HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is non-invasive ultrasound energy generates low levels of heat in the targeted skin. It targets the deep skin layers to helps slow down the development of aging signs and improves skin elasticity on the face, neck, jaw-line and décolleté. Overall, it stimulates the cells for collagen production and tissue rejuvenation. It’s FDA-approved to lift the skin on the face and neck. Common treatment areas include:
- Full face
- Brow and forehead
- Neck (“turkey neck”)
- Stretch marks
How it works
With the HIFU treatment, we are heating small targeted amounts of soft tissue below the surface of the skin to a level where the tissue will contract, and the body will create new collagen. To achieve a significant lifting and tightening effect, the right amount of heat is delivered to the proper depths of tissue without any damage to the surface of the skin.
