HIFU (A Korean Technology)
HIFU using focusing ultrasound waves on a preset depth of the facial tissue, most notably the Superficial Musculo Aponeurotic System (SMAS). This layer is clinically relevant because surgical facelifts also focus on this particular facial layer. Treats the deep layers of skin tissue without disturbing the surface of the skin, using time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin on the face, neck, brow, and body parts, naturally in a non-invasive procedure. It involves focused ultrasound with NO surgery.
The controlled heat injury produces contraction and collagen remodeling during the healing phase, and this causes tightening and lifting effect of the treatment area as a result. The precision also gets excellent facial sculpting and lifting results especially for patients with more bulk in their cheeks and jowls.
*The Koreans have taken the HIFU technology and made some improvements to American Ultherapy, such as: less discomfort during the procedure, no numbing needed even for sensitive patients; it also allows us to use specific modes that have no effect on fat loss, so that we do not further reduce the volume in the face.
Good for: Patients who have lost significant volume in the face or body because of aging. Patients with lower-than-average pain thresholds.
- Builds New Collagen
- The procedure targets the ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment induces a natural process, known as ‘neocollagenesis’ (natural component of wound re-pair in human body), to produce fresh, new collagen and create instantly noticeable results.
- No needles, no toxins, no cutting, and no disruption to the surface of the skin. Your skin might appear flushed at first, but this redness should disappear within a few hours.
- Natural & Fast Results
- The best results appear after 4-6 weeks as the new collagen build up to lift and tighten the skin.
- Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment and all patients can get back to their normal daily routine right away. Even just one HIFU treatment noticeably reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and kickstarts collagen production.
