What is HIFU?
Hifu is a non-surgical treatment that uses HIFU (high-intensity focused ultrasound) technology to tighten and lift facial and body skin. This micro-focused ultrasound treatment can effectively combat signs of aging and troublesome skin laxity to create a youthful appearance on the face and body.
How does the HIFU work?
HIFU effectively treats the superficial and deeper skin layers, as well as the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) with a triple layer lifting effect. The treatment heats up and stimulates existing collagen fibres, causing them to thicken and shorting giving you a long-term tightening and lifting effect.
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound is currently the only non-invasive medical device that allows the deepest penetration of energy, targeting depths of 1.5mm, 3mm and 4.5mm, for skin lifting and tightening.
At this depth, the High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound is able to lighten pigmentation and brighten the skin. The amount of melanin in the skin will reduce by a fair amount.
At 3mm, the heating of skin tissue is targeted mainly at skin tightening. Radiofrequency procedures, like Thermage and the Venus Viva Nanofractional RF, are often used for skin tightening via heating the skin. The HIFU is also able target this depth, where structural collagen is situated, and deliver precise energy to stimulate collagen production.
4.5mm is where the lifting effect takes place. The Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) is usually situated at this depth. This is the layer surgeons tighten when performing a surgical face lift. This means stimulation and tightening of the SMAS layer with the HIFU will provide excellent lifting results.
What is the procedure like?
The Hifu is a comfortable procedure. Patients might feel a mild ache along bony areas, like the jawline. This is due to the ultrasound energy reflecting off the facial contours. Hifu takes approximately 60 minutes and has minimal downtime. Your skin may appear slightly flushed immediately after the treatment, but any redness will subside within a few hours.
Choose the right HIFU
There are only a handful of HSA (Health Science Authority)-approved HIFU procedures that are certified to be operated by trained clinicians. Although many beauty salons also offer ‘HIFU’ procedures, these procedures or machines are not medical grade or HSA-approved for medical use by a trained professional. A HIFU procedure performed at beauty salons might not only yield unsatisfactory results, but could also cause more damage than benefits if performed incorrectly.
The HIFU procedure in our clinic is done with a Second Generation U-One Device and Vmax . TRANQUIL ESSENCE Therapeutic Clinic preference for using this HIFU stems down to its effectiveness, safety and it being the most popular HIFU procedure in the world.
