You may know HIFU, or you may know Ultherapy which is a very similar treatment. HIFU treatment uses a medical device that delivers precise amounts of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy into your skin. In addition, this non-surgical, non-invasive treatment at Skin Works Medical Spa has the effect of stimulating collagen production, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and causing the skin to look younger, firmer, and more supple. Wait no more! Reclaim your natural youth!
Skin Works' Skin Tightening effectively targets two areas. First, the dermis, which is where your collagen is structurally located, and secondly, the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) muscle, which is a tough, deep layer of muscles and fibrous tissue that forms the structure of your face and neck. Furthermore, when targeting the dermis with this FDA approved procedure, the focused ultrasound pulses that are delivered stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, resulting in increased collagen and firmer, younger-looking skin over time. After that, the SMAS muscle is targeted using the device, the ultrasound energy delivered has an effect of tightening the fibrous tissue in the SMAS, resulting in a lifted, rejuvenated appearance. Consequently, given the importance of directing HIFU waves into the right parts of the facial structure, the ultrasound imaging in the device helps target focused ultrasound energy and brings about effective results.
There is little to no downtime after a HIFU procedure. The results of HIFU (same as Ultherapy) are continuing and progressive, as the treatment relies on the body’s natural healing process. This treatment includes the full face.
