HIFU is a non-surgical treatment that uses focused ultrasound to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face/neck and body. It is also an alternative to surgical facelift. Collagen is stimulated by the ultrasound waves and the heat it generates, which results in tighter and more youthful looking skin. There are no side effects associated with HIFU, making it a safe option for those looking for a non-surgical solution to their skin concerns.

HIFU – Non-Surgical Facelift

Introduction

HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) provides a non-invasive option for addressing sagging skin on the face/neck and body. It is an alternative to surgical facelift as it creates heat deep beneath the surface of the skin-the SMAS layer, which is otherwise assumed to only be achieved through a surgical procedure. Using focused ultrasound waves, collagen production is stimulated, leading to improved elasticity and firmness in the skin. HIFU oftentimes produces more impressive results than laser treatment due to the extreme depths that can be reached.

HIFU Skin

HIFU therapy is an efficient and secure method for producing a rise in collagen levels in the skin. Most individuals experience a quick firming affect directly after the treatment, but the most substantial results usually appear over a period of two to three months as new collagen continues to form. Commonly, this technique is used to treat the cheeks, chin, and neck area, yet there are also body and bust treatments available. Ultimately, HIFU provides smooth and exceptional outcomes by enhancing the natural production of collagen in the skin.

Who may benefit from HIFU treatment?

HIFU can provide a beneficial solution for both men and women, requiring no downtime and having the potential to be performed over a lunch break. Individuals with sagging jaw lines, nasolabial folds, drooping eyelids and eyebrows, a double chin, sagging skin around the neck, fine lines and wrinkles, an uneven skin tone or texture, and large pores may find that HIFU offers effective results.

What can be treated?

Examples of what we can treat:

  • Loose skin around the jawline
  • Nasiolabial folds/hanging cheeks
  • Droopy eyelids
  • Loose neck
  • Dubbelhaka
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Large pores

How is the treatment done?

The treatment achieved through HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) is carried out by delivering energy which penetrates the skin without causing any damage to the uppermost layer of skin. This energy reaches the dermis and SMAS layer, which are the same layers tightened during a surgical facelift. The thermal energy generated in the tissue not only provides an immediate tightening effect, but also promotes collagen regeneration to ensure long-term tightness.

How long does the treatment take?

The length of treatment depends on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. Treating both face and neck usually takes 30~45 minutes.

Is the treatment painful?

The degree of pain experienced during the treatment varies from person to person. The majority of patients find the procedure tolerable without any need for anaesthetic. It’s possible to feel some discomfort associated with the procedure, but it tends to be short-lived, typically ending when the treatment is complete.

Result

Following a treatment session, most individuals experience a prompt tightening sensation. The maximum effects of the procedure, however, manifest in two to three months when new collagen is formed. Subsequent to the initial treatment, there is a constant rejuvenation process continuing up to six months. Generally, the outcome of one session can last up to two years.

Things to consider before treatment

For optimal results, it is best to avoid performing a facial peel the day before or after your appointment. Gentlemen are encouraged to provide an as close as possible shave of their face prior to the treatment. During the procedure, some patients may feel a mild heat or tingling sensation on their skin; redness may also occur immediately and is likely to subside in a matter of hours. To ensure successful and long-lasting results, please refrain from exposing yourself to direct sunlight for the coming days following your appointment.

Is the treatment safe?

HIFU has been used in over half a million treatments worldwide and no side effects have been found. The treatment is FDA approved and CE marked. Ultrasound has been used in medicine for over 50 years and is proven safe and effective in

Are there side effects?

You may experience redness or minor swelling at first, and you may feel some tingling. These will disappear within a few hours. This signals that the process of collagen renewal has begun. In some cases, minor bruising may occur.

How many treatments are needed?

Experts agree that dramatic clinical results can be achieved with HIFU with improvements up to 6 months after the initial treatment. Touch-up treatments can be performed at the earliest after 6 months, depending on the degree of lifting and tightening that needs to be addressed.
