HIFU

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound

As we get older, our body’s production of collagen slows, causing the upper layers of skin to wrinkle and sag. In order to stimulate the production of new collagen, HIFU sends ultrasound energy to selected depths below your skin’s surface, causing small injuries to the underlying tissue. As that tissue heals, it produces new collagen that tightens your skin naturally.

HIFU treatments are usually in the following areas of the face and body:

  • Forehead
  • Decolletage
  • Chin
  • Brows and crow feet
  • Lower face to neck
  • Full face and neck
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs front or back
  • Full Thighs (front, back and sides)
  • Upper back (bra strap area)
  • Flanks
  • Upper or lower abdomen
  • Chest for men
  • Hips
  • Full abdomen
  • Under buttocks
  • Knees
