Founded in 1970, Candela Lasers is a leader in the field of aesthetic laser technology. Offering a wide array of cosmetic medical devices, Candela is focused on developing safe laser treatment alternatives to more invasive options, such as electrolysis and surgical procedures. Based in Wayland, Massachusetts, Candela is recognized as a global competitor and has revolutionized the industry’s perception of laser treatment by emphasizing the importance of patient comfort. This can be seen in Candela’s Dynamic Cooling Device, or DCD, that provides skin protection during laser procedures. Additionally, Candela is behind the Serenity device which utilizes Pneumatic Skin Flattening technology to reduce pain and patient discomfort during light laser-based treatments.
In 2009, Candela successfully increased its market presence through a merger with Israel-based Syneron, a radio frequency and laser-device maker. Operating as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Syneron, Candela maintains its strong market presence while benefiting from enhanced size and resources, including comprehensive customer support, increased financing options, marketing support, and ever-increasing patient demand.
