The new Vbeam Prima laser system takes Candela's "gold standard" 595 nm Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) to the next level
WAYLAND, Mass., April 8, 2019 /CNW/ -- Candela Corporation, a leading global medical aesthetic device company, announces the introduction of the Vbeam® Prima™ laser system in Canada, representing the latest innovation in 30 years of clinical leadership for the Vbeam pulsed dye laser (PDL) franchise. The Vbeam Prima has an advanced 595 nm pulsed dye laser, a 1064 nm wavelength, two dermal cooling options and a number of other enhancements advancing pulsed dye applications. The Vbeam Prima device is the go-to laser for vascular conditions and effectively treats a broad range of skin conditions, including rosacea, port wine stains, acne, leg veins, spider veins, scars, benign pigmented lesions, wrinkles, warts, stretch marks and photo aging. The Vbeam Prima laser system was cleared by Health Canada and is now commercially available.
"The introduction of the Vbeam Prima laser system demonstrates Candela's commitment to trusted scientific technology, breakthrough innovation and proven clinical results," said Geoffrey Crouse, Chief Executive Officer of Candela. "Through extensive system performance testing in a number of clinics treating hundreds of patients, the Vbeam Prima device meets the highest performance and quality standards."
The Vbeam laser has been long considered the "gold standard" for the device-based treatment of rosacea and has been successfully used for the treatment of port wine stains and vascular anomalies in both adults and infants. The new Vbeam Prima laser system builds on this legacy of success with advanced features that offer an improved treatment experience and help physicians and their patients achieve better results.
"Through the rigorous testing that has been conducted, the Vbeam Prima laser system offers new innovation and clinically-proven breakthrough technology that has further increased patient satisfaction and will have a great impact on their overall quality of life," stated Dr. Sheetal Sapra of ICLS Dermatology & Plastic Surgery in Oakville, Ontario. "Whether the patient concern is rosacea, port wine stains, facial and spider veins, or scars, the Vbeam Prima laser has taken the technology to the next level, offering more versatility and increased capabilities."
In a recent clinical study, the Vbeam Prima laser system was analyzed for the treatment of facial redness and rosacea symptoms, which were significantly reduced from moderate to mild after four treatments1. Additionally, the Vbeam Prima device was tested for Poikiloderma of Civatte, with an average improvement of 49 percent after four treatment sessions2.
"The Vbeam Perfecta laser has been one of the most popular devices in our practice due to its unparalleled record of proven results in conjunction with its wide range of clinical applications. Now with the launch of the new Vbeam Prima laser system, we can provide our patients with even faster, more efficient treatments," said Dr. B. Kent Remington, Board Certified Dermatologist at Remington Laser Dermatology Centre in Calgary, Canada. "I am extremely excited about the advancements provided by the new Prima, especially the 50% greater power enabling a 15 mm spot size, both contact and cryogen cooling, once-daily calibration3, and extended dye life thanks to a completely re-designed system," added Dr. Todd K. Remington, Board Certified Dermatologist at Remington Laser Dermatology Centre in Calgary, Canada.
