High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity, but thankfully there are procedures we can use to address those concerns. One of the latest technologies is HIFU or Ultherapy. HIFU stands for High-intensity Focused Ultrasound, and is a non-invasive procedure which targets areas of the face, neck, chin, and upper chest to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; this improves overall skin elasticity and appearance by functioning just as a face lift does. Thus called non-invasive facelift.
For those who are seeking the results of a face lift (but don’t want to undergo surgery) HIFU may be the procedure for you. By using the ultrasound technology we are able to target the dermis at a precise depth which spares the epidermis untouched thus focusing on the layer of the skin where most tightening is needed. Currently, HIFU is the only non-invasive procedure that can address such deep skin layers, as the only other alternative is surgical procedure.
