YOKNEAM, Israel, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Expands treatment capabilities, reduces treatment time, and improves overall experience with UltraShape and VelaShape systems
Syneron Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ:ELOS), the leading global aesthetic device company, announced today the introduction of new enhancements to its innovative body shaping products, including the UltraShape® V3 system, which is currently available in Canada, Europe, Latin America, and Asia, and the VelaShape® II system, which has a market leading installed base and is available globally. The enhancements, which are based on physician and patient feedback, are designed to significantly increase the return on investment for physicians, reduce number of treatments, and improve patient experience and comfort.
The UltraShape V3 system is a clinically proven non-invasive solution for fat reduction and body contouring using "non-thermal" focused ultrasound technology. This unique fat selective technology gives physicians a comprehensive body sculpting solution that enables targeted, non-invasive fat destruction. The enhancements to the UltraShape V3 system include:
- U-Sculpt transducer (delivers focused ultrasound treatment) - the new U-Sculpt transducer is smaller and 50% lighter than the current full-size transducer. The U-Sculpt is ergonomically designed, includes more treatment pulses, and is easily interchangeable with the full-size transducer during treatment sessions.
- Re-usable strap sets (used to gather skin and fat tissue at the treatment area) -designed to quickly and effectively lift and gather tissue in the target area to increase treatment efficiency.
- Ultrasonic treatment gel (allows focused ultrasound energy to be delivered through the skin) - designed to reduce treatment preparation time and provide patients with a cleaner, more streamlined procedure compared to the previous option.
The UltraShape V3 enhancements will be available to current UltraShape customers beginning in May 2013 and will also be included in all new UltraShape V3 system purchases.
"As a long time and satisfied UltraShape user, I find the new U-Sculpt transducer a great enhancement," commented Mr. Christopher Inglefield BSc, MBBS, FRCS. "U-Sculpt is light and easy to move around and enables me to treat small areas which were not reachable with the larger transducer. In addition, the new treatment set up using the gel and straps, minimizes the preparation time significantly, a fact that is well appreciated by both my patients and my staff."
The VelaShape system, featuring Syneron's proprietary elōs technology, was the first FDA cleared device for non-invasive Circumferential Reduction. VelaShape has an installed base of more than 7,000 systems worldwide, has been clinically proven in over a dozen studies, and there have been more than 5 million independent VelaShape treatments globally. The enhancements to the VelaShape II system include:
- New treatment protocol and disposable cover for circumferential reduction - offers patients the same efficacy with 50% fewer treatment sessions.
The new VelaShape II disposable treatment cover will be available in May 2013 and will be featured in product demonstrations at the Company's booth #709 at THE Aesthetics Show multidisciplinary medical education meeting, May 17-19, 2013 in Las Vegas, NV.
Dr. Shimon Eckhouse, Chief Executive Officer of Syneron, said, "VelaShape is the best-selling product in the history of Syneron. We believe we have made the system even more attractive to our customers and their patients by enabling faster, more effective circumferential reduction treatment capabilities. Combined with UltraShape, we have the most innovative and broadly used body shaping product portfolio on the market and are well positioned to lead the global market of non-invasive body contouring."
