WESTFORD, Mass., April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cynosure, Inc. (NASDAQ: CYNO) today announced that 21 oral abstracts and 14 e-posters are scheduled for presentation this week at LASER 2014, the 34th Annual Scientific Conference of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS). LASER 2014 takes place today through April 6 at the Phoenix Convention Center/Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona.
The 35 presentations will discuss clinical results with Cynosure's products in several key areas, including skin rejuvenation and minimally invasive treatments for laser body contouring and lower face and neck revitalization. A total of 10 presentations will focus on new potential aesthetic indications for Cynosure's flagship PicoSure Picosecond Laser Workstation, the first FDA-cleared picosecond device for the removal of tattoos and benign pigmented lesions.
"The scientific data being presented at LASER 2014 demonstrates the positive clinical outcomes of subjects treated with a number of our leading-edge technologies across a broad range of aesthetic indications," said Michael Davin, Cynosure's President and Chief Executive Officer. "The research addresses the experience with Cynosure's suite of aesthetic technology, including Precision Tx, our new minimally invasive precision laser for contouring of smaller areas as well as Cellulaze and Smartlipo for cellulite and fat removal. In addition, research will be presented on multiple studies focused on our non-invasive technology for skin rejuvenation, hyperhidrosis and hair removal."
"The data being presented on PicoSure is particularly significant, because it demonstrates the efficacy clinical investigators have seen with the device in studies of potential new applications such as skin rejuvenation, acne scarring and skin toning, areas for which we are currently pursuing regulatory clearances," Davin said. "Several of the presentations are expected to discuss the clinical experience with the FOCUS lens array, our new PicoSure energy delivery system, in stimulating collagen production and remodeling skin while treating aesthetic indications."
