High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive therapeutic technique that uses non-ionizing ultrasonic waves to heat tissue. HIFU therapy can be used to increase the flow of blood or lymph, or to destroy tissue, such as tumors, through a number of mechanisms. HIFU therapy can be used to treat a range of disorders and as of 2015 is at various stages of development and commercialization.
The Ultrasound Therapy procedure stimulates collagen production via a targeted input of ultrasound energy into the deep tissue layers of the skin. This warms the tissue, which in turn triggers a natural skin response that initiates a regenerative process through the production of neo-collagen. A single treatment takes between 30 minutes and 2.5 hours, depending on the area to be treated. Generally, excellent results can be achieved after just one HIFU treatment. An additional treatment may be carried out no earlier than 8-12 months after the first. In order to promote collagen growth and regeneration.
How does it work?
The ultrasound probe is evenly moved over the treatment areas in order to allow the high intensity focused ultrasound waves to reach the underlying connective tissue and generate the desired skin-tightening effects. The overlying skin layers remain unaffected, which means the lifting can be carried out gently and without a trace.
This gentle form of lifting can be used on the entire face to counteract sagging skin. The following areas are ideal for treatment: the neck region, chin, cheeks and eyebrow area. During a session, an individual area can be treated or all areas can be treated at once.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY?
Generally, excellent results can be achieved after just one HIFU treatment. An additional treatment may be carried out no earlier than 8-12 months after the first. In order to promote collagen growth and regeneration, we recommended the use of special cosmetics. We’re happy to advise you regarding the appropriate products.
