What is HIFU?

High Intensity ultrasound uses ultrasound waves to generate temperatures of 65 degrees centigrade plus at well defined depts in the skin. Once the cells in the targeted area reach a certain temperature they experience cellular damage causing dermal remodelling, resulting in lifting and tightening.

The high frequency ultrasound beams are focused on a specific tissue site below the skins surface, as a result there is no damage to the upper layers of the skin, this is considered a non invasive procedure.

The 4.5 mm cartridge targets the smas layer, leading to immediate contraction without damage to the skin surface or surrounding tissue.
