High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) technology is one of the latest advancements in non-invasive aesthetic treatments. This innovative therapy uses ultrasound energy to target and heat the deeper layers of skin, stimulating collagen production and restoring volume. HIFU technology can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin, providing a more youthful and refreshed look.
When considering HIFU treatment, it’s important to understand what to expect before and after your procedure. Before treatment, you may notice some redness on the skin as a result of the ultrasound energy being delivered. The redness should dissipate after several hours. After treatment, you may notice some slight swelling in the treated area. This should last for a few days before dissipating.
Results of HIFU treatment can begin to be seen within three weeks and will continue to improve over time. After several weeks, you should notice a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, as well as an overall improvement in skin texture and tone.
What is HIFU and how does it work at Spire Aesthetics?
HIFU, available at Spire Aesthetics, is a non-invasive procedure that uses focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin, resulting in improved skin tone and texture.
HIFU can effectively target areas with skin laxity and sagging, including the face, neck, décolletage, and body. It’s a versatile treatment suitable for various regions where skin tightening is desired.
Prior to a HIFU session, clients should ensure their skin is clean and free from makeup or lotions. Consultation with our experts helps determine the suitability of the treatment and any specific pre-treatment instructions.
Clients might experience slight discomfort or a warm sensation during the treatment, but it is generally well-tolerated. The intensity of the sensation varies based on individual pain thresholds.
HIFU sessions at Spire Aesthetics typically last between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the treatment area. Clients can resume their regular activities immediately after the session.
Some clients notice an immediate tightening effect after a HIFU session due to the stimulation of collagen production. However, the full results become more noticeable over several weeks as the collagen-building process continues.
The results of HIFU treatments can last up to 12 to 18 months or more, depending on individual factors such as aging, lifestyle, and skincare routines. Maintenance sessions can help prolong the benefits.
