aesthetic and medical applications using its therapeutic ultrasound

platform technology -- today announced that it is now registered in

Mexico to market and distribute its patented medical device, the

Ulthera System.

In Mexico, the System -- which combines time-honored ultrasound

imaging with focused ultrasound therapy in a treatment known as

Ultherapy -- is "prescribed to produce stimulation in tissues to raise

the temperature in a localized manner for aesthetic, non-invasive

use."(1) The procedure encourages the natural formation of collagen

and elastin in the skin, giving it the ability to lift tissue. In

Mexico, the technology will be used specifically to lift tissue on the

face, neck, decollete, knees and arms.

countries -- is a testament to the value that markets around the world

place in our platform technology and its use for multiple non-invasive

applications," said Matthew Likens, president and CEO of Ulthera. "We

anticipate a high adoption rate of the System by Mexican medical

professionals due to the growing demand for safe and effective

non-surgical solutions to treat the aging skin."

have been very eager to receive country clearance to sell it," said

Antonio Rodriguez, sales director for Arfamex. "We are honored to

distribute the System and to partner with such an innovative and

steadfast company pioneering ultrasound for non-invasive cosmetic


"Arfamex was the clear choice as a Mexican partner to maintain the

U.S. and other countries," said Likens. "Having an established and

respected Mexican partner on board will help Ulthera rapidly broaden

the reach of our technology."

The Ulthera System is cleared by the U.S. FDA for use in a
