The new parent company of Fraxel and Thermage Inc – Solta Medical Inc., recently announced plans to open an Aesthetic Center in California that will function as an R&D hub and a physician training facility.
The activities within the center will focus on all of the innovative AED technologies that have been brought together under the Solta Medical name.
The center is said to incorporate a biomedical engineering lab and an in-house clinic, both of which will allow physicians to take part in ongoing research. Dermatologist Vic Narurkar says (in the press release) the center “will allow the company’s optics and biomedical engineers to share data and receive immediate clinical feedback about their work in new product development and existing product enhancement.”
A grand opening of the new facility will coincide with the 67th annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology in San Francisco, which will bring together many industry professionals for in-depth discussions and presentations on topics like laser resurfacing and skin tightening.
All of these new developments and collaborations in the field create an environment in which it is not unreasonable to expect some exciting new technological advancements in the cosmetic surgery and dermatology industry.
