What is HIFU Treatment?
HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, an advanced cosmetic technology that significantly tightens and lifts several areas of the face and body.
It also reduces signs of aging and improves the tone of the skin in a single session.
How Does HIFU Treatment Work?
HIFU device targets the skin layers below the surface with focused beams of ultrasound energy. The ultrasound energy immediately heats this layer. When the target cells reach a specific temperature, they experience cellular damage.
Cellular damage encourages collagen production, and collagen is responsible for maintaining the skin’s natural structure. As a result, the skin becomes tighter and younger because of an increased level of collagen showing remarkable improvements twelve weeks past the treatment.
The HIFU facelift is a long-lasting, non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound energy to tighten and lift the skin.
According to a trusted source, HIFU uses ultrasound waves, which are the same waves used in sonography. Using HIFU at 1 to 3 MHz, focal peak intensities of 5000 to 20,000 W/cm, encourages the production of Collagens fibers through the exploitation of thermal mechanism for the heating of tissues as well as mechanical bioeffect energy for cavitation.
HIFU is a powerful non-invasive procedure that uses the latest ultrasound technology to tauten loose cheeks. It achieves this by using 10Hz velocity ultrasound, which stimulates collagen and triggers dermal collagen fiber regeneration. The HIFU facelift focuses on all layers of the skin from the epidermis through to the SMAS layer.
