Lynton Lasers is a long-established manufacturer and distributor of high technology equipment for medical and cosmetic therapies.
The company had developed new technologies for a laser based system, capable of providing over 10 different skin and hair treatments. Lynton needed to stand out in the market with an elegant design, appropriate for contemporary salon environments.
In a crowded sector, dominated by Far-East imports, communicating efficacy via under-stated simplicity is critical to maintaining premium market positioning.
However, IPL systems are complex assemblies. Thermal management of high-voltage electronics, with water-based cooling and touch-screen interfaces in close proximity makes for challenging engineering.
Our team had to carefully manage the architecture to ensure safe and intuitive use and reduce risk during transit, maintenance and operation.
Working through a series of options, in model and visual form, Lucid’s team developed a clean, clinical aesthetic integrated with a robust, easy to assemble and service structure.
Extensive dialogue with Lynton’s technical and marketing teams helped accelerate time to market and refine the user experience.
As with most Lucid projects, our designers used 3D CAD and detailed prototypes to provide unambiguous engineering design to manufacturers in the UK and Far-East.
