YOKNEAM, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - March 15, 2012) - Syneron Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ: ELOS), www.syneron.com, the global leader in medical aesthetic products and technology, plans a significant presence at the 2012 American Academy of Dermatology conference to be held on March 16-20, 2012 in San Diego, California. Syneron will recognize the twentieth anniversary of the invention of Intense Pulse Light -- a milestone that remains a beacon of the company's commitment to innovation and new advancements in medical aesthetics. "Intense Pulse Light technology, patented by our founder Shimon Eckhouse, Ph.D, launched a new era of technological advancements that dramatically expanded the market and served to meet the multicultural demand more safely and effectively," said Louis P. Scafuri, Chief Executive Officer of Syneron. "This progress led to the development of Syneron and its principal lives on in many of our products to date."
The development of IPL in 1992 paved the road for new theories that provided safe and predictable treatment options for patients, regardless of skin type, including Syneron's own proprietary technology -- electro-optical synergy or elōs®. "I've been fortunate to be a part of the evolution of medical aesthetics starting from the days when it was really the best kept secret in dermatology to the worldwide phenomenon that it is today," said Vince Afsahi, M.D. board certified Dermatologist and Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the University of Southern California. "Having worked with many technologies in my practice I've always leaned towards Syneron's elōs based solutions because it caters to a growing segment in my practice that delivers excellent treatment options due to the high safety profile of this technology."
Paved with innovation and built on success, Syneron presses forward on the Road to Rejuvenation with the recent release of eTwo™ -- a tabletop platform device that pairs Syneron's proprietary elōs technology with the company's globally successful Sublative™ treatment for the industry's most comprehensive solution to facial rejuvenation. "Sublative has been my go-to application for quite some time now -- the versatility of treatment options of Sublative coupled with its consistent response rate on all skin types and age groups makes it a joy to work with," said Stephen Eubanks, M.D. board certified Dermatologist and Medical Director at the Dermatology & Laser Center in Denver, Colorado. "The addition of Sublime™ adds a promising new feature to the platform that allows us to bulk heat the deep layers of the skin taking over where Sublative leaves off."
According to Shimon Eckhouse, Ph.D, founder and Chairman of the Board of Syneron, "The concept that drove the invention of IPL was further improved with the development of elōs and continues on today with products like the eTwo. We aim to offer exciting and innovative solutions that deliver predictable and safe results to better meet the needs and expectations of our medical aesthetic community."
Attendees at the 2012 American Academy of Dermatology conference can view elōs based technologies, the eTwo and the complete product offerings by Syneron and Candela at booth #1711. This includes:
GentleMax Pro®: building upon the Gold Standard technology of the Gentle Family™ of lasers, the new GentleMax Pro offers more power and versatility than any other multi-wavelength hair reduction device. GentleMax Pro features the industry's largest spot size of 18mm coupled with tremendous fluence options and pulse width range making it a must have device for any thriving laser hair removal practice.
CO2RE™: the latest and best of current CO2 treatment methodologies with a revolutionary new feature known as Fusion Fractional Mode. This option allows practitioners the ability to treat both superficial and deep skin layers simultaneously with precision-control over the intensity, pattern and depth of ablation without multiple handpieces, optical spots or multiple pass techniques.
evolastin™: the world's first energy-based dermal remodeling procedure, powered by ePrime™. This procedure precisely targets and delivers measured radio frequency (RF) energy directly into the deep dermis to achieve results unlike any other energy-based procedure on the market. With a clinically validated 100% patient response rate*, evolastin is fast becoming recognized as a major step forward in facial aesthetics.
elure Advanced Skin Lightening™ System: winner of allure Magazine's 'Best of Beauty' award in the "Big Breakthroughs" category in 2011. The first and only skin lightening topical that employs Melanozyme™, the novel natural enzyme found only in elure to improve appearance by temporarily reducing melanin.
