The top two skin concerns that women have when it comes to aging are sagginess and wrinkles. The main reason behind these two issues is the skin loosing collagen & elastin over the years, resulting in the lack of skin elasticity and firmness.
On top of that, sagging facial muscles due to aging, gravity, moving the face too much... also contribute to making the face look old, droopy and chubby.
With our HIFU LIFTERA treatment, the doctor uses high-intensity focused ultrasound technology to deliver heat impact to the deep layers of the skin; therefore, effectively lifting and tighten the skin as well as reduce the apperance of fine lines and wrinkles.
HIFU LIFTERA uses focused ultrasound energy to target the deep layer of the skin called SMAS (3 - 4.5 mm below the skin surface, where the facial muscles are connected to the upper layer of the skin). SMAS is where the natural collagen & elastin production of the body takes place the most actively. It is also the layer that plastic surgeons manually pulls backs during a face lift.
The ultrasound energy causes the tissue at the SMAS layer to heat up rapidly. Once the cells in the targeted area reach a certain temperature, they experience cellular damage. The damage then stimulates the cells to produce even more collagen and elastin. Since the treatment targets deeper layers, the surface of the skin is not damaged at all.
The new collagen and elastin help improve the texture of the skin, making the skin firmer, tighter and stronger as well as giving the face a natural lifting effect. The appearance of wrinkles and jowls also reduces dramatically. When the skin is no longer loose and sagging, you can definitely feel your face become slimmer and younger.
At ROHTO AOHAL CLINIC, HIFU LIFTERA can be used to treat these areas: the whole face, the neck, half of the face or small areas such as nasolabial folds, fat under the eyes, forehead lines…Our doctor recommends doing the treatment 2 times to achieve the best result. After the treatment, customers can see about 20% of the result. After about 1 - 2 month, the final result can be seen. The result can last from 1 to 2 years, depending on each customer's skin structure and lifestyle.
HIFU LIFTERA machine of ROHTO AOHAL CLINIC has 2 different applicators, one is called Pen applicator and one is called Line applicator. During the treatment, Pen applicator is used to treat narrow and curved areas of the face while Line applicator is used for big areas.
On top of that, the heat energy radiated from the applicators are the same but the frequency is different; therefore, Pen applicator can be used for customers with thin and sensitive skin while Line applicator is used on thicker and stronger skin.
HIFU LIFTERA is proven to be safe by the FDA (Food and Drud Administration of America). The treatment is highly effective thanks to the exclusive accurate and stable heat delivery system called the Thermal Diffusion Treatment (TDTTM). Because of this unique TDTTM design, HIFU LIFTERA treatment is significantly less painful and uncomfortable than traditional HIFU treatments. Customers can go through the treatment with ease and still get amazing result.
