HIFU: Tighten the skin of the face and neck in just one hour
- “Ultra Sound” to tighten the area under the face and neck and define the jaws
Dr. Roy explains that the uses of the “Ultra Sound” or “HIFU” ultrasound technology were medical in the field of human body imaging; It was used to detect the fetus during pregnancy and imaging blood vessels and others. But after that, the effect of this ultrasound on fat breakdown was discovered, so doctors began working on developing it until they reached a face-lift operation using an ultrasound-equipped device.
This technique is a great alternative for women who are afraid of surgeries or want to get tight skin in a short time.
Its mechanism of action:
Ultrasound is characterized by the accuracy of the ultrasound device in viewing the tissues under the skin. It is a device with multiple heat outputs, in addition to a TV screen that enables the doctor to see the location of the tissue to be controlled.
This endoscopic technique relies on heating temperatures in the tissues under the skin, specifically on a thin layer located above the muscle layer on which all facial tissues are fixed. It is passed on the skin of the face, neck, and the places to be lifted and tightened. Ultrasound waves penetrate deep into the skin to activate the inner layer and stimulate it to build new collagen tissues, which in turn tightens and lifts the skin. Thus, the skin shrinks and makes it appear tighter and younger.
About the effectiveness of this technique, Dr. Roy says, it may vary according to the type and condition of the skin. There are those who suffer from slight and moderate sagging. One session takes between 45 and 60 minutes, and the results are fully visible after 2 or 3 months. This technique works on building the skin from the inside, as collagen restoration requires some time. The patient may see the freshness and difference in her skin after each session. But in general, this technique is very effective; The woman undergoing this treatment can notice the difference from one session to the final result after three months from the end of the session, and she can also undergo another session, but after 6 months or a year from the end of the first session.
Its uses and side effects:
Ultrasound technology is used to treat wrinkles with extreme precision, in addition to its ability to tighten sagging cheeks and lower face in an attractive and effective way, and dissolve fat in the double neck, in addition to defining the lower jaw and raising the cheeks, without any side effects except for a very slight pain that can be treated . The “Ultra Sound” technique spares women from surgical operations that require complete anesthesia and a recovery period of several days in the hospital as well. She may not need to stay at home, where she can go straight to work. All she needs is sunscreen if she’s sitting in the morning.
This technique is suitable for women aged between 35-55 years.
Whoever resorts to the rapid face-lift technique will feel freshness, beauty and rejuvenation in her skin, so she appears younger by several years. The effect of this technique may take three years, if the woman follows some exercises to tighten the skin, moisturize it and remove makeup on it daily, in addition to the right food that provides the skin with vitamins, and drinking sufficient water that maintains the freshness of the skin and its level of hydration.
Dr. Roy explains that all of these cosmetic and non-surgical treatments are approved by the US Food and Drug Administration and the European Union.
