High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is what HIFU stands for in its full name. It is a highly specialized kind of ultrasonic therapy that may provide excellent results when used in place of surgical facelift procedures. The process does not include any risky or intrusive procedures at all.
HIFU, like cosmetic surgery, focuses on the deeper layers of the skin to treat it. It is an excellent choice for those who want to avoid undergoing a surgical operation or who want to prolong the results of cosmetic surgery.
There is just one therapy that should be used. Stimulating the deeper structural layers of the skin results in a natural lifting of the appearance of the face. Initiation of a natural and regenerative reaction leads to the stimulation of the creation of new collagen and improved circulation, both of which contribute to the gradual lifting and tightening of the skin. The therapy will have an effect that is felt gradually over the course of two to three months, and the outcomes will continue to become better up to six months following the procedure.
After the treatment is complete, you are free to instantly continue your previous activities. There is no downtime, and there are no obligations after the operation.
As a consequence of the therapy, the patient’s skin becomes more taut, and the appearance of fine and deep wrinkles around the eyes, as well as dark circles, the forehead, the lips, and the neck, is significantly improved.
The suppleness of the skin of the face, neck, jawline, and décolleté may be improved by using HIFU, which also helps slow down the development of indications of aging.
During the HIFU process, you can feel some pain for a short period of time. A few individuals have described it as feeling like they are being pricked lightly by a mild electric current.
Prior to receiving therapy, your physician may recommend that you take acetaminophen (Tylenol) or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicine (NSAID), such as ibuprofen (Advil), in order to reduce the likelihood of experiencing discomfort.
In the immediate aftermath of the treatment, you may notice some moderate redness or swelling, both of which will progressively go away over the course of the next few hours.
