Zift Medical

Zift Medical

Zift Medical is developing technology intended to shift cosmetic procedure patients from a highly invasive operation under general anesthesia in an operating room to a minimally invasive procedure using local anesthetic in a clinic setting.

This minimally invasive procedure, called a ZiftLift™, uses a platform technology to secure soft tissue to bone. Cosmetic procedures such as forehead or brow lifts are the first target market. With this technology, patients see immediate effects with minimal discomfort and fast recovery time.

Reducing the barriers to cosmetic procedures, such as invasiveness, discomfort and long recovery times, increases the potential patient population. Moving to a clinic setting expands the provider base to include multiple specialties such as Dermatologists, Plastic, Facial Plastic and Oculoplastic Surgeons.

Technology, creative and professional services, along with domain knowledge traditionally only afforded to Fortune 500 companies should be readily available to practices at an affordable price and provide them a strategic advantage against their competition. In addition, these advancements in technology should bring scale and transparency to the key performance indicators of the practice and patient acquisition spectrum.

Soltego-Logo

SOLTÉGO

SOLTÉGO is an early stage specialty biopharmaceutical and aesthetic innovator advancing the science of skin darkening, sun prevention, and anti-aging by harnessing the body’s own healing power and delivering proven biological activity.

Based on their disruptive technology, the founders created SOLTÉGO in late 2017.  SOLTÉGO is an emerging player in two distinct areas: Pharmaceutical for several therapeutic indications, including certain forms of Albinism and Vitiligo and Physician Dispensed Skincare. The breakthrough proprietary and innovative technology is based on the science of salt-inducible kinase inhibitors (SIK inhibitors), designed to help protect the skin against UV induced photo-damage and aging skin. This technology will create a new class of products in Physician Dispensed Skincare. The activation of the tanning/pigmentation pathway by this new class of small molecules is physiologically identical to UV-induced pigmentation (darkening) without the DNA-damaging effects of UV.  In the case of Albinism and Vitiligo, in certain patient populations, these novel compounds may improve the ability of resident skin melanocytes to produce dark pigment restore the normal look and function.

SOLTÉGO’s unique patented technology triggers melanin production to darken and protect the skin against UV-induced skin damage and cancer formation, SOLTÉGO owns a library of ingredients, which have been proven in pharmacology models to be safe and highly effective.
