High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) treatment has recently emerged in response to increasing demand for noninvasive procedures for skin lifting and tightening.
The principle of HIFU is to induce cellular damage and volume reduction of the target area selectively by means of coagulation by generating instant micro thermal lesions through the accumulation of high-frequency Ultrasound beams of specific tissue site without any damage to the epidermis and adjacent tissue.
Patients older than 30 years who desired facial lifting and wrinkle improvement, can be satisfied by this method. jaw line, cheek and perioral areas are the most satisfied regions in this method.
Erythema, swelling, purpura and braising can be appeared. No serious adverse events including neuralgia, nerve palsy, lymphatic edema, blistering er fat atrophy were noted.
Cold compress and using a Hydratant cream often advised after this treatment.
