HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound and is a non-surgical face lift treatment which uses ultrasound waves in order to treat saggy skin, resulting in a younger, more lifted appearance.
For clients who wouldn't like to have aesthetic surgery, this treatment offers a chance to tighten their skin through a safe and non-invasive technique. HIFU delivers a precise and intense fractional ultrasound energy that goes deeper into and beyond the dermis, being able to reach the SMAS layer. It is a powerful, single-session procedure.
With the help of acoustic energy, different skin depths in which thermal coagulation zones are developed are treated. Following this, a wound healing response triggers the submuscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) tightening and development of new collagen for long-term lifting. There will be a noticeable difference in fine lines, wrinkles and skin laxity that can last up to 2 years.
This fantastic treatment is the latest non-surgical solution for skin lifting, clinically proven to effectively provide: brow lifting, jowl lifting, nasolabial folds reduction, neck laxity reduction, wrinkle reduction and overall skin tightening and rejuvenation. HIFU can also be used on the body for contouring and fat reduction.
There's no downtime after HIFU treatment and you can continue with your daily routine as normal. Moreover, the overlying skin layers are unaffected, so no one will notice you had treatment done.
HIFU for fat reduction
Similarly to the HIFU face treatment, HIFU body also works by using highly focused acoustic energy to create target-point heating. However, this treatment reaches different depths to target fat removal.
The effect creates a focal point of energy, exposing fat cells to temperatures of 60-65°c, effectively destroying them so they're eliminated by your own body's lymphatic system.
Who is a good candidate for HIFU?
If your main problem is sagging and your ultimate goal is a “lifting” effect, you’re a good candidate for HIFU. The depth of its tissue tightening will allow for more prominent results. HIFU will be the best choice for tightening loose skin around the jowls, improving the appearance of a double chin or “lifting” the brows.
