Alex TriVantage Laser Receives Registration Approval for Brazil

The Alex TriVantage multi-wavelength, q-switched laser system produced by Candela Corporation has recently received registration approval from the Brazilian National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) to market the product throughout the country of Brazil.  Doctors in Brazil previously only had two choices for laser treatments involving the removal of pigmented lesions, tattoos, and for treating certain types of skin conditions. The Alex TriVantage system offers doctors a more technologically-advanced system that may provide better results in the long-term, and is still safe for patients of color.

Finding the right laser for ethnic skin is an ongoing challenge for many medical professionals and anti-aging specialists. Most of the laser and light energy treatments that provide exceptional results for Caucasian skin types can do more harm than good on ethnic skin. If the wrong type of laser is used on darker skin types, the result can be hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation, excessive skin irritation and severe burns.

The Alex TriVantage laser is one of the few laser systems on the market that is suitable for darker skin types. It produces three output wavelengths – 755 nm, 532 nm, and 1064 nm – so that it can be used on different types of lesions, scars and patches of pigment without causing any side effects. The Alex TriVantage system can also be used for fractional skin resurfacing treatments, fine line and wrinkle removal, and other skin rejuvenation treatments.

The Candela Corporation reports that this versatile laser can be used to remove benign pigmented lesions, freckles, sun spots, nevus of Ota/Ito, scars, certain types of birthmarks and tattoos of all colors. The system includes several different types of handpieces for easy administration, and is gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin types.More information and studies about the Candela laser system can be found on website that also features clinical bulletins and procedure videos.
