WESTFORD, Mass., April 30, 2013

WESTFORD, Mass., April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Cynosure, Inc. (NASDAQ: CYNO)
today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2013.

Financial Highlights
Revenues for the first quarter of 2013 increased 19% to $40.7 million from
$34.2 million for the same period of 2012, reflecting top-line growth across
all geographic regions.

On an adjusted basis, excluding costs associated with the Company's pending
acquisition of Palomar Medical Technologies, Inc., net income for the first
quarter of 2013 was $2.1 million, or $0.12 per diluted share. Net income
under GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles), which includes the
acquisition-related costs, was $1.2 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for
the first quarter of 2013, compared with $0.8 million, or $0.06 per diluted
share, for the first quarter of 2012.

"Higher revenue, a favorable product mix and strong operating leverage
contributed to a positive first quarter for Cynosure," said Cynosure's
President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Davin. "Laser product revenue
increased 21 percent to $34.1 million from $28.1 million for the same period
of 2012. Each of our distribution channels posted year-over-year gains, with
particularly robust growth coming from our North American direct sales
channel, our Asian subsidiaries and third-party distributors. These results
speak to the success of both new product introductions in the United States
and a number of recent marketing clearances we have received in key
international territories."

The first quarter of 2013 was highlighted by Cynosure's U.S. launch of its
newest flagship product, the non-invasive PicoSure™ Picosecond Laser
Workstation, at the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Annual Meeting in
March. PicoSure is the world's first picosecond laser indicated for the
removal of tattoos and benign pigmented lesions.

"Coming off of the successful introduction at AAD, demand for PicoSure has
been positive, with the revenue ramp slightly steeper than we had anticipated
at this early point after the launch," Davin said. "While we do not break out
revenue by individual product, PicoSure is on pace to achieve the $10 million
sales target we have historically established for the introduction of our
flagship laser systems in their first full year on the market."

Gross profit margin on a GAAP basis for the three months ended March 31, 2013
increased to 58.2%, compared with 57.1% for the same period of 2012,
reflecting a favorable product mix and greater efficiency in the 2013 period.

On an adjusted basis, excluding the acquisition-related costs, the Company's
total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2013 were $20.6 million, or
51% of revenues. On a GAAP basis, including costs related to the acquisition,
total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2013 were $21.7 million, or
53% of revenues, compared with $18.7 million, or 55% of revenues, for the
first quarter of 2012. The increase in operating expenses, exclusive of
acquisition costs, was primarily due to higher selling and marketing expenses
to support sales growth, research and development costs associated with
PicoSure, and clinical research development.

Recent Highlights

  oIn March, Cynosure and Palomarannounced the signing of a definitive
    agreement pursuant to which Cynosure will acquire Palomar in a cash and
    stock transaction valued at approximately $294 million, creating one of
    the world's premier aesthetic laser and light-based companies.The
    transaction is expected to close by the end of June 2013.
  oIn April, Cynosure's technology was showcased in 16 scientific abstracts
    presented at LASER 2013, the 33rd Annual Scientific Conference of the
    American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. The clinical research
    included four abstracts intended to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of
    the Company's PicoSure picosecond Alexandrite laser technology.
  oCynosure recently received several international marketing clearances as
    well European CE marking for PicoSure. The Company expects to begin
    marketing PicoSure in the European Union through direct offices beginning
    in thesecond quarter. Other recent marketing clearances include:
    Cellulaze™ Cellulite Laser Workstation (Colombia, Saudi Arabia and
    Singapore); Elite+™ and Apogee+™ (Korea and Saudi Arabia); SmoothShapes®
    XV (Hong Kong and Korea); Elite MPX™ (Taiwan) and the RevLite® and
    MedLite® C6 (Australia).

Business Outlook
"We are off to a strong start in 2013 and optimistic about maintaining our
forward momentum as we progress through this year and beyond," Davin said. "We
have several catalysts on the horizon, including the first full quarter of

"In addition, we expect our pending acquisition of Palomar Medical
Technologies to close by the end of June 2013," Davin said. "The transaction
would complement and broaden our product lineup with the addition of Palomar's
Diode and Intense Pulsed Light fractional aesthetic systems, would double the
number of patents in our portfolio and would enhance our global distribution

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance
with GAAP, Cynosure uses non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS. The
presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in
isolation or as asubstitute for the financial information prepared and
presented in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures includedin
this press release exclude $1.1 million of costs associated with the
acquisition of Palomar, or $839 thousand, net of tax. Thisexclusion may be
different from, and therefore not comparable to, similar measures used by
other companies. 

Cynosure's management believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide
meaningful supplemental information regarding ourperformance by excluding the
acquisition-related costs that may not be indicative of our core business
operating results. Cynosurebelieves that both management and investors
benefit from referring to the non-GAAP financial measures in assessing
Cynosure'sperformance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future
periods. The non-GAAP financial measures also facilitates
management'sinternal comparisons to Cynosure's historical performance and our
competitors' operating results. Cynosure believes that the non-GAAP measures
are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to
supplemental information used by management inourfinancial and operational
decision making.
