HIFU Skin Lift
HIFU is – High Intensity Focused Ultrasound-penetrates below the skins surface to cause cellular friction and precise target-point heating. Heat is created within the skin tissue and is only generated at the target point leaving the skins surface unaffected. Tissue at these target points is heated to approximately 65 degrees which creates space ‘wounds’. This process promotes healing, immediate contraction and collagen stimulation through fibroblast activity.
- Deep Hydration
Over 90-180 days, the wound-healing response stimulates long-term tissue and leads to further lifting and tightening. Giving better definition to the face and improving sagging skin.
3d-skin med uses 3 cartridge depths (1.5mm, 3mm and 4.5mm) this focused application ensures the system can penetrate to specific depths unlike other skin tightening technologies.
THE SMAS layer is the layer which the muscle of the face and the soft tissue attach. During cosmetic surgery a portion of this SMAS is removed and then reattached to give a longer lasting result than a traditional skin tightening face lift.
The SMAS is the section of the skin treated with HIFU to give a longer lasting tightening effect as a result of treatment.
