Yokneam, Israel (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
Lumenis Ltd., the world's largest medical laser company developing, manufacturing and distributing a broad range of medical lasers and sophisticated energy delivery equipment for surgical, aesthetic and ophthalmic applications, announces the signing of an agreement with Sound Surgical Technologies LLC (SST), whereby Lumenis will be a distributor of SST’s VASER® Shape MC1 System, a high-end non-invasive body shaping device for aesthetic practitioners.
The FDA-cleared VASER Shape MC1 System is a non-surgical body shaping device to be used by physicians, which uses specialized hand pieces for ultrasound diathermy and zonal lymphatic massage. As a non-invasive alternative to liposuction, VASER Shape treatments can shape, firm and smooth the body by heating the fatty tissue layer up to 5cm below the skin surface, reducing the appearance of cellulite, and improving lymphatic drainage and local blood circulation. Treatment is a painless, comfortable, massage-like experience for patients that requires only three to five sessions for measurable results.
“The last few years have seen strong growth in patient demand for body shaping treatments,” said Tzipi Ozer-Armon, CEO of Lumenis. “The VASER Shape System’s non-invasive body contouring application complements our existing high-end aesthetic product offering. It is a priority for Lumenis to continue providing high quality and effective products and services to our customers looking to expand their practices.”
"We are very excited about the opportunity to enter the body contouring market by leveraging our market-leading aesthetic distribution channel,” said Bob Di Silvio, Lumenis’ President of the Americas. “It is a privilege to team up with the professionals at Sound Surgical Technologies to deliver VASER Shape to the US market."
“Sound Surgical Technologies has long been known as a company with a solid reputation for high quality, effective body shaping products and reliable service. The VASER Shape System is the best non-surgical body shaping product on the market today with immediate, measurable results and a high degree of patient comfort. We are excited to partner with Lumenis to help increase the awareness of the VASER Shape product and expand into new markets in the US,” said Dan Goldberger, CEO of Sound Surgical Technologies.
