Lumenis Receives FDA Clearance to Market Aluma(TM) Skin Renewal System for the Treatment of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Breakthrough Technology Available as Stand-Alone Unit and Upgrade Module to Popular Lumenis One(TM) Platform - Delivers Effective, Predictable, and
Virtually Painless Results

(press release from Lumenis(R) Ltd.)

YOKNEAM, Israel, Oct. 27 -- Lumenis(R) Ltd. (LUME.PK), a global developer, manufacturer and seller of laser and light-based devices for medical, aesthetic, ophthalmic, dental and veterinary applications, announced today that it has received FDA clearance to market the revolutionary new Aluma(TM) Skin Renewal System with FACES(TM) (Functional Aspiration Controlled Electrothermal Stimulation) technology in the U.S. The Aluma system is the world's first system to offer effective, predictable and virtually painless non-invasive treatment of fine lines and wrinkles.

"The market for virtually painless, no downtime wrinkle and fine line reduction is vast and growing. Aluma's unique FACES technology is not only predictably effective, but also very safe. In our initial clinical study, patients showed visible improvement of treated wrinkles after a single session and the effect remained during follow up. In this study, 85% of patients showed visible wrinkle improvement at the 6-month follow up, and more than half of the subjects showed moderate to complete improvement of the skin's smoothness and appearance. The end result is nearly every patient expressed satisfaction with their treatment outcome. Unlike older technologies, physicians can delegate the procedure with confidence to trained staff members. This makes the system ideal for dermatology and plastic surgery practices, as well as cosmetic practices in OB/GYN, Family Practice and other specialties," commented Avner Raz, Lumenis President and Chief Executive Officer. "Earlier this month we launched the Aluma at the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology Annual Congress in London (UK), and are equally excited to bring this breakthrough technology to the U.S. market. The Aluma will be available as both a stand-alone device and as a module to our multi-technology Lumenis One(TM) platform -- proof of our continuing commitment to the 'infinity' platform concept."

Aluma(TM) Skin Renewal System with FACES(TM)
Aluma's groundbreaking FACES technology combines radio frequency energy with vacuum to allow superficial as well as deep dermal heating for effective treatment, with virtually no pain and very low risk of adverse events. The vacuum-assisted bipolar radio frequency handpiece folds the skin and positions it in tight contact with the electrodes, placing the dermis in direct alignment with the energy. Special alignment of the electrodes enables RF energy to meet dermis impedance, which results in a uniform, contained zone of heating for collagen contraction and renewal with little to no discomfort.

"The Aluma truly represents a leap in radio frequency technology. We have bypassed older technologies, which can be extremely painful and only effective on less than 50% of patients, to a treatment where nearly every patient experiences improvement and only feels gentle warming of the skin," said Dr. Michael Gold, clinical investigator on initial studies of the device. "The Aluma represents a great opportunity for physicians. In my practice, using a different device for a 1.5 - 2 hour procedure, with an expensive consumable tip and pain medications that can disable the patient for the entire day, can cost the patient significantly more and has only limited appeal. The ability to provide satisfactory wrinkle reduction using the Aluma in a series of about five quick, virtually painless treatments for a reasonable cost is much more marketable to my patient base," added Dr. Mitchel Goldman, another clinical investigator of the Aluma. "It's a win-win for both the patient and the practice."
