HIFU Therapy

HUFU therapy: Younger appearance and fresher skin without the need for surgery

HIFU therapy is a process in which collagen production and elastin are stimulated and strengthened, creating a firmer foundation for the skin to have smoother and younger looking skin. Hifu can be the answer to your concerns about aging and sagging skin.

Facial HIFU continues for a long time after treatment. One of the unique benefits of facial hypo is the long-term results. Unlike some injections, which are absorbed and reduced after a few months, HIFU Facial Lift stimulates the skin to continue producing collagen for a long time.

How does HIFU therapy work?

Collagen is a structural protein that is produced in the skin and is what tightens and fills your skin. As the level of natural collagen production decreases with age, the skin can begin to wrinkle, sag, lose elasticity and lack freshness. By stimulating the growth of collagen, Haifu tightens, thickens and keeps the skin fresh. The results are visible about six to nine months after the first treatment.

Our experienced and trained medical professionals can answer any questions you may have about HIFU.

About HIFU Therapy

HIFU stands for ‘High Intensity Focused Ultrasound’, also is known as non-invasive facelift, is a treatment for skin rejuvenation. This treatment can tighten and lift the skin and help it to regenerate collagen. It is sometimes called the “Lunchtime Facelift”, because it is so quick and has no downtime.  

HIFU therapy is also an effective treatment for scars and acne on the face and other parts of the body. It is known as the safest technique for tightening and lifting the face skin. High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) delivers heat energy directly to the subcutaneous tissue that can stimulate and renew the skin collagen production. As a result, it improves the texture and reduces sagging and dropping of skin.

Please note that HIFU therapy will not have a permanent result. It will last from 1 to 3 years. Yearly touch-ups are required to make it last longer. However, one is allowed to do HIFU for 6 to 8 times during a life time.

If you are looking for a long-lasting method for getting rid of wrinkles and rejuvenate your face,facelift or thread lift are recommended.

How Is HIFU Therapy Performed?

HIFU therapy doesn’t have any pain and doesn’t need any anesthesia. However, some people might feel slight discomfort during the procedure, so the doctor suggests them to take acetaminophen or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), such as ibuprofen before the treatment.

In the first step, the doctor cleans the target area then applies a topical anesthetic cream.  In the next step, the special ultrasound gel will be applied. The doctor then will place the HIFU device against the skin and adjust it to the proper setting. Ultrasound energy is then delivered to the target area in short pulse for almost 30 to 90 minutes. The device will then be removed.

The patient is free to go home and resume their normal activities right after the procedure. The result will appear gradually within the next 3 months.
