If you’ve never heard of HIFU facial treatment before, prepare to be amazed! It doesn’t involve any surgery or operations, yet it can provide incredible results. Think it sounds too good to be true? We think not! Read on to learn more about what HIFU therapy is, its benefits, and who it’s suitable for.
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a cosmetic treatment that’s usually used for skin tightening. It has been hailed as the new way to do facelifts, as it’s less invasive and much less painful. HIFU facial treatment employs ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen, which helps skin look more youthful, plumper and firmer.
HIFU harnesses ultrasound energy to target and heat up areas of skin tissue just below the surface. At a certain temperature, the heated skin cells begin to experience damage. This stimulates the production of collagen that will improve the look of your skin. As collagen is stimulated, your complexion will appear firmer, with wrinkles and fine lines much less noticeable.
HIFU therapy is most effective on people over 30 years old with mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles. If the person being treated has experienced sun damage or has a lot of loose skin, they may require several sessions of HIFU therapy.
HIFU facial treatment is not recommended for people who have infections, open skin lesions, severe or cystic acne, or metal implants in the face.
People commonly report a slight discomfort such as a prickly sensation during the treatment session. The sensation felt may depend on your personal pain threshold. However, it can be easily managed before the session with some painkillers which your treating doctor can discuss with you prior to your treatment.
If there’s any treatment that can revolutionise your skin, it’s HIFU therapy. Like a facelift but without the pain and months of recovery, beautiful youthful skin is just a HIFU facial away. Call Urban Skin Clinic today on 0435 506 978 to book a session.
