What is HIFU?
HIFU HIFU (High frequency focused ultrasound): An aesthetic innovation that uses high energy sound waves to penetrate the tissue to stimulate collagen and elastin formation and reduce accumulated fat underneath the skin. It firms up saggy skin and creates v-shaped face without pain or scar. The results are noticeable right after the procedure.
- Firms up saggy skin and creates v-shaped face.
- Highlights the facial outline for persons with diamond-shaped face or fat accumulation on cheeks
- Lifts up loose skin at the eyebrow end and corrects droopy eyelid. Removes eye bags.
- Removes double chin and excess fat.
- The treatment is not a surgery and requires no recovery time.
HIFU treatment procedure is different from person to person according to their facial skin. First, the dermatologist will assess the facial skin. During the treatment, the patient will feel like they are being snapped with a rubber band. In most cases, the pain is bearable. However, if you are concerned about the pain, the dermatologist may apply local aesthetic and cold gel before the treatment. The HIFU treatment takes around 30 minutes.
Self-care after the treatment
After the HIFU treatment, you can do daily activities as normal without waiting for full recovery. In some cases, the skin may slightly swell which will be relieved in 2 days. HIFU treatment requires no special practice. However, it is recommended to apply skincare cream or stem cell serum and drink lots of water.
The result is worth it
HIFU treatment takes around 30 minutes. But the result is worth it. At least a 30% improvement is noticeable right after the treatment. In 1-3 months, collagen and elastin are re-built, and the full lifting-up results can be seen. The result lasts for around 1 year. Do you need to re-do the treatment? Generally, it is recommended to do the treatment once a year. In some cases, the treatment may be done every 6 months for the best results at all times. The number of sessions depends on the individual’s needs.
