An Innovative Technique in Lifting Your Face by Using Ultrasound Energy to Encourage the Production of Collage, which Results in Firmer Skin
The High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a new cosmetic treatment for skin tightening. The process does not involve any surgery, recovery time, or incision. It is noninvasive to the skin. HIFU offers high safety and results can be seen instantly after the treatment. Although HIFU is suitable for face and neck lifting, it can also be carried out at different parts of the body where the skin becomes saggy, i.e. upper arm
What can HIFU do? How does it work?
HIFU uses focused ultrasound energy to target different layers of skin until it reaches the Superficial Musculo Aponeurotic System (SMAS). The ultrasound energy causes the tissue to shrink rapidly. The skin becomes tighter and firmer. HIFU helps stimulating cells such as the Fibroblasts and stimulates the cells to produce more collagen and elastin. This results in tighter and firmer skin, the pores become smaller, and the skin becomes smoother and brighter. The process lasts for about 20-30 minutes. The patient may experience tightness and mild pain because the ultrasound energy is targeted at the SMAS. However, the patient can continue on with their daily activities as there is no need for recovery and outer layers of the skin are not affected.
Treatment Results.Approximately 10-20% of the results can be seen instantly. Maximum results are noticeable 2-3 months after the treatment.
