Before and After of High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) Facelift
Aging is a natural part of life and as the years pass all of us notice inevitable changes in our appearance. However, a poor diet and exposure to toxins and chemicals can make us age faster. If you want to reverse the effects of aging and enjoy glowing, youthful skin, you should consider getting a high-intensity focused ultrasound facelift (HIFU).
What is a HIFU facelift?
A HIFU facelift is a revolutionary non-invasive and completely painless technique that uses focused ultrasonic energy to create heat under your skin. The purpose of this heat is to repair damaged skin cells and increase the production of collagen. The ultrasounds also increase cell regrowth and improve skin elasticity.
It’s important to note that the ultrasound used in HIFU is not the same as the ultrasound used in medical imaging.
What are the Benefits of a HIFU facelift?
Compared to other non-invasive and painless treatments, a HIFU facelift gives a very dramatic improvement immediately after the treatment.
HIFU facelifts can help:
- Lift drooping eyelids
- Create a more defined jawline
- Lift the cheeks to minimize a drooping nasolabial fold
- Tighten your skin
- Smooth out wrinkles
While the effects can be seen immediately, it will continue to improve even upto 6 weeks after the treatment.
What Can I Expect During a HIFU Facelift?
When you come to the Superhuman Clinic for a HIFU treatment, one of our health specialists will clean your face and apply a gel over the treatment area. An ultrasound device will then be used to emit short waves into your skin and each session generally lasts around one hour.
The experience isn’t painful but you may experience slight discomfort during and after the treatment. The good news is you don’t have to prepare beforehand, and there is also no recovery time required after the treatment. It can take anywhere from one to five sessions for you to see the results you’re looking for.
Because we are stimulating new collagen and elastin the results are permanent, however keep in mind that “maintenance” treatments may be required 1-2 times a year as we continue to age.
Reduce Signs of Aging with a HIFU Facelift
HIFU facelift is a nonsurgical technique that you can opt for to smooth out your skin and reverse the signs of aging. HIFU is a great alternative to getting surgical procedures as it offers promising results with zero recovery time needed.
