Elemé™ Medical Inc., a private venture-backed aesthetics company building a franchise in the body shaping market with an initial focus on treatment of cellulite, announced today that it has received CE Mark approval of its FDA-cleared SmoothShapes® System. The Company also announced that it is launching the SmoothShapes device internationally at the “17th Congress of the European Academy of Dermatology & Venereology”, Sept. 17-21, Paris. The product launch will include an Elemé Medical-sponsored symposium: “Impacting Cellulite: A Discussion with SmoothShapes® Experts.”

Impacting Cellulite: A Discussion with SmoothShapes® Experts

The SmoothShapes® System uses a proprietary technology called Photomology® that features a unique mechanism of action combining dynamic laser and light energy with mechanical massage and vacuum. This process affects the tissue responsible for the appearance of cellulite—enlarged fat cells and inflexible collagen. SmoothShapes stimulates restoration of healthy cell activity by focusing on both the physical manifestations of cellulite and its underlying causes. Treatments provide improved appearance of cellulite with longer-lasting results that patients can see and feel.

"Based on our technology's robust scientific foundation, we expect considerable interest in SmoothShapes from dermatologists attending the EADV Congress," said Nancy M. Briefs, President and CEO. "These clinicians will place high value on the fact that the regulatory-approved claims about SmoothShapes are based exclusively on results obtained in rigorous, independent and ongoing clinical studies of our System. Consequently, we anticipate that SmoothShapes will be able to quickly establish solid traction in European markets."

The Elemé Medical-sponsored symposium, "Impacting Cellulite: A Discussion with SmoothShapes® Experts", will include a panel of international dermatology experts: Christine Dierickx, M.D. (Boom, Belgium); Nathalie Fournier, M.D. (Clapiers, France); Serge Mordon, Ph.D. (Lille, France); Klaus Fritz, M.D. (Landau, Germany); and, Michail Pankratov, M.D., Ph.D. (Vice President, Regulatory & Clinical Affairs, Elemé Medical).
