Syneron: elos, eLight, eMax, & LipoLite > Syneron "Bad Coupling"

My wife uses a Syneron machine and she is getting a readout that says "Bad Coupling"
Can anybody help me out with what this is referring to ?

Thank you

Holy crap. Bad Coupling is a Bad Sign that she may cause an arch burn. She needs some training classes on the basics of lasers and then Syneron training on IPLs.

She really shouldn't be operating IPL lasers until she knows what she's doing.

Did she buy a used laser?

She's a certified laser technician
Got the highest final score in the history of the school !
IMAJ in Scottsdale so she's Very good at what she does.
She's used this Syneron machine before ...
Just started showing this message.

Bad coupling means sometimes, the crystal on the handpiece may not press hard enough against the skin surface, therefore it show the bad coupling on the screen.
you are ok, not to worry.
Elos is one of the best technology out there.
reliable, relatively painless, and low maintenance.

Bad coupling appears on the screen when there not sufficient amount of conductive gel. I work with Elos laser and love it. Agree with Isaac, it is one of the best technology.
