Microfocused Ultrasound

What is Microfocused Ultrasound?

Microfocused ultrasound with visualization device is a non-invasive, non-surgical lifting procedure with no downtime designed to restore sagging, lax skin on the face and neck to a firm, youthful state.

How does it work?

The microfocused ultrasound device uses sound waves targeted beneath the skin—deep skin layer and foundation layer—to gently heat, tighten and lift the skin, creating a younger, firmer look. And because the device uses ultrasound, the surface skin is left undisturbed. In addition to the initial lifting, the device also prompts the body to generate new collagen, restoring skin over time to an even more youthful appearance and texture.

What are the benefits of Microfocused Ultrasound?

  • Non-invasive
  • Requires no downtime
  • Quick treatment (Generally requires only one treatment of 30 to 60 minutes)
  • No sudden dramatic changes to how you look (Results appear gradually, typically taking two to three months)
