We now have the ability to use ultrasound imaging to SEE the layers of tissue we want to treat below the surface of the skin, and then focus the same ultrasound energy to TREAT only the targeted tissue. Because this is accomplished without disrupting the epidermis, or top layer of skin, patients experience no downtime whatsoever. The treatment triggers the body's own regenerative response, which results in a firming, tightening and actual lifting of tissue over time.
