Sagging skin around the chin and neck can be a significant concern for many people, particularly during the natural ageing process. If you’re frustrated with your double-chin and looking for non-invasive treatment options, you may have heard of HIFU. HIFU, or High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, is a revolutionary FDA approved cosmetic treatment that offers a non-surgical alternative to a facelift. In this blog post, we’ll explore everything you need to know about HIFU for the chin, and how it can help rejuvenate your appearance and boost your confidence.
What is HIFU at Collagen Restore East Grinstead ?
HIFU is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound technology to safely heat the skin and stimulate collagen production. HIFU for chin treatments target specific areas of the lower face and neck to lift and tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of a double chin, fine lines, and wrinkles. Unlike surgical options, HIFU is quick and painless, and doesn’t require any downtime or recovery time.
How does HIFU work?
During the procedure, a HIFU device is used to send focused waves of ultrasound energy into the tissue below the skin’s surface, heating and stimulating the collagen production. As new collagen begins to form, the skin naturally tightens and lifts, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. Treatments last around 30 minutes and can be performed at a variety of intensity levels and depths based on the individual patient’s needs.
What are the benefits of HIFU Collagen Restore East Grinstead?
Apart from offering a non-surgical alternative to a facelift, HIFU has several benefits for chin and neck rejuvenation. Firstly, there’s no downtime or recovery time following treatment. Unlike surgery, there’s no need to take time off work or avoid physical activity. Secondly, HIFU is safe and non-invasive, requiring no anaesthesia or incisions, and no risk of scarring or infection.
Finally, HIFU results are progressive and long-lasting, with patients often seeing visible improvements in skin elasticity and tightness over a period of weeks to months.
What should I expect during my HIFU treatment?
Before the treatment, your healthcare provider will discuss the areas on your neck and chin that will be targeted with HIFU. They’ll apply a conductive gel to your skin to help the ultrasound device glide more smoothly and comfortably. During the procedure, you may feel a slight warming sensation as the ultrasound energy is absorbed by the skin. Most patients find the sensation tolerable, and some patients even find it relaxing.
After the treatment, you can resume your regular activities immediately, with no need to take time off work or avoid physical activity.
