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!
