HIFU – ULTHERA

Face lifting and skin tightening HIFU Treatment

A noninvasive and painless alternative for face lifts

HIFU SKIN TIGHTENING
HIFU, also known as High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is a non-surgical procedure that directly delivers  heat energy to the skin and subcutaneous tissue that will stimulate and renew the skin’s collagen, and improve its texture, and reduce sagging. It achieves the exact results of a face or body lift without invasive surgery, or injections. One of the major benefits of this procedure is that it requires no downtime, so you can get back to your normal life as soon as possible. The procedure can be applied to the face, as well as the entire body, and it works well for people of all skin tones.

HIFU FAT REMOVAL
HIFU fat removal includes applying a high intensity focused ultrasound, generating focused energy, and going deeper to break cellulite.  This is a long-lasting, invasive treatment to reduce fat in the abdomen and thigh areas. The high intensity focused ultrasound targets fat at 13 mm, heats up the fat tissue, combines high energy and good penetration to resolve the fat. The triglycerides and fatty acids excrete by the process of metabolism, and the vessels and nerves will not be damaged.

KEY BENEFITS

HIFU – A noninvasive and painless alternative for face lifts

HIFU 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 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 has many aesthetic benefits, including:

  • wrinkle reduction
  • 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

PROCEDURE

There’s no special preparation needed before having an HIFU procedure. You should remove all makeup and skin care products from the target area before treatment.

Here’s what to expect at your appointment:

  • A physician or technician first cleans the target area.
  • They may apply a topical anesthetic cream before starting.
  • The physician or technician then applies an ultrasound gel.
  • The HIFU device is placed against the skin.
  • Using an ultrasound viewer, the physician or technician adjusts the device to the right setting.
  • Ultrasound energy is then delivered to the target area in short pulses for roughly 30 to 90 minutes.
  • The device is removed.
  • If additional treatments are needed, you will schedule the next treatment.
