HOW DOES IT
WORK?

It delivers high intensity focused ultrasound waves into the deepest layers of the skin, targeting superficial muscular aponeutoric system (SMAS), without damaging the skin tissue and surface. The ultrasound waves heat the targeted tissue layers to a certain temperature thereby stimulating collagen production as the skin regenerates. This will give you a firmer and healthier looking skin, as well as a slimmer face.

What is the

aftercare?

Routine activities can be resumed immediately after. There is no or minimal downtime with transient mild redness or swelling.

Makeup can be applied immediately post-treatment through certain products and procedures like waxing may be used after 3 days (to be discussed with your specialist)

It is important to wear sunscreen to minimize sun exposure for a few weeks to maximize results

Avoid exercising for 48 hours.

 Besides these, no specific precaution to be followed, unless specifically advised by your specialist.

How many sessions are required?

Usually, only 2 sessions are required though in severe cases an additional session may be required 3-6 months. Results last for around 12 months.

IS IT PAINFUL?

There is a mild discomfort in the form of burning or tingling sensation and the energy is tailored to that tolerated by the patient.

Are there any risks in HIFU?

No, it is extremely safe. Though there may be mild discomfort in the form of tingling or burning sensation during the procedure. Occasional swelling has also been reported though it also subsides within a few hours.

When do we see the results of HIFU?

An immediate but temporary tightening is observed due to heat induced immediate collagen contraction. A more gradual onset and longer lasting skin lifting effect is visible 1 month onwards, due to new collagen synthesis. Effects such as lifting, tightening, glow, contouring appear after 1 month and maximally increase to upto 6 months.

What are the benefits of HIFU over other face-lifting procedures?

A safer alternative: In comparison with a surgical facelift and liposuction HIFU is non-invasive with almost nil downtime and nearly nil side effects while providing similar results

Fewer sessions and longer-lasting: Usually only one session is required though in severe cases an additional session may be required in comparison to other non – invasive RF heating procedures which require multiple sessions. Also, its result is longer lasting.

Affordable: It is also more affordable than other procedures like surgical facelift, liposuction, thread lift or fillers.
