Ultrasound technology

Works on all skin types. A HIFU facial uses ultrasound to create heat at a deep level in the skin. This heat damages targeted skin cells, causing the body to try to repair them. To do this, the body produces collagen to aid in cell regrowth. Collagen is a substance in the skin that gives it structure and elasticity.

According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery; nonsurgical ultrasound treatments such as HIFU can:

  • tighten the skin on the neck

  • reduce the appearance of jowls

  • lift drooping eyelids or eyebrows

  • smooth wrinkles on the face

  • smooth and tighten chest skin

The type of ultrasound that this procedure uses is different than the ultrasound that doctors use for medical imaging. HIFU uses high energy waves to target specific areas of the body.

Specialists also use HIFU to treat tumors in much longer, more intense sessions that can last for up to 3 hours on an MRI scanner.

 

Procedure

Esthetician usually begin HIFU facial rejuvenation by cleaning the chosen area of the face and applying a gel. Then, they use a handheld device that emits the ultrasound waves in short bursts. Each session typically lasts 30-90 minutes 

Some people report mild discomfort during the treatment, and some have pain afterward. Esthetician may apply a local anesthetic before the procedure to help prevent this pain. 

Unlike other cosmetic procedures, including laser hair removal, HIFU facials do not require any preparation. When a session is over, there is also no recovery time, which means that people can get on with their daily activities after receiving HIFU treatment.

People may require between one and six sessions, depending on the results they want to achieve.
