It’s official: The Ulthera System Inc. is coming to Brazil.

The first application for Ultherapy® – the procedure enabled by the System – is a non-invasive brow lift. The System is cleared to treat the face to encourage the natural formation of collagen and elastin in the skin.

Brazil is the No.2 spot on the globe for surgical and non-surgical procedures performed country-wide, according to statistics compiled by International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

“Bringing the Ulthera System into this already booming cosmetic market will greatly extend the global reach and popularity of non-invasive Ultherapy procedures,” says Matthew Likens, president and CEO of Ulthera, Inc., in a press release. “We anticipate – and have already experienced – high patient and physician demand for this efficacious treatment in Brazil, just as we have had in North America, Asia and Europe in our three years of commercialization to date.”

MedSystems will be the exclusive distributor of the Ulthera System in Brazil.

The Ulthera System is cleared by the U.S. FDA for use in a non-invasive treatment of the face to lift the eyebrow.
