HIFU is High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) directed towards the tissues generates heat resulting in skin retraction. This skin retraction in different layers of the skin, superficial to deep, helps tighten the skin in the area treated.
A HIFU session usually lasts between 40 minutes and an hour.
For this treatment, it is possible to administer a mild local anesthetic for greater comfort as it can be quite unpleasant. A sensation of heat is normal and a mild burning sensation is possible.
After HIFU treatment
After a session, mild edema (swelling) in the areas treated is possible but there is no social downtime. Routine activities can be resumed immediately.
The skin is tightened without surgery, fine lines are improved, and the facial contours resculpted.
Of course the results are not the same as with a neck and face lift but the skin is tightened.
The results are not immediately visible, you will have to wait two to three months to see the final result and often a single session is enough. Depending on the quality of your skin, 1 to 3 sessions will be necessary to obtain a good result.
Combine HIFU with radiofrequency
Combined with HIFU, radiofrequency optimizes the result of the treatment by increasing the tightening of the skin. The sessions are also carried out at the practice 3 weeks apart. A total of 5 to 6 radiofrequency sessions are often necessary to obtain a good result. Combining HIFU and radiofrequency helps obtain satisfactory tightening of the skin if it is still toned enough.
