The best results are seen on patients with deep mimic wrinkles, loose skin, nasolabial folds, drooping eyelids and chin sagging.
How is HIFU performed?
First, your skin will be cleaned. Then, a special gel will be applied on the area of treatment. With a special machine emitting ultrasound waves, the desired areas are treated.
The full effect of the treatment is seen after some time, but some changes are noticeable immediately after the treatment.
The HIFU is recommended for neck, hands and body. Ultrasound gives fast and visible result. The treatment can be performed as often as required and effect of the treatment is visible for up to two years.
Even though some result is visible immediately after the treatment, full rejuvenation process takes up to 90 days. So, the final result will be seen in three months after the treatment.
This procedure does not require any rehabilitation process. Some patients may feel minor swelling or redness in the treated area. These symptoms only last a short time.
