- 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 Multiplex Laser is manufactured by Cynosure, Inc., Westford, MA
- 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.
