High intensity focused ultrasounds (HIFU) provided by Uthera are able to concentrate at different depths –according to the operator’s choice- leaving the most superficial layers of the skin untouched. The muscular tissue that gets hit by the HIFU contracts and the multi-pointed damage that it creates will boost the collagen production. The contraction of muscle tissues underneath the skin on the face (which is called SMAS – superficial musculoaponeurotic system) causes the tissue to lift up creating a lifting effect. The FDA approved this procedure as non-surgical lifting for the neck, the chin, and the eyebrows.
