High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses ultrasound energy to encourage the production of collagen, which results in firmer skin.
HIFU was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2009 for brow lifts and the technology was also cleared by the FDA in 2014 to improve lines and wrinkles of the upper chest and neckline (décolletage). The procedure is also used for overall facial rejuvenation, lifting, tightening, and body contouring.
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, the cells in the targeted area reach a certain temperature, experiencing "cellular damage" ~ this process actually stimulates the cells to produce more collagen - a protein that provides structure to the skin.
The increase in collagen results in tighter, firmer skinwith 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.
Benefits of High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
HIFU has many aesthetic benefits, including:
tightening sagging skin on the neck and jowls (sometimes called turkey neck)
lifting the cheeks, eyebrows, and eyelids
enhancing jawline definition
tightening of the décolletage
smoothing the skin
What does this HIFU device feels like ?
It's described as tiny electric pulses or light prickly sensation, but you will not experience discomfort with this home use beauty device.
No special preparation is required before having this HIFU Facial ~ just remove all makeup, skin care products and clean your skin on the target area before treatment.
HIFU is considered a safe, effective, quick, painless and non-invasive procedure for tightening the facial skin. And the beauty of this home device enables you to have frequent treatments at the comfort of your home, at a fraction of cost at the salons or clinics.
HIFU isn’t a miracle cure for aging. Generally, the procedure works best on people older than 30 with mild-to-moderate skin laxity.
HIFU may not work as well for people with more severe cases of sagging skin, such as older people with more extensive photo-aging, severe skin laxity, or very saggy skin on the neck ~ HIFU may not be able to eliminate these skin issues.
