AVA MD introduces Brilliant Lotion, an oil-free lotion that brightens and adds glow to the skin. It also improves the texture of the skin and protects it from environmental damage.

Key ingredients in Brilliant Lotion include biodynes (a yeast extract that protects against the ozone), tri-peptides (enhances moisture content and revitalizes the moisture barrier), lotus fermentum (helps even skin tone and brighten skin), actigen (a combination of ginseng extract that increases oxygen and nutrients and decreases puffiness) and dermax SRC (a bamboo extract that helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and stimulates collagen synthesis).

Brilliant Lotion will be available on-line in late spring/early summer.

Cutera, Inc. introduces a new laser technology, the YSGG, which generates a 2790-nm wavelength. It has special optical characteristics for conducting minimally invasive aesthetic procedures. According to the company, this is the first application of this particular wavelength in cosmetic dermatology.

The YSGG works by removing a portion of the epidermis using a controlled amount of thermal effect. This technology complements Cutera's aesthetic procedures that are nonablative and require no down-time. It will be available on Cutera's Xeo platform, as a stand-alone unit and as an upgrade to existing users.

Cutera has filed for approval from the Food and Drug Administration. Marketing efforts will begin once it is FDA approved.
