Syneron’s new anti-aging, hand held light emitting device has been approved by the FDA for distribution direct to the consumer.

The Israeli-based company already markets a number of hand held devices in both the anti-acne and anti-aging domain under the Tända trade name, and this new product has resulted from its acquisition of Pharos Life Sciences that occurred late last year.

The new Tända skin rejuvenation product is expected to hit the market in the second half of 2011, according to the company, in both the professional and consumer markets.

According to Syneron executive vice president, Fabian Tenenbaum, the new release is more powerful than the other products in the range.

Commenting on the clearance, he said: “We are pleased to receive clearance for the latest addition to the Tända family of products. This new system, which is more powerful and expands the indications for the Tända's LED technology, demonstrates the broad applications of LED and the strong growth opportunity that we see for the business.”

According to the company, the Tända Professional Rejuvenate product can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes by enhancing collagen and elastin production while improving dermal moisture.

In addition, the company said the Tända Rejuvenate product has the same modular system as the rest of the range, meaning that the different fittings can be used with the same device.

Light-based skin care devices

The consumer market for light emitting skin care devices has been growing in recent years, and consumer electronics company Philips was the most recent player to highlight it as a future target.

Philips is currently working on a laser-based treatment in collaboration with Solta which claims to help improve skin tone and reduce pigmentation.

The company also said it would be growing in the skin care domain through intellectual property acquisitions, as well as partnering ‘with a big cosmetics company’ to develop other propositions for women.
