“We are very pleased to receive FDA 510(k) clearance with a specific clinical indication that enables Apyx Medical to market and sell our Renuvion Cosmetic Technology to surgeons and patients for use in approximately 200,000 wrinkle reduction procedures performed in the U.S. annually,” said Charlie Goodwin, President and Chief Executive Officer. “This milestone represents one of the most important achievements of our organization since we began our multi-year strategy to position Apyx Medical for long-term success in the U.S. cosmetic surgery market, and I would like to thank our clinical and regulatory teams for making it possible. The receipt of regulatory clearance reflects the strong safety and efficacy profile of our Renuvion Cosmetic Technology, as demonstrated by the results of our U.S. IDE clinical study published in February.”
