High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound or HIFU Facelift is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment to tighten and lift the skin using ultrasound energy.
HIFU is mostly used in the treatments of Tumors but some Korean doctors did a test on about 20 Korean patients including 18 women and 2 men which resulted in the high-spectrum use of HIFU for facelifts as a non-invasive process.
HIFU goes deep inside the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound at the depths and temperature to incite collagen growth.
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) delivers heat energy directly to the subcutaneous tissue that can stimulate and renew the skin collagen production. And hence it improves the texture and reduces sagging and dropping of skin. The process of HIFU accomplishes the results of a facelift without any invasive surgery or injections; an added bonus of this procedure is that there is no downtime.
HIFU process is also highly effective for acne and scar removal in which the ultrasound heat targets the structural tissues and muscles to increase the collagen production. It creates a space wound which speeds up the healing process. Once healed, acne scars will disappear.
Hifu is also referred to as non-surgical facelift, non-invasive facelift, the lunchtime facelift, ultrasound facelift and instant facelift. It’s a great treatment for people looking to lift and tighten areas such as the face, neck and upper chest, without getting into any kind of surgery.
How does HIFU Therapy help in Facelifting?
HIFU deposits focused ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin to contract the facial layer as well as stimulate the body’s creation of new collagen. As a result, the skin will actually begin to lift and tone over the course of 60-90 days.
What is Collagen? What does it do? How it stimulates the production of Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant natural protein in the human body. The whole distribution of collagen in the skin in 75% and it’s 90% in the bones. When the human body ages it naturally reduces the production of collagen, which also results in the first sign of aging.
Collagen is the protein which helps the skin and the hair to have the youthfulness by keeping it firmed, toned and elastic. Collagen also helps in lower cellulite stretch marks to keep the skin its elasticity.
As we age, collagen loses its elasticity and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. HIFU starts a repair process that produces fresh, new collagen which helps in lifting and toning the skin.
