In February, Solta Medical acquired privately held Sound Surgical Technologies. The unification of these two companies creates, yet again, another global leader in the market of medical aesthetic devices for physicians and plastic surgeons.
Sound Surgical Technologies has primarily focused on their VASAR body contouring product line, which use low-frequency ultrasound therapy to treat the fatty layer of the skin. Solta has been the global leader in the fractional laser space, focusing on skin rejuvenation and body contouring, such as Fraxel, Clear + Brillant body contouring, Lipsonix and Thermage. The joining of these companies, not only creates a medical aesthetic powerhouse, but also expands the market reach and opportunity for Solta.
“With this acquisition, we have added another strong, complimentary product to our broad portfolio of leading aesthetic brands and we have expanded our market opportunity.” – Stephen J. Fannins, Chairman, President and CEO of Solta
