BRISBANE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CUTERA, INC., (Nasdaq: CUTR) ("Cutera" or the "Company") a leading provider of laser, light and other energy-based aesthetic systems for practitioners worldwide, announced today that Brazil's healthcare regulatory authority, Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária ("ANVISA"), recently granted regulatory approval for truSculpt® iD and truSculpt 3D systems. The truSculpt family of devices use innovative monopolar radiofrequency technology to elevate tissue temperature for fat reduction and are approved by ANVISA for body sculpting and contouring, circumferential reduction, the treatment of skin laxity, and for the improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
"Brazil is a large and fast-growing aesthetic market, and we are pleased to add this to our product offerings in Brazil and selected markets throughout South America," said Cutera's Chief Executive Officer, David Mowry. "truSculpt is enormously popular for patients seeking body contouring treatments in the United States. This ANVISA clearance allows us to further partner with our South American physician customers to enhance their practices," added Jason Richey, Cutera's President.
Sao Paulo-based Endocrinologist, Dr. Elaine Dias Jakubowski, is the first provider to introduce the truSculpt technology into her practice in Brazil. "We've been monitoring the progress of body sculpting technologies from Cutera in the US for some time now and have researched the options for the best body shaping device. We are pleased with truSculpt's clinical results, its ability to treat all different patient body types, as well as its best-in-class design and functionality. With radiofrequency (RF) technology, we are excited to begin offering this service to patients looking to reduce body fat in stubborn areas, where diet and exercise alone don't achieve the desired results. We look forward to growing our practice in Sao Paulo through truSculpt."
Research shows the Latin American market for energy-based devices (EBD), including body shaping and aesthetics, was $211M in 2018, with a projected 5-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10%.1
Commercial shipments of truSculpt systems to Brazil are expected to begin immediately.
The Company launched truSculpt iD in the US in 2018, and truSculpt 3D in 2017.
