Hifu

High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU, or sometimes FUS for Focused UltraSound) is a medical procedure that applies high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to locally heat for a lifting result on the skin. HIFU – High Intensity Focused Ultrasound – uses the same technology as Ultherapy but at a fraction of the price. It is considered the Gold Standard technology for skin tightening.

HIFU is Natural. Non-Invasive. The HIFU procedure is very similar to Ultherapy and has been established to be safe and effective in clinical studies and over 200,000 patient treatments worldwide. Ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years. We only use licensed medical and nursing professions, who have been through in depth training and have the knowledge to make your treatment a success!

HIFU is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure similar to Ulthera therapy which uses focused ultrasound and the face’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, under the chin, and even the décolletage (upper chest area).

With HIFU you will avoid the uncomfortable feeling of the downtime or foreign substances; just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural skin lifting and noticeable skin tightening effect on the outside.

THE BENEFITS OF HIFU

  • Reducing fine to deep wrinkles
  • Under eye troughs, bags and dark circles
  • Skin lifting
  • Tighter, better-fitting skin, including your neck.
  • It’s the lift without the surgery!

 

HOW DOES THE HIFU WORKS?

Before After – HIFU

Unlike lasers, which penetrate the skin from the outside-in, the HIFU procedure by passes the surface of the skin, and delivers targeted energy specifically into the deep, structural tissues and muscles where collagen lives.

By stimulating the deep structural support layers of the skin, a natural, regenerative response is initiated, stimulating the growth of new collagen, which lifts and tightens the skin over time.

Because ultrasound technology actually works non-invasively from the inside-out, results build gradually over 2-3 months, and can continue to improve up to 6 months after the procedure.

An anaesthetic cream is applied to the areas to be treated if needed.

POST TREATMENT CARE

Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.

WHAT TO EXPECT OF HIFU THERAPY

There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature and after, your skin will be firm and tighten.

Patients treated with HIFU still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

The HIFU System is contraindicated for use in patients with:

  • open facial wounds or lesions
  • acne on the face or neck
  • metal stents/implants in the face or neck
  • implantable electrical devices
