HIFU: Why It’s a Great Choice to Achieve That Youthful Glow

Botox, fillers, lasers, face and neck lifts are expensive and often painful procedures that also include downtime. HIFU non-surgical facelifts, on the other hand, offer a long-term solution to ageing skin on the face and neck, which can provide better results for just a fraction of the cost.

What is HIFU?

HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. It is a medical device that uses focused ultrasound waves directed at skin, fat and muscle located below the dermis. The ultrasound waves penetrate the deep dermis, causing the fat cells to create suction and also bringing the tissue closer together. This process stimulates cellular activity, helps remove toxins and waste products and stimulates skin renewal. 

HIFU addresses only the targeted area, so it can deliver the perfect amount of stimulation required, without damaging surrounding healthy tissue.

What Are the Benefits of HIFU Facelift?

The benefits of HIFU include:

  • Faster Recovery
  • No Downtime
  • No Pain
  • No Surgical Scars
  • No Anesthesia
  • FDA-Approved
  • Safe and Effective
  • Non-Invasive

What Causes Facial Sagging and What Can Be Done About It?

As we age, the collagen in our skin begins to break down, and our skin begins to lose its elasticity. Collagen gives our skin its elasticity and helps it stay firm and youthful. Fat pads underneath the skin begin to diminish as we age, and the skin starts to lose its shape.

This is why many people look tired and older than they actually are. Sagging skin begins to pull down on the underlying muscles, causing them to sag as well. It is, however, possible to reverse this process with a non-surgical facelift.

Areas on the face that tend to sag as we age include the cheeks, jawline, chin and neck. If any of these areas of your face are beginning to sag, you may want to consider a non-surgical facelift.

Who’s a Candidate for HIFU?

HIFU is a great procedure for those looking for a non-surgical facelift and who want to feel better about the way they look. It is also a great procedure for those who do not have the time and money needed for invasive and costly procedures.

How to Prepare for a HIFU Treatment?

Before going in for your HIFU treatment, make sure you’re not on any medications that could interfere with the treatment. Make sure you have no makeup and avoid sun exposure as much as possible. Moreover, stop using any skin products, such as glycolic/salicylic acids, benzoyl peroxide, retinol products such as Retin A, Tazorac, Triluma, Differin and Vitamin C on the area that will be treated.
