The High-Intensity Focus Ultrasound (HIFU) Facelift treatment is a regenerative, non-surgical facelift treatment that helps not only to lift the skin but also to maintain skin conditions at optimal levels. This makes HIFU Facelifts a good treatment option for those who want to combat weak and slackened supportive fibres under their skin as a result of ageing. HIFU Facelift treatments use ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production by targeting the connective tissues in the face. This results in skin that is tighter and lifted, making HIFU treatments especially effective in getting rid of wrinkles or excess fats on the face even though it is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that does not involve any needles. It also makes the HIFU Facelift treatment a comfortably pain-free experience which is well-suited for those who do not want to undergo intrusive and potentially risky surgical procedures that involve a long downtime for recovery.
The HIFU treatment is particularly effective for smaller, targeted areas on the face and can get rid of saggy cheeks and double chins. They can also be used to improve the skin condition and help to achieve beauty goals on your eye corners, near the eyebrows, and even on your neck. In fact, those who want to reduce or remove skin laxity, fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin on their face would find HIFU treatments beneficial. It also treats other common facial skin issues such as smile lines, frown lines, forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet, in addition to removing double chins and fats on the cheek, all of which can contribute to a face that is more defined, contoured and lifted. All this can be visibly achieved after just a few HIFU treatment sessions.
Despite its effectiveness, HIFU treatments remain extremely safe and low risk, unlike some other invasive surgical procedures. Surgical procedures run a higher risk because they involve needles, injections, and anaesthetics. That also means that there might be some level of pain involved with those surgeries. Long downtime for recovery after the completion of the surgery should also be considered, making them less appealing and suitable for those who want to resume their normal daily activities as soon as possible.
HIFU treatments are non-surgical facelifts that set itself apart from other technologies because they are designed to be more comfortable than other ultrasound therapy devices. HIFU is part of a new generation of non-invasive and non-surgical ultrasound devices that were engineered in Korea. This new generation of treatment makes it more comfortable than the older, outdated technology. Despite its increase in comfort level, HIFU treatments, at their core, are still powered by high-intensity ultrasound that is able to increase the production of micro collagen, ensuring that the treatment will quickly and effectively lift your skin. Hence, HIFU treatments remain a good option for those who want to reduce signs of ageing while restoring firmer, tighter, and healthier skin that looks more youthful.
HIFU treatments are generally not frequently needed due to the nature of the ground-breaking technology. On average, only one 60-minute session every 12 months is required to achieve and maintain positive results, which would be gradually more visible in the weeks and months following a treatment session as the body stimulates more collagen as a result of the treatment. Unlike many other face-lifting treatments, you would not need to book multiple sessions to achieve your beauty goals. As such, HIFU treatments are a fuss-free and convenient way to attain younger and firmer skin, even for those who lead a busy lifestyle.
