A relatively recent procedure called high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is used to tighten skin. Firmer skin is the result of increased collagen formation, which is stimulated by ultrasonic energy.

A skin-tightening facial, or HIFU, what is it?

A hyper-intense facial, as the name implies, tightens skin by using ultrasonic energy; this makes the procedure relatively pleasant and non-invasive. You will have the firmer, tighter skin you have always wanted as a result of the energy employed to promote collagen formation.

You can anticipate firmer, tighter skin with a noticeable reduction in wrinkles and fine lines.

While some patients experience improvements right away, the overall lifting and toning effects take two to three months to manifest. This is because worn-out collagen requires time to be replaced by new collagen. You should anticipate positive outcomes for up to six months following the treatment as this process progresses.

The outcomes may last for more than a year. It may endure longer, depending on how well your skin is doing. For this reason, in order to slow down the ageing process, it is advisable to schedule touch-up sessions. You will have some moderate swelling and redness right after the facial, but these side effects will go away in a few hours.

Before beginning HIFU facial rejuvenation, doctors typically clean the targeted facial area and apply a gel. The ultrasonic waves are then briefly released by a handheld instrument. 30 to 90 minutes are usually allotted for each session.

What are the benefits?

There are practically endless benefits to an HIFU facial for your skin. It has become extremely popular in the past several years. The benefits are as follows:

  • Make the skin smoother.
  • Pull in your décolletage.
  • Improve the definition of the jawline.
  • Raise your eyebrows, cheeks, and eyelids.
  • Often referred to as “turkey neck,” tighten the drooping skin around the neck.
  • Diminish wrinkles

It should be noted that those with more severe cases of sagging skin will not benefit from an HIFU facial. Therefore, for this procedure to be appropriate for you, you should have moderate skin laxity. Sagging skin and a depressed brow line are the first indications of ageing skin. Therefore, those with mild to moderate skin laxity who are in their 30s or slightly older would make suitable candidates.

How does it work?

With careful targeting, HIFU raises the temperature of adipose tissues to 55–60 degrees Celsius, which kills fat cells. The deeper fat layer is targeted with a concentrated beam, and the heat energy from this radiation induces the surrounding collagen to contract, ultimately tightening the skin. With its contact cooling feature, HIFU shields the epidermis from heat damage while also providing patients with an extremely comfortable therapy. Triglycerides are released from HIFU fat cells’ broken membranes and enter fluid cells, which are then carried to the liver by lymphatic networks and digested by the body using its own natural processes. Patients see noticeable fat reduction right away following treatment, and outcomes really take off in the next two to four weeks.
