What is Syneron?

Syneron®’s full spectrum of non-invasive and minimally-invasive clinical applications Non-invasive and minimally-invasive aesthetic procedures have become the fastest growing segment of the aesthetic medicine market, driven by aging baby boomers with high disposable incomes.

Powered by revolutionary elōs Technology, Syneron® Medical Aesthetic Systems address the full spectrum of non-invasive and minimally-invasive clinical applications – providing you with the tools to offer these applications to your patients.

The history of Syneron® is one of innovation. With the limitations of intense pulse light (IPL) and conventional laser systems as his inspiration, master physicist, Dr. Michael Kreindel, was determined to come up with a better solution for medical aesthetics. After years of research and development, he created elōs (Electro-optical Synergy), the revolutionary technology platform that powers all Syneron® medical aesthetics systems.  Together, he and his long-time colleague, Dr. Shimon Eckhouse, the inventor and patent holder of IPL, founded Syneron® in 2000. Five product families were soon launched from this robust and promising pipeline and the stage was set for a new industry leader. Since then, Syneron® has been setting new standards in safety and efficacy for a wide range of medical aesthetic procedures.

Technology Evolution

While lasers were invented in the mid-60s, it wasn’t until the mid-70s that the technology had evolved enough to be used safely for dermatological applications. In 1991, physicist Dr. Shimon Eckhouse invented and patented intense pulsed light (IPL), a significant advancement over conventional lasers. A quantum leap occurred in the year 2000, when master physicist, Dr. Michael Kreindel, “combined” IPL technology with bi-polar radio frequency (RF) to create electro-optical synergy or elōs as it is now known. This revolutionary technology platform soon set new standards in safety and efficacy for a wide range of medical aesthetic procedures.

Laser Limitations

  • Single range
  • Single wavelength
  • Very few aesthetic applications
  • High epidermal absorption
  • Many treatments required
  • High risk of pigmentation changes and scarring

IPL Limitations

  • Single range
  • Multiple wavelength
  • Limited penetration
  • Poor targeting and selectivity
  • Continual risk of epidermal pigmentation changes and scarring

The elōs Advantage

  • Multiple range
  • Multiple wavelength
  • Extensive applications
  • Excellent targeting and selectivity
  • Improved safety for all skin types (less optical energy compared to conventional lasers and IPLs)
  • Enhanced penetration for improved treatment results
  • Minimal epidermal absorption —low risk for pigment changes and scarring
  • Additional safety features, including Active Dermal Monitoring™and RF electrode contact check

The elōs advantages in safety and efficacy are documented in many medical aesthetic practices around the globe.
