What is it?
HIFU (also known as High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a technique of skin tightening and lifting using focused ultrasound pulses that penetrate deep into the dermal layer of the skin. These high energy pulses cause a tightening of existing collagen bundles and also stimulate new collagen formation. This treatment is commonly known as a non-surgical facelift.
HIFU is a new-generation skin tightening treatment that is rapidly gaining in popularity as it is non-invasive and there is no downtime. HIFU is based on the same technology as Ulthera (Ultherapy) which is considered the gold standard in skin tightening treatments on the face and neck and is a favourite of Hollywood celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Madonna, and Kim Kardashian. The new-generation HIFU is much less painful and less expensive than previous treatments with the same technology.
