At Hatfield Dental Care, we are pleased to be able to offer high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) at our practice as part of our non-surgical facial aesthetic treatments.
Sometimes called the HIFU face lift, this treatment works by stimulating collagen production to create a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance in a natural way.
How does HIFU work?
Collagen is the protein in our skin that gives strength and elasticity. As we age, our collagen production declines, which is why our skin can start to look less plump, wrinkles appear, and some areas (such as the jowls) can start to sag.
HIFU treatment uses ultrasound to deliver heat energy into the different structural layers of the skin stimulating them into renewing the skin’s own collagen. This boost of collagen improves texture and reduces the drooping effect, thus creating a ‘face lift’. The results are amazing!
As the treatment works using heat energy, some patients may feel a slight prickling or heat sensation, but this is not uncomfortable or painful. The treatment usually takes 1 hour and the body will continue to produce fresh collagen for around 12 months making this a long lasting treatment.
HIFU is an excellent alternative for those who do not want injectable treatment such as anti-wrinkle or dermal filler injections.
What areas can be treated?
HIFU can treat the whole face and neck and patients will notice the following benefits:
- Contouring of the mid face, such as the cheeks
- Lifting of jowls
- Tightening of the jaw line
- Tightening of the neck
- Reduction of deep lines, such as nose to mouth
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
