Micro-Focused Ultrasound with Visualization Toronto

The Beautifying Power of Ultrasound

After the age of twenty, our skin loses about 1% of its collagen per year, resulting in wrinkles and sagging. Micro-Focused Ultrasound with Visualization is a focused ultrasound treatment which stimulates the production of new collagen deep within the skin. Studies show that Micro-Focused Ultrasound with Visualization can stimulate an increase in collagen of up to 20%. Results are longlasting. It is the only non-invasive procedure that is Health Canada approved for lifting of the brow, submental area and neck as well as for the reduction of wrinkles of the chest. Micro-Focused Ultrasound with Visualization may be combined with laser treatments and collagen-stimulating fillers such as calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) dermal filler and Poly-L-Lactic Acid for additional benefits.

How Does Micro-Focused Ultrasound with Visualization Work?

Micro-Focused Ultrasound with Visualization stimulates collagen production by delivering microfocused ultrasound energy deep into the skin. Ultrasound consists of high frequency sounds waves. Ultrasound energy has been used safely in medical imaging and medical treatments for over fifty years. Micro-Focused Ultrasound with Visualization allows direct visualization of the layers of the skin with high resolution ultrasound. The superficial collagen (in the dermis) and the deeper collagen (the SMAS) of the face are treated. The ultrasound energy gently heats the skin in the targeted layer, and your body reacts by creating collagen.

Micro-Focused Ultrasound with Visualization has been established as safe and effective in clinical studies and in over half a million treatments worldwide.

Some patients see an effect immediately following their treatment due to contraction of the collagen in response to Micro-Focused Ultrasound with Visualization. Additional results appear over 2−6 months as new collagen works to lift, tighten and smooth the skin. Micro-Focused Ultrasound with Visualization is a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery — and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the results of cosmetic surgery.
