What is Aging?
As one grows older, the number of somatic cells lose their ability to divide and the number of cells is reduced. By decreasing the number of cells of epidermis & dermis in the skin, the skin loses elasticity, wrinkles are generated.
● Aging caused by environmental factors
● Continuous exposure to a stimulus such as UV light, cold, cooling/heating &, etc.
● Drinking, Smoking, StressAging is caused by harmful environmental factors outside the human body.
● Due to the increase of the age of the aging
● Decline of metabolism in the body
● Mainly genetic factors (Hormonal, congenital skin thickness, etc.)
※ PhotoagingRepresentative UV rays A(UV-A) and B(UV-B) coming through the atmosphere penetrate to the skin. UV-B energy is concentrated in the epidermis represents the effect of burning the skin. As a result of UV-A coming through to the dermis, generating lots of active oxygen and destroying the collagen, elastin & hyaluronic acid causes skin aging. In other words, UV-A is an actual main cause of skin aging
※ other factorsAs UV rays are the representative external factor of skin aging, many other things like as infrared light, smoking, drug consumption, menopause &, etc. are associated.
The principle of HIFU is ultrasonic focusing on a single point with high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), to produce high energy, penetrating cortices direct to 3.0~4.5mm. deep to shallow muscle fascia tissue of SMAS(Musculo-Aponeurotic system), in vitro make muscle aponeurotic system (SMAS) in vivo thermal coagulation, cause tension and lift, resulting in fascia suspension lift. And then from deep to shallow accurately improve the subcutaneous structure of skin support, so that collagen protein contraction and stimulate collagen proliferation and reorganization, to build a new collagen fiber network, restore elasticity from the bottom of the skin, effectively achieve tighten the outline and smooth wrinkles. Pulling effect as surgical skin lift, note maintenance, maintain time about 2-3 years.
The fundamental principle is analogous to using a magnifying glass to focus sunlight, generating burning heat. Focused ultrasound uses an acoustic lens to concentrate multiple intersecting beams of ultrasound precisely on a target in the body. Each individual beam passes through tissue with no effect. But at the focal point where the beams converge, the energy can have useful thermal or mechanical effects.
