concerns. With this approval, we look forward to positively impacting
revenue in this market.”

partners with Cutera for several years, and have performed many clinical
studies with their research team for advancing aesthetic technology.
With Secret RF, we’ve expanded our capabilities to provide patients
individualized treatments, based on their skin concerns, skin type and
lifestyle needs. With the adjustable levels of radio frequency and
different tip sizes, we are able to go to different depths of delivering
the right amount of energy to remodel the skin and generate collagen.
Patient satisfaction is very high after only 1 or 2 treatments.”

procedures are the #2 aesthetic procedure that consumers are
considering, after non-invasive body shaping.
