IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Syneron Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ: ELOS), a global market leader in the aesthetic medical device marketplace, is proud to announce that its revolutionary Profound® non-surgical radiofrequency micro-needle device with proprietary and patent protected technology, has been hailed one of 2015's biggest aesthetic breakthroughs by Yahoo! Beauty and Plastic Surgery Practice Magazine.
Plastic Surgery Practice Magazine calls Profound one of the Four Hottest Launches in 2015, highlighting its ability to lift sagging jowls, define the jawline, and add volume to marionette lines, all without surgery.
Yahoo! Beauty also publicized the exciting possibilities of the new treatment, naming it one of "The Seven Biggest Beauty Breakthroughs in 2015".
"With Profound, physicians deliver maximum results with minimum downtime, empowering the creation of younger, smoother skin with unprecedented outcomes," says Amit Meridor, Chief Executive Officer of Syneron. "We are delighted to receive recognition from the leading experts at Yahoo! and Plastic Surgery Practice, and honored to be featured among treatments that revolutionize the way we combat aging."
What Profound Does
Profound is changing the way consumers and doctors think about combating the signs of aging. Results suggest that with optimal settings, one Profound treatment restores volume1 creating younger2 looking skin. The system delivers radiofrequency energy through micro-needles to boost collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid from the inside out and is clinically proven to improve facial wrinkles.
"It's a whole new chapter in lasers," explains Macrene Alexiades, MD, PhD, Associate Clinical Professor at Yale University School of Medicine. "It's the closest we have gotten to a surgical facelift, non-surgically."
Profound delivers energy directly into the deep dermis to stimulate the production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, the three key building blocks for youthful skin. As a result, the treatment adds volume and resiliency to the jawline, neck, jowls, nasolabial folds and cheeks. It is ideal for women and men who are seeking a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment to look younger.
The results are the culmination of a decade of research which used Syneron's patented and proprietary Profound micro-needle-based radiofrequency energy delivery system with precise, real time, temperature control within the skin. The study arm that used optimal treatment parameters settings resulted in a 100% response rate3 among all subjects treated as assessed by blinded evaluation.
Unlike facelifts, which require general anesthesia, long incisions, and recovery, Profound patients typically experience only minor redness that resolves within two to 12 hours and minimal swelling for up to five days. Most patients can resume normal activities within 24-48 hours. Only one treatment is needed4.
