ResurFX™ Fractional Non-Ablative Laser Module to Be Unveiled by Lumenis® at the American Academy of Dermatology's Annual Meeting

Expands Use of Gold-Standard M22 Device in a Broader Range of Common Skin Disorders Including Acne Scars, Surgical Scars and Stretch Marks; Company to Host Educational Symposium and Practice-Building Seminars at AAD, Demonstrating Commitment to Innovation and Patient Care

YOKNEAM, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - Mar 2, 2013) - At the 71st Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), the ResurFX* module will be launched for international sales by Lumenis Ltd., the world's largest developer and manufacturer of advanced medical lasers for aesthetic, surgical, and ophthalmic applications. ResurFX is an affordable module for the M22™ device, the company's multi-application, multi-technology platform. The 1565nm fiber laser energy is delivered by patent-pending CoolScan™ scanner to perform non-sequential scanning to maximize efficacy and reproducible results. The module extends the ability of Lumenis' gold-standard M22 to perform non-ablative skin resurfacing and treat some of the most common aesthetic skin concerns including acne and surgical scars, skin discoloration, periorbital wrinkles and stretch marks. Although the ResurFX module has not yet been FDA cleared, international physicians may see it on display along with Lumenis' broad portfolio of medical lasers for body shaping, tattoo removal, hair removal, scar revision and IPL skin rejuvenation at booth #2035 throughout the AAD meeting, which runs from March 1 to 5 in Miami Beach.

"The new ResurFX module for M22 is a true non-ablative fractional fiber laser technology. It uses a unique algorithm to apply micro-beams of 1565nm laser energy in a non-sequential pattern to increase patient comfort and minimize non-specific thermal damage using the 'cool-scanning' technology pioneered by Lumenis. With over 600 parameter combinations, ResurFX gives me the greatest possible flexibility in treating a wide range of conditions," said Dr. Mitchel P. Goldman, M.D., principle investigator for ResurFX, Volunteer Clinical Professor of Dermatology, University of California, San Diego and Medical Director, Dermatology/Cosmetic Laser Associates of La Jolla, Inc.

"Lumenis invented, advanced, and perfected Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology with both doctors and patients in mind, and we are committed to remaining at the forefront of innovation so that we can solidify our 45 year legacy as the partner of choice in medical devices," said Roy Ramati, Vice President & General Manager of the Aesthetic Strategic Business Unit at Lumenis. "We work with a broad network of leading physicians worldwide to develop practical solutions to help our customers meet the real-world needs of their patients. The M22 is the only multi-application, multi-technology platform that combines three proprietary, robust technologies offering more than 40 indications for use in one platform: Intense Pulsed Light with Optimal Pulse Technology, Multi-spot Nd:YAG and now ResurFX for a complete aesthetic workstation."

Lumenis will also have a variety of educational events taking place at its booth throughout the AAD conference.
