Cheeks that have lost their firmness over time can lead to an aged appearance. If you want a rejuvenated look but don’t want to go under the knife, HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) non-surgical FDA approved treatment is an excellent option. HIFU makes use of the power of ultrasound to lift, tone and tighten the skin, providing long-lasting results in just a single session. This blog post aims to help people understand how this non-invasive treatment works and its benefits compared to traditional facelift surgery.
How does HIFU work?
HIFU is a non-surgical procedure in Desborough that uses focused ultrasound waves to heat up the deep layers of the skin, helping to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a protein that is responsible for skin elasticity, and as we age, its production slows down. By stimulating collagen production, HIFU can help improve skin elasticity and firmness. During the treatment session, your practitioner will move an applicator over the treatment area, delivering ultrasound waves to the targeted area. There is minimal discomfort during the treatment, and most patients find the treatment relaxing.
What are the benefits of HIFU?
HIFU treatment is a popular choice for those looking to improve skin laxity and firmness in the cheeks area without surgery. The non-invasive nature of HIFU means no downtime, and you can go back to your daily routine immediately post-treatment. The results can take a few weeks to become visible, with maximum benefits achieved around three months post-treatment. The tightening effect can last for up to two years, and additional treatments can be performed to maintain the results. HIFU treatment is a safe and effective choice for those not ready for surgery.
How does it compare to traditional facelift surgery?
HIFU treatment is a non-surgical alternative to traditional facelift surgery. While facelift surgery involves the removal of excess skin and tightening of facial tissues, HIFU can achieve similar results without the need for incisions or general anaesthesia. Facelift surgery often requires a significant recovery period and carries risks such as infection and bleeding. HIFU treatment, on the other hand, is a safe and quick procedure, with minimal side effects.
Who is a good candidate for HIFU?
HIFU treatment is a good option for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity in the cheeks area. If you have severe skin sagging, you may need to consider traditional facelift surgery. Your practitioner will assess your suitability for HIFU treatment during your consultation, and recommend alternative treatments if necessary.
