DMA: Dynamic Muscle Activation

Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA) is a breakthrough, versatile technology designed for non-invasive jawline contouring. It can be a standalone treatment or used in conjunction with other treatments, such as TriPollar, as a non-surgical facial sculpting tool. DMA stimulates the Subcutaneous Musculo-Aponeurotic System. or SMAS. The SMAS is responsible for moving the skin in the lower part of the face; and is crucial for facial expressions. The SMAS connects deeper facial muscles with the skin. It is considered a fundamental supportive framework of facial skin. With age, the SMAS weakens and loses its ability to support the skin, resulting in sagging skin, deep wrinkles, and a more noticeable “gravity effect”. By stimulating the SMAS, facial skin becomes toned, tighter, and lifted, especially around the jawlines. This is also the reason why plastic surgeons target the SMAS when they perform facelifts.

Layers of the Skin

If you’ve read our recent blog posts, you would know all about the different layers of the skin: the epidermis, the dermis, and the hypodermis. Each of these layers plays a pivotal role in our skin health and bodily functioning. However, underneath these layers, lies the muscle level- the SMAS. Until recently, skincare experts and dermatologists overlooked the SMAS as a major factor in facial signs of aging. With new research and new innovative treatments, we have learned that targeted treatment at this level can significantly improve sagging skin, wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of facial volume. This DMA treatment is completely non-invasive, with little to no pain, and no extra recovery downtime.

How DMA Works

DMA is based on galvanic pulses that trigger controlled SMAS contractions. These contractions reinforce the underlying muscles and facilitate skin lifting effect. In addition, DMA pulses promote local circulation, tissue oxygenation, and lymphatic drainage. When used synchronously with TriPollar, which heats the deep dermis, greater fibroblast activity leads to increased collagen regeneration. From just the first treatment, facial skin will appear tighter and less saggy. Wrinkles and fine lines are reduced, and the jawline is toned and sculpted.
