Syneron's Innovative Aesthetic Devices Highlighted at The Aesthetic Meeting 2011

Key Opinion Leader Presentations Demonstrate Syneron's Leadership in Aesthetic Market

YOKNEAM, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - May 9, 2011) - Syneron Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ: ELOS), the leading global aesthetic device company, announced today that several of its products were highlighted in physician presentations by key opinion leaders in the aesthetic industry at The Aesthetic Meeting 2011, which is being held from May 6-11, 2011 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center in Boston, MA.

Louis P. Scafuri, Chief Executive Officer of Syneron, said, "The Aesthetic Meeting is one of the premiere conferences for our core physician market and we are pleased that Syneron and Candela innovative and best-in class products will be featured prominently throughout the meeting. One of the Company's key initiatives has been to provide robust clinical evidence supporting the efficacy of our products and to effectively communicate the strong science that our technologies are based on. We continue to lead the industry in this area, as demonstrated by our recent new product launches, many of which are the topic of presentations at the conference by thought leading plastic surgeons."

Mr. Scafuri added, "Syneron is ideally positioned to help plastic surgeons and other aesthetic-focused physicians enhance their practice by offering products that allow them to address a wider group of patients with enhanced efficacy, shorter down-time, and more appealing price points. This includes category-creating products such as ePrime™, which provides a new dimension in natural facial enhancement, and eMatrix™, which features Syneron's pioneering sublative rejuvenation technology for energy-based facial rejuvenation. These products deliver exceptional results and patient satisfaction and demonstrate how Syneron is best positioned to partner with providers to meet evolving expectations with innovative aesthetic technologies focused on cosmetic medicine and cosmetic plastic surgery."

Syneron is also featuring its elure™ Advanced Skin Lightening Technology. elure lightens the skin and provides the pathway for a meaningful improvement in skin appearance with brighter, more youthful, healthier skin in just one month with no reports of skin irritation or other health related risks.

Alan Gold, M.D., F.A.C.S., commented, "I am impressed with the way elure lightens existing pigment. Other products turn off the pigment generating mechanism and as pigmented skin migrates for natural exfoliation we see the lightening effect, but this process takes months. With elure we see significant benefit as early as a few weeks."

The Aesthetic Meeting 2011 is organized by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), which is comprised of over 2,600 plastic surgeons, and the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation (ASERF). More than 1,500 attendees are expected to attend the meeting, including ASAPS members, members of other plastic surgery societies, and members of other aesthetic societies.

Syneron and Candela's family of new products are being featured at the Company's booth (1039) and were the topic of several presentations by thought-leading physicians at the meeting. This included a physician panel presentation titled "Cosmetic Medicine 2011-Achieving Excellent Results" that included:

  • Michael I. Kulick, M.D., Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, San Francisco, CA - Dr. Kulick made a presentation on ePrime, the Company's recently launched energy-based dermal remodeling system.
  • Hema Sundaram, M.D., Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery Center, Rockville, MD - Dr. Sundaram spoke on eMatrix sublative rejuvenation, the world's first RF-only technology for energy-based facial rejuvenation.
  • Jeffrey S. Dover, M.D., F.R.C.P.C., SkinCare Physicians of Chestnut Hill, MA - Dr. Dover made a presentation on the Vbeam Perfecta, a best in class pulsed dye laser for the treatment of vascular and pigmented lesions.

Jason Pozner, M.D., F.A.C.S., who is also scheduled to conduct a workshop covering Syneron products at The Aesthetic Meeting 2011, commented, "Syneron is a Company that is built on scientific innovation and clinically proven efficacy. The Company has established itself as a leader in developing new technologies that are backed by intensive scientific research, which translates to exceptional and reliable results for practitioners and their patients."
