WAYLAND, MA--(Marketwire -02/14/12)- Syneron Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ: ELOS - News), www.syneron.com, the global leader in medical aesthetic products and technology, will launch the much anticipated GentleMax Pro® at the 2012 South Beach Symposium at the Lowes Miami Beach Hotel in Miami, Florida on February 16 - 20, 2012. GentleMax Pro® is a solid state, dual wavelength laser platform that offers the maximum performance in speed and reliability for the largest energy-based, nonsurgical cosmetic procedure -- laser hair removal.
"Building upon the solid reputation and Gold Standard technology of the Gentle Family of lasers, the challenge we set for GentleMax Pro was simple -- to design the next generation device that will outperform the current Gold Standard in high-speed laser hair removal," said Louis P. Scafuri, Chief Executive Officer of Syneron Medical and Candela Corporation. "Not only is the GentleMax Pro smaller, lighter and faster but we've added over a dozen new features and refined existing features to the finest detail starting with the way it sounds all the way up to how fast it works -- making it a more thorough and truly enhanced experience for our customers and their patients."
Redesigned from the ground up, the GentleMax Pro delivers robust performance with high reliability for the busy professional hair removal and aesthetic treatment environments. "When it comes to offering fast and effective laser hair removal every specification matters," said Ellen H. Frankel, M.D., dermatologist and Medical Director at Rejuvaderm Medi Spa in Cranston, Rhode Island. "The dual wavelength of the GentleMax Pro allows us to treat a wider range of patients with one device and having the industry's largest spot size of 18mm with tremendous fluence option and pulse width range puts a whole new meaning behind high-speed laser hair removal."
In addition to many of the system refinements, the GentleMax Pro also comes equipped with the multi-spot Specialty Delivery System, providing the option to treat facial veins, leg veins and other vascular lesions including hemangioma and port wine stains with 1.5, 3.0 and 3x10 mm treatment spots. "At the Gold Laser Academy (www.goldlaseracademy.com) we make certain to provide our attendees with in-depth, hands-on, training utilizing all the Gold Standard and cutting edge technologies in aesthetics," said Alan Gold, M.D., plastic surgeon and Director of the Gold Laser Academy in Syosset, New York. "The GentleMax Pro has been a great addition to our armamentarium -- all of the users from trainers to attendees have been very impressed with the performance and versatility of the device."
Attendees at the 2012 South Beach Symposium will be first to see the new Gold-Standard in laser hair removal. Demonstration of the new GentleMax Pro will occur throughout the symposium including expert physician advice by Daniel Wasserman, M.D., board certified Dermatologist in Napels, Florida, on Saturday, February 18, 2012 from 4pm - 4:20pm ET at the Syneron-Candela booth.
