Want Facelift without surgery or any injections? HIFU is the answer. This is a noninvasive facelift procedure using ultrasound to stimulate collagen production in the skin and destroying fat and old damaged collagen leading to a natural sleeker and more lifted appearance. It bypasses the surface of the skin, so side effects and downtime are minimal and as the ultrasound waves are color blind it is safe in all skin types.

The treatment session can be a bit painful, but you will be given medication and a topical anesthetic will be applied to make it more comfortable. The doctor will adjust the treatment depth with different ultrasound transducers that attach to the handpiece of the HIFU machine in order to deliver the energy to specific layers of tissue—the superficial dermis, at 1.5 mm; the deep dermis, at 3 mm; and the SMAS/platysma muscles, at 4.5mm.

You may see an immediate improvement, with increasing benefits over the next two to three months. There’s minimal downtime, though you may experience some slight redness, swelling, and very rarely bruising. You may also feel a bit sore or tingly in the treated areas for up to a few weeks afterward. HIFU can be repeated again if needed after a few months or a year.
