Alma Lasers Announces FDA Clearance of the UniForm Handpiece


1/26/2009 10:58:32 AM

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill., Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Alma Lasers Ltd. ("Alma"), a leader in laser, light and radiofrequency-based aesthetic devices, announced today the FDA clearance and immediate availability of the UniForm handpiece. The UniForm is the fifth module available on the Accent(TM) XL radiofrequency device. The UniForm has received FDA clearance for "the temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite."

The UniForm handpiece is comprised of Alma's propriety UniPolar technology for the delivery of RF therapeutic heat into the dermal and subdermal tissue, accompanied by a mechanical massager component. The mechanical component increases circulation in the subcutaneous tissues producing superior results.

"We are extremely excited to announce the FDA's clearance of the UniForm handpiece as it offers patients a consistent way to reduce cellulite with no downtime or discomfort," said Howard Kelly, CEO of Alma Lasers. "This most recent regulatory achievement allows us to continue offering innovative and effective solutions for all physicians while furthering Alma's success in the aesthetics industry."

The UniForm handpiece incorporates Alma Lasers' IN-Motion Technology that ensures the session is easy, fast and comfortable. IN-Motion Technology gradually heats the layers of skin to the target therapeutic temperature, so there is no risk of injury to the patient and allowing the procedure to be virtually pain-free.

"We have been extremely happy with the Accent(TM) XL system. Our patients have been very satisfied with the consistent results they are seeing and the fact that the treatments are fast and comfortable is an added bonus," says Karen Harkaway, M.D., Board Certified Dermatologist. "Of all the RF systems on the market, I feel the Accent(TM) XL offers the widest breadth of treatment options and the most consistent results."
