The Cynergy Multiplex laser is the only laser of its kind. This innovative device combines two lasers: a pulsed dye laser (PDL) and a long pulse Nd:YAG laser. The pulsed dye laser is considered “the gold standard” for treating smaller, more superficial vessels. The Nd:YAG laser provides greater depth of penetration and targets larger vessels. Multiplex is a new concept that sequentially emits two optimal vascular wavelengths via a single fiber. It permits independent usage as well as their combined usage.
This device takes advantage of the chromic (color) shift of vessels during treatment. The PDL fires first causing the red vessel to turn a dusky color, a perfect target for the Nd:YAG laser which fires milliseconds later. The resulting effect is an increased treatment efficacy.
In addition, this laser can customize settings depending on vessel depth, density color, size, flow and considerations for safety and efficacy.

The Cynergy YAG (1064) laser is indicated for the coagulation of vascular and pigmented lesions.
The Cynergy PDL (585) is also indicated for periorbital and perioral wrinkles, warts and other benign cutaneous lesions
The Cynergy YAG Hair Option is indicated for laser hair removal and pseudofolliculitis barbae
Proper eye protection is provided
A Zimmer cooling device cools the skin for both thermal protection as well as comfort. The treatments feel like the effect of a rubber band snapping on the skin.
Rather than tracing vessels, a field treatment is generally performed to include the entire area prone to widened blood vessels. Small angiomas can be targeted individually.
There is some post treatment rosiness of the skin. Temporary purplish discoloration of some vessels can occur, lasting for a few days and can be covered with a concealer.
