Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Effectiveness and Safety Success [ Time Frame: Up to 4 months ]
    • Effectiveness success: an improvement in line severity in the target area in animation at 30 days post-treatment as rated by the investigator using the 5-point wrinkle scale
    • Safety success: the absence of a device-related serious adverse event (DSAE)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Participants With One Point Improvement in Line Severity [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to 4 months ]
    • Investigators' rating of line severity improvement in the target area in animation at 7 days post-treatment, and at 30-day intervals for 120 days after treatment from baseline

  • Participants With an Improvement in Global Appearance [ Time Frame: Up to 4 months ]
    • Subjects' global assessment of change in appearance of target area at 7 days post-treatment, and at 30-day intervals for 120 days after treatment to baseline
