Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Wrinkle Severity and incidence of device-related serious adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 4 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    • Effectiveness endpoint: Wrinkle severity in the target area in animation at 30 days post-treatment as rated by the investigator using the 5-point grading scale.
    • Safety endpoint: Incidence of device-related serious adverse events (DSAE).

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Wrinkle Severity [ Time Frame: Up to 4 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    • Investigators' rating of wrinkle severity in the target area in animation immediately post-treatment, at 1 and 7 days post-treatment and at 30-day intervals for 120 days after treatment

  • Independent Assessment [ Time Frame: Up to 4 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    • Independent reviewers' ratings of forehead wrinkle severity at rest and in animation at 30-days post-treatment

  • Global assessment [ Time Frame: Up to 4 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    • Subjects' global assessment of change in appearance of target area immediately post-treatment, at 1 and 7 days post-treatment and at 30-day intervals for 120 days after treatment
