HIFU Skin Tightening Principle
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) directly delivers heat energy to skin and subcutaneous tissue that can stimulate and renew the skin’s collagen thus consequently improving the texture and reducing sagging of the skin. It literally acheives the results of a facelift or a body lift without any invasive surgery or injections, moreover, an added bonus of this procedure is that there is no downtime.

It is an invasive, impressive, and long-last effective treatment to reduce fat, especially for the abdomen and thigh. High intensity focused ultrasound, liposonix target at the fat of 13mm(depth of penetration), heating up the fat tissue, combine with high energy and good penetration to resolve the fat, during the treatment, the triglyceride and fatty acid excrete by the process of metabolism, and the vessel and nerve will not be damaged.
What are the benefits of High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)?
As a completely non-surgical, non-invasive procedure, High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound offers patients many benefits over other procedures –

Hifu treamtents depend on the selected body part, the procedure takes approx. 30-40 min. The beautician selects the appropriate hifu cartridge and applies it to the skin in the treatment area. A concentrated beam of ultrasound penetrates deep into the skin, heating it to the desired depth. In this way tissue is shrunken and controlled micro damages stimulate the production of new collagen.
After the treatment, short-term effects may appear, such as skin reddening, tenderness in the treatment areas, and slight swelling.
Up to two days after the procedure sun exposure, solarium, sauna, and skin heating treatments should be avoided. Two weeks after the treatment, you should also not perform any peels.
HIFU uses focused ultrasound energy to target the layers of skin just below the surface. The ultrasound energy causes the tissue to heat up rapidly.
Once the cells in the targeted area reach a certain temperature, they experience cellular damage. While this may seem counterintuitive, the damage actually stimulates the cells to produce more collagen — a protein that provides structure to the skin.
The increase in collagen results in tighter, firmer skinTrusted Source with fewer wrinkles. Since the high-frequency ultrasound beams are focused on a specific tissue site below the skin’s surface, there’s no damage to the upper layers of the skin and adjacent tissue.
HIFU may not be appropriate for everyone. In general, the procedure works best on people older than 30 with mild-to-moderate skin laxity.
People with photodamaged skin or a high degree of loose skin may need several treatments before seeing results.
Older people with more extensive photo-aging, severe skin laxity, or very saggy skin on the neck aren’t good candidates and may need surgery.
HIFU isn’t recommended for people with infections and open skin lesions at the target area, severe or cystic acne, and metallic implants in the treatment area.

How can HIFU help with stress incontinence?
Stress incontinence by women is common and happens when physical movement or activity such as (coughing, sneezing, running, or heavy lifting) puts pressure (stress) on your bladder. As women get older the vaginal tissue can lose its elasticity and so cause problems with fully urinating.
