Syneron LED-based skin rejuvenation system wins FDA approval

Yokneam, Israel--Syneron Medical received 510(k) clearance from the US FDA to market a new Tända Light Emitting Diode (LED) system for skin rejuvenation.

Yokneam, Israel--Aesthetic device company Syneron Medical (NASDAQ: ELOS) received 510(k) clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market a new Tända Light Emitting Diode (LED) system for skin rejuvenation. The product is approved for the treatment of wrinkles, rhytides, and fine lines in the periorbital (around the eye) region. Syneron expects to begin commercialization of the new Tända skin rejuvenation product in the second half of 2011 in both the professional and consumer markets.

Michael H. Gold, M.D., said, "Having the Tanda Professional Rejuvenate red light home use device is a wonderful addition to those wanting to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes with the most advanced home light source available. The device provides a high-powered and safe treatment for skin rejuvenation that effectively enhances collagen and elastin production while improving dermal moisture."

The new Tända skin rejuvenation system joins the Tända family of products from Pharos Life Corporation, a leading manufacturer of home-use light therapy devices for aesthetic procedures, acquired by Syneron Medical in December 2010. It utilizes a proprietary new super luminous LED array that delivers concentrated channels of light for a fractional phototherapy effect. The super luminous LED allows the new system to deliver five-times greater power than the existing Tända family of products, reducing the required number of treatments to two treatments per week. The new system leverages the modular design of the Tända family of products and its treatment head is compatible with the Tända Regenerate and Tända Clear systems that are currently available.
Tända products are marketed directly to consumers through premium retailers and include products for skincare and wellness solutions for both the home-use and professional markets. More information on Tända products is available at www.tandaskincare.com.
