HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a non-invasive treatment that uses micro-focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen production, and thus lift and tighten the skin on the chin and neck. It also improves fine lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. HIFU is different from other cosmetic treatments, as it is the only one that uses ultrasound imaging. Accordingly, it allows practitioners to see the layers of the tissue during the treatment and ensure the precise deposit of energy.

1. How does HIFU stimulate collagen production?

Collagen is a natural protein that keeps the skin firm and toned. HIFU generates thermal effect using micro-focused ultrasound; this effect will help produce new collagen.

2. Is HIFU an alternative for a facelift?

Ultherapy is indeed a great alternative for a facelift, namely for those who are not ready to undergo surgery; however, it will not duplicate facelift results.

3. How is HIFU different from laser treatment?

Unlike laser that uses light energy, Ultherapy uses sound energy and can reach deep skin layers.

4. Who is the right candidate for HIFU?

The right candidate for HIFU is someone who has:

  • skin laxity problems
  • loose skin under the neck or the chest
  • fine lines or wrinkles on the chest

5. How many HIFU treatments do I need?

The majority of patients need one treatment; however, some might need more. This depends on the body’s response to the ultrasound.

6. Is HIFU safe?

HIFU is effective and safe. However, some patients may experience redness after the treatment, which usually disappears after a few hours. Other patients may experience swelling or tingling, but these are also temporary.
