We are proud to continue our legacy of changing lives as innovators in the laser tattoo removal industry and are excited to introduce the Astanza Duality Signature. The Duality Signature will replace the popular Duality model, and there will also be upgrade opportunities for those who have previously purchased a Duality from Astanza. Keep reading to learn more about the device’s advanced laser technology, specifications, handpieces, and treatment capabilities that can aid you in expanding or launching your aesthetic laser business.
Overview of the Astanza Duality Signature
The Duality, which has been a core product in Astanza’s product line for several years, is being replaced by the versatile Duality Signature. Similar to its predecessor, The Duality Signature produces the popular 1064 nm and 532 nm wavelengths to effectively remove the most common ink colors (black, brown, red, orange, and yellow) found in tattoos. Practitioners can now offer more effective treatments with the updated nanosecond technology.
Unlike previous Duality models, the Duality Signature has three pulse mode options to choose from. The most common pulse mode, Q-switched mode, is the traditional method of removing tattoos. The laser produces one intense 6 ns pulse, creating a higher peak power than a long-pulsed laser. The two additional pulse modes, Opti-Pulse and Photo-Thermal mode, help expand the treatment capabilities of the Duality Signature. The Opti-Pulse mode distributes the fluence across two impulses of 6 ns each, creating a gentler treatment for some applications due to the 150 µs rest period between pulses. Lastly, the Photo-Thermal mode is a long (300 µs) single pulse done with the 1064 nm wavelength, where the desired target structure is heated.
The laser’s handpieces are created with OptiBeam II technology, guaranteeing a precise beam profile to direct energy deep into the skin while maintaining a safe pulse for all skin types. Unlike other devices, the Duality Signature does not have dye handpieces, removing the cost of any consumables and the risk of decreasing the wavelength’s efficacy.
Choose Your Handpieces
OptiBeam II Handpieces
The Duality Signature comes standard with three spot sizes: 2 x 2 mm, 3 x 3 mm, and 4 x 4 mm. These handpieces can be used to perform laser tattoo removal treatments and benign pigmented lesion removals. There are two optional handpieces for larger treatment areas available: 5 x 5 mm and 7 x 7 mm. All of these handpieces use a microlens array to produce a homogeneous energy distribution during every pulse.
Expanding your practice’s services to more than tattoo removal and benign pigmented lesion removal, the Duality Signature has optional microbeam handpieces with a fractionated beam that can be used with both wavelengths. The 9 mm HC handpiece creates a gentler treatment due to its larger energy distribution area, commonly used for benign pigmentation treatments. For skin resurfacing, such as treating wrinkles and scars, the 8 mm DF handpiece is recommended.
Check your state’s regulations to find out what treatments can be performed.
Expand Your Services
If you’re an aesthetic laser business or med spa looking to upgrade your laser technology to a more powerful, effective, and multi-purpose device, the Duality Signature could be for you.
Benign Pigmented Lesions
As mentioned, the standard handpieces can treat benign pigmented lesions such as café-au-lait spots, Ota nevus, and solar lentigines, in addition to tattoo removal. Adding this treatment to your list of services is a great way to attract new clientele and increase your business’s revenue. This treatment can cost around $350 per session, typically taking 1 to 3 sessions for complete removal. With an average session duration of 15 minutes, a practitioner has the potential to earn $1,400 per hour.
If you’re a med spa owner, you want a laser device that is efficient and can help you save time between treatments. With the 9 mm HC microbeam handpiece, you can offer skin resurfacing services and add to your revenue streams. A common cost for a skin resurfacing treatment is $400 per session. To see complete results, a patient will need around 2 to 5 sessions, each one taking around 20 minutes. Therefore, you could earn $1,200 per hour.
