What Is a HIFU?
The High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, also known as HIFU, is a modern, non-invasive alternative to a facelift procedure. Since HIFU requires no surgery, it produces immediate results with no downtime.
The HIFU is designed to penetrate five millimetres deep into the skin tissue and provide ultrasonic heat. It targets the collagen-producing skin cells.
We offer a HIFU facial treatment to stimulate the production of collagen in the development of new skin cells. By firming the skin surface, your face will have a more even skin tone.
Benefits of HIFU
- Tightens sagging neck skin
- Lifts the cheeks and drooping eyelids
- Pronounces jawline
- Stimulates collagen production
- Smooths skin surface
- Reduces wrinkles
Frequently Asked Questions
How Is HIFU Done?
A HIFU treatment begins with cleansing of the skin before the ultrasound gel is applied directly on the skin surface. The device’s hand tool is pressed on the targeted facial areas to penetrate the deep tissues with short pulses of ultrasonic heat energy.
Will the Procedure Hurt?
Some people may feel a bit of discomfort or mild pain. Your skincare specialist may apply a local anesthetic before the session and over-the-counter pain relievers can be taken afterwards.
What Age Is Best for HIFU?
At Heart Lake Aesthetics, our HIFU facelift is designed to help those dealing with aging skin issues. It is recommended for men and women over the age of 30 with moderate skin laxity.
Can I Do HIFU Once a Month?
It is best to wait at least six months between HIFU treatments, especially after the first session. Most results only require a follow-up HIFU treatment once a year if need be.
How Many Treatments of HIFU Do You Need?
This depends on the individual skin health as the HIFU treatment stimulates the production of collagen. For those who require more than one treatment, your skin specialist will advise you on the recommended time between sessions.
Can I Have Botox after HIFU?
Yes, the use of Botox to weaken the muscles of the face can be resumed one week after a HIFU session.
Can I Apply Makeup After the Treatment?
Yes, as there is no damage to the skin’s surface, makeup can be applied immediately after the HIFU treatment.
How Long Does a HIFU Treatment Take?
At Heart Lake Aesthetics, your skincare specialist will need 30 to 60 minutes, dubbing this non-invasive treatment as a “lunch-time facelift”.
