Asclepion Laser Technologies: Steady growth enables investment in the future
On September 9, an extension to the main building of Asclepion Laser Technologies GmbH was inaugurated and the usable floor space almost doubled by a further 2,500 m2 during a big celebration. In the new three-storey building, production and storage areas, a clean room as well as a special area for technical service and a state-of-the-art training center for customer training were created. A cafeteria, fitness area and a roof terrace also provide an attractive working environment for the employees and a relaxed learning atmosphere for the Academy’s guests. The ever-increasing demands of laser medicine and Asclepion’s continued growth make this necessary.

With pioneering spirit to the worldwide technology leader for innovative lasers
Asclepion Laser Technologies is a pioneer of medical-cosmetic lasers. Founded in 1977, it became known worldwide as Aesculap-Meditec GmbH. A joint venture with part of Jenoptik took place in 1995 and in 2002 the company changed its owner and company name to Carl Zeiss Meditec AG. Since there was a strong focus on ophthalmology from this point, today’s Asclepion Laser Technologies GmbH found a new partner in 2003: Florence-based El.En. Group acquired the dermatological, surgical and dental laser division. A lively cooperation among the partners made the Jena-based company the worldwide technology leader for innovative lasers in aesthetic medicine and surgery.
Partner for dermatologically and aesthetically oriented practices, institutes and clinics
With its comprehensive range of services, Asclepion sees itself as a competent partner for dermatologically and aesthetically oriented practices, institutes and clinics. Almost all aesthetic skin treatments are possible with Asclepion products: removal of tattoos, pigment spots, spider veins, scars, varicose veins or hair – to name just a few applications. Under the branding “JenaSurgical”, Asclepion offers laser systems for general and precision microsurgery, e.g. for prostate or bladder stone treatment.
Numerous clinical studies on various technologies confirm and secure the success of the treatment. All medical lasers from Asclepion are CE certified and are also certified by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or undergoing testing.
Service – Training – Application – digital and on-site thanks to WEBCLUB and ACADEMY
The Asclepion WEBCLUB provides information for doctor and patient around the clock and is the direct connection to Asclepion. The success of the treatment depends not only on the quality of the product but also on the therapist. Accordingly, Asclepion relies on well-trained and competent specialists. That is why the company offers a wide range of workshops, seminars and training courses as part of the Asclepion ACADEMY. The training centre in Jena is a renowned competence centre. In order to be allowed to work with a laser, a certificate of competence is required by law. Asclepion has been organizing the corresponding seminars for more than 20 years – in which more than 3,000 users have already participated. Together with competent speakers and lecturers, the diverse application possibilities of laser technology are presented and well-founded specialist knowledge is imparted. Furthermore, the Asclepion reference centers are open to interested physicians all over the world.
