Micro and macro-focused ultrasound are excellent alternatives. The ultraformer produces coagulation points in the skin, reaching even its deepest layers. Thus, it stimulates the production of collagen, which gives more firmness to the skin and treats expression lines.

The main differential of the micro-focused ultrasound is its reach capacity since it is the only non-invasive technology capable of reaching up to 13mm in the dermis - acting directly on the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System). When it comes to rejuvenation, this is an indispensable feature!

All the structures that are part of the framework, such as fat, muscle, and bone tissue, suffer from the effects of aging. For this reason, when it comes to rejuvenation, it is essential to be able to reach deeper layers of the dermis. And the micro-focused ultrasound can successfully achieve this goal in a non-invasive way.

How does microfocused ultrasound work?
The microfocused ultrasound equipment works by releasing high-intensity ultrasonic waves capable of acting directly on the SMAS, a predominantly collagen layer located at different depths under the skin. This way, the treatment is able to stimulate the regeneration process by increasing the production of collagen in the focus area.


The micro-focused ultrasound waves induce molecular vibrations that generate small micrometric lesions in the focal points, without reaching adjacent areas. This initiates an inflammatory cascade as a form of repair and, as a consequence, new collagen fibers are formed in the treated area. The increase in collagen results in firmer skin with fewer wrinkles as occurs in the surgical facelift.

What is the use of micro-focused ultrasound? 

The micro-focused ultrasound also stands out for the range of possibilities offered to the aesthetic professional. Unlike laser or radiofrequency treatments, it can be used in different areas of the face and body, especially when combined with HIPRO's state-of-the-art technology.  Because it reaches the subcutaneous layers and tissues up to the level of the SMAS, HIFU technology is indicated for the treatment of different aging-related conditions, for example:

  • Body and facial sagging;
  • Wrinkles and expression lines around the eyes;
  • Rejuvenation of the neck region;
  • Loss of contour definition of the face and body;
  • Adiposity located in the jowls, arms, abdomen, and other points.

All this by working at different depths according to the treatment objectives, for example, from 1.5mm to 4.5mm in facial treatments, and from 6mm to 13mm in body treatments.
