People With All Hair Colors and All Skin Types Finally Become Candidates for Hair Removal in Tampa

TAMPA, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 15, 2006 -- It seems these days that the number of businesses offering Laser Hair Removal is quickly spiraling out of control. Businesses from permanent makeup to airbrush tanning to cosmetic surgery offices are adding laser treatments to their list of services; however, not all lasers are the same.

At Esteem Med Spa, elos technology lasers are used for everything from Laser Hair Removal to Spot and Vein Removal and Skin Rejuvenation. Elos (electro-optical synergy) uses a unique combination of radio frequency and light to isolate the treatment area and leave the surrounding skin free from potentially harmful side effects. Using gentle pulses of two targeted energy sources means better results with lower overall energy output -- assuring the highest level of safety and comfort.

"Because there is less overall energy delivered right to the target," states Randy Matscherz, Tampa Syneron Representative, "elos technology lasers are safer, quicker, more effective with less discomfort and downtime."

Elos is the first and only technology that effectively removes hair of all colors and also that works on all different colors of skin. Most of the area businesses offering laser hair removal use lasers that require the pigment of the hair to be dark enough in order to work effectively. With the elos technology, there is also the second source of energy, radio frequency, which is colorblind and works on red, blond, and white hair.

"Esteem MedSpa has such advanced solutions for the skin and body, that offering this ground-breaking procedure for all skin types and on all hair colors was a natural fit," said Chief Executive Officer Skip Saldan. "I want the Tampa Bay area to be able to take advantage of our cutting edge research."

While lasers were invented in the mid 60s, it wasn't until the mid 70s that the technology had evolved enough to be used safely for dermatological applications. In 1991, physicist Dr. Shimon Eckhouse invented and patented intense pulsed light (IPL), a significant advancement over conventional lasers. A quantum leap occurred in the year 2000, when master physicist, Dr. Michael Kreindel, "combined" IPL technology with bi-polar radio frequency (RF) to create electro-optical synergy or elos as it is now known. This revolutionary technology platform soon set new standards in safety and efficacy for a wide range of medical aesthetic procedures. Dr. Shimon Eckhouse and Dr. Michael Kreindel founded Syneron in 2000. The elos advantages in safety and efficacy are documented in over 40 Clinical Papers and realized in medical aesthetic practices around the globe. Every laser light manufactured by Syneron is FDA approved.

About Syneron

The history of Syneron is one of innovation. With the limitations of intense pulse light (IPL) and conventional laser systems as his inspiration, master physicist, Dr. Michael Kreindel, was determined to come up with a better solution for medical aesthetics. After years of research and development, he created elos (Electro-optical Synergy), the revolutionary technology platform that powers all Syneron medical aesthetics systems. Together, he and his long-time colleague, Dr. Shimon Eckhouse, the inventor and patent holder of IPL, founded Syneron in 2000. Five product families were soon launched from this robust and promising pipeline and the stage was set for a new industry leader. Since then, Syneron has been setting new standards in safety and efficacy for a wide range of aesthetic procedures.
