More consolidation in the laser industry
Wednesday, February 15, 2012
Big laser companies just keep getting bigger....
This week, Cutera
, the California based laser company, announced that it had acquired laser competitor Iridex
for $5+ million, adding Iridex and Laserscope-branded devices to their stable of lasers.
Just a few months ago, Solta Medical
, the makers of Thermage
radiofrequency units and Fraxel
lasers, purchased Liposonix, the new FDA-approved fat melting technology, for $35 million.
No wonder those darn lasers are so expensive!
