New Star Lasers dba CoolTouch Inc., a leading U.S.-based developer and manufacturer
of innovative, advanced laser products for medical professionals, is considered
a pioneer in the medical and aesthetics technology industry. The company’s focus
is to solve medical problems through scientific innovation and the development of
cutting-edge technology. CoolTouch is backed by an extensive intellectual property
collection, with more than 20 active patents.
CoolTouch is firmly committed to exceeding the expectations of medical professionals
and patients alike. The company’s products are designed to produce substantial,
highly-effective results with less patient downtime, while providing the most effective
technology for physicians.
In 1994, medical professionals were introduced to CoolTouch’s signature 1320 nm
wavelength laser. The launch of CoolTouch’s non-ablative wrinkle treatment featured
the first technology to use a wavelength that targets water, rather than blood or
melanin, in dermal tissue for collagen rejuvenation and an advanced skin tightening
effect. Setting a new standard, CoolTouch’s pioneering technology virtually created
the non-ablative skin resurfacing market and set new standards for shorter patient
downtime and minimal complications compared to previous ablative laser technologies.
CoolTouch’s products and technology continue to set the bar for effective treatment
of acne scarring and wrinkle treatments.
In 2004, CoolTouch further enhanced its position in the market with the introduction
of the CoolTouch CTEV™ system for treatment of varicose veins. The system is used
in a relatively new procedure called endovenous laser ablation, which provides patients
with an attractive alternative to vein stripping. Doctors have reported that the
endovenous procedure provides less discomfort, a quicker recovery period and better
clinical and cosmetic outcomes at a lower cost than other available treatments.
CoolTouch CTEV is cited as having a greater than 95% closure of varicose veins after
just one treatment.
In 2007, CoolTouch directed its energy at solving one of the most widespread cosmetic
concerns – fat removal and tightening of associated loose skin. The CoolTouch CoolLipo™
system gained immediate success for its ability to sculpt areas of the body that
are not easily treated by conventional liposuction, such as the small areas of the
neck, jowls and chin. CoolLipo’s 1320 nm wavelength provides a skin tightening effect
through collagen stimulation, and studies indicate that the method in which CoolLipo’s
energy is delivered provides a more effective ablation of fat with less collateral
damage than other lasers. CoolTouch recently introduced the CoolBlue Duet™, the
first handpiece on the market that lases and aspirates simultaneously, saving physicians
and patients time and providing tighter skin more efficiently.
With a reputation for customer service and a focus on developing high quality, durable
products, CoolTouch has secured a loyal consumer base of esteemed medical professionals
that continues to grow, and has established the company as a recognizable, trusted
brand. CoolTouch has won many prestigious awards, including a perennial listing
as one of the 100 Fastest-Growing Companies in Sacramento (1997, 1998, 2000, 2001,
2005 and 2006); the Vanguard Award in 1998 for excellence in manufacturing and again
in 2001 for achievement in worldwide export; Start up of the Year Award 1996; and
Aesthetic Magazine’s Best Wrinkle Laser 2005 & 2006.
