Merz Aesthetics® Offers The SaltFacial® to help practices expand revenue streams and meet customer demand

New quarterly webinar series launches to help educate on this gateway product.

Merz Aesthetics, the world’s largest dedicated medical aesthetics business, and SaltMED, a medical device company focused on innovative aesthetic medical technology, today announced the extension of their commercial agreement adding The SaltFacial by SaltMED to the portfolio of products offered by Merz Aesthetics. The SaltFacial is a skin rejuvenation system that targets the texture, tone and color of skin to reveal a more vibrant look.

The SaltFacial features three technologies – natural sea salt resurfacing, aesthetic ultrasound and high-intensity L.E.D. phototherapy – in an all-in-one ergonomically designed system. The SaltFacial can be used as a stand-alone treatment. The SaltFacial Skin Renewal System was designed so that any of the three technologies can be used independently.

“The SaltFacial device is a great complement to the Merz Aesthetics portfolio of products in practices. This includes our award-winning Neocutis® line of products, for expertly formulated post-treatment skincare to give your skin the customized, special attention it deserves*,” said Patrick Urban, president, Merz Aesthetics, North America. “Demand for medical aesthetics procedures continues to increase, especially among younger adults, and this collaboration continues to position Merz Aesthetics as a premier provider with this emerging and important customer base.”

The SaltFacial by SaltMED was developed in response to market and consumer demands for a unique and advanced means to achieve good dermal health for all skin types through non-thermal skin rejuvenation with minimal to no downtime. The three-step restorative, replenishing and rejuvenating treatment uses all-natural, sea-salt-based exfoliation for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, acne and acne scarring and sun damage.

“We are thrilled to partner with Merz Aesthetics to deliver a world-class solution for one of the most in-demand aesthetic procedures today,” said Allan Danto, President and CEO of SaltMED. “Consumers and practitioners alike are seeking a medical, non-invasive solution to help with fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and acne. As the consumer population diversifies, The SaltFacial appeals to the growing skin care needs of these consumers with results that speak for themselves.”

“Patients who try The SaltFacial are routinely coming back for it,” said Dr. Alan Durkin​, double board-certified plastic surgeon at Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery in Florida​. “This is the greatest determinant of a successful device.”

To help U.S. providers better understand how to integrate this into their practice and capitalize upon the investment, Merz Aesthetics and SaltMED are jointly exhibiting at key industry trade shows and society meetings. Merz Aesthetics also will host quarterly educational webinars for healthcare providers wanting to learn more about The SaltFacial. To sign up for the 6:00-7:00 PM EST, December 12, 2022 webinar with Dr. Daniel Campos, please visit,
