How does the Cynergy Laser Work?
The Cynergy laser is the first of its kind to combine an nd:YAG laser with a long pulse pulse-dye laser in a single device. Both of these wavelengths are effective in targeting blood, making them an excellent choice for treating vascular lesions and visible veins. The combination of the two wavelengths increases the efficacy of this device, in its ability to treat even more challenging vascular concerns like port-wine stains.
The dual wavelengths offer more efficient results in a treatment that is both safe and comfortable for patients. Many patients will see full results in a single treatment session, with minimal discomfort and no downtime after the treatment.
What does the Cynergy Laser Treat?
The Cynergy laser can treat a wide range of vascular concerns, including:
- Port-wine stains
- Telangiectasia on the face and legs

When Will I See Results?
The results of a Cynergy laser treatment typically develop soon after the treatment. In most cases, patients will see their full results in 1-2 weeks.
How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?
There is no recovery after the Cynergy laser procedure. After treatment, you should be able to resume your normal activities right away. Side effects are also minimal and will not impact your appearance or your ability to carry out your daily routine.
