    LAS VEGAS, May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Alma Lasers Ltd. ("Alma Lasers"), a
 global developer and marketer of laser, light, and radiofrequency based
 aesthetic devices, announced today at THE Aesthetic Show 2008 FDA clearance
 for its Harmony(XL), the newest platform for multiple aesthetic laser and
 light treatments. The Harmony(XL) can be used to treat more than 60 popular
 aesthetic indications and applications, including acne, skin rejuvenation,
 hair removal, varicose veins, stretch marks, tattoo removal, wrinkles and
 skin tightening.
     The Harmony(XL) device is the most comprehensive and versatile platform
 to enter the medical and aesthetic industry, as it is the first to combine
 lasers, pulsed light, near-infrared, LED and UVB technologies with multiple
 exchangeable handpieces to ensure easy and effective singular and combined
 therapeutic treatment. The Harmony(XL) also accommodates new versions of
 Alma's unique Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) and several different
 laser technologies. Compared to its successful predecessor, Harmony(XL)
 delivers higher energy and is the first Harmony model to incorporate Alma's
 proprietary IN-Motion(TM) technology, which delivers effective energy with
 virtually no discomfort over a range of applications. Additionally, the
 Harmony(XL) exclusively offers high-power Pixel(R) 2940 technology -- a
 breakthrough for fractionated skin resurfacing treatments.
     "The FDA clearance of the Harmony(XL) reinforces Alma Lasers'
 commitment to developing and marketing innovative treatments for patients
 with every skin type and skin concern," said Howard Kelly, CEO of Alma
 Lasers. "While other systems in the market claim versatility by merging
 technologies or providing multiple handpieces, no other aesthetic system
 offers as many combined treatment possibilities and performance as the
     Every Harmony(XL) handpiece is designed for maximum effectiveness with
 minimal patient discomfort. One of the most popular options is the
 Laser360(TM) skin rejuvenation treatment. The new procedure uses three
 handpieces from the Harmony(XL) system to treat a wide range of age and
 photo-damage symptoms. Patients can achieve outstanding results in just 60
 days, with minimal or no downtime.
     "To give patients a complete treatment, oftentimes physicians need two,
 three or four different lasers, but with the Harmony(XL) you have one
 platform with different handpieces, taking the place of larger devices. You
 can start with one handpiece, treat, and then quickly and easily switch to
 a different one," said Dr. Stuart Melnick, Medical Director, Laser and
 Cosmetic Center in Los Gatos, CA.
