Date:1/15/2009

Larger Tip Enables Physicians to Perform Thermage Body Area Treatments Twice as Fast and Improves Patient Treatment Experience

HAYWARD, Calif., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Solta Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: SLTM) today announced the launch of its new Body Tip 16.0 for the Thermage NXT system for faster, more comfortable body shaping, contouring and cellulite treatments. With five times the surface area coverage of traditional Thermage tips, Body Tip 16.0 cuts body shaping and contouring procedure time in half. In addition, the introduction of an innovative energy delivery system, Comfort Pulse Technology, to the Body Tip 16.0 helps improve overall patient comfort.

"The improved patient comfort associated with the Thermage Body Tip 16.0 provides a significant benefit to my patients, who get the same or better tightening and contouring results with improved comfort," said Robert Weiss, MD, of the Maryland Laser, Skin and Vein Institute. "In addition, the shorter procedure time improves the experience for my staff and the overall value for my practice."

To increase comfort for patients, the Body Tip 16.0 uses Comfort Pulse Technology, a proprietary energy delivery system that gradually reduces the amount of energy delivered in a succession of short, rapid pulses during treatment. By tapering the amount of heat applied in each pulse, patients enjoy more tolerable treatments, while still maintaining the same body tightening and firming results from Thermage treatments.

"The Body Tip 16.0 offers new levels of speed and comfort to my patients who are seeking the benefits of Thermage body shaping treatments including advanced skin tightening and firming," said Michael Kaminer, SkinCare Physicians of Chestnut Hill, MA. "For the first time, I am now able to complete body contouring procedures in under an hour with less discomfort, yet still provide the same positive results that patients expect from Thermage non-invasive aesthetics treatments."

Deep heating and cooling capabilities also ensure that physicians can treat body shaping and cellulite patients with a single tip. These product enhancements enable more treatments to be performed in the same amount of time as well as the type of body areas that can be treated with the Thermage NXT system.

"Thermage is committed to developing breakthrough products that increase physician and patient satisfaction," said Stephen J. Fanning, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO of Thermage. "The Body Tip 16.0 is another example of how we continue to innovate to improve upon the value of Thermage treatments for our physician customers, providing them with tools to enhance their treatment offerings and also increase the viability of their businesses."

The Thermage Body Tip 16.0 is now available worldwide. The tip recently received European CE Mark approval and received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in January 2008.
