WHAT IS HIFU?
HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a non-invasive cosmetic technology that is used for skin tightening, lifting, contouring and smoothing the face and the body.
HIFU is concentrated ultrasound thermal energy, precisely deposits intense, tiny points of heat into the skin, fat or muscle without affecting the surrounding tissue or skin surface. HIFU technology has been used extensively in medicine and has is now being used for safe and effective aesthetic treatments.
HIFU stimulates collagen production and improves the texture of skin. The overall effect of the treatment is to promote tightening and lifting of the skin in these areas. It also reduces the wrinkles, shrinks pores, targets the ‘V’ line formation and jowl lines.
There are different technologies available for this purpose such as laser and RF treatments. HIFU penetrates at deeper depths and higher temperatures than RF and laser, treating beyond the dermis, where skin structure starts to weaken.
How is it performed?
HIFU technology is usually well tolerated. You are able to resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment. Some slight redness or swelling may occur, but it should subside quickly. A light tingling sensation of the treated area may persist for a few weeks. Skin may feel tender immediately after the procedure which can last up a few weeks. A headache may follow HIFU treatment on the forehead area. The treated area may be flush, red and feel tingly. Bruising and numbness in the treated area may occur which will subside within few days.
Generally, people are fine to immediately go back to their routines, sometimes with a little mineral make up applied. Avoid saunas, steam baths and exercise for 24 hours after treatment Apply broad spectrum sun protection for a week after treatment.
How many sessions will I need?
HIFU is an amazing technology that delivers dramatic results in as little as one to three sessions. Results take at least three months to manifest. It is recommended to have at least 4 week break in between HIFU sessions. Results will last 1 to 3 years without maintenance.
