Solta Medical launches illumiNATION tour in Canada to preview new Thermage
CPT(TM), Fraxel re:store(R) Dual and Isolaz(TM) systems

TORONTO, May 13 /CNW Telbec/ - Solta Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: SLTM) is proud to introduce Thermage CPT, Fraxel re:store Dual and Isolaz systems in Canada with the illumiNATION tour (www.illumiNATIONtour.com). Starting today and continuing through mid-June, the illumiNATION tour is bringing the latest breakthroughs in Thermage(R), Fraxel(R) and Isolaz(R) systems directly to physicians across Canada.

The tour will travel from city-to-city aboard a classic- but modernized - Airstream(R) trailer outfitted with Thermage, Fraxel and Isolaz treatment stations. The sleek, iconic Airstream continues to be celebrated for its eye-catching, innovative design and remains the epitome of style and glamour on the road. Solta Medical is bringing that same timeless yet modern style and beauty to Toronto and other cities to demonstrate how these new treatments can help Canadians look younger and feel fabulous without the need for invasive procedures.

"Since I specialize in non-surgical facial and body rejuvenation, Thermage fits perfectly into my practice to tighten and lift sagging jowls, eyelids, arms, tummy and thighs," said Martie Gidon, MD, a cosmetic dermatologist with Gidon Aesthetics & MedSpa in Toronto. "Only one treatment is required and there are no needles and little downtime and my patients appear younger and refreshed."

"The new Thermage CPT and Fraxel re:store Dual systems represent the next generation of anti-aging treatments and are now better than ever for skin tightening and skin resurfacing," said Stephen J. Fanning, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO of Solta Medical, Inc. "I am confident these innovative new products will change the way people think about aesthetic procedures. We believe such breakthrough systems deserve a unique introduction to the market, and the illumiNATION tour is the first of its kind in the aesthetic industry."

The Canadian tour kicks off in Quebec City on May 13 and will continue to travel the country until mid-June. Appointments are available for physicians and their staff to evaluate the new Thermage and Fraxel systems as well as learn about the Isolaz system.

"Fraxel is effective in treating lines wrinkles, brown spots and acne scarring," said Gidon, MD. "In addition to using Thermage and Fraxel, I also frequently treat acne patients with the Isolaz system because it features both a vacuum that cleans out pores and a broadband light that destroys bacteria and controls oil production. My patients often report reduced redness and flattening of their blemishes within days of receiving the treatment."
