Breakthrough technologies give doctors a wider range of treatment
advantages across a more diverse patient base
YOKNEAM, Israel, Feb. 3, 2011 /CNW/ -- Today Syneron Medical Ltd. (Nasdaq: ELOS), www.syneron.com, the global leader in the medical aesthetic device marketplace, with two distinct brands, Syneron and Candela Corporation, www.candelalaser.com, announced that the company will be featuring an exciting new family of aesthetic treatments at the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) 69th Annual Meeting taking place in New Orleans, LA. The newly-launched products include ePrime(TM) Energy-Based Dermal Volumizer(TM), CO2RE versatile Fractional CO2 Resurfacing System and elure(TM) Advanced Skin Lightening Technology(TM). Additionally, the revolutionary eMatrix® complete Sublative Rejuvenation® system will be the subject of several presentations at the conference, and will accompany the company's full line of devices at booth 3515.
"The top physicians in the world continue to look to Syneron and Candela for innovative solutions to the multitude of medical and aesthetic challenges in improving patients' skin quality," said Louis P. Scafuri, Chief Executive Officer of Syneron. "The newest family of products underscores the company's commitment to science, results and trust, and our dedication to working with our customers to develop technologies that will give physicians greater flexibility to treat a diverse patient base."
Following are highlights of this exciting line of products which bring forth an entirely new and diverse range of treatment categories - from wrinkle reduction to skin resurfacing and lightening:
-- ePrime Energy-Based Dermal Volumizer is yet another new and exciting
innovation from Syneron and Candela. The first minimally invasive
aesthetic device to precisely target and deliver measured radio
frequency (RF) energy directly into the deep dermis, ePrime is proven
to result in dramatic tone and volumetric improvements of the skin in
Andrea Willey, M.D., of Laser and Skin Surgery Center in Sacramento, CA, stated, "The improvement in skin tone resulting from increased volume and new collagen production is unique to ePrime and a fascinating concept to bring to light."
-- CO2RE Fractional CO2 Resurfacing System is a versatile CO2 system that
offers the unique ability to treat both superficial and deep skin
layers simultaneously with precision-control over the intensity,
pattern and depth of ablation.
"We've been very happy with the results that we've seen using CO2RE," stated Brian Zelickson, MD, of Zel Skin and Laser Specialists in Edina, MN. "It has a lot of versatility and we find it works well for both fractionated ablative resurfacing as well as traditional ablative resurfacing."
-- elure Advanced Skin Lightening Technology is the first and only
skin lightening product that improves appearance by temporarily
reducing melanin - the molecule that accumulates in the skin to cause
darkened or uneven skin tone. Melanozyme(TM), the novel natural enzyme
found only in elure, provides the pathway for a meaningful improvement
in skin appearance, with healthier, brighter, and younger-looking skin
in as little as seven days. Moreover, elure lightens the skin with no
reports of skin irritation.
"I have been most impressed with not only the significant clinical fading response I have observed with elure, but also that the product could easily be incorporated into my patients' skin care regimens without skin irritation," stated Tina Alster, MD, founding Director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery.
-- eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation is the world's first RF-only technology
for energy-based facial rejuvenation, delivering high-intensity
impact with less epidermal ablation with minimal patient downtime.
eMatrix treats skin texture and tone without skin color limitations.
"Together, Syneron and Candela are more market-responsive than ever before," continued Mr. Scafuri. "We know how to quickly innovate the safest and most effective products to meet a variety of needs and price points. These breakthrough technologies allow us to be ideally positioned to maintain our global leadership and continue to help physicians grow their practice."
