HOUSTON, Sept. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Soliton, Inc., (Nasdaq: SOLY) ("Soliton" or the "Company"), a medical device company with a novel and proprietary aesthetic platform technology, today announced it has entered into a distribution and sales agreement with Aesthetic Solutions, Inc. to distribute its Rapid Acoustic Pulse (RAP) device and advanced design cartridges during the initial U.S. commercial launch, targeted for the first half of 2021.
The team at Aesthetic Solutions, Inc. will strategically focus on and target placement of the RAP device in physician practices that currently treat high volumes of patients for tattoo removal and cellulite reduction, upon FDA clearance. Their team will sell and service the RAP devices until Soliton's direct sales force is fully established for the expected national rollout.
