The Cynergy Multiplex combines the versatile wavelengths of the 595nm pulsed dye laser and the 1064nm Nd:YAG laser in a single unit to treat undesirable vascular malformations and other conditions. It is the first laser device that can produce two wavelengths from the same handpiece sequentially, or produce each wavelength separately.
The first wavelength, usually the 595nm pulsed dye laser, alters the targeted hemoglobin in treated vessels to methemoglobin, which is more susceptible to treatment with 1064nm wavelength. The synchronized pulses of each laser allow for reduced energies to be delivered, which should minimize side effects such as bruising, swelling, and pain. The pulse timing in the Multiplex mode can also be altered depending on the depth of the lesion.
The sequential pulses are delivered more rapidly for more superficial vascular lesions and with much longer delay for deeper lesions to prevent overheating. This revolutionary laser efficiently treats a complete range of vascular lesions including broken blood vessels, rosacea, port-wine stains, spider veins on the face and trunk, and leg veins.
