What Is HIFU?
HIFU stands for ‘High Intensity Focused Ultrasound’. This treatment can target various depths of the body’s tissue for skin tightening, skin lifting and body contouring. Entirely non-invasive, HIFU machines uses ultrasound to create heat at a deep level in the skin. This heat damages targeted skin cells, in a controlled way, forcing the body to repair them. To do this, the body must produce collagen which is essential for cell regrowth. Collagen is a substance in the skin that gives it structure and elasticity. HIFU is sometimes referred to as the ‘Lunchtime Face Lift’ as the treatment is quick, very tolerable and has no downtime.
