BRISBANE, Calif., March 28, 2007 — Cutera, Inc.® (Nasdaq: CUTR), a leading provider of laser and other light-based aesthetic systems for practitioners worldwide, today announced FDA clearance for its new laser, Pearl, with proprietary YSGG technology. Pearl is cleared for the treatment of wrinkles and represents the first application of the 2790 nm wavelength for cosmetic dermatology.
During treatment, Pearl removes a portion of the epidermis with a controlled thermal effect. The thermal effect creates a natural protective dressing on the skin to minimize downtime during the restorative process.
