The principle of HIFU is to accurately focus highly concentrated ultrasonic waves on the treatment site for segmented fixed-point heating, instantly warm the temperature of the treatment tissue to 60°C to 70°C, and then bring the heat energy to the dermis and aponeurosis. Since the aponeurosis is the central part that supports the face, activating the collagen in the aponeurosis can tighten the skin, tighten the muscles, skin, etc., so as to restructure the supporting force of the underlying tissue, so as to achieve light lines and tightness To enhance the contour effect.
