What Is HIFU?
Understanding HIFU: A Non-Invasive Skin Tightening Treatment
HIFU, or High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, is a non-invasive cosmetic technique used to tighten the skin. The treatment process utilizes ultrasound energy to stimulate and warm the deeper layers of skin, which activates collagen production.
How Does HIFU Work?
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive treatment that works by depositing ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin.
In just one session, all the layers of skin can contract, stimulating the production of new collagen in the area.
HIFU is highly effective for firming, tightening and lifting the facial skin.
It is also effective in reducing excess skin on the body. By initiating the repair process in the skin, HIFU helps produce new, stronger, and fresh collagen.
HIFU can treat both treat face and body areas. This includes:
Full Face & Neck
Undereyes and crowfeet
If you're seeking a non-invasive way to tighten your skin and enhance your overall appearance, HIFU is an excellent choice. Remember that individual factors can affect results, so it's possible that several treatments will be necessary for the best outcome.
When will I see results?
While some clients may experience immediate initial improvements, the best results in terms of lifting, tightening, and firming usually become noticeable after two to three months.
How many sessions should I have?
Every 4-6 weeks and typically between 1 and 3 treatments are recommended for best results. Top-up sessions are performed as required, but usually only once or twice a year.
Is there any downtime?
Due to the non-invasive nature of HIFU treatments, there is virtually no downtime
Will it hurt?
You may experience some mild heating or a slight tingling sensation during treatment. Patients describe this as moderate and acceptable.
