HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. It is the only FDA approved procedure for skin tightening. HIFU is an advanced aesthetic technology that involves the use of sound wave frequencies for facial contouring that is used to lift, tighten, rejuvenate facial, chest and neck tissues.
As we age changes occur in basal layers of our skin leading to loss of its shape and elasticity. This is how we develop skin sagging and wrinkling giving an aged appearance.
The ultrasound waves heat up your skin and muscle layer known as the SMAS, activating the cells.This jumpstarts a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. The treatment itself doesn’t involve any creams, fillers or toxins, it just relies on your body’s own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.
HIFU lifts and tones loose skin to counteract the effect of both time and gravity. It is highly effective procedure is renowned for providing people with new definition after just one treatment.
HIFU Therapy stimulates collagen production in the skin’s foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over the following 2-3 months. Lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers at an optimal temperature, so laser treatments typically only treat superficial skin. Since the two technologies often treat different types of skin issues, they’re actually very compatible.
The procedure can be effective at treating the following areas of the face:
Anyone with sagging skin and signs of ageing is a suitable candidate for HIFU.
The length of the procedure will vary with the area being treated and your desired results. A full HIFU face and neck liftusually takes between 60-90 minute.
Generally, only one session is required. However as skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help your skin keep pace with the body’s natural aging process.
Maximum results can be seen within a month, with further improvements happening for up to six months.The onset of the new collagen synthesis occurs in the first three to four months after the therapy and lasts for around one year.
With a single HIFU Therapy treatment there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.
As the HIFU energy is supplied, you will feel tiny amounts of it being deposited to particular depths, indicating that the collagen-building procedure has been commenced. Ease levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. There is no after procedure pain.
The results lasts for about an year before progressively wearing off.
HIFU facelifts have an excellent side effect profile. As the procedure uses only an ultrasound applicator over your face instead of any invasive surgical needles, there is next to zero bruising, swelling, pain, and downtime.
The HIFU ultrasound facial method has been developed over the years to ensure that the treatment effect is stronger and safer.
