WHAT DOES HIFU Ultrasound therapy TREAT?
HIFU Ultrasound therapy helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds on many facial areas, including the brow, the “crow's feet” around the eyes, the upper cheek, the jaw, and the upper neck. In one clinical trial, for example, 9 of 10 patients exhibited significant lifting of the eyebrows—an average of 1.7 millimeters, or about 6/10ths of an inch. This result gave many of the patients a more open, refreshed appearance around the eyes. Patients in this study also reported that the skin on lower areas of their face—and on their neck—looked firmer and tighter after Ultrasound therapy treatments.
WHAT IS THE HIFU Ultrasound therapy TREATMENT LIKE?
You may experience some temporary discomfort during the procedure. Pain-reduction methods maybe used, such as cooling the skin with cold air during the treatment. Your Laser Technician will discuss these options with you.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Because HIFU Ultrasound therapy is a relatively new skin-tightening procedure, long-term studies have yet to be conducted. Early evidence suggests, however, that its effects last for 2 to 5 years. Of course, as with almost all cosmetic skin treatments, how long the treatment lasts will greatly depend on how well you continue to take care of your skin—by protecting it from the sun, for example. The older and more damaged your skin is, the more treatments you'll need. Many people require only a single Ultrasound therapy treatment to see significant improvement. For others, two or more treatments may need to be undertaken to achieve desirable results.
