HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. This treatment can target various depths of the body’s tissue for skin tightening, skin lifting, and body contouring. Entirely non-invasive, HIFU machines work by targeting deep layers in the skin it boosts new collagen production and collagen regeneration right at the source.
What is HIFU treatment for face?
HIFU treatment for the face works as a non-invasive facelift. It tightens the skin, irons out wrinkles, shrinks pores, targets the ‘V’ line formation and jowl lines. HIFU facial improves overall skin tone, pores, brightness, and elasticity.
HIFU is used by top aesthetic doctors
Many high-profile hospitals and top aesthetics doctors use a market-leading device. This HIFU machine targets the upper dermis 1.5mm, lower dermis 3.00mm, and most importantly the SMAS at 4.5mm. The SMAS is the layer that sits between your muscle and your fat layer.
This SMAS layer is the actual area a plastic surgeon would pull and tighten under a surgical operation using a knife. HIFU targets this layer without any surgical incisions, giving the patient a no-downtime facelift. This means you can gain excellent results without any risks associated with surgery, such as infection, scarring, swelling, etc.
Treatments are fast and results can be seen immediately for some patients, depending on the level of laxity your skin has. HIFU treatment is known as the ‘lunchtime face lift’ as it’s quick and you can return to work and continue with your day. Some people may have some mild redness and maybe light bruising the next day.
