HIFU technology: before/after best results review

Rejuvenation treatments have always been in high demand for aesthetic business owners with excellent profit potential. Although, with high demands comes higher competition, and practitioners are always looking to offer clients more effective and innovative technologies for anti-ageing, non-invasive treatments.
Affirmative, Radiofrequency skin tightening and microcurrent therapy have long been classics, while SMAS HIFU lifting remains a premium service. This technology has become an alternative to surgical rejuvenation because it triggers robust renewal processes without traumatizing or compromising skin integrity.
Therefore, today we've prepared a complete overview of HIFU technology: how this technique works, its benefits, and the scope of action. We'll also demonstrate actual results and tell you how SMAS works on different body areas. So, let's start!

HIFU: What is it?

First of all, HIFU is an acronym for High Intensive Focused Ultrasound. It is a unique, innovative technology of exposure to the deep layers of soft tissue, the so-called SMAS. It's a two-layer structure under the skin, consisting of a surface layer of collagen, elastin and facial muscles. Together, they make up the framework that supports the skin.

That is why you often see the name "SMAS lifting" or "HIFU SMAS lifting" – it's the technique of influence and the purpose of the effect combined to give the title to this beauty innovation. Ultrasound anti-age therapy has achieved what was previously achieved only with the help of plastic surgery.

How HIFU technology works

A HIFU facial uses ultrasound to create heat deep in the skin. This heat damages targeted skin cells and develop coagulation points in the tissue causing the body to try to repair them. To do this, the body produces collagen to aid in cell regrowth. Collagen is a substance in the skin that gives it structure and elasticity.

Collagen remodelling leads to a reduction in SMAS volume. Therefore, the initial result is noticeable immediately after the end of the treatment. As a result, we can see an improved face line, chin or other targeted areas. Thermocoagulation shots are created at a depth of 1 mm, 1.5 to 16 mm. You can work with the collagen of the dermis, tighten SMAS and destroy fat. Therefore, you can also perform HIFU for the thighs, abdomen, and buttocks.

The long-lasting effect of the treatment is the stimulation of the formation of regulatory proteins, which leads to neocologenesis. In addition, tissue temperature resulting from HIFU exposure is optimal for synthesising new molecules - precursors of skin structural proteins. That leads to a long-lasting result of HIFU on the face and body for up to 2-5 years.

HIFU lifting: what are the advantages for beauty professionals?

Top reasons to enhance your business with HIFU technology:

⭐️ Efficiency. No other aesthetic treatment approach rivals HIFU in efficacy. Such powerful renewal processes occur due to the direct effect on SMAS. Other methods act either on the skin surface or the muscular frame, which is undeniably effective but not as effective.

⭐️ High demand. Exceptional anti-ageing solutions are in demand. Unfortunately, not everyone will undergo surgery to slow down age-related changes. Furthermore, any surgical procedure also has its list of contraindications. Therefore, by having a HIFU SMAS lifting machine in your salon, you will always have a significant amount of clients.
⭐️ Atraumatic and painless. One crucial advantage because after the session, the client does not need to come out of anaesthesia and undergo long rehabilitation. The session lasts about an hour (depending on the treatment area), and the client can keep up with the usual daily routine. The maximum expectation of the visitor is moderate redness.

⭐️ Fast ROI. It is not the last thing that a beauty professional is guided by when choosing equipment. Two factors are important here: the treatment cost and the number of required sessions. Although you need only one treatment for a powerful rejuvenation, its price starts from £450 per session. Due to this, a device like the Zemits Ultranex Pro can pay for itself after 10-15 clients. Of course, it depends on the location of your business and the potential clients for this procedure.

Who should buy a HIFU machine?

❤️ A beauty professional who wants to stand out among the competitors and attract new clients.

❤️ A beauty business owner who wants to strengthen the business and considers future development with innovative technologies.

❤️ An aesthetician who has built a clientele for anti-age treatments and has alternative approaches, but less effective.

❤️ A beauty investor interested in premium quality services to increase profits.
