Public Citizen calls on the Food and Drug Administration to target Profit Solutions MD in addition to Advanced Aesthetic Concepts (AAC) for apparent illegal promotion of the unapproved LipoTron device because AAC and Profit Solutions MD are the same company. We recently recommended that the FDA immediately seize all LipoTron devices in the U.S. and order the manufacturer and its distributors to cease and desist all activities related to its distribution, sale, and promotion.

August 3, 2012 letter from an attorney representing Advanced Aesthetic Concepts (AAC) — the distributor of the LipoTron device — demanding that Public Citizen cease and desist all communications about AAC’s activities involving the marketing and promotion of the LipoTron device and threatening to file a lawsuit against Public Citizen unless it complied with this demand.
