Free laser treatments change lives


Candela Corporation provided free “life-changing” Vbeam laser treatments to over 40 children and adults with birthmarks, port wine stains and other vascular related skin conditions to kick-off the 18th annual Vascular Birthmarks Foundation Conference in New York last week.

The treatments were performed by Dr Roy Geronemus, a leading cosmetic dermatologist and director at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York, the day before the conference officially got underway.

Candela CEO Geoffrey Crouse said the company is committed to developing and enhancing innovative technological solutions that change lives.

“Our partnership with the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation and Dr Geronemus reflects this commitment.

“We were honoured to offer these pro-bono treatments with the gold standard Vbeam Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) to continue our mission to improve patients’ quality of life.

“In addition, the recent FDA clearance of our newest and most advanced PDL, the Vbeam Prima, demonstrates our continued 30-year commitment to advancing the science and improving clinical results in vascular lesions.”
