HIFU- HIGH INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUNDChristina Petrou
HI FU TREATMENT FOR FACE
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a relatively new cosmetic treatment for skin tightening that some consider a noninvasive and painless replacement for face lifts. It uses ultrasound energy to encourage the production of collagen, which results in firmer skin. 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. The damage actually stimulates the cells to produce more collagen — a protein that provides structure to the skin.
The increase in collagen results in a younger looking, tighter, firmer with fewer wrinkles skin. 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.HIFU has many aesthetic benefits, including:
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
No downtime and safe to use
