’s discuss in detail about the development of such energy-based medical devices coming from different parts of the world.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you”creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships
