By utilizing the power of a triple layer lifting we target the areas treated with three different depths in a single treatment.
The HIFU is ultrasound focused below the skin’s surface causing cellular friction within molecules and precise target-point heating. The friction between the molecules produces heat and thermal injury at the focal point of the HIFU delivery. Heat is created within the skin tissue, and is maximized at the target point. The tissue at these target points is heated to approximately 65°C, which create spaced ‘wounds’ or cones of heat through cellular friction. The result of this process promotes healing, immediate contraction and collagen stimulation through fibroblast activity within these treatment zones.
The SMAS layer is the layer in which the muscles of the face and the soft tissue attach. It is a layer of tissue that attaches and surrounds the deeper tissues and structures of the face and neck, including the entire cheek area. It also attached to the platysma. During cosmetic surgery a portion of this SMAS is removed and then re-attached to give a longer lasting result than a traditional skin tightening face lift.
The SMAS is composed of collagen and elastin fibres similar to those of the dermal tissue but is more durable and has a less delayed reaction after lifting and tightening procedures.
As a person ages, the quantity of collagen in SMAS decreases, and this leads to the facial skin losing its suppleness and developing wrinkles. In order to tighten the skin, SMAS must contract.
The HIFU technology precisely heats up the SMAS, causing trauma to the tissue leading to improved elasticity and firmness in the skin over a period of time through the body’s natural repairing process. The friction between these molecules produces heat and thermal injury at a focal point within the skin tissue, generated at the target points leaving the skin’s surface unaffected.
The HIFU is delivered to this layer (SMAS) to cause trauma to the layer encouraging the repair and growth of new cells within this area. The SMAS is the section of the skin treated with HIFU to give a long-lasting tightening and lifting effect.
The result of this delivery process causes immediate trauma to the treatment zone which then promotes healing, immediate contraction and collagen stimulation through fibroblast activity resulting in a lifted, firmer and toned appearance of the skin.
Using three depths this focused application ensures the system can penetrate to specific depths unlike other skin tightening technologies.
