Arizona Patent of the Month – March 2023

Guided Therapy Systems LLC, a biomedical engineering company, has developed a non-invasive way to address cosmetic issues around the eyes and forehead using high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). The traditional procedures for treating wrinkles, puffy eyes, and droopy eyelids involve invasive surgeries that require hospital stays. However, Guided Therapy Systems’ recently patented HIFU technology can achieve the same results without any incisions, cuts or needles. The HIFU waves penetrate the skin’s surface to target and heat the underlying tissue causing the body’s natural healing process to kick in, tightening the skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and puffy eyes.

The procedure, known as Ultra Therapy, is FDA-approved and involves no downtime. Patients can expect to see results immediately after treatment, with maximum benefits appearing within three to six months as collagen production is stimulated. Ultra Therapy is safe, effective and less invasive than traditional procedures, making it a more attractive option for those looking to achieve a youthful look without the risks associated with surgical procedures.

The benefits of Ultra Therapy extend beyond the cosmetic as well. The HIFU waves used in the procedure can also be used to treat medical conditions such as prostate cancer and uterine fibroids, making it a versatile tool in the medical field. Guided Therapy Systems is leading the way in non-invasive cosmetic and medical procedures, and their HIFU technology is revolutionizing the way we approach treatment.
