HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) Technology

A Non-invasive Way That Lifts and Tightens your Skin

Mechanism of Action

The HIFU procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, non-surgical HIFU bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.

No Downtime & Natural Results

Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2−3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow. While HIFU procedure won’t duplicate the results of a facelift. It’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery—and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is HIFU?2021-02-10T12:06:47+08:00

HIFU, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, is a non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift loose or sagging skin on the face, brow, neck without any downtime.

What does collagen do? How does HIFU stimulate the creation of collagen?2021-02-10T11:28:47+08:00

Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed, toned and elastic.

As we age, collagen loses its elasticity and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward.

HIFU jump starts a natural repair process that produces fresh, new collagen.

Is HIFU surgery?2021-02-10T11:37:54+08:00

No. HIFU is a non-invasive procedure that addresses the skin and support layers below it, but doesn’t entail cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

What problem areas does HIFU target? What kind of results do you get?2021-02-10T11:38:42+08:00

HIFU addresses mild to moderate loose or sagging skin on the face and neck. Specifically, by reconditioning and renewing the skin from within, HIFU will lift the brow and give a more refreshed look overall.

HIFU is also used to lift and tighten sagging skin on the neck and under the chin, addressing the “turkey gobbler” and “double chin,” which many patients are trying to eliminate.

How long until I see results?2021-02-10T11:39:21+08:00

Patients may enjoy some initial effect but the ultimate lifting and toning will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, more elastic collagen.

As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a procedure.

Is there any downtime?2021-02-10T11:40:09+08:00

HIFU is an entirely non-invasive procedure and as such, there is no downtime. You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take.

What does it feel like?2021-02-10T11:40:36+08:00

Patients have noted there can be some discomfort while the ultrasound energy is being delivered, but it is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated.

Are there any side effects?2021-02-10T11:41:07+08:00

There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.

There is always the possibility for other less common post-procedural effects, which your practitioner will review with you.
