What is SMAS lifting

What is ultrasonic SMAS face lifting and what results can be achieved? SMAS is a relatively new technology that was invented in the United States. The abbreviation SMAS in English stands for (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) “superficial muscular aponeurotic system”, which means the muscles that form the face frame. Each person is affected by the force of gravity and with age, the muscle-aponeurotic layer is stretched, its supporting properties weaken, as a result, facial tissues fall, wrinkles appear.

When a plastic surgeon performs a rejuvenation operation, it works with the patient’s face frame. The SMAS apparatus itself also acts, exerting an ultrasonic effect on the main muscles. Standard cosmetological hardware procedures (for example, laser) affect only the upper layers of the skin, while the deep layers are not affected. But it is the muscular skeleton that is responsible for the clarity of the facial contour, for the absence of a double chin, “bulldog cheeks”, wrinkles, and deep nasolabial folds. With the help of equipment for SMAS lifting, ultrasonic pulses penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, reaching the muscles, due to which the desired effect is achieved – facelift and rejuvenation.

The device for SMAS lifting looks like the equipment for ultrasound diagnostics – it consists of a stand, a sensor and a monitor. A microprocessor is connected to the sensor, which allows you to transmit ultrasonic pulses through the skin to the muscles and deep skin layers. The rejuvenation procedure lasts about an hour. The specialist treats the skin with gel, presses the sensor to the necessary areas and sends impulses. Due to the ultrasonic effect, areas of local temperature increase are formed, as a result, soft tissues are compressed, which contributes to the production of collagen. The procedure is almost painless – the patient usually only feels a tingling sensation, especially since the doctor immediately suggests taking a pain medication. After SMAS lifting on the skin, you may notice redness and swelling.

The effect of the procedure is noticeable immediately, but it is cumulative, and the maximum result can be seen after 3 months. Rejuvenation “lasts” one and a half to two years, then SMAS lifting can be repeated.

Who should use this procedure? You can do non-surgical lifting if you want to tighten the contour of the face, get rid of a double chin, sagging neck, deep nasolabial folds. SMAS technology has proven itself for the decollete zone – with its help you can tighten the skin in this area, tighten the chest, for example, after pregnancy.

Benefits of SMAS Lifting

We figured out what kind of procedure this is – SMAS lifting, now we will try to highlight its main advantages. No analogs of SMAS have been invented yet – only this procedure allows you to affect the tissue, penetrating to a depth of 4.5 mm and reaching the muscle layer. The technology combines well with other techniques involving the use of special devices. But the main advantage of SMAS lifting is that it does not include surgical intervention. Non-surgical lift does not require a painful period of rehabilitation, does not carry any risks, does not cause irreversible unwanted changes in appearance. This technique is in demand among public figures, such as politicians, models, television presenters, showmen. SMAS does not require much time, so busy people can afford this procedure without interruption from the work schedule. The procedure is considered one of the safest in the field of aesthetic medicine.

Other advantages of SMAS lifting:

  • Using the capabilities of SMAS, you can adjust all areas of the face.

  • A specialist can use an SMAS device to act with an ultrasonic pulse at exactly the depth that is necessary without damaging the surface of the tissue.

  • The technique is highly effective, while it is practically painless.

  • After such a lifting, there will be no seams, scars, scars on the skin.

  • The effect is noticeable after the first procedure.

  • You can do SMAS lifting at any time of the year.

Disadvantages of SMAS lifting

Rejuvenation using SMAS technology is virtually devoid of flaws. Due to the absence of a recovery period and serious side effects, such a lifting can be considered a “weekend” procedure, which can be accessed as easily as a manicure. Among the minuses are the high cost of the procedure, as well as a possible side effect in the form of swelling of the face and slight inflammation. The patient may feel a slight numbness of the face some time after the procedure, but this is actually a good signal – he says that the skin has received a “command” to tighten, not weaken.

Indications for the procedure

Before making a SMAS lift, a potential patient comes for a consultation with a cosmetologist who prescribes the procedure in accordance with the presence of certain indications for SMAS lifting. Among the indications for SMAS face lifting:

Contraindications for SMAS

There are not so many contraindications for SMAS face lifting, when compared with other hardware techniques. Contraindications for SMAS lifting are:

There are also time limits on this procedure. It is impossible to do procedures that cause edema before SMAS lifting (myostimulation, fractional laser peeling, plasmolifting, RF lifting, biorevitalization, etc.) Edema increases the volume of the skin, and because of this, the ultrasound pulse may not reach the required depth in order to reach muscle layer. As a result, scars may appear on the face. In this case, the desired effect of the procedure will be zero, because energy will not be able to reach the muscular skeleton in order to reduce its volume.

In general, SMAS lifting can be an excellent alternative to plastic surgery, so the popularity of this technique is growing.

Aftercare SMAS

Ultrasonic lifting has virtually no rehabilitation period. Immediately after the session, you can begin a normal life. Only strong aggressive factors should be avoided.:

It is especially necessary to protect the treated area from direct sunlight..

Full results can be seen after 2-3 months.

Biorevitalization and mesotherapy sessions can be carried out 2 weeks after the procedure..

SMAS technique is perfectly combined with Meso-Wharton, MesoSculpt, lipolytics, RF lifting, CO2 resurfacing.
