The Israel-based aesthetic medical device maker sued EndyMed in October 2012, claiming that EndyMed infringes on 2 patents for an energy-based skin tightening technology. Syneron's devices apply ablative energy to the skin, and the company took issue with EndyMed's Pro and Glow skin tightening systems and related devices.

EndyMed and Eclipse agreed to stop selling the devices, ending Syneron's quest for permanent injunction over the patents, according to the release. Syneron Medical manufactures medical aesthetic devices, primarily for hair removal and skin tightening.
