What You Need To Know About HIFU

HIFU, also known as “High Intensity Focused Ultrasound”, is a treatment that helps tighten, lift and contour the skin and body. This HIFU treatment is 100% non-invasive, and functions by targeting specific, deep areas of the skin. By working within the deep layers, it boosts the production of collagen right at its source. This treatment is highly beneficial because it is done in a quick manner, is very easy to sit through with little to no discomfort, and has no downtime. 

HIFU on the Face 

When you use HIFU on your face, it is acting as a facelift. It will flatten out any wrinkles, tighten the skin and shrink any visible pores. It will also give the face a “V” looking shape, and reduce the look of jowl lines.  

HIFU on the Body 

HIFU energy is used on the body by targeting the fatty layer and destroying the fat cells within it. It is an ideal treatment for things such as: 

  • Arm Flab 
  • Post-Pregnancy Tummy 
  • Thighs 

In addition to this, it can even tighten the skin on the arms and knees, helping give your skin an even looking texture.  

Do These Treatments Hurt? 

HIFU will often be performed in short intervals, meaning it is very comfortable for the person getting it. Some people describe it as small electric pulses, or that of a prickly/tingly sensation. It is not completely pain free, but it is entirely tolerable. Keep in mind it will most likely feel different depending on which part of the body you are treating.
