Candela Receives Federal Approval for Skin-Resurfacing Laser
The US Food and Drug Administration has approved Candela Corp.'s Er:YAG Skinlight laser for marketing in the US. The Wayland, Mass.-based company said that the device provides high average power and minimal thermal damage to skin. The company also recently teamed with Fotona d.d., based in the Republic of Slovenia, to sell the laser in Asia, South America, South Africa and Europe. Candela plans to market the solid-state, erbium-based system as part of its Precision series of dermatological laser products, and will develop a network of company-owned skin-care centers and spas, as well.
