HIFU – High Intensity Focused Ultrasound

You are currently viewing HIFU – High Intensity Focused Ultrasound

What is that?

HIFU is the acronym of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound and is a technique in the hands of the Aesthetic Doctor that allows to obtain results similar to non-surgical lifting, therefore without the need for incisions, scalpels or insertion of needles and catheters venous. It works by gradually restructuring the tissues without an intervention and therefore without the complications of an operation. No sedation, no operating room.

How does High Intensity Focused Ultrasound work?

Focused Ultrasound works at different depths with two different objectives:

  • reduce localized adiposity
  • reactivate collagen fibers

the fat is subsequently released by ultrasound and then naturally expelled from the body. This particular type of ultrasound is also able to improve the elasticity and tone of the skin as well as blood and lymphatic circulation with a consequent improvement in the appearance of the tissues.

How soon are the effects seen?

Already after the first session you can notice improvements but the improvement continues and after about two weeks the maximum lifting effect is reached. The treatment must therefore generally be repeated from 2 to 3 sessions at a distance of 30/45 days between one session and another.

The improvements that are noticeable:

  • texture quality
  • of the tone
  • the radiance of the skin

Which areas can be treated?

  • face
  • neck
  • chin
  • buttocks
  • thighs
  • hips
  • belly

What treatments can it be combined with?

The power of each treatment and the results that each treatment brings, as in every treatment, assist each other and it is in fact important that an expert doctor always frames the situation and the clinical needs of the patient in order to stipulate a treatment plan able to fully satisfy the patient.

The HIFU technique can be associated with many of the Aesthetic Medicine techniques such as:

  • carboxytherapy
  • mesotherapy (read the article on mesotherapy)
  • following LESC (read the article on Subcutaneous Lipo Emulsion)
