When will HIFU results show?
HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a non-surgical skin-tightening facelift treatment using ultrasound energy to create heat, stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin. Many people may experience an immediate tightening effect after treatment, but the end HIFU results we are looking for will show gradually over the following three months. During this time, old collagen structures are replaced by new strong collagen. The results are natural and give you a more youthful appearance.
How often do I need HIFU?
A HIFU facelift is a non-surgical treatment. Like many other non-surgical treatments, you will need occasional top-up sessions to maintain the appearance and continue stimulating collagen and elastin production.
The exact number of treatments and their interval varies depending on the individual. Initially, we recommend 1-3 sessions. After that, we recommend treatment every 9-18 months. Naturally, the more severe the skin condition is, the more often you will need treatment.
Is HIFU worth it?
If you are looking for a more natural solution to tighten and firm the skin, it is worth it, as no other non-surgical treatment can treat the SMAS layer of the skin like HIFU. HIFU has virtually no downtime; therefore, you can return to your regular routine immediately after treatment. It is also a very popular treatment for people who want to prevent premature ageing.
