Syneron Announces CE Mark for PicoWay Dual Wavelength Picosecond Laser for Tattoo Removal and Treatment of Pigmented Lesions
Date:7/28/2014

HONG KONG, July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Syneron Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ: ELOS), a leading global aesthetic device company, announced today that its new PicoWay® device has received CE Mark indication to treat tattoos of all types and colors and pigmented lesions on any skin type. PicoWay is a new and innovative dual wavelength device, with 532nm and 1064nm wavelengths, which utilizes Syneron's proprietary PicoWay technology to deliver energy to the skin using pulses which are trillionths of a second, known as picosecond pulses. Syneron will begin a staged launch of the PicoWay device in the international market during the third quarter of 2014 and anticipates that it will receive U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for PicoWay by the end of 2014.

PicoWay's high peak power and ultra-short pulse duration enable a unique mode of action which creates the strongest photo-mechanical impact to break up the tattoo ink or the pigmentation. This revolutionary PicoWay technology is integrated into a proven, reliable Candela® platform which ensures superior performance and low cost of ownership.

"Our investment in PicoWay's research and development demonstrate Syneron's commitment to develop technology that enables physicians to provide best-in-practice treatments for their patients," stated Amit Meridor, CEO of Syneron. "Since PicoWay has the shortest picosecond pulse duration and the highest peak power of any device on the market, we believe that fewer treatments will be needed and that the percentage clearance will be higher. We are pleased that Dr. Chan will present his positive results with PicoWay at IMCAS Asia, particularly because it will be a significant market for PicoWay due to the special value placed on clear skin in Asia."

Dr. Henry Chan, specialist in dermatology in Hong Kong, will present the interim results of a multi-center study focused on treating pigmented lesions with PicoWay at the IMCAS Asia Conference slated for August 1-3, 2014 in Hong Kong. His presentation is entitled "The Use of Picosecond Lasers on Asians".

Dr. Chan says "PicoWay's unique mode of picosecond action enables full flexibility to adjust the wavelength, fluence, spot size and rep rate, providing customizable treatments which ensure outstanding clinical results. The novel PicoWay technology enables our clinic to offer a new and exciting solution to remove pigmented lesions. The treatments have proven to be effective, safe and comfortable with a high satisfaction rate among our patients."
