Today, we are also reporting another important key performance indicator of $2.6 million in pulse sales, a testimony for the continued increase in the Sofwave™ device utilization by the physicians and strong patient demand for the treatments we offer. In the third quarter, we faced inventory shortages due to global supply chain challenges. However, we were able to address these challenges, increase our inventory levels, and we are prepared for accelerated growth in 2022.”

In November 2021, we also announced that we received another major FDA approval for additional indications for lifting the eyebrow, sub-mental (beneath the chin), and facial neck areas. In August of 2021, we announced that we received approval from the Korean Ministry of Foods and Drugs safety to market our device in a market considered one of the fastest-growing markets in our industry. These approvals create major opportunities for growth over the next years.
