What is a HIFU Treatment?

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment used for facelifting. This treatment is also called ultra lift, non-surgical facelift, or mini facelift. HIFU treatment uses high-intensity ultrasound waves to penetrate the skin into the deep tissues and stimulate collagen production. Due to the ultrasound waves, the collagen starts rebuilding. As a result, collagen renewal tightens and lifts the facial skin and gives the candidate a youthful appearance.

Who is the Ideal Candidate for the HIFU Procedure?

The ideal candidate for the HIFU non-invasive facelift is someone who:

  • Has sagging skin due to aging
  • Wants a non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure
  • Needs to improve their skin tone and texture
  • Is experiencing skin laxity
  • Wants to get rid of damaged skin with age signs
  • Have dull and damaged skin
  • Wants to have glowing and vibrant skin

How is a HIFU Treatment Performed?

The HIFU procedure is safe and effective, taking about 1-2 hours to complete. The duration of this non-invasive facelift procedure depends on the severity of the skin condition.

The step-by-step procedure is as follows:

  • The dermatologist cleanses the treatment area thoroughly before starting the procedure.
  • They will apply an ultrasound gel with anesthetic cream on the treatment area. It will help minimize discomfort during the procedure.
  • Then, they will take the HIFU device and set it to the correct angle using the HIFU viewer. This device will then target the skin of the treatment area.
  • When high-frequency ultrasound beams penetrate the deeper skin layers, they damage the skin cells. As a result, they stimulate the body’s natural collagen and elastin production. Ultimately, the candidate’s skin will become tighter and firmer due to these proteins.

How Can I Prepare for a HIFU Facelift?

To ensure the best possible results from HIFU, you need to follow the pre-procedure care provided by your healthcare provider. The guidelines generally include:

  • Avoid taking blood-thinning medicines
  • Avoid applying cosmetic products or makeup to the facial area
  • Avoid sun exposure, and when going out, apply the prescribed sunblock.
  • Refrain from consuming alcohol and from smoking

Aftercare Instructions for HIFU Facial Treatment

After the HIFU Non-Surgical Facelift Treatment, candidates will be asked to take care of their skin. These aftercare instructions help with a speedy recovery and achieve optimum results.

While these instructions vary for each candidate, some general post-procedure guidelines are as follows:

  • Do not go out in the sun unnecessarily, and always apply sunscreen when going out.
  • Avoid taking hot showers until the skin heals completely.
  • Keep the skin hydrated with a good-quality moisturizer.
  • Avoid touching the skin unnecessarily.

What are the Benefits of the HIFU?

There are multiple HIFU benefits for face tightening and lifting. Some of the benefits of the HIFU treatment are as follows:

  • The HIFU treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive.
  • This procedure is considered safe and involves zero downtime.
  • The skin becomes smooth and tight after the treatment.
  • It stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.
  • It significantly reduces wrinkles and fine lines.
  • The treatment leaves no scars or permanent marks.
  • It offers natural-looking results.
  • It improves jawline contours and eliminates under-eye bags.

What to Expect from the HIFU Treatment?

HIFU treatment is a safe and effective procedure to lift facial skin. Candidates can expect to experience noticeably tighter skin with lifted features and improved blood circulation.

Typically, the procedure has no downtime. Some candidates may experience redness or mild skin swelling, but it subsides within a few hours. Although pain is not a common side effect of the HIFU treatment, some dermatologists prescribe painkillers to minimize any discomfort during the recovery period.

Results of HIFU Facial Treatment

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) gives immediate as well as long-term results. Candidates will notice the initial face tightening and lifting effects immediately after the treatment. However, the complete HIFU results will take a few months to appear.

The candidate’s facial contours will visibly improve over the next few weeks of the treatment. Moreover, the skin will look younger, brighter, and healthier with increased collagen and elastin production.

Get The Cost

How Much Does HIFU Treatment Cost?

The price of the HIFU treatment in Dubai varies from patient to patient, depending on a number of factors. The severity of the condition, skin type, number of sessions, and desired results are cost-determining factors.

The starting price of the HIFU treatment at Euromed Clinic Center is 3000 AED for the face and 3500 AED for the face and neck.

Can HIFU Damage Your Skin?

Although the HIFU treatment uses high-intensity ultrasound waves to rejuvenate the skin, these waves are not harmful. The ultrasound waves target the deeper skin tissues and do not harm the upper layers or adjacent tissues.

Are there any Risks associated with HIFU Treatment?

Although there are no severe side effects of the HIFU treatment, some candidates may experience mild swelling, redness, numbness, bruising, tingling, or mild pain. Usually, these side effects do not last long and subside within a few hours.

How Many HIFU Treatment Sessions Do You Need?

Most experts recommend undergoing 2 HIFU sessions initially for optimum results. After that, the dermatologist will decide the number of sessions, depending on the candidate’s skin condition. Moreover, each session will be separated 3-8 weeks to let the skin fully heal before the next session.

Does HIFU Ultrasound Work?

HIFU ultrasound works as it is gaining popularity compared to traditional surgical facelifts because of its safe, effective, and non-invasive nature. Apart from that, the procedure involves less recovery time, making it a sought-after treatment for the patients. 

What Age is Best for HIFU?

The ideal age to undergo HIFU is upon noticing aging effects on your skin, typically in the late 30s. However, the appearance of premature fine lines, wrinkles, and saggy skin in your early 30s may make you consider opting for HIFU.

Is One Session of HIFU Enough?

Majority of people see noticeable results after just one session. These results can be extended to a high duration (up to 30-36 months) by strictly adhering to an abstemious diet, maintaining a healthy regimen, avoiding prohibited cosmetic products, remaining hydrated, and avoiding unnecessary sun exposure. 

Is It OK to Do HIFU Every Month?

Aestheticians recommend a gap of 1-3 months between sessions. Undergoing HIFU only a month later may be wasteful if one has fine skin.
