Lumenis announces today the launch of OPT-IN, a new service and warranty package exclusively for US owners of Lumenis One, the leading multi-application platform. The OPT-IN program is effective immediately, and available to all new and current owners at no additional charge to the existing warranty and service contracts.
"OPT-IN is the next step in our continued support of the industry-leading Lumenis One system," said Robert Mann, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Aesthetic Business Unit. "This premium service package was conceived in direct response to physician feedback. Our commitment to provide great service and trusted results drives everything we do, from investing in research and development to delivering new treatment systems, to the launch of this extraordinary service program."
About OPT-IN Coverage
Designed to give users comprehensive coverage, the OPT-IN benefits make the Lumenis One system virtually trouble-free, maintenance-free, downtime resistant and protected against costly interruptions of IPL, LightSheer and Nd:YAG treatment capabilities. Regardless of age or treatment head shot count, the service package includes service and support for all treatment heads, complementary software upgrades, two preventative maintenance service visits, and discounted consumables during the life of the service contract or warranty period. OPT-IN is available to owners of Lumenis One platforms in the US only, with expansion into other markets planned for the future.
"We're very proud to provide our Lumenis One customers this robust service offering to ensure that their IPL capability is never interrupted," added Mr. Mann. "We feel confident standing behind the preeminent multi-application platform with this leading service package in the industry."
Lumenis One Continues to Lead IPL Category

Users can provide faster and more efficient treatments for observable, consistently excellent results.

Goldman, Founder and Medical Director of Goldman, Butterwick, Keel Cosmetic Laser Dermatology and Volunteer Clinical Professor of Dermatology/Medicine at UC San Diego.
