18 SEPTEMBER 2018 | Med Esthetics INTRODUCTIONS 1 NEW AND IMPROVED PDL Syneron-Candela's Vbeam Prima 595nm pulsed dye laser system offers an additional 1,064nm wavelength to treat deep blue veins and minimize the appearance of wrinkles, plus increased maximum fl uence, contact and spray cooling, extended dye life and once-a-day calibration. "I've worked with the Vbeam platform for years, and I am extremely excited about advancements with the Prima, especially the 50% greater power enabling a 15mm spot size, both contact and spray cooling, once-a-day calibration and extended dye life thanks to a completely re-designed system," says Eric Bernstein, MD. "In a clinical study using Vbeam Prima, facial redness and rosacea symptoms were dramatically reduced after four treatments."
