Antares is a device microcontrolled by photobiomodulation therapy and was developed for use in different areas of health and aesthetics. It has the possibility of operation with single applicators (probes) and applicators with laser and/or LED groups (cluster), which offer a new dimension of light therapy.
New generation of LEDs
New technology with higher power, lower light beam divergence and quasimonochromaticity, with cluesters with 13 diodes and powers that can reach up to 6500 mW, which allows treatment in large body areas and shorter application time.
Better uniformity of light distribution
In the development of Antares, studies and research were carried out to obtain the best distribution of Light in the treatment area, so that the entire region receives the same energy density.
For this, we use a differentiated technology in the distribution of LEDs in the Clusters, ensuring the ideal distance between them and the skin.
Exclusive reflective technology
The Antares Clusters feature the exclusive reflective technology, optimizing the concentration of Light at the application site, which allows for better clinical results.
Antares has several
scientifically based protocols for use in treatments in the area of:
- Facial Aesthetics;
- Body aesthetics;
- Hair Therapy;
2C & 3C
Another unique feature of Antares is the 2C & 3C, which are differentiated protocols that allow combining different wavelengths in the same treatment session.
- Works in different structures and depths
- More practicality in calls
- Most effective results
Light emission check
Antares has a verification system, so that the emission of LED/laser radiation from the applicator to be used is validated before use. Whenever the equipment is turned on or the applicator is reconnected or replaced, it will be necessary to carry out the emission check only once before use.
Clusters & probes
Antares features different Clusters and Probes applicators, which have been designed to meet clinical needs with different configurations and combinations of LEDs and Lasers and different sizes for different body areas.

Positioning probes and clusters
For the application technique, place the probe or cluster in contact with the skin without pressing it. Observe the correct way of handling in the examples below:
During photobiomodulation with Antares light therapy, programming the appropriate wavelength and dose, it is possible to target the interaction with structural molecules known as chromophores and obtain significant clinical results.
Prepare the patient for therapy
- The patient should be positioned comfortably according to the orientation (sitting or lying position);
- There must be a minimum distance of 20cm between the operator/patient and the equipment during treatment;
- Examine the skin and clean the treatment area and clean the area with water, mild soap and 0.5% alcoholic chlorhexidine or 70% medical grade alcohol;
- After cleaning the skin, it is necessary to wait for the product used to evaporate, not bringing risks to the patient;
- Clean the probe or cluster before and after each session, as per the applicator cleaning guidelines described in these instructions for use;
- It is also important, after each application, to clean the applicator lens with cotton wool slightly moistened with 0.5% alcoholic chlorhexidine or 70% alcohol;
- Examine the skin again after treatment;
- Properly preparing the patient’s skin for light therapy allows more energy from the light beam to reach specific target areas and reduces the risk of skin irritation.
- Acne treatment;
- Treatment of hyperpigmented areas;
- Facial rejuvenation;
- Healing after plastic surgery;
- Wound healing;
- Treatment of onychomycosis;
- Photodynamic Therapy;
- Control of labial and vaginal herpes.
- Facial paralysis;
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome;
- Healing processes;
- Stimulation of microcirculation;
- Reduction of edema;
- Musculoskeletal tissue regeneration;
- Increased local circulation;
- Relief of muscle and joint pain;
- Muscle relaxation;
- Relief of muscle spasms;
- Relief of pain related to arthritis;
- Post-exercise muscle recovery;
- Increased muscle performance in physical activity.
The irradiation of low energy photons (phototherapy) by the so-called low-level laser (LLLT Low Level Laser Therapy) or by LEDT (Light Emmitting Diode Therapy) can modulate several biological processes. This phenomenon is called photobiomodulation, which can be performed using Cluster applicators for use in larger treatment areas with different wavelengths in the same applicator or Probes for point applications with specific wavelengths and powers up to 180 mW.

How do I know if the infrared probe is working?
- Perform ISSUE CHECK
- Wear protective eyewear and place the probe/cluster applicator in contact with the CHECK receiver located on top of the ANTARES.
- After verification, a message “IMISSING OK” will be displayed and the equipment will enter the option selected previously: Aesthetics, Rehabilitation, Laserpuncture, Particular or Manual selection (depending on the applicator that is connected) for use.
What is the most complete Cluster for the facial and body area?
Facial: Cluster P1
Body: Cluster G3
Does Antares do ILIB?
Yes, Antares does not come with the wristband to perform the ILIB. You can perform the technique by programming the equipment with the parameters you want and manually performing the technique.
What do I need to know to define my applicator?
- First: What is your area of expertise? Rehabilitation or Aesthetics.
- Second: How big is the area you want to treat? So you know which applicator would be ideal.
- Third: What depth of action in the tissue? To find out which wavelength/color to use.
