HIFU treatment

What is HIFU?

HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. It is a procedure whereby ultrasound waves are used to create heat at a specific point in the body. This heat creates controlled damage to the the tissue, which then repairs itself, creating a natural lift. This treatment is used in skin therapy to sculpt, mold and lift an area.

Is HIFU safe?

HIFU is a safe treatment to target skin laxity, deep wrinkles and sagging skin. The ultrasound waves are focused on a targeted point, and the surrounding tissue is not affected. The targeted tissue then repairs itself and in that process collagen is produced – which helps the skin to tighten and lift.

What are the advantages of HIFU?

HIFU is non-invasive in that no incision needs to be made in order to get the desired tightening and lifting effect. This treatment is also known as “the non-invasive facelift” because of the outcomes it achieves.

HIFU is precise – the treatment is targeted onto the concerned tissue only, leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected.

What are the disadvantages of HIFU?

In order to properly benefit from this treatment, a person needs to have enough tissue in order to create thermal damage. If a person has lost tissue in the area due to aging, then this treatment will not be appropriate to perform. Our Skin Specialists use a caliper to determine if there is enough tissue present during the consultation process.

HIFU is a technology that allows us to create a natural lift in the target area without having to resort to more invasive treatments such as face lifts. This is a wonderful benefit as downtime is reduced drastically as well as the risks that come with traditional surgery such as going under general anesthetic and the risk of infection.

Conclusion

HIFU is a technology that allows us to create a natural lift in the target area without having to resort to more invasive treatments such as facelifts. This is a wonderful benefit as downtime is drastically reduced, along with the risks that come with traditional surgery, such as going under general anesthesia and the risk of infection. Overall, HIFU offers a promising alternative for those seeking to improve skin laxity and achieve a more youthful appearance without the need for invasive procedures.
