YOKNEAM, Israel, Sept. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Syneron Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ: ELOS), www.syneron.com, the global leader in medical aesthetic products and technology, announced today it won the Allure magazine 2011 Best of Beauty award in the Big Breakthroughs category for both the elure Advanced Skin Lightening™ Lotion and the elure Advanced Lightening™ Night Cream.
"We are extremely delighted and honored to receive this prestigious award from Allure, a publication we hold in the highest regard," said Louis P. Scafuri, Chief Executive Officer of Syneron. "elure further instills our commitment in pioneering innovative aesthetic applications for the face and body and puts us at the forefront of exciting technological advancements that aims to meet and exceed our physician partners' high standards." Dr. Shimon Eckhouse, Chairman of the Board of Syneron commented, "elure is an excellent example of Syneron's technology and product development strategy focused on bringing complete aesthetic solutions to our customers and to consumers. elure is the next generation in skin lightening product with an outstanding efficacy and safety profile proven in extended clinical trials."
According to Allure, most lighteners (including hydroquinone, the dermatologists' gold standard) are only able to address dark spots by blocking the production of melanin deep within the skin but for years, scientists have been looking for an ingredient that can dissolve hyperpigmentation right on the skin's surface—and the creators of elure have done exactly that. "We finally have a way to dissolving melanin on the skin, which means we can achieve lightening much faster, without irritation," said Dr. Leslie Baumann, a board-certified dermatologist in Miami Beach, Florida who also served on elure's medical advisory board.
The two elure products will be featured in the October issue of Allure magazine, with a circulation over 1 million readers.
