Over time, collagen fibres begin to lose elasticity, which in turn causes the skin to lose its firmness and start to sag. The SF HIFU Med is unmatched by other non-invasive cosmetic devices, with its ability to treat the tissues usually addressed during surgical facelifts. Using ultra-sound waves, the superficial muscular aponeurotic system is targeted. The tissues are heated to a range between 60-70˚C, thus the natural wound healing process is stimulated to create new collagen and elastin.
The system is a non-invasive ultrasound focusing technique. The ultrasonic energy is delivered deep within the skin and causes a thermal reaction, high heat will directly focus on the fascia and muscle layers. The technology specifically targets the SMAS, and thus, collagen production is stimulated and the process of tissue regeneration begins. This causes tightening and lifting of the skin and tissues, resulting in a lifted appearance and a tightened feeling in the Face & Body areas.
