Quanta System - Italian Engineered. Hand-made Quality. Exclusively Cartessa.

On December 3, 2018, Cartessa Aesthetics announced a new partnership with Quanta System – the global leader in the development and manufacturing of premium laser technology for surgery, aesthetics and art conservation.  Since the announcement, many have wondered about Quanta System – who they are and why Cartessa is proud to represent exclusively in the US their best-in-class technologies for dermatologists, plastic surgeons, medical spas and other aesthetic professionals.

35 Years Designing Lasers for the World’s Most Cherished Masterpieces & Innovations

Cleaning the Leaning Tower of Pisa? Restoring the frescos in the Sistine Chapel? Cutting DeBeer’s diamonds. What most do not realize is that these tasks are completed with the most refined laser technologies and more specifically, lasers developed in Italy by Quanta System.

Founded in 1985, Quanta System is a 100% Italian company that offers innovative laser systems for surgery, aesthetics, veterinary and art conservation to the global market since inception.  Quanta lasers are used by researchers to access atmosphere information, including more than ten lasers positioned in Antarctica to monitor the ozone hole, and are chosen by NASA scientists for interplanetary expeditions.  

Italian Crafted. Handmade Quality.
Headquartered in Samarate, Italy, the company employs 160 people that oversee the entire process of research, development and production of over 2500 lasers per year. No small feat considering the precise attention to detail involved in hand-crafting each device. It takes a full six days to build every device by hand. Every device receives the attention of seven highly skilled technicians who install every component, test alignment, and ensure overall quality, efficacy and safety.  Where other laser manufactures use parts from other countries or assembly parts in various facilities, all the parts come from and are assembled in the production facility that spans 150,000 square feet (that’s over two and a half football fields).  Since everything comes from one facility and each Quanta System employee is trained to meet the quality standards put forth by the company, you can expect a caliber of lasers not found anywhere else. 

Quanta System is part of the El.En group, the Italian parent company of a high-tech Industrial Group listed on the STAR segment of Borsa Italiana (Italian Stock Exchange – Mid Caps – ELN.MI).

When you own a Quanta System, you are in the company of the most premium brands in the world. Their impressive roster of clients includes some of the biggest luxury brands on the planet; Prada, Swarovski, and the aforementioned DeBeers. Imagine what it takes to meet the standards that these large brands are known for, and then apply that to the quality of treatment the Quanta aesthetic lasers provide.

Expanded Reach via Cartessa Aesthetics Partnership.
The partnership between Cartessa Aesthetics and Quanta System represents the coming together of two companies focused on innovation, support and industry expertise.  Cartessa was the top choice for expanding Quanta System’s footprint in the US aesthetics market because of their elite product portfolio and boutique support model.  For Cartessa, their success is attributed to hand-selecting best-in-class products from across the globe and Quanta certainly meets this requirement.

Quanta System’s Discovery Pico Series and Evo Series Lasers have already been part of Cartessa’s portfolio.  With this agreement, Cartessa is broadening the portfolio to include the Thunder and a new Discovery Pico Derm.

  • Thunder – Brand new to our Cartessa portfolio, the Thunder offers a laser hair removal solution with 2 key features – speed and ease of use.

  • Evo Series – the Evo Series represents unparalleled customization and expandability to perform a range of treatments: hair removal, leg veins, pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, tattoo removal and wrinkles and lines.

  • Discovery Pico Series - The Discovery Pico Plus is a breakthrough in laser technology; industry-leading peak power, four separate emission modes, unique handpiece design, and three true laser wavelengths.  For those practices without a need for tattoo removal, the Discovery Pico Derm offers a best-in-class picosecond laser solution for acne scarring, wrinkles and pigmented lesions.  

The 2019 American Academy of Dermatology annual meeting will be the first time Cartessa and Quanta combine their brands, expertise and showcase these technologies.  Dermatologists, plastic surgeons and anyone in the field of aesthetics can learn more about Quanta systems at the upcoming AAD meeting (both at the convention center and evening reception on March 2nd) or at Cartessa’s three-day Philadelphia symposium March 8-10th. Reach out to a Cartessa agent to learn more.
