The treatment in question is the latest in technology, and is based on the action of focused ultrasound (U/S) penetration at a depth of up to 4.5mm into the skin, that is, at the same depth that an invasive facelift reaches.
It is a completely blood-free method, as it does not require any incisions to be made, and therefore does not leave any scars or marks. It does not interfere with the internal organs, does not cause any injuries, and is painless and safe.
With the help of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) and the heat that they generate, not just at the surface, but deep inside the skin, the therapy succeeds in strengthening existing collagen in the skin. At the same time, it activates fibroblasts, which produce new collagen in a safe way, by stimulating the natural process of collagenogenesis inside the skin.
The action of the ultrasound waves specifically targets the deepest layers of the connective tissue and muscle layers of the epidermis, known as the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System). That is, the layer that the plastic surgeon intervenes with, during a surgical facelift, to tighten and correct loose skin. In the same way, this treatment focuses precisely on problem areas and on multiple levels, achieving a natural and gradual tightening and lifting result in the areas where it is applied.
Non-surgical facelifts using HIFU do not cause photosensitivity and can be done any time during the year. Their action is not affected by exposure to sunlight, as they target deeper layers of the skin, rather than the surface. Moreover, anaesthesia is not necessary, and neither is recovery time, and the treatment allows for immediate return to your normal activities.
The treatment is aimed at people over 30 years of age, as this is the time when the first signs of relaxation and aging appear, and under 65 years of age, as the skin should still maintain some elasticity. It can be applied to any area of the face and body, wherever there are signs of relaxation, wrinkles and fine lines. More specifically, around the jawline, cheekbones, double chin, neck and décolleté. It can be combined with injectable mesotherapy or Dermapen mesotherapy, Botox and injectable hyaluronic acid implants.
Adverse reactions: Immediately after the treatment, you may experience mild redness or swelling, which will gradually recede over the next few hours.
