IRVINE, Calif., March 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Syneron Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ: ELOS), a global market leader in the aesthetic medical device marketplace, will unveil expansions of technologies during the 2017 American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) meeting in Orlando, Fla. The advancements clearly demonstrate Syneron Candela's commitment to providing innovative treatment solutions for various skin and body conditions in the aesthetic and wellness marketplace.
- GentleTouch, a state-of-the-art, solid-state laser system adds CE mark approval to the FDA clearance and joins the Company's portfolio as the first and only device to combine Alexandrite and radiofrequency energies to remove hair safely. Equipped with three operating modes, GentleTouch ensures all hair removal treatments are customizable to the particular needs of each patient. The system additionally includes EverCool, a unique, patent-pending, contact-cooling method and is cleared for hair removal on all skin types (Fitzpatrick I-VI).
- PicoWay, a leading solution for tattoo removal and treatment of benign, pigmented lesions, received FDA clearance for the treatment of acne scars in Fitzpatrick Skin Types II-V for the Resolve holographic 1064 nm wavelength handpiece. By targeting acne scars with high peak power and the shortest pulses available at that wavelength, PicoWay Resolve quickly and effectively treats the appearance of acne scars with minimal patient downtime and side effects.
- UltraShape Power, the first and only non-invasive fat reduction system that uses pulsed, focused ultrasound, will be featured as the newest addition to the body contouring portfolio. When compared to the prior version of UltraShape, the UltraShape Power features a 20% increase in ultrasound power delivered to tissue and an average treatment time of 30 minutes for a typical abdomen. The FDA clinical study demonstrated more than a 30% reduction in fat thickness following a three session treatment protocol.
- Profound, recently FDA cleared to improve the appearance of cellulite, is a minimally invasive, fractional radiofrequency microneedling device. Specifically, the 25º Dermal handpiece and cartridge are used for percutaneous treatment of facial wrinkles, and the 75º SubQ handpiece and cartridge are used to improve the appearance of cellulite in patients with Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-III as supported by long-term clinical data.
"Clinical data to support the efficacy of new products, new indications and safety of our current and new portfolios will continue to be a focus of Syneron Candela," says Philippe Schaison, CEO of Syneron Candela, North America. "Recent advancements of UltraShape Power, GentleTouch, PicoWay and Profound illustrate Syneron Candela's dedication to finding innovative solutions for a variety of patients' aesthetic needs."
