Syneron Medical Introduces Next Generation Handpieces for Gentle Pro Laser Hair Removal and elōs Plus Systems
WAYLAND, Massachusetts, September 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Enhances Efficiency and Reduces Treatment Time
Syneron Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ: ELOS), the leading global aesthetic device company, announced today the market launch of new applicators with expanded spot sizes for two of its best-selling platforms, Gentle Pro™ Laser Hair Removal and elōs Plus® systems.
Syneron continues to innovate and respond to customer demands for efficacious treatments that reduce procedure times while enhancing patient comfort. The next generation of applicators drastically decreases the time needed to complete a procedure while maintaining an exceptional safety profile and ensuring efficacious results.
For the Syneron Candela Gentle Pro laser hair removal series, there is a new, proprietary Large Spot Delivery System (LSDS) handpiece featuring 20, 22 and 24-mm spot sizes. The new handpiece pioneers the first and only 24-mm treatment spot with the Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) cryogen-cooling component that protects the skin's surface for maximum patient comfort.
This unique delivery system is designed to increase efficiency for both the practitioner and consumer, reducing treatment time by 30% while providing safe, comfortable and effective hair removal for all skin types. Ideal for larger areas like the legs and back, the LSDS enables trained practitioners to treat a full back in as little as 20 minutes, significantly increasing the patient flow and revenues potential for the doctor. "The larger spot sizes shrink treatment time without compromising the quality of the hair removal," said Dermatologist Anne Chapas, MD, at Union Square Laser Dermatology, New York. "Patients love it - it's comfortable, it eliminates hair quickly and can be used with the alexandrite or Nd:YAG wavelength so I can safely treat all skin tones."
"Historically, patients with darker skin tones were not ideal candidates for laser hair removal with shorter wavelength systems due to increased risk of pigment changes. This is not so with the GentleMax Pro laser system. Delivering both Alexandrite and Nd:YAG energies the GentleMax Pro provides two safe and effective wavelengths that are gentle on the skin surface while destroying hair follicles for long lasting results," adds Chapas.
Syneron's elōs Plus system also received an upgrade with the introduction of four new applicators - the SRA Plus™, the SRA Mini™, the SR Plus™ for skin rejuvenation and the Motif HR Plus™ for fast hair removal. Once again, Syneron offers a wider range of spot sizes and treatment capabilities for the customer while optimizing treatment time, efficacy and overall comfort for the patient. For over ten years, the elōs® combination of optical energy and bi-polar radio frequency has provided a revolutionary treatment option for the most in-demand aesthetic applications that is safe and effective for patients of all skin types. Now, the same breakthrough technology has been enhanced for the next generation with upgraded elōs Plus applicators.
The new 14x35 mm spot size on the SR, SRA and Motif HR Plus have a 60% larger treatment area with a significantly smaller hand piece, significantly improving ergonomics and usability. These new applicators significantly reduce treatment time and enhance overall efficacy and patient comfort. The new SRA Plus Mini features a 15x14mm spot size for smaller, more focused treatment areas.
"The new elōs Plus large applicators reduce our procedure time by one third on the face and by half to two thirds for large body areas," said Dermatologist Amy Taub, MD, of Advanced Dermatology, Glencoe and Lincolnshire, IL. "With them, we are able to complete extremely effective and comfortable treatments that deliver excellent outcomes and a high safety profile."
