Ths Device intended uses are only Aesthetic, no medical claims are made at any point This device is only intended to improve the lifestyle of the individual and his/her appearance. No claims of curing disease are made on this device.  This instruction manual provides a description of this HIFU System, its controls and displays. Instructions for its basic operation and other  information important to the user. Detailed clinical use of the device is provided separately. The Information in this manual is intended solely for the devices manufactured by Areton Ltd and Areton Ltd’s Clients.

Warnings and Disclaimer.

Despite the information provided in this manual the user has to always exercise caution in the use of these types of Devices. This is due to the ablative power of professional High Intensity Focused Ultrasound devices. Failure to exercise caution can result in injuries. This device intended uses are merely aesthetic, no claims of fat loss are made with this device. Do not use this device on the upper eyelids, this could cause permanent injuries to the eye.

Ablative Power of Professional HIFU Devices.

Despite the claims of “complete safety” made by some manufacturers about their professional HIFU Devices, the ablative power of these types of devices must not be underestimated. The power delivered by professional HIFU devices can bend the surface and produce dents onto pieces of hard perspex, this provides an idea of the ablating power of these devices. For these reason the aesthetic practitioner has to exercise caution in the use of these powerful devices.

Dents caused by the device on a piece of perspex. The distance between the dents can be varied by varying the appropriate parameter on the user interface.

Vaginal Ultrasound Transducer or Cartridge.

The device comes with two Vaginal cartridges as a standard. 4.5 mm and 3.0 mm in depth respectively. Usually both cartrides are used in the Vaginal tightening treatment.

Packaging Detail of the Vaginal Transducer or Cartridge.


Vaginal Tightness Measurer.

The main purpose of the Vaginal HIFU treatment is to improve the sexual life quality of the individual. Therefore, the vaginal tighteness mearurer is a very useful tool because it makes it possible for the aesthetic professional to provide an estimation of the vaginal tightness before and after the treatment.

This is the pressure gouge inserted into the vagina to measure the vaginal tightness.

Introduction to the device user interface.

Click on the user interface to enter the next interface (Choose treatment type). As shown in the picture below there are two visible options, a face and a vaginal picture.  To stat the device in order for face and body contouring treatment click on the picture of the face. The software detect automatically which cartridge you are placing in the handle and depending on the depth of the respective cartridge it select the type of software required, either face treatment or body contouring. For example, if you place the 1.5 mm, 3.0 mm ad 4.5mm catridges the software will show you the picture of the face where the treatment has to be carried out.  In case you place the 8.0 mm or the 13.0 mm cartridge the software will show you the parts of the body where you can apply the HIFU treatment for each respective cartridge.

To summarise,  in case of

  • face treatment click on the face icon and insert the face cartridges, 1.5 mm, 3.0 mm or 4.5 mm
  •  body treatment click on the face icon and  insert the 8.0 mm or 13.0 mm cartridges


Face Skin Tightening and Body Contouring User Interface.

System General Advice For Face and Body Contouring.

Check if the handle and connector are making good contact. Make sure the cartridge is correctly identified by the user interface Do not place the handle or cartridge on the floor or other hard surfaces, always use the dedicated hook on the unit. Do not twist the handle cable to avoid damaging the internal wires

During its device normal operation only utilise ultrasound conductive gels, do not use other lubricants or emulsions like especially oils, Avoid damage to the cartridge or circuit.

The cartridges have a memory function, After use, please store it separately away from magnetic card or static-charged object.

Do not insert objects other than the cartridges into the handle, otherwise the system circuitry maybe damaged.

Guidelines for Face HIFU Treatment.

There is not hard and fast rule in the way the HIFU face treatment has to be carried out . In general the higher overall energy delivered into the skin the better the skin tightening effects. This is because the higher the energy delivered the better the collagen regeneration effects.  By all means certain areas of the face should be avoided for safety reasons. This is because the HIHU devices has fundamentally ablative effects at deep levels of the skin therefore certain areas of the face were certain organs (like throat, nerves or bones etc) should be avoided.

There are three cartridges indicated for face HIFU treatment:

  • 4.5 mm in depth
  • 3.0 mm in depth and
  • 1.5 mm in depth

The Aesthetic practitioner should use the all the three cartridges during every HIFU face treatment to ensure the High Intensity Ultrasound Energy is delivered to all three depths in the skin. This will ensure the best collagen regeneration at the three levels of the skin.  In any case, please bear in mind that each cartridge can only be used in certain areas of the face, while others should be avoided. Once the cartridge is inserted into the handle, the software provides clear indications of the areas in the face where the treatment with the respective cartridge is allowed.  Also the Software displays the maximum number of shots per area, but this should be used as an overall indication only.

Generally the aesthetic practitioner has to start the treatment  using the deepest depth, the 4.5 mm cartridge, followed by the 3.0 mm and finally by the 1.5 mm cartridge.

When placing each face cartridge on the handle the screen will display the areas of the face where the treatment is permissible at the type of cartridge you are using, in picture below for example you can see the area on the face where the cartridge 1.5 mm in depth can be used.


The video Below shows you a training session for the Areton Portable HIFU. This is a useful video to watch because this training session goes through the main safety points in Face HIFU treatment which are the same as the safety indications for the Areton 3 in 1 HIFU. Therefore it is recommendable you take your time to watch the following video in its entirety.

Guidelines for Neck Treatment.


Avoid Treating the Throat.

The neck is a delicate area, therefore it has to be treated with particular care.  The throat must not be treated by the HIFU device. This is because the throat organ is located on the superficial area of the skin inn the neck, therefore any ablative ultrasonic treatment could cause unnecessary traumas to the thyroid gland and the throat.

Introduction to HIFU Vaginal Tightening.


The same principle which applies to HIFU skin tightening applies also to vaginal  tightening. One of the advantages of HIFU Vaginl tightening are the low risks to the individual. The treatment is non invasive and non surgical, it causes no wound, no scars, can tighten the vagina effectivelly proving women sexual life.


The ulsound cartridge will delivershots to the vaginal internal walls at the depth of 3.0 mm and 4.5 mm. This  will cause a tightening of the Vaginal internal walls and improve the subject sexual life and sexual sensitivity in general.

Accessory Picture

Brief Explanation
3.0 mm Cartridge  

The ultrasound reaches the mucous tissue directly to speed the cell activity, Helping superficial collagen regeneration and  increasing overall tissue elasticity

4.5 mm Cartridge

The power reaches a deeper  layer better helping vaginal muscle layer to recover elasticity; contributing to an overall tighter Vaginal internal wall.

Pressure tester   Insert the smallest ribbed balloon into the Vagina. Pump and look at the user interface to take the pressure measurement.


Vaginal Tightening Treatment Routine.


  • Sterilise the Vaginal Pressure tester with a sterilising product, this is important to prevent cross infections.. Then insert the pressure measuring gouge into the vagina and record the value measured to check for future improvements of the Vaginal Tightness. Repeat the Vaginal tightness test before any subsequent treatment.




  • Before using the device, sterilise and wipe the Vaginal handle and the Vaginal Cartridges by using alcohol or non corrosive antiseptics. This is important to prevent cross infections. Insert the 4.5 mm cartridge first.
Basic pictorial representation of the HIFU Vaginal tightening treatment .
  • Insert a condom to avoid direct contact of the Vagina with the cartridge and handle. Despite the use of a condom it it essential to sterilise well the cartridges and handle in advance.
  • Set up the unit according to the number of shots per angle rotation etc.  Select the lowest power setting which is then to be adjusted up.
  • Before inserting the vaginal handle  place abundant amount of appropriate Vaginal Lubricant to facilitate insertion and also ultrasonic conductivity.
  • Insert the handle into the Vagina up until reaching the cervix entrance. In order to do this appropriately, insert the handle gently and slowly. Always ask the subject whether she is still comfortable while you are inserting the handle very slowly, if the client shows signs of discomfort, stop immediately and if you have not encountered resistance yet, wait and continue to insert the handle slowly until you notice find some resistance. Only push very gently and always watch for the subject comfort while inserting the handle.  When  you have reached some degree of resistance pull the handle 5 to 7 mm and start the procedure by pressing the start button on the handle. The handle will automatically start rotating and firing the shots.
  • At the very beginning of the treatment, after the first one or two shots pause the treatment and increase the power level. Ask the Subject weather she is still comfortable and keep increasing the power level up to when the subject finds it tolerable, (this is the appropriate power level to be used thought the treatment). If at any point the power level becomes intolerable, turn it down to a tolerable level.
  • You are supposed to carry out a number of 360 Rotations to complete the treatment with the given cartridge. Once the first 360 degrees rotation has been completed  slightly pull out the handle gently. Pull the handle out equal to the length of the ultrasound line (the length of the black  part of the cartridge emitting the ultrasound).
  • Once you pulled the handle in the right position, then fire another full rotation making sure the subject can bear the intensity of the treatment. Repeat the process until you only have to pull the handle out off the vagina.
  • Once you have completed the treatment with the 4.5 Cartridge, remove the condom, remove the previous 4.5 mm Cartridge and insert the 3.0 mm cartridge. Wipe the handle with alcohol or other non corrosive steriliser and once dry, insert a new condom and repeat the whole process above.

It is advisable not to have intercourse for a week after the procedure and the procedure can be repeated in three to four months interval.
