What is HIFU?
Ultraformer 3 HIFU ((High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) provides a rapid and effective treatment for reducing signs of skin aging and restoring youthful glow. The HIFU device targets the dermis and superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) that activates collagen production, which improves loose skin and decreases wrinkles. High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound is currently the only non-invasive medical device that allows the deepest penetration of energy for skin lifting and tightening.
How HIFU works?
The high energy of HIFU is delivered precisely to treat the targeted area with less heat diffusion to surrounding tissues. This delivers highly effective clinical results with minimal pain and side effects. In fact, this precision is its unique technology that makes the procedure comparatively more comfortable.
The Collagen Stimulating Process
During the treatment, existing collagen fibres is being heated up and stimulated, causing them to thicken and shorten. The HIFU procedure also stimulates new collagen growth within the skin. This results in you having a long-term tightening and lifting effect.
Besides triggering collagen and tightening the area, the heat from the Ultraformer HIFU also melts facial fats. This is best used for toning up double chin, lifting the lower face, jowl reduction (fats around the corner of the mouth). tightening the neck.
