Which one would you like to treat first wrinkles or sagging skin? HIFU treats both!

High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a relatively new aesthetic treatment for skin tightening and lifting in context of Nepal, however it has been in use in other parts of world for more than a decade. Unique feature about HIFU is micro focused ultrasound energy is able to target deeper layer of the skin, the SMAS, where no other devices such as laser and radio-frequency have reached.

HIFU works by depositing focused ultrasound energy to the multiple layers of skin just below the surface starting from 1.5mm depth to 4.5mm depth. This brief ultrasound energy pulses cause the tissue to heat up rapidly and induces controlled damage. Body's repair system senses the damage and begins to repair by making more collagen and elastin proteins that provides structure and support to the skin.

These support structures gradually build up over the period of months, hence your result improves with time. One may expect to have tighter and lifted skin that looks more soft, supple, replenished and younger looking. HIFU can minimize fine lines, deep set wrinkles, lift sagging jowls, lift sagging eyebrows, tighten loose skin, reduce nasolabial fold, reduce malar crease, tighten neck and melt double chin giving sharp and attractive jawline. Overall HIFU can sculpt and contour your face shape.

HIFU can be done at any age, but as with any other procedures results are better if it is done at the age when wrinkles and some sagging are just apparent rather than doing at late with severe sagging. People with severe loose skin may need more than one treatment to see appreciable result. Most clients need only one treatment, however the procedure needs to be repeated in few years as the natural aging process takes over.

HIFU is for those who doesn't want to undergo through risks and recovery time associated with invasive procedure such as surgery, yet! get the modest face lift. HIFU is done without anesthesia. Procedure is well tolerable with no to minimum downtime. Some complaints of discomfort during the procedure as stiffness. Procedure time depends upon the areas to be treated, full face and neck may require 1 to 2hours.

In addition, HIFU with body cartridges 6.5mm and 13mm can be done to reduce arm fat, bra fat, tummy fat, love handles; and tighten sagging skin around knees and elbow.

HIFU can be performed as solo treatment or combined with other procedures such as botox, threads and filler for better result.

If you are looking for just one procedure that works on wrinkle and saggy loose skin without risk and downtime, then HIFU is for you!
