What is HIFU? 

Book Now 

A HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. It has recently been growing in popularity due to the increased demand for achieving significant non-invasive skin lifting and tightening. The HIFU also helps with reducing the appearance of excess fats on areas such as the jowls, double chin and cheeks.

HIFU utilises ultrasound energy to tighten the skin and reduce unwanted facial fats in certain areas.

 


Ultrasound is an energy modality that focuses and penetrates deep into the skin layers, causing thermal (heat) coagulation.

The ultrasound used in HIFUs is similar to ultrasound scans in medical clinics or hospitals. However, instead of scanning a broad area, ultrasound energy in HIFU focuses and converges onto a small focal point in the skin.

This results in increased temperatures on the focal point, creating tissue coagulation to stimulate collagen production and targeted fat reduction.

There is no damage to the surrounding skin or tissue except only at the focal point.

As a result, HIFUs are able to target deep skin layers to cause tightening and lift the face without needles or surgery.

 

Here’s an important point to note.

Best results are at 12 weeks, as collagen production and tightening takes time.

Before your treatment:  

Exposure to the sun burns the skin and sunburned or (recently) tanned skin cannot be treated with HIFU.

Also, all chemicals which irritate the skin should be avoided as this may prevent treatment.

We also want you to know that you should avoid taking antibiotics if you are considering taking the HIFU skin treatment.

This is because some antibiotics might make you become light sensitive.

The implication is that your treatment will have to be postponed for two weeks after the completion of antibiotics treatment. That said, here are some precautions to be taken before the HIFU treatment proper.

The HIFU facelift treatment process is considered to be relatively safe. However, people who want to undergo HIFU treatment must not have a history of cold sore or fever before treatment.

Cold sores will impair the treatment process. The HIFU treatment cannot also be carried out while they have a fever.

In such cases, the treatment can only be done after recovery from either the cold sore or the fever.

You want to make sure that you are free from any of these health issues at least the day before the HIFU treatment.

It is important that on the day of the treatment, all forms of make-up and moisturizers should be avoided.

So let's assume that you are healthy and have no histories that might impair the HIFU treatment process, it is advisable that you arrive early.

HIFU Facelift Aftercare:

What to do before and after treatment

It is important that on the day of the treatment, all forms of make-up and moisturizers should be avoided. 

This will keep you relaxed and will kill any form of anxiety. You might wonder why anxiety is an issue since HIFU facelift treatment is painless and non-invasive.

Take A Break From Alcohol

Stop giving your liver excess work. Drinking alcohol should be avoided after the treatment.

Alcohol makes your liver to do extra work. After the treatment procedure, your liver will be tasked with breaking down the deactivated fat.

Consuming alcohol means that the liver now has to break down alcohol in addition to the deactivated fat.

Besides the fact that alcohol overworks your liver, it also reduces the density of your blood.

The implications of less dense blood are that excessive bleeding may occur since blood clotting will be a challenge.

Avoid drinking alcohol at all costs.

Don't Scratch Your Skin!

At this time, your skin will be very sensitive, and scratching it puts you at the risk of skin damage.

If you have scars, you are also advised to allow them to fall off naturally.

Trying to remove them may lead to a large wound, which may lead to infection.

Avoid scratching your skin after you must have had your treatment done.

 

Drink More Water

Water must come first before other beverages that you consume.

Water will also help in your recovery by increasing the rate at which collagen is produced in the body.

It's in your best interest to keep your body hydrated, so drink as much water as possible.
