Brazil withdraws "ultrasound beauty products", acts on licensing breaches:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Brazil's Anvisa healthcare surveillance agency has acted on the illegal commercialisation of a range of beauty products that use ultrasound, banning their import, distribution, sale and use. The devices specifically mentioned in a June 19 alert were being sold under the brand Ultrashape, Bellacontour and Ultracontour; details of the manufacturer or distributor were not disclosed. No ultrasound device is licensed in Brazil for non-medical use, said the agency. Separately, it has announced the market withdrawal of "all products subject to healthcare regulation" produced by the firms Eletro Light Comercio de Materiais Eletricos (based in Manaus, Amazonas) and Brotinho Ervas (Ipatinga, Mato Grosso), due to breaches in licensing regulations.
