HIFU (high-intensity focused ultrasound) can be used wherever skin starts to sag or lose suppleness or elasticity. For the face, this is typically under the chin, around the jawline & eyes, and under the brows is commonly used to reduce wrinkles, crows feet. On the body, it can be used for lax skin on the arms, inner thighs, and abdomen.
HIFU acts to tighten the dermis, and promotes new sub-dermal collagen formation. The treatment uses concentrated beams of ultrasound energy to rejuvenate the skin over the precisely targeted areas.
It is a painless non-surgical cosmetic procedure, with only a downtime lasting the procedure duration. One can return to their normal activities immediately after a session and good quality makeup can be applied starting the following day.
