  • Elite MPX Multiplex 755nm/1064nm for the treatment of leg veins

  • Why Multiplex (MPX)?Sequential firing of two gold standard wavelengths just 10ms apart755nm Alex turns the oxyhemoglobin to methemoglobin in the targeted blood vesselMethemoglobin has a higher optical absorption1064nm Nd:YAG is now more efficiently absorbed (300-500% better absorption)Blending in 755nm Alex allows for a reduction in the deeper penetrating 1064nm Nd:YAG a more comfortable treatment for your patient

  • MPX for leg veins - considerationsSkin types I-IIIAlways do a test spot755nm Alex FIRST followed by 1064nm Nd:YAGIntegrated chiller on high (cool packs optional)7mm spot size for optimal penetration20-25J/cm2 of Alex and 40-60J/cm2 of YAGPulse width 20-40ms

  • Before & After (6 weeks post 1 Tx)Spot Size: 7mmFluence: Alex/YAG: 20/50J/cm2Pulse Duration: 20/20msTreated vessels circled in white

  • Before & After (4 weeks post 1 Tx)Spot Size: 7mmFluence: Alex/YAG: 23/55J/cm2Pulse Duration: 20/20msTreated vessels circled in white
