Aging is a natural part of life. But, natural aging takes place gradually and with a healthy lifestyle and diet, you can delay the effects of the years creeping up on you. In today’s times, pollution and the damaging effects of the sun cause premature aging. Younger people are noticing lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, and sagging skin. If you’re wary of the chemicals contained in cosmetics or any kind of invasive anti-aging solutions, HIFU is the best option for you.
HIFU is the acronym for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, an innovative technique that is completely non-invasive and works to reverse the signs of aging without inflicting a single puncture wound. You’ll be delighted to learn that it is safe to use, and rarely has any allergic or adverse reactions.
HIFU uses the power of sound at special frequencies very much like the ultrasounds used in digital imaging devices. Dermatologists use a unique wand to deliver these sound waves into your skin in the problem areas. In response to the sound waves, the cells in the layer of collagen and elastin under the skin start to vibrate and rejuvenate. Over the next few weeks after the HIFU skin lifting session, you’ll notice the lines and wrinkles slowing fading away.
You may also know HIFU as Ultherapy or Ulthera. And, many cosmetologists recommend the treatment for different flaws in your facial skin. For instance:
It will interest you to know that any person can get HIFU. This anti-aging modality has no side effects, contraindications, or downtime. When you arrive for your session, the doctor will ask you lie back and relax. Next, she applies a lubricating gel on the face and runs a wand gently over your skin. The only sensations you’re likely to experience is a tingling feeling and warmth that is somewhat soothing. No incisions or injections are used. And, that makes HIFU painless without any risk of infections.
Once the session is complete, the doctor simply clears away the gel and you’re free to go back to work or your daily activities. The only after effects you may notice are some amount of flushing and redness, and the treated skin might feel a bit numb to the touch. However, all of these effects settle within a couple of days. You can only look forward to the skin flaws fading away leaving behind gorgeous, glowing skin.
Will you need follow-up sessions? Your dermatologist will advise you on that depending on the intensity of your skin flaws. As for how long the effects last, you can expect beautiful skin for at least 12 months or more.
