WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT….
What does it do?
– Tightens the skin
– Reduces the appearance of jowls
– Lifts drooping eyebrows
– Smoothes wrinkles on the face
– A natural, gradual result for both men and women
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a relatively new non-invasive cosmetic treatment for skin tightening and painless replacement for a facelift. It uses ultrasound energy to encourage the production of collagen, which results in firmer skin.
HIFU is most widely known for its medical use in treating tumours and the first reported use of HIFU for aesthetic use was 2009 for brow lifts and later FDA approved to improve lines and wrinkles of the upper chest and neckline (décolletage). People were able to see results in a few months after treatment, without the risks associated with surgery.
HIFU uses focused ultrasound energy to target the layers of skin just below the surface. The ultrasound energy causes the tissue to heat up rapidly. Once the cells in the targeted area reach a certain temperature, they experience cellular damage. While this may seem counterintuitive, the damage actually stimulates the cells to produce more collagen — a protein that provides structure to the skin.
The increase in collagen results in tighter firmer skin with fewer wrinkles. Since the high-frequency ultrasound beams are focused on a specific tissue site below the skin’s surface, there’s no damage to the upper layers of the skin and adjacent issue.
HIFU may not be appropriate for everyone. In general, the procedure works best on people older than 30 with mild-to-moderate skin laxity. If you have severe photodamaged skin or a high degree of loose skin, you may need several treatments before seeing results
HIFU is considered a safe, effective, and non-invasive procedure for tightening the facial skin.
Its advantages over a surgical face lift are hard to deny. There are no incisions, no scarring, and no required rest or recovery time. HIFU is also far less expensive than a face lift.
Most people see full results three months after their final treatment.
