The use of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound(HIFU) is a growing trend amongst those that are looking to acquire a slimmer and more contoured appearance in focused areas such as waist line, thighs, arms, and even face.
How does HIFU facelift work?
The HIFU treatment works by penetrating the skin with ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in the deep dermal and subdermal levels, resulting in micro injury to that tissue. As the tissue heals, it increases collagen. The HIFU facelift is the perfect alternative if you don’t want surgery. It also breaks down fat deposits which are then metabolized by your body for focused spot fat reduction.
Is HIFU dangerous?
HIFU is considered a safe, effective, and noninvasive procedure for tightening the skin on your body and face. Its advantages over a surgical face lift are hard to deny. There are no incisions, no scarring, and no required rest or recovery time. HIFU is also far less expensive than a face lift.
Can HIFU cause fat loss?
HIFU is ideal for sculpting larger areas, and cannot shift stubborn pockets of fat. HIFU is not a weight loss treatment, and does not replace the benefits of proper diet and exercise. It does not treat obesity. It can only reduce the volume of subcutaneous adipose tissue or cellulite.
