Treat All Skin Types

Elite MPX gives you the advantages of two gold standard wavelengths – the 755 nm Alexandrite laser and 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser – in one system.  These wavelengths have proven long-term results for pigmented lesion removal and hair reduction, and are also perfect for treating facial and leg veins, the most common form of vascular lesions. 1,2,3,4

Multiplex Makes It Easier

The 755nm Alexandrite is great at treating lighter skinned patients (i.e., skin types I & II) and the 1064nm YAG is the choice for darker skinned patients (skin types V & VI).  But often those patients in the middle can present unique challenges.

Cynosure’s exclusive MultiPlex technology makes it easier to treat these patients.  MultiPlex sequentially delivers Alex and YAG to provide customized treatments for ‘The Middle’, providing treatments that are faster and more effective than single-wavelength treatments.

And because Multiplex allows you to select wavelength combinations (Alex/YAG, YAG/Alex) and adjust pulse durations, Multiplex also provides great treatment flexibility for lighter and darker skin types as well.  Multiplex means greater customization for each patient—and greater control for you.


Intensed Pulsed Light (IPL)

The Elite MPX is a true aesthetic workstation, featuring the option of an IPL.  Maximize your investment by offering more treatments to your patients with

  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Dyschromia
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Diffuse redness, rosacea

Elite MPX’s IPL is high powered and features 3 interchangeable filters to customize treatments.

Integrated Cooling

We’ve taken Zimmer’s SmartCool® proven air cooling technology and built it right it, saving space, increasing efficiency and making treatments easier than ever.

Another exclusive to Cynosure, integrated air cooling saves you floor space and gives you one less service contract to worry about.

Larger Spot Sizes for Faster Treatments

With standard spot sizes up to 18mm and optional 20, 22, and 24mm spots, Elite MPX helps you perform your treatments even faster and increase your throughput!
