Details

Tittle:
Very compact focussed ultrasound devices for skin rejuvenation
Summary:
An East of England company is about to launch a new wireless device for skin rejuvenation, primarily for the European markets. A desktop version is already selling in the UK. The key market is smoothing eye bags and wrinkles in beauty salons and by wealthy consumers. Partners are needed amongst beauty device or cosmetics manufacturers but also sales consultants. Type of cooperation: licensing, manufacturing or services agreement.
Description:
An East of England company is highly specialised in ultrasound technologies for human applications. For many years, they have supplied transducers and controllers to non-European manufacturers of beauty devices.
The focussed ultrasound has different effects when different cartridges are being used for different layers of skin. It helps break down fat and stimulates new collagen growth. These in turn are useful when smoothing out eye bags and wrinkles. Eye bags is probably the most popular for these devices, usually to be found in beauty clinics.
The Cambridge company has recently proven a desktop version (see the Picture) for professional use and is taking first orders in the UK. In addition to facelifts, it is being used for fat burning around the body.
Furthermore, the company has now protected design rights on an even more compact and wireless design (see the Picture). It will be ready for manufacturing in summer 2017. This is meant primarily for eye bags and cheeks. The number of pulses has been brought down to protect from accidental misuse.
In comparison to similar offerings, the new designs are motor-free and smaller (and incidentally cheaper). The company has existing links in the supply and manufacturing, but will consider transferring the rights and the know-how to European manufacturers. Therefore, the company seeks European partners to fill various roles. The cooperation types may include licensing, manufacturing agreement, and services agreement. Under a licensing deal, the whole rights on either product can be transferred. A manufacturing agreement would condition that the manufacturer is already in this business and would bring additional routes to market in Europe. A services agreement would focus solely on building additional channels to market.
Advantages and Innovations:
The very compact design opens a new market segment, wealthy consumers. Also, the desktop version is smaller (and cheaper to make) than similar products. At the same time, the high tech components and the convenient user interface have been preserved.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
- Type of partner sought: industry.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: manufacturers of beauty and aesthetic devices and equipment, cosmetics manufacturers, or sales consultants.
- Task to be performed by the partner sought: partners are sought for both manufacturing and market penetration at the same time. Some manufacturers may already have the desired sales channels and it will be up for discussion what parts or input will be needed from the UK company. Manufacturers of cosmetics may be interested in taking on this new product that will complement crèmes against eye bags for example. The cooperation type may be but is not limited to, a license agreement or manufacturing agreement. Some sales consultants may be needed under services agreement to place the product through their existing channels. For the professional desktop version, purely commercial agreements will be considered as well.
