High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
Are you looking for a way to turn the clock back on your face but don’t want aggressive surgery? HIFU may be the skin rejuvenation treatment ideal for you. It is a non-surgical treatment to tone, lift, and tighten the sagging skin on the face, around the eyes, neck area, and under the chin. It effectively treats the deeper layers of your face. HIFU is comparatively less invasive than its traditional facelift.
Experts at RN Laser & Med Spa in Fort Pierce Florida offer this innovative technique to reduce signs of aging without any incisions necessary for treatment. HIFU is the only FDA-approved treatment for skin lifting.
What is HIFU?
High-intensity focused ultrasound is a non-invasive therapeutic technique that uses non-ionizing ultrasonic waves to heat or ablate tissue. HIFU can be used to increase the flow of blood cells to the skin and help regenerate new cells.
HIFU is the only non-invasive procedure that targets the SMAS layer of the skin, which is the muscular layer of the mid to lower facial area.
How is HIFU Performed?
HIFU involves the precise and careful use of special devices across the targeted areas by an expert. The device sends ultrasonic waves into the skin’s subcutaneous layer, producing heath beneath the superficial layers to stimulate the production of new skin cells. This regeneration works to tighten the skin and lift it resulting in smoother, firmer, and more youthful results.
Usually, HIFU treatment takes only about an hour to perform. However, the time varies depending on the area to be treated and the extent of the procedure for optimal results.
What to Expect After HIFU?
Patients can enjoy visible effects immediately after the procedure but the ultimate lifting takes place over two to three months. Little time is needed for the proteins to be rejuvenated with the new one created by HIFU. This treatment offers minimal downtime to improve the lax skin. You need to consider yearly treatments to fight the age effects.
Who are Ideal Candidates for High-intensity focused ultrasound?
Men and women both who have lax skin without excessive sun damage are ideal candidates for HIFU. Eyes are often the first area to show aging signs with laxity on the eyelids giving a droopier or closed appearance. Tightening of the skin on the forehead will lift the brow which alleviates the hooding and restores a more open and refreshed look. Moreover, patients who want to shrink the skin on the cheeks, under the chin, and along the jawline into a more youthful contour can opt for HIFU.
Younger people are taking a proactive approach as they realize it’s better to slow down the clock instead of turning it back. HIFU complements the other rejuvenation procedures for improved results.
What is the Comparison between HIFU Compare and Laser Skin Tightening?
HIFU addresses the deep foundational skin layers while lasers address the superficial layers of skin. HIFU offers great results when combined with other skin rejuvenation treatments such as brown spot removal, Fraxel, and more for a more youthful appearance. While performing the HIFU, our estheticians can see the skin layers being treated which in turn helps to deliver the energy to them precisely.
