Pros and Cons of Hifu Facial Treatment

Pros & Cons of HIFU

Hifu facial treatment is a popular choice for those who want to achieve visible results without the downtime, incision, or cost of surgery. 

There are many signs of ageing; lines and wrinkles, loss of skin elasticity and rough-textured appearance. 

Luckily today we also have many effective and proven anti-ageing treatments. 

High-intensity frequency ultrasound

Our skin constantly renews itself. But by the time we age, the renewal slows down and causes the skin ageing. When Hifu creates the controlled cellular damage on tissue, the skin renewal elevates and starts working as if the skin was 10-20 years younger.

Hifu treatment uses ultrasound energy targeting below-the-surface layers of the skin. Ultrasound energy heats the skin tissue rapidly and creates controlled cellular damage. This damage stimulates the cells to produce more collagen and promotes the skin renewal process. 

Non-invasive Hifu

Hifu facial treatment is not an invasive treatment. There is no surgery involved.

It is simply waking up the skin to work as it was when you were younger. 

Hifu facial treatment is most effective on mild to moderately aged skin. It is seen as and ideal first defence to address ageing signs.

Pros of Hifu Facial Treatment

When Hifu is operated, the high-frequency ultrasound is focused on the tissue below the skin’s surface. So there is no damage to the upper layers of the skin.

Hifu is not an invasive treatment. There is no incision, needles or scarring.

There is no downtime. You can get back to your daily life right after your treatment which is a massive appeal to many.

Right after your treatment, you will see some results. But for the maximum results, it usually takes up to 3 months. 

Some of our clients choose Hifu because the treatment results get better over time. Plus the added advantage of not having to explain they’ve had any procedures done. 

Hifu facial treatment is significantly cheaper than any surgical facelift.

If you are looking for subtle changes to your appearance, you may not want to have surgical treatment. Surgery can be very expensive, risky and prone to complications. With Hifu, you can rejuvenate your skin and appearance much easier. 

With surgical facelifts, there are always risks of bleeding, infection, blood clots, pain, scarring, and anaesthesia risks. 

On the other hand with Hifu you don’t have these risks. 

As Hifu facial treatment works by stimulating and promoting the skin’s natural healing process, the results are very natural-looking. 

Hifu facial treatment is suitable for all skin types.

It is a very quick and highly tolerable treatment. You will not feel like you are going under a massive procedure. 

Hifu facial treatment has many benefits. It contours your face and promotes your skin to fight with ageing. But it also renews the skin texture. The skin blemishes, large pores, acne, pimples… As Hifu facial treatment mainly activates your skin’s natural process, it provides an overall renewal as well as anti-ageing.

It naturally wakes up your skin/body to work and produce collagen acting like it was 20 years younger.

Cons of Hifu facial treatment

Hifu promotes skin to regenerate rather than filling under the skin surface for a more plump look or getting rid of the extra skin with surgery. 

As it is a way to promote the skin’s natural process, the results depend on your skin’s nature and ability to regenerate by itself. Hence results may vary from person to person. With surgery results are more certain. 

This doesn’t mean that Hifu will not be effective on your skin. Some people may benefit more from their treatment. 

Some people may experience slight swelling and redness right after their treatment. Which will usually disappear quickly. The treatment area may also feel slightly sensitive for a week.

Hifu is most suitable for mild to moderate skin laxity. If you have very saggy skin you might consider other skin treatments. 

Hifu facial treatment effects usually continue for around 12 months. After this period you may require repeated treatments to maintain the best results. 

Contraindications for Hifu

  • metal implants
  • blood disorders
  • silicone injections
