HIFU, a high-intensity focused ultrasound therapy, is a non-invasive treatment to promote facial skin health. It is a non-invasive procedure used for skin tightening, done through non-surgical instruments. The instruments go into the deeper layer of the skin to promote collagen creation.
Besides performing on the face, this technology can be utilised on the neck, abdomen, buttocks, arms, thighs, and other body parts. The number of sittings a patient requires of HIFU skin tightening treatment for the best results depends on the device, energy source, body part, and patient’s demand.

What Is Skin Tightening Treatment?
HIFU skin tightening uses ultrasound to generate heat in the deeper level of the skin. This heat damages the targeted skin cells, helping them to repair again. According to the specialist at Unique Aesthetic, this non-surgical ultrasound treatment such as HIFU can-
- Tighten the facial skin or other parts of the part
- Reduce the appearance of jowls
- Lift drooping eyelids or eyebrows
- Smooth and tighten the skin
- Reduce wrinkles
How Does Skin Tightening Treatment Feel Like?
This is the most common question asked by the patients. Patients can experience some discomfort in the starting and after some treatment time. It may feel like a slightly prickly sensation from the electric pulse from the high-focused of the ultrasound energy. But you will be comfortable later. It is a completely safe and painless procedure, as per the experienced patients. If you experience any type of irritation or are concerned about the pain, your doctor or technician will recommend some painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs.
Once the treatment completes, you may experience a little swelling and redness in the area, which will reduce in the next couple of hours.
How Does Your Skin Look Like?
After having HIFU skin tightening treatment, you can expect to tighten and firm skin with reduced fine lines and wrinkles. Completely well-tone and younger-looking skin has never been so easier to achieve as the skin quality changes over time. You can reduce the marks, spots, wrinkles, finer lines and loose skin but would never be able to remove them utterly.
Also, the results depend on the patient’s skin type. Some people see results immediately, however, overall skin toning and lifting results appear in two-three months after the treatment. This is because new collagen takes time to replace the old ones. Once the procedure completes, you can see good results that last up to six months varying from person to person and the maintenance.
How To Prepare Before The Treatment?
There is nothing much to do before the treatment. All you have to do is to remove all the makeup and clean your face properly. Also, make sure that you do not have any type of skin problems such as infection, irritation, etc. and not take any medications. If yes, tell your artist before the procedure starts.
