HOUSTON, April 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Soliton, Inc., (NASDAQ: SOLY) ("Soliton" or the "Company"), a medical device company with a novel and proprietary platform technology licensed from The University of Texas on behalf of the MD Anderson Cancer Center ("MD Anderson"), today announced that Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi of Capital Laser and Skin Care will present preliminary data from its completed cellulite clinical trial at the SCALE (Symposium for Cosmetic Advances and Laser Education) conference in Nashville, Tennessee to be held May 9-11, 2019.
The proof of concept study, conducted by Dr. Michael Kaminer at SkinCare Physicians in Boston, MA, in collaboration with Dr. Tanzi, was designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Soliton's acoustic pulse device for the reduction of cellulite. The data presented will reflect results from a single acoustic pulse treatment, operating at a higher power level than the Company's RAP device intended for tattoo removal, at the 12-week timepoint. Dr. Tanzi will also review preclinical data that appears to support what the Company believes may be a new method for treating cellulite.
"There has been a lot of anticipation surrounding the potential for our technology as a stand-alone treatment for cellulite," commented Dr. Chris Capelli, President and CEO of Soliton, "especially considering the preclinical data suggesting that our unique acoustic pulses may be capable of achieving results only thought possible with invasive therapies. Considering that our technology is non-invasive and has been well tolerated by our trial participants, our goal has been to deliver clinically significant results without patient discomfort or downtime. We believe the upcoming presentation by Dr. Tanzi will be an important indicator of our progress and potential."
Drs. Kaminer and Tanzi are members of Soliton's Advisory Board.
