- Candela Corp., a Syneron company based here, announced Feb. 10 that China’s State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) has approved Candela’s Alex TriVantage multi-wavelength laser system and the GentleMax multiple wavelength workstation for sale throughout the People’s Republic of China.

A statement issued by Candela says receipt of the SFDA certificates will allow the company to begin the sales process and launch official marketing programs for these products.

The Candela statement quotes Syneron CEO Louis P. Scafuri as saying, “The Alex TriVantage is our first Q-switched alexandrite laser to be approved in China. With its unique ‘Laser-Pumped-Laser’ technology and GentleMax’s multiple wavelengths and uses, a greater number of physicians will be able to offer a wider variety of services for conditions with fewer devices. Moreover, this approval enables us to offer a more complete range of highly effective aesthetic solutions in the world’s largest market.”
