HIFU stands for high intensity focused ultrasound and is known as the non-surgical facelift without the knife HIFU knife .Clinical studies have found that the regenerative process of new collagen are optimized at temperatures of 60-70 celcius. HIFU is the only treatment that can deliver these temperatures to the required depth without heating the surface of the skin.
HIFU frequency is above 20,000 hz sound waves intended to sculpt and lift the skin. It achieves this by the way of deposition of micro-focused ultrasound energy.HIFU reaches depths of 1.5mm to 4.5mm on the face and neck and 8mm and 12mm on the body. Ultrasound energy results in a change to the physiology, resulting in stimulation of new collagen and elastin as part of the healing process.
HIFU is a non-surgical and non-laser procedure that directs beams of high intensity ultrasound deep into the layers of the skin gently heating the skin tissues to lift and tighten aged skin without incisions or damage to the surface of the skin. HIFU heats up the SAMS (explained below) part of the skin to between 60-70 C this raises thermal coagulation which accelerates skin rejuvenation and maximises the tightening effect.
