Syneron Announces International Launch of eLase™ Laser Hair Removal System

Combination of Proprietary elos Bi-Polar RF and Laser Energies Increases Patient Safety and Reduces Treatment Times on All Skin Types; New Motif LHR Applicator Offers Virtually Painless Hair Removal

YOKNEAM, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - Nov 8, 2011) - Syneron Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ: ELOS), the leading global aesthetic device company, announced today the International launch of the eLase™ with Motif™ laser hair removal system. The eLase system will be unveiled at CosmoProf Asia 2011, November 9-11, 2011. The eLase system has received CE Mark approval from the European Union and is available in select European and Asian markets.

The eLase system combines Syneron's proprietary elos bi-polar radio frequency (RF) energy with diode laser energy. This synergistic energy combination allows the system to utilize less optical energy during treatments, increasing patient safety for all skin types. The system features the new Motif LHR hair removal applicator with Motif mode that leverages the energy combination to allow high frequency, lower energy treatments that are virtually pain free with far shorter treatment times than competitive devices. The system also includes a new Motif IR applicator that can be used for fractional facial rejuvenation procedures with zero patient downtime, expanding the capabilities of the eLase system beyond hair removal procedures.

Louis P. Scafuri, Chief Executive Officer of Syneron Medical, said, "The eLase builds upon Syneron and Candela's proven track record of best-in-class hair removal systems with a next-generation platform designed to further enhance the patient experience. The unique combination of our elos technology allows for selective and deep dermal penetration, providing highly effective and safe hair removal treatments for patients of all skin types. In addition, the eLase features many ease-of-use and patient comfort enhancements, including faster treatment times, a new pain free mode, contact cooling and intra-procedure dermal monitoring."

Mr. Scafuri further added, "In addition to the hair removal mode, the system also has an optional Motif IR applicator that allows the practice to leverage the eLase to offer fractional skin rejuvenation procedures with the same platform and same safety profile across skin types. The eLase system is available through our direct sales force and distribution partners in Europe and Asia."
