UTIMS A3: High Intensity Focused Ultrasound

Skin lifting and body contouring

HIFU is a highly precise medical procedure that applies high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to locally heat and destroy diseased or damaged tissue through ablation. Ultrasound beams are focused on diseased tissue, and due to the significant energy deposition at the focus, temperature within the tissue can rise to levels from 65° to 85°C, destroying the diseased tissue by coagulation necrosis. Higher temperature levels are typically avoided to prevent boiling of liquids inside the tissue.

HIFU treatment mechanism

HIFU is delivered into SMAS(Superficial Muscular Aponeurosis System), fascia, deep dermis and subcutaneous fibrous tissue and generates the temperature increased. When the temperature grows more than 47’C(the threshold of protein denaturation), the coagulation zone is generated. The zone is filled out by the tissue/muscle surrounded and in this moment, the skin muscle gets elastic and the wrinkle is tightened.

Transducer Heat Lesion Valuation System (THLVS)

HIFU devices can be dangerous and hard to control. Especially, the excessive energy use of it and the unstable heat lesion may cause side effects such as burn accidents. Therefore, the most important technique of HIFU system is the measurement & evaluation of HIFU Energy. THLVS is the HIFU system developed by KORUST cooperated with an university in South Korea. THLVS is the device which can evaluate the safety of transducers and was developed by a HIFU professional researchers group for 10 years.

Centerless HIFU

  1. Stable focal points(heat lesion) and maximizing the treatment outcomes
  2. Reduced side effects, such as pain and burns
  3. Safer treatment

KORUST’s Transducer is distinguished by its stability and shape compared to competitors. The heat lesion is shaped like an egg and more focused, which is why UTIMS is able to deliver the safer and better treatment result.

  •  Short vertical line heat lesion and safer treatment
  •  Damage reduction in the deep skin
  •  Safe treatment with high energy levels
