A high intensity focused ultrasound facial, also known as HIFU for short, is a non-invasive treatment that is used to tighten and lift the facial area. The treatment is becoming increasingly popular for its instant ability to transform the face. But how does it work? Do the results last forever? Is it safe? Keep reading to find out the answers to all of these questions and more!
HIFU is the closest you can get to a true surgical face-lift without actually having surgery. The treatment uses ultrasound technology to generate heat deep within the skin and damage skin cells as a result. This causes a natural healing response where the body produces new collagen to aid in cell regrowth. Since collagen is responsible for our skin’s structure and elasticity, this leads to the production of new, tighter skin. Because all of this is happening in the upper dermis and lower dermis layers of the skin, there is absolutely no damage to the skin’s surface, and you will not be left with any scarring or risk of infections.
The best part about HIFU is that you can see 20% of the results immediately after your treatment! You will see the tightening effects of the treatment continue for the next 3-6 months but don’t worry – there is no downtime, and you can continue on with your routines as normal. The treatment can be performed on the face, neck, and décolletage areas, helping sagging skin become tighter and firmer. The HIFU method does not require any creams, artificial fillers, or toxins – it solely relies on the body’s natural healing process so you can feel confident in the fact that you will be safe from harm. In just one HIFU treatment, you will see results. Of course, every client has different skin so those with more severe skin issues may require more treatments to see greater results but regardless, you will see them!
