HIFU Skin Treatments

Frequently Asked Questions about HIFU Face Skin Treatments

What is HIFU Face Skin Treatments?

HIFU is a revolutionary alternative to a cosmetic facelift. HIFU is a non – invasive skin tightening and lifting treatment of the face and neck. HIFU uses high intensity focused ultrasound to effectively target sagging and loose skin. After just one treatment more lifted, firmer and youthful skin can be achieved without the need for plastic surgery. The results after HIFU treatment are long lasting with no downtime.

What can be treated?

HIFU is used to lift and tighten:

Upper and Lower Face

We normally recommend 1 HIFU treatment once a year for the best results. HIFU treatment is suitable for people aged 30+.

What happens during HIFU Face Skin Treatments?

During the treatment you may experience slight discomfort. Some people describe it as tiny electric pulses or a light prickly sensation. HIFU stimulates collagen regrowth by focusing ultrasound at the selective depths below the skin. Clients may witness some initial results, but lifting and firming will take place over 3 – 4 months, as collagen is renewed and replaced with new, stronger collagen. Continuous improvement after HIFU Face Skin Treatments can appear for up to 9 months.

What can be expected after treatment?

Immediately after HIFU Skin Treatments, you may experience mild redness or swelling, which will gradually subside over the next few hours.

What does HIFU stand for?

The name of the procedure is an abbreviation that stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. A HIFU facial is a non-invasive alternative to the traditional surgical facelift and it’s beneficial for people that struggle with sagging skin, lines and wrinkles, or affected skin texture.

Is a HIFU facelift an invasive treatment?

The HIFU procedure is a non-surgical facelifting procedure, that involves minimal risks while offering you a toned, fresh and younger look. It uses ultrasound energy to tighten the skin and improve your skin tone. It does not involve any surgical treatment or intervention.

What are the side effects of a HIFU procedure?

You might experience mild swelling and redness in the area treated, as well as a local tingling sensation. Patients have reported feeling their skin is tighter or itchy, but all these effects will reside after a short period after the facelifting procedure. The safety of the patient is always a priority and the HIFU facial is an excellent and comfortable alternative to surgical facelifts. 

Who can get a HIFU facelift?

The procedure is recommended for both men and women older than 30 years. The HIFU facial works best for patients that are struggling with sagging skin, low collagen production, and mild to moderate wrinkles.

How long after the HIFU facelift will I see the effect of the procedure?

Some patients have reported feeling smoother and firmer skin right after the procedure, but the HIFU facial can help you achieve a younger, rejuvenated look. The procedure is highly effective and you will start to notice an improved look over the course of 3 to 4 months after the HIFU session. As collagen production is encouraged and new collagen is replacing the old one, you will be able to observe a continuous improvement of your skin months after treatment. The procedure is literally helping you look younger every day.

How long does the effect of a HIFU facial last?

The result of the procedure is long-lasting and can have a lifting, tightening, and rejuvenating effect for up to 2 years. We generally recommend a session of HIFU facial per year, to help you maintain your natural-looking skin texture.

What is the recovery time after a HIFU facelift?

There is no downtime after you get a HIFU facial procedure. You can continue your usual routine with no need to slow down for recovery. The only reported discomfort is minor redness, swelling, or tingling, but the procedure does not require you to interrupt your day to recover.

Most patients have noticed improvements as soon as immediately after the procedure, but you can observe the best results after a period of 3-4 months.

Can a HIFU facelift help with sagging jawline skin?

If you’re concerned about the double chin effect, the HIFU facelift can help you achieve a more defined jawline too. The ultrasound stimulation helps tighten the skin and induces an intense production of new collagen that will make your face skin look tighter and sculpted, even in the jawline area. It is a safe and amazing option for jawline cosmetic surgery.

How does HIFU facial help with wrinkles?

If you wish to get rid of forehead lines or wrinkles, the HIFU facial is a non-invasive botox injection alternative. The ultrasound waves energy causes the tissue to tighten and improves the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and even deep lines around the face. The procedure relies on collagen production, thus ensuring both a natural-looking effect and also long-lasting improvements in the area treated. You can see the results in a short period of time after the HIFU procedure.

Can I get a HIFU facial at your clinic?

Absolutely! At Medical Cosmetics we strive to offer the most efficient aesthetic procedures to our patients. To find out if a HIFU facelift is the best option for you, you can book an initial consultation with our professionals.

Is HIFU technology affecting the skin structure?

The skin structure and tissues underneath are not affected by the HIFU procedure. The purpose and target of the ultrasound treatment are to reach 3 different levels below the skin, thus helping with the stimulation of new collagen production. Although your skin might look red or swollen after the HIFU facial, you will not experience bruising, bleeding or side effects of injection sites, as you would in the case of an invasive or surgical facelift.
