SMAS lifting 09.06.2023

SMAS lifting is one of the newest achievements in aesthetic medicine that provides effective and long-lasting results for facial rejuvenation by targeting the respective facial tissue layers.

The superficial muscular aponeurotic system, better known as SMAS, is a layer of tissue composed of collagen and elastin fibers, as well as fat cells. It connects the skin of the face and the superficial frontal muscles, stretching from the neck up to the frontal region. This system is responsible for the normal functioning of facial muscles.

SMAS lifting is the perfect solution for regaining lost skin elasticity in the muscular aponeurotic membrane, which often leads to loss of cheek contour and a double chin. During this procedure, muscles are tightened and excess skin and fat are removed to get rid of the following signs of aging:

  • Hollow cheeks
  • Sunken midface
  • The loose fat layer of neck
  • Nasolabial folds that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Loose skin on the chin and across the jawline

SMAS lifting is an excellent option for those who want to achieve significant results without surgical intervention and following the rehabilitation period.

Intervention is contraindicated in the following cases:

  • Pregnant and breastfeeding women
  • Diabetes
  • Systemic diseases of connective tissue (lupus, scleroderma)
  • Oncological and severe endocrine diseases
  • Presence of metal implants in the intervention area
  • Inflammation, open wounds, and injuries in the intervention area

Our center is provided with JEISYS ULTRAcel Q+ equipment for effective SMAS lifting intervention, which stands out for its high-speed and directional exposures - 100 irradiations per minute.

Currently, there are 14 cartridges of ULTRAcel Q+ equipment, which are designed not only for the treatment of the face, but also for the whole body. The device has a number of advantages, including access to delicate and small areas of the face.

The Linear cartridge of  HIFU equipment is used for said intervention. Due to its powerful ultrasound energy Linear cartridge is being used for even contouring the face, leaving a massive effect, which is based on the destruction of the fat layer, the synthesis and reconstruction of new collagen molecules.
