Make informed decisions about cosmetic procedures by understanding these risks. Explore HIFU's potential side effects to ensure a well-informed choice for your aesthetic goals.
HIFU is short for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, HIFU is a non-surgical HIFU facelifting treatment that lifts and tightens the skin.
HIFU uses concentrated waves of ultrasound energy to precisely target deeper layers of tissue, leaving the skin surface undamaged. The technology induces an tissue coagulation that triggers wound healing and contraction, followed by a tighter and more uniform buildup of collagen fibers. Ultrasound energy can also target subcutaneous fat layers, reducing the prominence of areas with unwanted fat buildup.

Minimal to no downtime
You will feel an immediate tightening of your skin in the treated area, as the heat from the Micro-Focused Ultrasound contracts the network of collagen fibres. The strands of protein that make up collagen shrink when exposed to the levels of heat used in HIFU Skin Lifting treatment.
HIFU Skin Lifting treatment is suitable for both men and women. Candidates in their 30s and older who have mild to moderate skin seeking improvement in:
(1) EYE AREA & CROW’S FEET
(2) FINE LINES AND WRINKLES

The procedure is well tolerated. The procedure might be associated with some mild discomfort that usually disappears immediately after the session.
No. It does not have any effect on the treatment, but it is recommended to schedule the BTX and fillers procedure after the Ultraformer session.
Patients may see some effect almost immediately. True results develop over time as old collagen is regenerated with new collagen. As this collagen regeneration process continues up to 6 months after the initial treatment patients see continuing improvement over time.
The results of HIFU treatment can be seen immediately, although the full effects may take several months to become apparent as collagen production continues. The treatment is generally considered safe, with few side effects, and does not require any downtime or recovery period.
