HIFU For Face Rejuvenation
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic treatment that targets ageing symptoms and promotes collagen formation. It has recently gained popularity as a safe and effective alternative to standard surgical facelifts. Ultrasound energy is used in HIFU to penetrate deep into the skin layers, encouraging natural regeneration and tightening the skin.
How does HIFU work?
Collagen and elastin are all essential proteins which are responsible for providing the skin with structure, elasticity and firmness. The production of these proteins declines as we age, resulting in sagging and wrinkling. HIFU improves the tone, texture, and overall appearance of the skin by increasing the creation of collagen and elastin.
HIFU employs concentrated ultrasound waves to provide precise quantities of heat to specific parts of the face. The energy enters the skin at different depths, ultimately hitting the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer, which is also targeted in surgical facelifts. This focused energy creates micro-injuries to the targeted tissue, activating the body’s natural healing response and boosting collagen and elastin formation.
This treatment is not only non-invasive and only takes 90 minutes, but you can notice visible benefits in as little as three months. Furthermore, you will not require any anaesthesia and will be able to resume your normal activities once the procedure is completed.
