FDA Approves Syneron Candela's PicoWay

The FDA has approved Syneron Candela’s PicoWay® picosecond laser for the treatment of pigmented lesions. The PicoWay® device previously received FDA clearance for the removal of tattoos in November 2014 and was launched in the U.S. late in the fourth quarter 2014. Syneron Medical Ltd. also recently received Health Canada clearance of the PicoWay® picosecond laser for the treatment of pigmented lesions and tattoo removal.
PicoWay® is a dual wavelength device, with 532nm and 1064nm wavelengths, which utilizes proprietary PicoWay® technology to generate picosecond pulses for the treatment of pigmented lesions and tattoos of all colors.
According to Eric Bernstein, MD, President of Main Line Center for Laser Surgery, “PicoWay is an innovative and exciting breakthrough. A dual wavelength Nd:YAG laser, it delivers extremely high peak-power, picosecond pulses enabling the treatment of all skin types. What this means is extremely impressive results, which translate into very happy patients.”
