Solta Medical Donates Fraxel re:store(R) Laser System to Grossman Burn Foundation

NEWPORT COAST, Calif., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Solta Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: SLTM) today announced the donation of a Fraxel re:store laser system to the Grossman Burn Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Grossman Burn Center, a worldwide leader in innovative treatment and care for burn patients and their families. The Fraxel re:store system will be used to reduce the appearance of scarring caused by traumatic thermal damage.

"Solta Medical is pleased to donate a Fraxel re:store system to the Grossman Burn Foundation to treat patients' scars and help in their recovery," said Stephen J. Fanning, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO of Solta Medical, Inc. "The Grossman Burn Foundation is well known for their humanitarian efforts to assist burn victims and their families throughout the world, and we applaud their efforts to provide highly-skilled non-profit reconstructive surgery."

Fraxel re:store laser treatment resurfaces damaged skin to uncover the smoother, healthier skin underneath. For burn victims, Fraxel re:store treatment penetrates the outer layers of damaged skin (epidermis) and reaches deeper layers of skin (dermis) where collagen and elastin are located. The laser columns stimulate a natural healing process that produces new collagen to replace the damaged tissue with new, healthy skin cells, and improve the skin's overall tone and texture. As the original fractional laser technology, Fraxel re:store has been FDA-cleared to treat a number of skin conditions including: acne scars, surgical scars, actinic keratoses, age spots/sunspots, melasma and wrinkles around the eyes.

"We are extremely grateful for this generous and important donation by Solta Medical," said Rebecca Grossman, Chair of the Grossman Burn Foundation. "The goal of restorative burn care is to return the patient to as close to pre-injury status as possible.  Often that requires multiple surgeries combining both reconstructive and aesthetic work. We plan to use the cutting-edge Fraxel technology to restore our burn-injured patients and play a key role in providing better and faster patient outcomes."


The Grossman Burn Foundation (GBF), the non-profit philanthropic arm of the Grossman Burn Center, provides burn care and medical resources in developing countries throughout the world. In addition to the ongoing surgical treatment of individual burn survivors, GBF projects include: the operation of a burn center in Kabul, Afghanistan; a global Humanitarian Assistance Manual for individuals in need of serious medical treatment; a physician triage training program for doctors in underdeveloped countries; and the development and distribution of satellite based telemedicine equipment to doctors and first responders in remote areas of the world. Additionally, the GBF is developing the "Stop Violence Against Women Globally" campaign. Founded in 1969, the Grossman Burn Center (GBC) is the largest plastic surgery-based burn practice in the western United States, providing acute and reconstructive burn care, rehabilitation, and post-treatment emotional and psychological support. Headquartered in Los Angeles, the GBC has three additional centers in California and Louisiana and is in the midst of a national expansion. In early 2010, the GBC is moving its headquarters to a new state-of-the-art surgical facility at West Hills Hospital and Medical Center in West Hills, Calif.
