The introduction of the U-Wand represents entry into an entirely new market opportunity for the Company in the real of consumer products with an initial focus on cosmetics. Bruce Haglund, Chairman and CEO of Dermisonics commented, "We believe the application of our ultrasound technology to cosmetics represents a significant new opportunity for the Company. Our purpose is to develop innovative methods for the application of cosmetics and to foster their acceptance and use by consumers.
