Ultrasound Skin Tightening (HIFU)
One of the first indicators of ageing is the loosening or sagging of skin. High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a mechanism by which we use the power of sound to naturally stimulate and tighten your skin.
HIFU is non-invasive therapeutic method which uses ultrasonic waves to heat the tissue. It delivers heat below the surface of skin to stimulate the body’s natural renewal of existing collagen and generation of new collagen which is responsible for keeping the skin tight.
A thorough consultation with the doctor is done to determine if the procedure is the correct procedure for you and what areas need to be treated are identified. Following the same the areas to be treated are marked and a cooling, hydrating gel is applied. Based on the area being treated the doctor determines the intensity of treatment and uses a probe to deliver ultrasound waves into the skin.
The procedure is safe with no down time. During the procedure the patient experiences some heat in the lower layers of skin. Post treatment, some minor discomfort may persist in the treated area for a few hours to few days. Post procedure care is minimum with primary focus on reduction in sun exposure.
It is important to understand that this is a medical procedure and results will vary from individual to individual based on age, diet, lifestyle, individual’s constitution and the exact condition an individual is suffering from.
HIFU treatment results in face, neck, brow lifting, tightening and firming of the skin.
Frequency of Treatment:
To maintain results treatments are recommended 6 months apart. However the final decision on the same is done by the doctor based on the results achieved and can extended to 1 year.
