BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Are you looking to take your practice into the aesthetic fractional world? Ellman's Cortex Laser allows for Fractional CO2 as well as Erbium resurfacing while also providing incisional capacity that is superior to that of other surgical tools. With this device, you improve efficiency and patient satisfaction at low cost.


This versatile laser platform combines superficial Erbium: YAG resurfacing, deep CO2 resurfacing with the many advantages of incisional CO2 technology into one easy-to-use device.

Incisional Tool

When used as an incisional tool, the Ellman Cortex CO2 Laser provides a high level of precision, leading to reduced bleeding and bruising.

"I really enjoy this device. Using the laser rather than a scalpel or cautery gives me more control and leads to aesthetically better outcomes. I especially like using this device when adjusting lid height because the procedure is easier to control when there is no bleeding."

Steven G. Safran, MD

"In terms of incisional procedures, this tool is especially useful for hemostasis, which provides both functional and cosmetic value."

George K. Escaravage Jr., MD

Fractional Resurfacing

Fractional techniques increase heat in skin tissue, allowing physicians to remodel the underlining collagen to improve surface texture and the overall appearance of the skin. The Ellman Cortex CO2 Laser thus improves wrinkles without bruising and is a great alternative to a chemical peel.

"This laser has transformed the way I operate because I can use the laser to tighten skin. My patients are happy with the results of the laser, as recovery time is faster, and results are aesthetically better."  

- George K. Escaravage Jr., MD


Dr. George Escaravage of the Coastal Carolina Eye Clinic in Wilmington, NC says of the Cortex CO2 laser: "This is the perfect first investment for ophthalmologists looking to branch into aesthetics because it is simple to use, has a lot of flexibility, and can be used as a surgical instrument for skin resurfacing and incisional procedures."

He explains: "In less than a year, this laser has brought in enough income to pay for itself. Not many lasers can claim that." This laser augmented my practice with little capital investment and very little maintenance. Customer support has been great – extremely responsive."

Dr. Steven Safran, an ocular surface disease specialist and aesthetic ophthalmic surgeon in Lawrenceville, NJ concurs: "This device can offer a rapid return on investment."
