Our painless 4th Gen works faster and more holistically compared to some conventional face lifting options. This new leap in technology makes HiFU no longer what it used to be. HIFU accurately targets the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System(SMAS), deeper and superficial layers of the skin. This safe treatment protects the superficial skin layer (epidermis) while allowing deep and uniform penetration of heat into the skin at various depths of 4.5mm, 3.0mm, and 2.0mm to stimulate collagen tightening, thickening & remodelling, and collagen formation. This progressively leads to a firm scaffolding matrix in the SMAS resulting in facial tightening, lifting and firming. This device also melts unwanted fat and is suitable for reducing the double chin and lower face fats.
The unfortunate truth is that as we age, both the muscles and fat pad deposits of our faces start to gradually descend. This increase in loose tissue, particularly in the jowl area, can have a very ageing effect. Additionally, it has the effect of making us look more stern, sadder, or more tired than we actually are, which could have an impact on our work or social lives.
While many may be well aware of facial aging, few are unaware that with age, the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) plays a significant role in the aging process.
The SMAS, or Subcutaneous Musculo-Aponeurotic System, is the supporting framework of connective tissue found just under the skin that helps hold support and facial structures.
The SMAS plays a significant role in the aging process. With age, the SMAS weakens in it support as its ability to hold up the muscles, fat and skin of the face diminishes over time. Combined with the toll of gravity and environmental factors, the face, eyelids, jowls and neck sag and lose their youthful vigor. Knowing how the SMAS relates to facial aging can help you understand why HIFU Face Lift will be the treatment of choice for sagging skin and sagging jowls as it directly targets the SMAS layer.
The next time you notice your wrinkles, sagging jowls, or sagging cheeks, you’ll know that your SMAS is losing its hold.
