Syneron Candela Announces FDA Clearance of PicoWay Picosecond Laser for Tattoo Removal We are proud to annouce that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance of the new PicoWay picosecond device. PicoWay is a state-of-the-art dual wavelength device, with 1064nm and 532nm wavelengths, which utilises the proprietary PicoWay TechnologyTM to generate picosecond pulses for the removal of tattoos. The FDA clearance is for all tattoo colors: red, yellow and orange for the 532nm wavelength; black, brown, green, blue and purple for the 1064nm wavelength. The US launch of PicoWay will begin immediately, following the launch of the product in the international market in October. PicoWay incorporates picosecond (one trillionth of a second) pulse duration to generate an ultra-short pulse and very high peak power of laser energy on the skin. The high energy ultra-short picosecond laser pulse creates a strong photomechanical impact that optimizes fracturing of tattoo ink. The innovative PicoWay Technology is integrated into a proven, reliable Syneron Candela platform which offers high reliability, superior performance and low cost of ownership. In support of the FDA 510(K) clearance, the performance of the PicoWay system was evaluated in a prospective, US multicenter study conducted by Eric Bernstein, MD, Arielle Kauvar, MD, and Tina Alster, MD as the primary investigators. A large majority of subjects (86%) achieved at least 50% tattoo clearance after only 3 treatments

based on blinded, independent review. Device treatment also presented a favorable safety profile with no device-related serious adverse events, and low levels of pain or discomfort throughout the study. Dr. Eric Bernstein, President of Main Line Center for Laser Surgery, said, “PicoWay is an innovative and exciting breakthrough for tattoo removal. As a dual wavelength Nd:YAG laser, it delivers extremely high peak-power, picosecond pulses enabling the treatment of all skin types. What this means is extremely impressive results, which translate into very happy patients. PicoWay is a game-changing laser for tattoo removal, and could not have come at a better time.” Amit Meridor, Chief Executive Officer of Syneron Candela, said, “We expect a strong interest in PicoWay. Tattoo removal represents a significant market opportunity, with estimates that of the 45 million Americans with at least one tattoo, 20% want to have their tattoo removed. PicoWay provides a powerful new option, which clinical trials have shown to offer high rates of tattoo removal in very few treatments.” Dr. Shimon Eckhouse, Chairman of the Board of Syneron Candela commented, “PicoWay represents a new era in aesthetic and dermatologic laser applications due to its mechanism of action which is mainly based on the photomechanical (photo-acoustic) effect compared to photo-thermal effect which is used in longer pulse duration aesthetic laser and IPL devices. With the shortest picosecond pulse and the

highest peak power on the market the PicoWay enables efficient tattoo removal with less treatment sessions, more comfort to patients and new revenue streams for our customers. The different mechanism of action of the PicoWay turns it into a new aesthetic platform with wide range of new aesthetic applications that our scientists and doctors are working on. The highly trusted, reliable Candela platform used on the PicoWay was demonstrated in the multi-site clinical trials performed with the device in the US and internationally on a wide range of indications. This very high reliability and ease of use for the doctor are important advantages of the PicoWay”. Dr. Arielle N.B. Kauvar, Clinical Professor of Dermatology at New York University, said, “The PicoWay laser allows us to treat a broader range of skin types and a wide array of tattoo ink colors. With the ultra-short picosecond pulse duration, there is minimal discomfort during treatment. Professional and multicolored tattoos are cleared in very few treatment sessions offering greater patient convenience compared to longer treatment regimens.”

Tatoo Removal Body art, such as tattoos, have fascinated mankind for centuries and have already been found in ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman cultures. In the past, such body arkings served to enhance beauty, provide healing, declare belongings, and were even used to identify criminals and slaves. The symbolic importance of tattoos has endured through the present day. However, although tattooing in ancient times was reserved for a select few, the invention of electric tattooing machines in the 20th century made tattooing available and affordable for all. It is estimated that 38% of men and women between the ages of 18 and 29 years have at least one tattoo. The prevalence of tattoos has significantly increased over the past 20 years, consequently, increasing the demand for their removal. Surveys suggest that up to 50% of may regret having a tattoo, 11% consider removal and approximately 6% actually seek tattoo removal. Reasons for removal may vary from embarrassment, low selfesteem, problems with clothing, changing of life roles, medical problems, and stigmatization1. Tattoo removal has been performed with various. While tattoos were once considered permanent, it is now possible to remove them. Prelaser tattoo removal methods include dermabrasion, salabrasion (scrubbing the skin with salt), cryosurgery, and excision which is sometimes still used along with skin grafts for larger tattoos. The main drawbacks of these methods are that they are nonspecific to the tattoo particles, have prolonged healing times and might leave scars.

The concept behind laser tattoo removal is based on the mechanism of permanent tattooing. Tattoos consist of particles of tattoo pigment suspended in the skin. While normal human growth and healing processes will remove small foreign particles from the skin, tattoo pigment particles are permanent because they are too big to be removed. Laser treatment causes tattoo pigment particles to fragment into smaller pieces. These smaller pieces are then removed by normal body processes. Tattoo removal by laser was performed with continuouswave lasers initially, and later with Q-switched lasers, which became commercially available in the early 1990s. These high power nanosecond pulse durations were safe and effective in removing tattoos but required numerous sessions, frequently requiring 12 or more for complete clearance. PicoWayTM, Syneron-Candela’s new and innovative picosecond dual wavelength laser has been developed to address this market need more effectively with fewer treatments than traditional Q-switched lasers. PicoWay has received CE Mark indication to treat tattoos of all types and colors and pigmented lesions on any skin type. The new dual wavelength device,

with 532 nm and 1064 nm wavelengths, delivers energy to the skin using pulses which are trillionths of a second, known as picosecond pulses. PicoWay’s high peak power and shortest pulse duration on the market enable a unique mode of action which creates the strongest photo-mechanical impact to break up the tattoo ink or pigmentation into much smaller particles than Q-switched lasers, resulting in most effective clearance in fewer treatments. The revolutionary PicoWay technology is integrated into a proven, reliable Candela platform with full flexibility to adjust wavelength, fluence, spot size and rep rate and a Featherweight™ handpiece with unique ergonomics.

PicoWay Mechanisms of Action The PicoWay from SyneronCandela is a picosecond pulse solidstate laser system intended to treat skin conditions with high pulse energy and extremely short duration in the range of 300-500 picoseconds (ps)1. The device is capable of operation at 1064 nm and 532 nm wavelengths. Effect of pulse duration on treatment efficacy Until now, the most commonly used lasers for tattoo removal employ 5-50 nanosecond (ns)2 pulse durations which are adequate to target micrometer-sized pigment granules because of the comparable thermal relaxation time of the larger particles. These pulse durations are readily generated by Q-switched lasers. Tattoo pigment particle fragmentation occurs from a buildup of pressure, also known as stress, caused by rapid heating of the particle by short laser pulses. For rapid heating of tattoo particles, there are three major sources of photomechanical stress: thermal stress, acoustic stress, and explosive vaporization. Photothermal stress occurs when the expansion of the tattoo particle from rapid heating is restricted by the medium it resides in. As the particle expands during rapid heating, there is pushback from the water and tissues in the skin causing a rise in pressure known as thermal stress, which can be significant and large enough to cause fracture of the particle. Photoacoustic stress occurs when the laser pulse width is so short that the particle cannot expand fast enough, leading to a buildup of pressure which leads to particle fracture. Explosive vaporization occurs when short, thermally confined laser pulses are used which cause the temperature of the tattoo granules

to reach upwards of 1000°C. As heat diffuses into the tissue, the water in the tissue rapidly heats beyond its boiling point and becomes superheated. Once nucleated, the superheated water boils with explosive forces. Resident cells such as macrophages and fibroblasts (for tattoo granules) and melanocytes and keratinocytes (for melanosomes) are ruptured as a result of these forces and release the pigments into the cytoplasm3 where the body is better equipped to clear the pigments via lymphatic drainage and other mechanisms. Similar to selective photothermolysis, thermal stress is optimum when the laser pulse is short compared to both the thermal diffusion time and the acoustic diffusion time and is related to the particle size. Common Q-switched lasers available today have pulse widths of 5ns or more and are clearly not optimum for tattoo clearance procedures. They lack acoustic stress confinement and are just barely thermally confined even at the larger particle sizes. At picosecond laser pulse widths, acoustic stress can be orders of magnitude larger than thermal stress leading to more efficient fracturing for similar pulse energies, particularly for smaller pigmented particles. In addition, with picosecond lasers, less pulse energy is required to achieve similar acoustic fracture pressures, resulting in a reduced risk of scarring.

increased photoacoustic breakup of the target. This allows for effective treatment with lower fluences, thereby decreasing the thermal energy transfer to surrounding tissues and minimizing the risk of scarring. Picoway has pulse durations shorter by an order of magnitude than those of Q-switched lasers allowing the laser energy to reach the pigment more effectively, and with less nteraction with surrounding tissues.

Pigmented Lesions Dyschromia is caused by an imbalance in the amount of melanosomes in skin, either too little (hypopigmentation) or too much (hyperpigmentation) relative to adjacent skin. Melanosomes are normally located in the epidermis but occasionally can break through the basement membrane4 and reside in the upper dermis as in melasma. Similar to tattoo granules, melanosomes are more effectively treated with picosecond pulses compared to nanosecond lasers. Most melanosomes fall into one of two classes, the brown to black eumelanosomes or yellow-reddish pheomelanosomes. Each melanosome is quite large and holds many (1000+) melanin particles, each particle being 10 to 15nm in diameter. Therefore the mechanism of action is predominantly fragmentation of melanosomes and scattering of the melanin particles. PicoWay’s 532nm wavelength delivers more effective treatments for pigmented epidermal lesions due to the 8-fold higher absorption of melanin at 532nm compared to 1064nm. The 1064nm wavelength can be effective if less aggressive treatment is desired or deeper dermal treatments are preferred such as for melasma. Pigmented epidermal lesions include solar lentigines, ephelides, cafÊ au lait macules and seborrheic keratosis, while pigmented dermal lesions include melanocytic nevi, blue nevi, nevus of Ota, and nevus of Ito. Mixed epidermal and dermal pigmented lesions include melasma, Becker’s nevus, nevus spilus, and postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. Tattoo Removal Tattoos consist of thousands of

particles of tattoo pigment suspended in the skin. While normal human growth and healing processes will remove small foreign particles from the skin, tattoo pigment particles are permanent because they aggregate into resident cells and become too large to be removed. To selectively target tattoo ink, the best wavelength is chosen to achieve selective absorption for each ink color, while minimizing the nonspecific thermal effects from the primary endogenous chromophores, hemoglobin and melanin. (Figure 2)

The mechanism for laser removal of tattoos is widely believed to be a twostep process. In the first step, the short laser pulse causes instantaneous fragmentation of ink aggregates into smaller pieces. In the second step, the smaller pieces are then phagocytized5 by macrophages over a period of weeks. These two mechanisms correspond with clinical observations of an immediate reduction in visible pigment in the first week after treatment, followed by gradual fading over the next several weeks. Multiple treatments with increasing laser fluence are necessary as the average aggregate size gets smaller after each treatment.

PicoWay Raises the Bar in State-ofthe-Art Tattoo and Benign Pigmented Lesion Removal By Ilya Petrou M.D Widely viewed as a quantum leap in tattoo removal therapy, picosecond technology is proving to be the most effective, efficient and safest technology currently available for the removal of the broadest range of tattoo colors as well as benign pigmented lesions. As a global leader in the medical device industry, Syneron Medical Ltd. raises the bar in this market niche with the introduction of the PicoWay®, a novel picosecond technology-based laser device that not only distinctly discerns itself from its closest competitors but also the former gold standard Q-switched laser technology.

“Patients are extremely satisfied with the PicoWay. Those who had previous treatments with Q-switched technology are amazed at how fast their tattoos clear, how quickly they heal after treatment and the lower level of treatment discomfort,” said Arielle N.B. Kauvar, M.D., Clinical Professor of Dermatology, New York University School of Medicine, and Director of New York Laser & Skin Care, New York, NY. In stark contrast to other picosecond laser devices on the market that use a single wavelength to address the multitude of tattoo color inks, the PicoWay utilizes two different wavelengths, namely the 532 nm and 1064 nm wavelengths, which enable a more effective and efficient clearing of a broader spectrum of tattoo colors. In addition, the PicoWay achieves this superior clearance with an unprecedented speed of treatment that remains unrivaled among any other currently used technology or device. “The key developments with the PicoWay laser are the dual wavelengths as well as the ultra short, ~500 picosecond pulses. With PicoWay, we can treat a wide range of Fitzpatrick Skin Types and tattoo ink colors. The dual wavelength of 532 nm and 1064 nm enables treatment of a broad spectrum of colors including dark ink colors such as black and blue, as well reds, purples, yellows, oranges and even some greens,” Dr. Kauvar said. With a recently received CE mark and a projected FDA clearance in late 2014, the PicoWay is geared to

take the cosmetic industry by storm, offering cosmetic patients the fastest and most effective removal of tattoos of all types and colors and pigmented lesions on any skin type. The PicoWay has quickly become very popular among physicians and their patients because the innovative laser system can achieve this excellence in tattoo ink and pigmented lesion removal in significantly fewer treatment sessions compared to other technologies such as the once celebrated Q-switched nanosecond laser platforms. “The PicoWay device has set a new standard for the treatment of tattoos. In our practice, we can now offer patients a realistic expectation of complete ink clearance in as few as 5 to 6 treatment sessions, with significantly less pain and a shorter healing time - generally 1 week compared to 2 weeks for Q-switched lasers. Tattoo ink clears approximately twice as fast as with Q-switched/nanosecond domain lasers, and we can safely treat at intervals as short as 2 weeks,” Dr. Kauvar said. One of the fundamental differences between the PicoWay and traditional Q-switched lasers is the length of the pulses that are employed. While traditional Q-switched lasers use nanosecond technology where the pulses are in the billionth of a second, the PicoWay utilizes picosecond technology where the pulse durations are in the trillionth of a second, 100 times shorter than nanosecond pulses. The shorter pulse duration of picosecond technology results in a superior efficacy and efficiency of tattoo ink removal as well as an enhanced treatment comfort and safety for all Fitzpatrick Skin Types. The PicoWay has been proven to efficiently remove the entire spectrum of colors, including some greens and according to Dr. Kauvar, the only truly resistant color seems to be certain light blues and mint greens. With the exception of these colors however, most tattoos are completely removed within 5-6 treatments. “PicoWay is definitely a game changer. There is a huge segment of the population that currently has one or more professional tattoos, as much as 25 percent of the population under age 40, and approximately half of those are

unhappy with their tattoos. Knowing that you can remove your tattoo in 5 to 6 treatments over a 3 to 4 month period rather than 15 or more sessions over 1 to 2 years makes tattoo removal a realistic possibility for so many people who previously would not consider this option,” Dr. Kauvar said. Traditional Q-switched nanosecond lasers largely rely on the action of selective photothermolysis where the tattoo ink or the melanin in pigmented lesions are targeted and subsequently broken down into smaller sized particles via a photoacoustic effect, after which they are phagocytized and removed from the body. The PicoWay, in contrast, with its high peak power and ultra short pulse duration enables a unique mechanism of action that creates the strongest photomechanical impact, stronger than any other picosecond technology-based device currently available, and breaks down the targeted tattoo ink or melanin in pigmented lesions into even smaller fragments than can then be more efficiently and easily removed from the body over time, without any increased risk of adverse events. “The 1064 nm is perfectly safe in all phototypes, with treatments delivered on a biweekly basis. We have used the 532 nm wavelength in skin types I-IV without witnessing any hypopigmentation,” Dr. Kauvar said. A significant benefit in using a shorter pulse and higher energy is that less energy is required to cause a stress fracture in the targeted tattoo particles. The use of less energy should result in a more rapid healing time as well as potentially less textural changes in the targeted skin, leading to superior cosmetic outcomes. PicoWay’s unique mode of picosecond action enables a full flexibility to adjust the wavelength, fluence, spot size and repetition rate, allowing for individualized treatments that ensure excellent clinical outcomes. “PicoWay is definitely emerging as the standard of care in tattoo removal and in my opinion, there is currently no other technology available that is as safe and effective for this indication. As more experience is gained using this technology for pigmented lesions, we will definitely see additional advantages to using this technology for other indications,” Dr. Kauvar said.
