The noninvasive, energy-based body contouring category just got a little more competitive.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted 510(k) clearance to Ellman International Inc’s PelleFirm™ RF Body Treatment System. The system uses radiofrequency energy to firm skin in the abdomen, arms, buttocks, and thighs, and to temporarily reduce cellulite.
Ellman plans to launch the PelleFirm System at the upcoming Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology beginning March 21, 2014, in Denver.
The system is comprised of two new, large-diameter handpieces sized for the body that elevate tissue temperature up to 45 degrees Celsius, coupled with mechanical massage heads for treating cellulite. Like Pellevé® Wrinkle Reduction System, PelleFirm RF Body Treatment system delivers visible results with no pain and no downtime. Multiple treatment sessions are needed to achieve maximum results.
These new PelleFirm RF Body treatment devices are compatible with the recently released Enhanced Pellevé S5 Generator, as well as the large worldwide installed base of the original Pellevé S5 Generators from Ellman.
