Cynosure Files Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against CoolTouch Inc.
Date:1/9/2008

Company and Largest Shareholder El.En. S.p.A. Seek Injunction and Monetary

Damages

WESTFORD, Mass., Jan. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cynosure, Inc. (Nasdaq: CYNO), a leading developer and manufacturer of a broad array of light-based aesthetic treatment systems, and its largest shareholder, El.En. S.p.A., today filed a patent infringement lawsuit against CoolTouch Inc. in U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts. The lawsuit alleges that CoolTouch's 1320 nm CoolLipo(TM) laser system infringes on U.S. Patent No. 6,206,873 (the 873 patent), which covers technology using laser energy to remove subcutaneous fat. Cynosure is the exclusive licensee of the 873 patent, which is owned by El.En.

Cynosure received U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance to market the Smartlipo workstation in the fourth quarter of 2006. The product, which was launched in early 2007, uses a 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser to deliver energy directly to subcutaneous fat cells, causing them to rupture. The emitted fat-melting energy also coagulates tissue, thus inducing collagen retraction and tissue tightening.

The lawsuit filed by Cynosure and El.En. seeks monetary damages and an injunction against CoolTouch to prohibit further infringement.

"Smartlipo has become the gold standard for the minimally invasive removal of localized fat, and we will vigorously defend our intellectual property position," said Cynosure President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Davin. "As evidenced by the
