Chief Executive Officer Joseph P. Caruso commented, "We are pleased with the continued growth of our professional business as we expand and make key investments in all areas. This quarter was the tenth consecutive quarter of product revenue growth year over year. We have started upgrading our existing customers with our newest flagship platform, the Palomar Icon" Aesthetic System. We have begun in North America and other strategic parts of the world. We also placed many Icon systems with new customers. We are still in the regulatory registration process for many countries and will continue to sell the popular StarLux 500® system in those countries until all registrations are complete. The Icon platform is the next generation of aesthetic system with melanin detection technology, high peak powers, state of the art cooling, built-in calibration, and an intuitive user interface to provide fast treatments with excellent outcomes and superior user experience."
Mr. Caruso added, "In April, we expanded our professional product line with a low price non-ablative fractional laser named the Emerge" Fractional Laser. We have leveraged many of our consumer products technologies and manufacturing processes to substantially reduce cost and enable us to offer this entry level professional system at a very attractive price. The attractive price is intended to expand our customer base and allow us to cross sell our full line of professional laser and light-based aesthetic systems. Physician feedback has been very positive. The Emerge provides our sales force with a product offering for the current economic environment and full portfolio of professional products to meet all levels of demand."
Mr. Caruso continued, "Our consumer product strategy continues to move along according to plan. We are using the PaloVia® Skin Renewing Laser® to gain valuable knowledge of the market and collect feedback from the retail channel and our consumers. This new category of light-based aesthetic products is providing us with access to a base of consumers that has never been exposed to our professional products or technology."
