Solta Medical Presents Expert Roundtable about Thermage(R) and Fraxel(R) Combination Treatments at ASLMS Annual Meeting

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md, April 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Solta Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: SLTM) will present an expert panel of physicians in skin tightening and resurfacing today from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the 29th Annual Meeting of American Society for Lasers in Medicine & Surgery (ASLMS). The roundtable discussion will feature Drs. Brian Biesman, Michael Kaminer, Tina Alster, Amy Taub and Robert Weiss discussing their experiences combining Thermage and Fraxel procedures to deliver effective clinical outcomes for patients.

    The distinguished panel will discuss their experiences with:
      --   Clinical outcomes based on nearly 10,000 Thermage and Fraxel
           procedures performed
      --   Treatment protocols and patient selection of the combined procedure
      --   Marketing and patient education

Beginning on Sunday, April 5, the roundtable will be available via webcast at and through a unique partnership with the web-based educational forum.

"By combining the Thermage and Fraxel procedures sequentially, our experience has shown greater tightening and greater smoothing of the skin than with either procedure alone," said Robert Weiss, MD, founder of the Maryland Laser, Skin and Vein Institute. "We sometimes refer to the enhanced effect of both procedures combined as the '1 + 1 = 3' effect, as patients see the benefits of greater tightening from Thermage and greater smoothing from Fraxel than could be achieved by either modality alone." You can download Dr. Weiss's white paper titled: The Sequential Combination of Thermage(R) and Fraxel(R) Treatments Results in Synergistic Improvements at

"Thermage and Fraxel provide proven and trusted results, with minimal downtime and at a fraction of the cost of surgery," said Stephen J. Fanning, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO of Solta Medical, Inc. "Physicians who offer both Thermage for skin tightening and Fraxel for skin resurfacing give their business a competitive advantage by providing the two leading treatments patients ask for by name."

According to a recent report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), demand for minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures grew by 5% to 10.4 million procedures in 2008. The study also found that surgical procedures fell 9% in 2008, the first such decline since 2004(1).

Several physicians presenting at ASLMS will discuss their clinical findings using Thermage and Fraxel systems. A sample of these presentations is listed below.
