About us


breakthrough innovation for dermatology skin ablation with key advantages over current methods:

  • Tests with an existing prototype show an effective and low pain treatment with concomitant antiinfective cooling of wound
  • Very easy and safe use, also by non medical personnel and cost competitive.

coolPen addresses indications with high market potential such as the treatment of scars, removal of tattoos, seborrheic keratosis (age related skin lesions), actinic keratosis (skin cancers) and wound care.

Device engineering and development plans towards approvals and mass production were developed with Seleon GmbH, a global leader in Medtech engineering (clients: GE Medical, Draeger, Zeiss, Fresenius).

The Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU, school of dermatology) in Munich headed by Prof. Dr. Thomas Ruzicka is advising through the design phase and standing by to lead the scientific board of the company and perform the necessary clinical studies.

A functional prototype has been built. IP filings are being generated, initial FTO is positive. Current plan to get coolPen approved for launch within 24 months.

The team consists of experienced Medtech entrepreneurs and clinicians with a track record for execution and market success. The inventor of the technology is actively involved in the engineering process.

With aesthetiCare GmbH founded, team built, prototype developed, IP filings being generated, the company is raising seed fund to achieve feasibility milestone within ~7 months
