Using precisely focused high intensity ultrasound technology to target the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) layer of the skin. The SMAS is a layer of tissue deep within the skin and subcutaneous tissue. It is one of the most important support structures for the face. As we age, this layer loses elasticity, resulting in skin sagging. Surgical face-lifts involve the manipulation of this anatomic structure, tightening it, trimming the fat around it to produce the desired “lifting” in the appearance of the face. HIFU skin tightening will target the same areas with ultrasound energy with the goal of causing tightening of the SMAS layer and destroying surrounding fat cells. The results of this treatment are instant and progress over a 6 month period.
HIFU body sculpting is a non-invasive treatment for removing stubborn body fat, skin toning and tightening. This is not a weight loss treatment and is suitable for patients with a BMI less than 30.
