Syneron will preview two new technologies at the meeting. The Matrix RF applicator utilizes Bi-Polar Radio Frequency technology for skin rejuvenation treatments. The tunable applicator, which may be used on Syneron's eLight, eLaser and eMax platforms — quoting from a press release now, folks… yes,I'm not above that if it allows for me to do a little editorializing — anyway, the tunable applicator allows for the adjustment of ablation and coagulation settings to vary treatment depth and the proportion of skin treated in each session. A second new release, the VelaShape device for the temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite, as well as the only FDA-cleared device for the temporary reduction of thigh circumference.

In other cellulite news, Elemé Medical Inc announced today that it will launch its first product, the SmoothShapes' System, at the meeting.
And Reliant Technologies has announced the [removed]Fraxel re:pair[/removed] laser, which the company claims is "a new class of treatment therapy for Co2 laser skin resurfacing." I would like to put a video of this product in action on the Plastic Surgery Channel. Where's the party?
