The Soliton Approach to Cellulite Acoustic Subcision Cellulite Dimples Epidermis Dermis Fat Cells Fibrous Septa Septa contracts and becomes sclerotic holding Our device emits rapid acoustic shock wave portions of the skin with a non-flexible length of septa pulses that are transmitted through the skin This results in areas of the skin being pulled down to break apart or “shear” the fibrotic septa while adjacent sections bulge outward resulting in dimples and ridges Soliton has not yet received FDA pre-market clearance for the cellulite indication 23
