IRVINE, Calif., March 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Syneron Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ: ELOS), a global market leader in the aesthetic medical device marketplace, today announced the introduction of the Changing Lives Program, a corporate wide initiative that leverages the company's life-changing technologies with life-changing causes. Launching at the annual American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) meeting in San Francisco on March 21, Changing Lives empowers all 7,000 AAD registrants to select the recipients of Syneron Candela's charitable donations.
Life-Changing Technology Dedicated To Life-Changing Causes
Donating to the charity of your choice is easy. Pick up the company's door drop, select your charity and leave the card at the Syneron Candela Booth, 1014; the company will make a direct donation to these causes. "We are not only proud of the outcomes generated by our devices for those in need, we are pleased when we can give back to the community, sharing solutions that make a difference," comments Amit Meridor, CEO of Syneron Candela.
Changing Lives Charitable Choices Include:
Project New Start sponsored by PicoWay
Project New Start, a program of Alameda County, CA, helps at-risk young people make positive life changes, including assisting them in the removal of gang-related tattoos. Syneron Candela's PicoWay PicoSecod tattoo removal system emits the shortest pulses destroying even the smallest ink particles resulting in faster clearance, and fewer treatments, making it the device of choice for tattoo removal. Featuring two wavelengths, PicoWay is FDA cleared to treat most ink colors on all skin types.
Dress for Success sponsored by UltraShape® and VelaShape® III
Dress for Success is a national organization that helps disadvantaged women enter the workforce by providing them with career tools, professional attire and a boost to their self-esteem.
UltraShape uses focused ultrasound technology to destroy fat cells, helping individuals regain confidence by losing up to two full sizes with minimal discomfort, no downtime and no visible signs of treatment.
VelaShape III combines three technologies for safe, effective body contouring. Patients see a dramatic reduction in cellulite and circumference, and new features ensure enhanced performance in fewer sessions.
The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation sponsored by Vbeam® Perfecta
The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation helps ensure the diagnosis and treatment of children born with hemangiomas and other vascular abnormalities.
The VBeam Perfecta is the world's best-known and most popular laser for the treatment of vascular abnormalities. Vbeam Perfecta is gentle enough to be FDA cleared to treat delicate infant skin. The VBeam Perfecta is the "gold standard" for laser treatment of vascular lesions for infants, children and adults of all ages.
Camp Discovery sponsored by elos Plus®
Camp Discovery, a program of the AAD, provides a wealth of outdoor activities for children living with skin diseases—free of charge.
elōs Plus is the complete aesthetic workstation, fully upgradeable and able to provide medical and aesthetic applications ranging from skin rejuvenation, color correction, permanent hair reduction and more.
The Henry Jackson Foundation sponsored by GentleMax Pro®
The Henry Jackson Foundation is a global organization dedicated to advancing military medical research.
GentleMax Pro has been used to deliver safe, effective, permanent hair reduction on all skin types. It is especially effective when used with amputees as it increases the comfort of wearing a prosthetic limb. With patented DCD™ cooling, GentleMax Pro removes unwanted hair and is also FDA cleared for the treatment of pigmented and vascular lesions.
The Joseph M. Still Burn Center sponsored by CO2RE®
The Joseph M. Still Burn Center treats more than 2,000 patients who suffer burns annually—one-third of whom are children—with a variety of treatments, including CO2RE.
CO2RE is the fractional CO2 system that enables precise targeting and effective treatment at the surface, middle and deep dermal levels. CO2RE also offers traditional CO2 resurfacing and laser excision of lesions.
Through the Changing Lives Program, Syneron Candela is proud to support these organizations; device work does more than improve looks. Curious? Stop by the company's booth, #1014, during AAD to learn more, and let us make a donation on your behalf.
