Equipment cosmetology in aesthetic medicine – HIFU and laser therapy. Aesthetic medicine introduces new and safe procedures to beauty salons that allow you to stay young for longer and get rid of skin changes and discoloration. One of the methods eagerly chosen by clients of beauty salons is HIFU, i.e. face and neck lifting SMAS, i.e. the myofascial layer. It is a three-level effect of ultrasonic waves up to a depth of 4.5 mm. This is the only hardware procedure that has no analogues in the world, it affects not only the epidermis and subcutaneous fat, but also the muscle complex.
Aesthetic medicine and HIFU
Ultrasonic waves penetrate to the desired depth and exert an intense effect on certain points, reducing the collagen and elastin fibers of the myofascial layer.This creates a kind of supporting mesh that provides deep tissue tension. Clinical trials have confirmed the high efficiency and safety of the non-surgical HIFU facelift. Ultrasonic face and neck lifting with this technique perfectly corrects all age-related changes:
- Face contouring, correcting the face oval, restoring skin tone
- Eliminates the second chin
- Provides a lifting of the cheeks and mouth corners,
- Dropping of the upper and / or lower eyelids
- Dropping eyebrows
- It smoothes nasolabial folds
- Makes the skin of the face and neck firm and elastic.
- Wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, deepening of the nasolabial folds.
The lifting effect increases for 3-4 months and lasts about 2 years, then the procedure can be repeated. To achieve the most pronounced and lasting result, HIFU therapy may be performed every 6-12 months. To use this aesthetic medicine procedure, you should visit a cosmetologist who can perform an initial ultrasound examination. This allows you to assess the structural features of the tissues in a particular patient, measure the thickness of subcutaneous fat at each point, select the individual course of the procedure, parameters, the need to use one or another manipulator in different zones.
Contraindications to the HIFU procedure
At the same time, HIFU lifting has a minimum of contraindications: pregnancy and lactation, the presence of a pacemaker or implants in the area of action, inflammation and skin damage in the area of treatment, epilepsy, systemic diseases of connective tissue, oncology.
Requirements and course of the HIFU aesthetic medicine procedure
The HIFU ultrasonic face lift does not require special preparation, but cosmetics containing glycolic and salicylic acids or isotretinoin should be discontinued a few days before the procedure. After cleansing the skin, the cosmetologist imposes a special marking (according to which the procedure will be performed), as well as a gel for better movement of the manipulator and optimal conductivity of ultrasonic waves. The procedure has a patented imaging system through which the specialist sees the muscle layer on the monitor and controls the optimal exposure depth. The patient feels warmth and slight tingling during the procedure.
Does the procedure replace plastic surgery?
Today, HIFU aesthetic medicine therapy is the most effective non-surgical method of skin tightening, the only non-surgical technique that works on the SMAS layer. Using this technique, the cosmetologist strengthens and tones the tissues at the level of the myofascial layer, which allows you to prevent aging, delay or avoid surgery, or prolong and consolidate the effect after plastic surgery. Much depends on how early the patient undergoes the procedure, as well as the type of aging. An experienced cosmetologist at the stage of consultation with the patient always tells what results can be achieved by non-surgical methods.
Non-ablative laser facial skin rejuvenation is one of the most effective non-invasive technologies that can quickly and permanently improve the condition of the skin. With age, the skin of the face begins to lose its elasticity and freshness. The main reason for this is the reduction of collagen protein production in cells. The laser acts on the affected areas of the skin in a targeted manner, thanks to which cellular metabolism in the tissues is strengthened and new collagen begins to form.
Performing an aesthetic medicine treatment with the use of a neodymium laser rejuvenates the skin, makes it more elastic, improves the complexion and changes its appearance without damaging the epidermis. In addition to deeply rejuvenating the skin, aesthetic medicine allows laser treatments such as hair removal, pigmentation removal, vascular network, acne treatment. The neodymium laser increases cellular immunity and fibroblast activity, and the skin is rejuvenated thanks to its own internal resources.
Laser facial skin rejuvenation restores its youth and eliminates problems such as:
- Facial wrinkles
- Age spots of various etiologies
- Rosacea and dilated capillaries
- Uneven face color
- Enlarged pores.
Currently used lasers to rejuvenate the skin of the face, neck, shoulders and body are comfortable and provide a painless course of the treatment. They do not affect the integrity of the skin, do not require skin cooling and anesthesia before the procedure.
