The Cortex from Sandstone Medical Technologies is the first skin resurfacing laser system to include both a CO2 and Er:YAG laser in the same console. The device offers fractional CO2—with an adjustable density for up to 95% coverage—plus fractional and full-coverage Er:YAG technologies. The dual wavelengths allow practitioners to perform skin resurfacing procedures on a variety of skin types and for a variety of indications. The CO2 laser penetrates deeply and provides heat to stimulate collagen, while the Er:YAG laser helps to soften the texture of the epidermis and remove pigmentation from the top layers of skin. The Cortex is affordably priced just under $60,000. Contact: 205.290.8251, www.sandstonemedicaltechnologies.com.
