[Source: Phoenix Business Journal] – A Mesa medical device maker has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to begin marketing its ultrasound technology to perform eyebrow lifts without surgery. Next, it hopes the same technology will be OK’d for other applications ranging from the treatment of liver cancer to acne.

Using “intense therapeutic ultrasound,” dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons will be able to see deep tissue while delivering focused energy into the skin without affecting the surrounding tissue, said Michael Slayton, inventor of the technology and chairman and CEO of Guided Therapy Systems LLC.
