– UltraShape Is Recognized As A Breakthrough In Non-Invasive Abdominal Fat Reduction Thanks To Its Painless And Effective Ultrasound Technology
WAYLAND, Mass., Jan. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Syneron Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ: ELOS), a leading global aesthetic device company, announced today that NewBeauty Magazine awarded UltraShape® the "Best Body-Contouring Treatment" in its annual 2014 Beauty Choice Awards. As a winner in the coveted "Beauty Game Changers" category, UltraShape is recognized for its innovative ultrasound-based treatment that painlessly and permanently destroys fat in the abdominal area where fat is most resistant to diet and exercise.
Featured alongside an elite list of outstanding aesthetic products, NewBeauty notes that UltraShape was chosen by a panel of thousands of readers, editors and beauty industry experts for its ability to deliver real, noticeable and highly customizable results "without surgery or hours spent in the gym."
"As the number of satisfied UltraShape users continues to grow, we are honored to earn recognition from NewBeauty Magazine, further validating our leading position in the body shaping space," said Dr. Shimon Eckhouse, Chairman of the Board of Directors for Syneron. "UltraShape represents the next generation in body-shaping with proven clinical outcomes and a superior safety profile, underscoring Syneron’s ongoing commitment to advancing treatment outcomes through technological innovation."
"What sets UltraShape apart from other body shaping solutions is its fast outcomes with results visible in often as little as 2 weeks post first treatment," says Amit Meridor, Chief Executive Officer of Syneron. "With UltraShape’s customizable treatments, for the very first time physicians are able to truly sculpt instead of bulk heat or freeze fat. UltraShape is a painless solution for those who cannot get rid of stubborn fat resistant to diet and exercise."
The UltraShape System is the first and only non-invasive body shaping treatment that uses pulsed focused ultrasound energy to precisely target subcutaneous fat, while keeping the surrounding tissue, vasculature, nerves and muscles intact. Unlike other body shaping technologies that use heat or freezing techniques, UltraShape uses a pure mechanical effect to destroy fat cells without inducing thermal damage. This unique feature of UltraShape technology results in a safe and comfortable treatment experience with no visible signs of treatment and no downtime.
The newest fat-blasting treatment on the block, UltraShape, with over 300,000 procedures performed worldwide, was cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) for non-invasive reduction of abdominal circumference via fat cell destruction in April of last year.
