Cynosure Receives Expanded FDA Clearance to Market PicoSure for Treatment of Wrinkles


Cynosure, Inc. has received FDA 510(k) clearance to market its PicoSure Picosecond Laser Workstation for the treatment of wrinkles with the company's new disposable energy delivery system, the FOCUS lens array. In the fourth quarter of 2012, PicoSure recieved FDA clearance for the removal of tattoos and benign pigmented lesions.

"This clearance complements our recently received approval to market PicoSure for the treatment of acne scars, and demonstrates the breadth of our FOCUS lens array technology to address additional high-volume indications," said Cynosure Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael Davin. "According to the independent industry research and analysis firm Medical Insight, worldwide sales for skin rejuvenation platforms are projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 8.2 percent through 2018 to $512.6 million. We believe this large addressable market represents a significant growth opportunity for Cynosure and provides another avenue to drive our disposables revenue."
