HIFU is a high-intensity focused ultrasound. It’s the best way to treat sagging skin across the whole body. Find out more here. HIFU works by using ultrasound to create heat at a very deep level within the skin. The heat damages your targeted skin cells, meaning your body has to work to repair them. The body’s natural way of doing this is by creating collagen, so that cell regrowth is kept optimal. This kind of treatment is ideal for tightening the skin around the neck, smoothening chest skin, and also treating problem areas of sagging skin. When you undergo this kind of treatment at our London clinic, we will begin the process by cleaning the area before using a handheld device to emit ultrasound waves. This is done in very short bursts, and it is highly targeted. Every session can last anywhere from half an hour to an hour and a half.
Benefits of HIFU
- Enhanced definition
- Wrinkle reduction
- Smoother skin
- Natural collagen stimulation
One reason why we offer this at our London clinic is because it doesn’t require any prior preparation, and when the session has been completed, you will soon find that there is no recovery time either. You can resume your day-to-day activities right after, and this makes it entirely suitable for those who live a busy lifestyle.
How Does HIFU Work?
- Gently heats the layers under the skin
- Ultrasound beams focus on a specific area
- No damage to adjacent tissue
- Cells experience beneficial damage, stimulating collagen production
