The Science of MultiPlexTM
Sequential emission means that Cynergy’s sub-purpuric, pulsed-dye laser fires milliseconds before the Nd:YAG laser. This first pulse converts oxy-hemoglobin to methemoglobin, which increases the absorption coefficient for the Nd:YAG wavelength by 300–500%.2,3
Next, the Nd:YAG laser fires and is more effectively absorbed by the converted target, enabling reduced Nd:YAG fluence for enhanced patient safety. Since greater penetration depth is achieved, outcome results are also optimized.
By emitting dual wavelengths, Cynergy provides safe and effective results in less time than single-wavelength systems. For your patients, that means greater comfort and satisfaction. For you, that means greater patient throughput.
