SAN FRANCISCO, April 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DEKA M.E.L.A., a leading developer and distributor of a wide range of light-based aesthetic systems, announced that it has received additional FDA clearance for its Synchro REPLA:Y® family of Laser Systems, allowing for unprecedented Maximum Power of 180W and a 24 mm spot size, the largest available in the industry.

The Synchro REPLA:Y® family of Laser Systems consists of  three powerful and innovative aesthetic workstations:

  • The flagship Synchro REPLA:Y Excellium 3.4 includes the first 3 Hz, 125 W, 755 mm Alexandrite laser, an extremely powerful 180W, 1064 nm Nd:Yag laser and a FT Pulsed Light with 5 interchangeable filters.
  • The Synchro REPLA:Y Excellium HP, an extremely powerful 180W, 1064 Nd:Yag laser, with FT Pulsed Light capabilities.
  • The Synchro REPLA:Y Premium 1.4.2., equipped with the first 3 Hz, 125 W, 755 mm Alexandrite laser and FT Pulsed Light capabilities.

Each station is designed and mainly dedicated to offer high-speed, stable long-term, or permanent hair reduction, and treatment of PFB (Pseudo Folliculitis Barbae). Additionally, the Synchro REPLA:Y family of Laser Systems offers high-speed, effective and safe treatment of benign pigmented lesions, wrinkles and photocoagulation of dermatological vascular lesions.

Unrivaled Speed and Power: The Synchro REPLA:Y family of Laser Systems offers the first Alexandrite laser working at 3 Hz (three pulses per second), while the industry standard is still 2 Hz. Equipped with the fast (3 Hz) and powerful (125 W) 755 nm Alexandrite laser, coupled with the unmatched characteristics of the new 180 W, 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser and with the largest available spot size (24 mm) in the industry, the Synchro REPLA:Y Excellium 3.4 is the most powerful and fastest platform available for effective, safe and rapid hair reduction, on all Fitzpatrick skin types and tanned skin, including photocoagulation of vascular and treatment of benign pigmented lesions and wrinkles.

Advanced Technology for high performance and safe treatments: The Synchro REPLA:Y family of Laser Systems' new maximum power (180 W) allows for unparalleled maximum fluence with the largest spot sizes, enabling physicians to offer very high-speed treatments efficiently. Additionally, the Synchro REPLA:Y family of Laser Systems utilizes a characteristic flat top beam profile, the "Top-Hat Spot Size Technology." By providing an even distribution of energy on the entire spot of the laser beam and virtually eliminating the risks of over or under treating the skin, this paramount feature lets physicians treat effectively and safely. Moreover, the Alexandrite laser source can deliver energetic pulses with pulse length from 2 ms, down to 0.2 ms: another remarkable advantage for vascular and pigmented lesions treatments, that makes the Synchro REPLA:Y family of Laser Systems true high performance and unrivaled multi-wavelength workstations.

"The Synchro REPLA:Y, with 180W of maximum power and the largest available spot size of 24mm, is the fastest in the industry. The 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 a speed of 3 pulses per second, is less painful than the one I can deliver with other lasers and quite tolerable. I am thrilled to be the first hair reduction specialist in North America to employ such a novel device in my business," said Chris Karavolas, President of New York State Association of Laser Hair Removal Specialists; Founding Board Member of the International Association of Laser Aesthetics (IALA); Owner of "Romeo & Juliette – Laser Hair Removal Center," New York, NY.

"As a double board certified Dermatologist, international educator and lecturer on lasers and energy based devices, it is my business to know about emerging technologies. At conferences around the world, during laser courses and even in my own office, I am constantly asked about various technologies. In searching for the very best devices for my own patients, I evaluate many variables, including safety and efficacy and the technical specifications are fairly important in the evaluation process, too. The Synchro REPLA:Y by DEKA offers 2 wavelengths and an intense pulsed light hand piece. The energies, varying pulse widths and pulse shape and the largest spot size in the industry (24 mm) represent a technological advancement that results in faster, better tolerated and more reliable treatments. I am very excited to offer the benefits of the Synchro REPLA:Y to my patients," said Martin Kassir, M.D., F.A.A.D., Double Board Certified in Dermatology & Internal Medicine, Fellow ASLMS, Director of "Kassir Dermatology," Dallas, TX.
