Syneron Medical Ltd. (Nasdaq:ELOS), Yokneam, Israel, and its Chinese distributor, Miracle Laser, have announced that the State Food & Drug Administration (SFDA) of the People's Republic of China has granted regulatory approval to sell Syneron's products in China.

The SFDA approval is a significant milestone in Syneron's penetration of one of the world's largest aesthetic medical laser device markets. "The Chinese regulatory environment has matured in recent years to match the high quality expectations of the Chinese consumer," noted Thomas Goslau, Syneron's Director of Marketing & Sales for Asia-Pacific. "The SFDA approval firmly endorses and validates our products in the eyes of our customers, who must still deal with the numerous low-cost and non-approved foreign products that have flooded the Chinese market."

The approval comes on the heels of Syneron and Miracle Laser signing a strategic partnership agreement to develop the Chinese market for Syneron's elos(TM) (Electro-Optical Synergy) product platforms. Ms. Vivian Peng, CEO of Miracle Laser added, "We are excited to have Syneron as a strategic partner in the Chinese market. Syneron's strong record of efficacy and safety in Asia, backed by SFDA approval, will support and energize our aggressive and combined effort to rapidly penetrate the market."

"Miracle has demonstrated itself to be the most powerful company in China for the distribution of innovative high-end light technologies for aesthetic medicine," commented Shimon Eckhouse, Syneron's chairman and inventor of the elos and IPL technologies. "Their reputation for outstanding customer support matches our 'Ultimate Customer Care' philosophy and we are proud to have them on board."

The Syneron platforms are based on Syneron's proprietary elos technology, which combines optical energy and electrical energy (bi-polar radio frequency) to enable a wide range of highly efficient, safe and cost-effective medical aesthetic treatments on all skin types.
