HIFU Skin Tightening Ultrasound
WHAT IS HIFU SKIN TIGHTENING?
HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is FDA approved ) is a non-invasive treatment that targets skin tightening and fat reduction through application of energy to the skin and underlying tissue.
HIFU treatment offers an effective way to address the reduction of collagen in the skin, its uses focused ultrasound energy to target the layers of skin just below the surface. The ultrasound energy causes the tissue to heat up rapidly.
Once the cells in the targeted area reach a certain temperature, they experience cellular damage. While this may seem counterintuitive, the damage actually stimulates the cells to produce more collagen — a protein that provides structure to the skin.
The increase in collagen results in tighter, firmer skin source with fewer wrinkles. Since the high-frequency ultrasound beams are focused on a specific tissue site below the skin’s surface, there’s no damage to the upper layers of the skin and adjacent issue.
HIFU may not be appropriate for everyone. In general, the procedure works best on people older than 30 with mild-to-moderate skin laxity.
People with photodamaged skin or a high degree of loose skin may need several treatments before seeing results.
Older people with more extensive photo-aging, severe skin laxity, or very saggy skin on the neck aren’t good candidates.
Benefits of high-intensity focused ultrasound
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), HIFU and other nonsurgical alternatives to facelifts have seen a major increase in popularity over the last few years. The total number of procedures performed has increased 64.8 percent between 2015 and 2018.
HIFU has many aesthetic benefits, including:
preventing fine line
tightening sagging skin on the neck (sometimes called turkey neck)
lifting the cheeks, eyebrows, and eyelids
enhancing jawline definition
tightening of the décolletage
smoothing the skin
Treatment date 6 weeks later 12 weeks later
HIFU PROCEDURE STEP
There’s no special preparation needed before having an HIFU procedure. You shall remove all makeup and skin care products from the target area before treatment.
Here’s what to expect at your appointment:
A technician first cleans the target area.
They may apply a topical anesthetic cream before starting.
The technician then applies an ultrasound gel.
The HIFU device is placed against the skin.
Using an ultrasound viewer, the technician adjusts the device to the right setting.
Ultrasound energy is then delivered to the target area in short pulses for roughly 30 to 60 minutes.
The device is removed.
DOES HIFU HAVE SIDE EFFECTS?
HIFU is considered very safe if performed by a trained and qualified professional.
The best part about this treatment is that you’re able to resume your normal activities immediately after you leave the provider’s office. Some slight redness or swelling may occur, but it should subside quickly. More likely you will feel like sunburned next day and a light tingling sensation of the treated area may persist for up to few weeks.
Rarely, you may experience temporary numbness or bruising, but these side effects usually go away after a few days.
HIFU is considered a safe, effective, and noninvasive procedure for tightening the facial skin.
Its advantages over a surgical face lift are hard to deny. There are no incisions, no scarring, and no required rest or recovery time. HIFU is also far less expensive than a face lift.
Most clients age between 30 to 55 only require one HIFU treatment to receive the maximum benefit. The HIFU will continue to building collagen up to three to six months. You might benefit from additional treatments depended your desired results in the least time possible.
If you’re looking for a treatment that is quick, painless, and noninvasive, HIFU is an excellent option compared to a surgical face lift.
Of course, HIFU isn’t a miracle cure for aging. The procedure is best suited for patients with mild-to-moderate skin laxity, and you may need to have the procedure repeated in one to two years as the natural aging process takes over.
If you’re older with more severe skin sagging and wrinkles, HIFU may not be able to eliminate these skin issues.
