Allergan Aesthetics, an AbbVie company, announces the successful completion of its acquisition of Soliton Inc.

The addition of Soliton and its technology complements Allergan Aesthetics’ portfolio of non-invasive body contouring treatments to now include a proven treatment for the appearance of cellulite.

The RESONIC device initially received US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for the short-term improvement in the appearance of cellulite, and that clearance has now been expanded to long-term improvement up to one year. In recent clinical data submitted to the FDA, RESONIC demonstrated significant improvement in the appearance of cellulite and 97.6% of participants (n=67) found there was good improvement in the appearance of cellulite at 52-weeks post-treatment.  

“We welcome the Soliton team to Allergan Aesthetics and the opportunity to offer health care providers and their patients a new, non-invasive option to reduce the appearance of cellulite. In a recent survey of aesthetics consumers, cellulite was cited as a top 5 aesthetic concern, and this technology offers a new approach to treatment.”

— Carrie Strom, President, Global Allergan Aesthetics and Senior Vice President, AbbVie

RESONIC has also received FDA 510(k) clearance for use in conjunction with laser for black ink tattoo removal in Fitzpatrick Skin Type I-III patients.
