Solta Medical's 'No More Hair. More You.' campaign embraces freedom, self-expression, and casting off labels. The campaign, which also features members of the LGBTQ community, encourages individuality with a play on unwanted nicknames throughout its advertisements. Recently, the brand also held a sweepstakes that offered community members the chance to win a laser hair removal, skin renewal treatment.
"Our support of the LGBTQ community is steadfast and unwavering as we each strive to help foster dignity and respect," said Vladimir Paul-Blanc, General Manager, Solta Medical. "We're honored to be a part of The Zebra Coalition's mission to provide stability for and uplift our LGBTQ youth as well as to feature community members in our 'No More Hair. More You' campaign."
With an average of 40 percent of homeless youth in U.S. homeless programs identifying as LGBTQ, medical coverage is crucial. The Zebra Coalition is a network of Central Florida social service providers, government agencies and educational institutions that provide a full continuum of services for at-risk LGBTQ youth. Together, the Coalition creates an ecosystem required to effectively address this critical issue. In addition to Solta Medical's financial contributions to The Zebra Coalition, it was also the exclusive medical aesthetic sponsor of the One Magical Weekend LGBTQ event held at Walt Disney World Resorts in June 2016.
