Rapid Acoustic Pulse (RAP) device—RESONIC, achieves 75% greater fading of tattoos in fewer sessions and improves the appearance of cellulite, says the company.
RESONIC, manufactured by Soliton Inc for tattoo removal and cellulite reduction, will be available through a select network of physicians and medically supervised spas beginning in June 2021. The anticipated Rapid Acoustic Pulse (RAP) device is a dual-platform that is built to utilize a first-of-its-kind technology, offering a paradigm-shifting approach to these two in-demand procedures.
According to the company, by harnessing the power of sound, RESONIC helps achieve 75% greater fading of tattoos in as few as three sessions and improves the appearance of cellulite non-invasively with high patient satisfaction after just one treatment session.
“This is an exciting day for Soliton and the RESONIC brand,” shared Brad Hauser, president, and chief executive officer of Soliton. “It’s been a long time in the making and we’re excited to finally bring this innovative and efficacious solution to procedures that have had historically low patient satisfaction or required numerous treatment sessions to achieve expected results.”
Launching RESONIC with two unique indications has been a strategic goal of ours since receiving our first FDA clearance in 2019. This approach enables our HCP partners to drive multiple revenue streams among two different patient profiles with one device, positioning our partners for accelerated practice growth, and poising RESONIC to become a leading aesthetics brand,” added Hauser.
The RESONIC device is designed to safely deliver rapid, high-pressure acoustic shockwaves at a rate of up to 100 pulses per second, resulting in the physical change of targeted cellular structures without creating cavitation or heating that could result in surrounding tissue damage, said the company. The Rapid Acoustic Pulse technology creates a new standard in tattoo removal when used as an accessory to a Q-Switched laser, to allow for multiple laser passes, and up to 44% fading in a single session with tattoo removal in as few as three sessions.
Soliton also pointed out that the technology safely and non-invasively physically changes fibrous septa bands beneath the skin that cause cellulite to deliver efficacious results in just one, 45 to 60-minute treatment with minimal discomfort and without downtime.
Elizabeth Tanzi, MD, board certified dermatologist, who is also a Soliton scientific advisory board member said,”The technology’s ability to physically change targeted cellular structures without breaking the skin is game changing. Clinical trial results for both RESONIC procedures showed significant results with accelerated treatment timelines, which I believe will result in higher patient satisfaction and will minimize common barriers to entry that exist for tattoo removal and cellulite reduction.”
