Quantifying the Postpartum Opportunity It’s generally accepted that new moms face a unique set of physical and emotional challenges once pregnancy and childbirth are complete. But as manufacturer of VelaShape II – the leading non-invasive body shaping technology – Syneron required more data to support our thinking that the postpartum patient market may represent a fresh opportunity of growth for our customers. This is why we commissioned a “New Moms” survey to gain a unique insight into the mindset of moms and their post-pregnancy bodies. We also conducted a clinical trial to measure how VelaShape technology can effectively treat these patients.

VelaShape Study: Demographics • 20 patients, all females • All women were treated on the abdomen and another site • All women were previously pregnant (on average 11 years earlier)

51-60 20%

Thighs 20% 41-50 50%

31-40 20%

Buttocks 30%

Abdomen 50%

21-30 10%

Patient Age Average age 43.7 ± 1.7 years (27-56 years)

The results are clear: VelaShape technology is in fact an in-demand, efficacious solution for women looking to restore their “Body After Baby.”

Treatment Areas Overview 40 anatomical areas treated, 2 sites per patient

Results: Circumferential Reduction • Following 5 weekly treatments, the average circumferential reduction was 5.93 ± 0.79 cm

Moms Speak Out: Survey Snapshot A survey of 500 women who had a child within the last 8 years was conducted by M/A/R/C Research to get more details about which parts of their bodies are of most concern, what causes these body image concerns, and what lifestyle changes these women have made since having children/a child.

• In percentage reduction vs. baseline: 6.07 ± 0.69%

• 71% of new moms report that they feel less physically attractive after having their baby.

• Anatomical Areas of Improvement – Abdomen responds the best – 7.37 cm (2.9 in) reduction – Buttocks – 5.93 cm (2.3 in) reduction – Thighs – 2.50 cm (1 in) reduction

• Women reported that even if they were able to lose some or all of their pregnancy weight, 88% could not get back their pre-baby stomach.

• No significant change in patients’ weight (167.9 vs. 167.7 lb)

Key findings include:

• Response to treatment was limited to erythema and edema that lasted several hours. These phenomena are derived from the delivery of energy to the tissue and are considered treatment end point indicators (40-42 °C).
