Dermatologists and the air purifier's effectiveness

AIR ET SANTÉ supports dermatologists

AIR ET SANTÉ has been working with dermatologists for several years.

The use of therapeutic lasers to treat patients' ailments, or the use of aesthetic lasers in the case of hair removal, will produce a vaporisation of fine particles in the atmosphere and generate odors from the treatment.

The air purifier removes the fine particles from the atmosphere and adsorbs part of the odors. Controlled by its fine particle detectors or odor detectors, it adjusts its operation to continuously purify the air in the consulting room.

The benefits of air purifiers have become clear to everyone following the COVID-19 pandemic. It eliminates bacteria and viruses and therefore reduces the risk of cross-transmission. It eliminates bacteria and viruses and reduces the risk of cross-transmission between patients and practitioners during treatment, but also limits the risk of contamination in the waiting room between patients.

1) What is a dermatologist?

A dermatologist is a specialized physician. He completed 6 years of medical studies to which he added 4 years of specialized training to become a "dermatologist".

He is a skin specialist, the envelope that protects us from external aggressions such as the sun, pollution, but also from bacteria, viruses and parasites that can cause an infection.

A dermatologist is also a venereologist; he treats skin disorders, and is competent for mucous membranes, genitals, hair and nails.

Dermatology can be therapeutic, but also aesthetic and cosmetic. The dermatologist is competent for every skin aspect, and as such, he can also deal with wrinkle and hair removal (depilation).

Lasers are widely used in dermatology and are one of the major instruments used by dermatologists to treat angiomas as well as pigmentary lesions or pilosity.

2) Why go see a dermatologist?

For therapeutic reasons :

  • For detection and follow-up of skin cancers, also known as melanoma or carcinoma, 
  • To treat acne conditions,
  • The removal of lesions, warts, moles,
  • For babies and small children to treat eczema,
  • Mycoses, furuncles,
  • Psoriasis,
  • Pelades.

For aesthetic and cosmetic reasons :

  • Laser hair removal,
  • Laser resurfacing,
  • Laser angiomas,
  • Laser skin remodeling,
  • Laser couperose,
  • Varicose veins with laser,
  • Laser treatment of scars,
  • Laser pigmentation spots,
  • Laser tattoo removal.

3) Why is an air purifier useful for dermatologists?

The use of lasers results in the release of fumes, the projection of fine particles and the production of "burnt" odors.

Our air purifiers eliminate vaporized particles in the atmosphere thanks to their "absolute" HEPA class 13 or HEPA 14 filters. They adsorb a part of the odors thanks to the activated carbon filter contained in our filters.

All our air purifiers are equipped with 4 to 5 levels of filtration: a pre-filter to protect the medical filtration system and avoid clogging too quickly, a HEPA level 13 or even HEPA 14 filter to retain ultra-fine particles of the PM 2.5 type, an activated carbon filter, that works effectively on volatile organic compounds, i.e. gases and odors. Finally, they have additional devices that can be activated at the initiative of our customers: A purification by photocatalysis with UV lamps as well as an ionizer.

The COVID-19 pandemic has recently demonstrated the importance of the fight against viral and bacterial transmissions. Our air purifiers also remove pathogens, viruses and bacteria from the atmosphere. They help reduce the risk of transmission between the practitioner and his patient, as well as between patients in the waiting room.

The air purifier has proven its effectiveness in
