hifu treatment mechanism
Ulthera or Ultherapy is one of the most popular and highly developed systems available.Doublo is a hifu machine which is designed by Hironic Company in South Korea.
Non-invasive ultrasound energy generates low levels of heat in the targeted skin( about 65 degree celsius) so makes coagulation points in SMAS layer 4.5 milimeter under skin. This stimulates the cells for collagen production and tissue rejuvenation.
With just one treatment, HIFU pushes mature skin to start working hard again.
