HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) has been a staple in skin lifting treatment over the years. HIFU is a non-invasive lifting and contouring treatment for the face, eyes, neck area, and body. It tightens loose and sagging skin as well as reduces wrinkles caused by premature aging skin.

What is HIFU?

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to lift and tighten the skin. It works by delivering heat energy to the deeper layers of the skin, causing the tissue to contract and stimulate the production of collagen. HIFU is often used to treat areas of the face and neck that have begun to sag or show signs of aging, such as the jowls, nasolabial folds, and brows. The treatment typically takes 15 to 45 minutes to complete, depending on the area being treated. HIFU is known for its ability to produce visible results without surgery or downtime, making it a popular alternative to more invasive cosmetic procedures.

What are the benefits of HIFU?

  • Non-invasive procedure that does not require incisions or cuts
  • Precise targeting of specific tissues without damaging surrounding tissues
  • Versatile treatment option for a range of medical conditions
  • Minimal side effects compared to traditional surgery
  • Shorter treatment time compared to surgery
  • Effective in treating certain medical conditions, such as prostate cancer and uterine fibroids
  • Minimal recovery time, allowing patients to resume normal activities quickly
  • Does not require general anesthesia, reducing potential risks associated with anesthesia

What to expect?

After a High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) treatment, patients may notice immediate skin tightening and lifting effects, with further improvement over the following weeks as collagen production is stimulated. Results can last for several months or longer, depending on individual factors such as age and skin condition. After the procedure, it is important to avoid exposure to the sun and to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect the skin. Patients may experience some redness and swelling, which usually subside within a few hours to a few days. It is also recommended to avoid harsh skincare products and procedures that may irritate the skin, such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion, for a few days after the treatment.
