DEKA Medical won 510(k) clearance from the FDA for its Synchro REPLA:Y laser. The device is indicated for the treatment of a variety of aesthetic treatments.
San Francisco-based DEKA specializes in laser aesthetic devices for cosmetic procedures such as laser hair removal and treating benign pigmented lesions. The new Synchro system features a variety of light sources that can remove hair and perform skin treatments such as rejuvenation and treatment of vascular lesions. The device also features a cooling system that aims to help reduce recovery time.
"The Synchro REPLA:Y is the fastest, most powerful laser, with one of the biggest spot sizes in the industry," New York State Assn. of Laser Hair Removal Specialists president Chris Karavolas said on behalf of the company. "The Synchro REPLA:Y’s extreme versatility and the multiple hand pieces allow me to split the beam and the pulse to micro tune the treatment to each patient’s needs. Due to the uniqueness of the pulse shape, the treatment, even at speed of 3 pulses per second, is less painful than the one I can deliver with other lasers and quite tolerable."
