Hifu-Non- Surgical Face Lift (Ultrasound Skin Firming) Treatment


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

Mechanism of Action

HIFU is a lifting treatment that heats up the deep layers of your skin. HIFU stands for high intensity focused ultrasound. ... When your skin and muscle layer known as the SMAS are heated up, cells are activated and new collagen and elastin formation takes place.

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.

Here’s what to expect at your appointment:

1.A physician or technician first cleans the target area.

2.They may apply a topical anesthetic cream before starting.

3.The physician or technician then applies an ultrasound gel.

4.The HIFU device is placed against the skin.

5.Using an ultrasound viewer, the physician or technician adjusts the device to the right setting.

6.Ultrasound energy is then delivered to the target area in short pulses for roughly 30 to 90 minutes.

7.The device is removed.

How long will the result last? You may see some initial effect, but the main lifting and tightening will take place over 2-3 months as new collagen is made. This collagen regeneration process continues up to 6 months after the initial treatment.
