The treatment works by delivering concentrated ultrasound energy to the deep foundation layers of the skin especially the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) without disrupting or damaging the surface of the skin. It focuses and meets at a specific point at a specific depth under the skin. At this meeting point and depth, the temperature is heated to ~65°C, creating both spaced ‘wounds’ and cellular friction – which in turn promotes healing, immediately contracts collagen and stimulates a rapid production. There will be collagen remodeling and collagen production. Over the next 90-180 days, the wound-healing response stimulates long-term tissue and leads to further lifting.
- Firmer skin and lessened laxity
- Smoothened skin texture
- Non-surgical, no downtime
The procedure typically requires about a half hour.
First, our therapist will help you remove any residual makeup and cleanse your face properly to ensure no other agents are on your skin before the treatment.
Next, our doctor will do some grid marking on your face with a white face chalk, for clear indication of the handpiece movement.
Ultrasound gel will then be applied to your skin. Different handpieces will then be used to deliver ultrasound energy beneath the skin at different levels. Some patients may feel the energy at this point. Do not worry, our doctor will work with you to make the experience as comfortable as possible.
There may be slight redness for up to a few hours following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
