What is HIFU?
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is one of the newer cosmetic treatments in the market aimed at skin-tightening.
How does HIFU work?
Ultrasound energy is focused to target the layers of skin just below the surface to heat it up. Once the cells in the targeted area reaches a certain temperature, they will receive cellular damage, which stimulates the cells to produce collagen.
The increase in collagen production will give rise to tighter, firmer skin with fewer wrinkles.
At the same time, there will be no damage to the upper layers of your skin or the tissues nearby, making HIFU a safe and effective treatment option.
