High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) or Ultrasound Therapy is proving a game-changer within the aesthetic industry for its skin lifting and tightening effects and it’s ability to target stubborn pockets of fat. It works by creating thermal clotting within targeted layers of the skin which, in turn, stimulates the natural production of collagen and provides long term and ongoing tightening of the skin. For fat loss HIFU technology targets fat layers below the skin to destroy fat cells permanently. The go-to solution for those wanting to tighten a post-pregnancy stomach, jowl lifting, neck lifting, nasolabial fold and wrinkle reduction, as well as overall skin rejuvenation.
HIFU is a non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound energy for skin-tightening and lifting without the need for surgery. The procedure can be carried out on the face and body to provide rapid, long-term tightening of the skin – a high-demand in the beauty industry.
Treatments will usually last about 30-60 minutes, and because the experience is non-invasive and doesn’t require medical intervention, the patient has no downtime. The procedure is ideal for tightening problem areas on the body to suit a patient’s aesthetic needs, causing only slight redness and minimal downtime.
Using targeted ultrasound energy that stimulates collagen production in specific areas of skin tissue. This lifts and sculpts sagging skin on almost any part of the body. It’s ideal for tightening a post-pregnancy stomach area, smoothing, lifting and contouring the face and neck (reducing the appearance of wrinkles in the process), and to treat wounds.
