LIHTAN TECHNOLOGIES: LASER MARKETING ALLIANCE FOR DERMATOLOGY

 SAN RAFAEL, Calif., March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Lihtan Technologies Inc. (San Rafael) and Coherent Inc. (Palo Alto, Calif.) (NASDAQ: COHR) announced today the formation of a marketing partnership to distribute dermatological lasers in the United States. The alliance combines Lihtan's marketing expertise in dermatology and plastic surgery with Coherent's state-of-the-art medical equipment, providing physicians the most advanced and most suitable lasers for treating patients.
 Lihtan will take responsibility for distribution of Coherent's argon-pumped dye laser products to dermatologists and plastic surgeons. Laser light is absorbed by pigment in blemishes of the skin, lightening the marks in a gradual treatment schedule with minimal discomfort to the patient. Lasers have been used to treat skin disorders for more than 20 years.
 Lihtan is a leading marketer of medical instrumentation whose primary product is the Hexascan, a computerized laser delivery device that allows precise control of the laser beam during treatment.
 Coherent, a leader in the laser industry for 27 years, will provide engineering and production strength that will enable Lihtan to meet the medical community's growing demand for versatile dermatological laser systems.
