The history of Syneron is one of innovation. With the limitations of intense pulse light (IPL) and conventional laser systems as his inspiration, master physicist, Dr. Michael Kreindel, was determined to come up with a better solution for medical aesthetics. After years of research and development, he created elôs (Electro-optical Synergy), the revolutionary technology platform that powers all Syneron medical aesthetics systems. Together, he and his long-time colleague, Dr. Shimon Eckhouse, the inventor and patent holder of IPL, founded Syneron in 2000. Five product families were soon launched from this robust and promising pipeline and the stage was set for a new industry leader. Since then, Syneron has been setting new standards in safety and efficacy for a wide range of aesthetic procedures.
While lasers were invented in the mid 60s, it wasn’t until the mid 70s that the technology had evolved enough to be used safely for dermatological applications. In 1991, physicist Dr. Shimon Eckhouse invented and patented intense pulsed light (IPL), a significant advancement over conventional lasers. A quantum leap occurred in the year 2000, when master physicist, Dr. Michael Kreindel, “combined” IPL technology with bi-polar radio frequency (RF) to create electro-optical synergy or elôs as it is now known. This revolutionary technology platform soon set new standards in safety and efficacy for a wide range of medical aesthetic procedures. Learn more about elôs Technology.
