Syneron-Candela Merger aftermath

This past week Syneron, a leader in the laser business, purchased and merged with Candela another titan in the laser industry. Although on the surface this is simply another merger, to those of us who have been practicing laser medicine and surgery, this is no small marriage. Candela for all intensive purposes put today’s laser technology on the map. The Candela pulsed dye laser, developed twenty-five years ago, remains the gold standard for the treatment of children’s portwine stains. This company also manufactures quality devices for laser hair removal, acne treatments and a variety of other skin problems.

Syneron is chaired by the founder (Shimon Eckhouse) of today’s intense pulsed light (IPL) technology. If Candela began the current era of laser technology, Mr. Eckhouse is directly responsible for the currently used hundreds of thousands of IPL devices. Syneron has now also combined radiofrequency and light based technologies as well as developed exciting new radiofrequency based devices.

The merger of Candela and Syneron represents a marriage of the greatness of the past in laser technology with the present in light based devices. The future for both physicians and patients will only be bettered by this union.
