Cynosure UK Ltd

Established in 1991, Cynosure consolidated its medical aesthetic device portfolio with several key acquisitions of Palomar, Con Bio and Ellman during the last decade. Cynosure means ‘a person or thing that is the center of attention or admiration’ and the company prides itself on its products being the pinnacle of those available for its customer to ensure it lives up to this admiration. Cynosure itself was then acquired in 2017 by Hologic Inc, the USA’s leading developer and supplier of premium diagnostic products and medical imaging systems for breast and skeletal health, and GYN surgical products. With Cynosure now becoming the 4th division of this scientific driven company, the support and investment into on-going development and improvement of its product portfolio is secured. The UK team has 5 sales reps that operate up and down the UK, in specific territory splits.
