HIFU - High Intensity Focused Ultrasound

High intensity focused ultrasound is a non-invasive therapeutic technique that uses non-ionizing ultrasonic waves to heat skin tissue.

SKPRO 3D HIFU uses ultrasound energy to encourage the production of collagen which results in firmer skin.

During treatment, ultrasound is micro-focused below the skin’s surface to cause cellular friction and precise, pin-point heating.

Similar to a magnifying glass focusing sunlight, heat is only generated at the focal point, leaving the skin’s surface and intervening tissue unaffected. Tissue at the focal point is heated to around 65℃, causing immediate collagen contraction and denaturation, and initiating aggressive collagen synthesis.

Over 90-180 days, the wound-healing response stimulates long-term tissue remodelling and leads to further lifting and tightening, with results that can last a year or more.

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound History

High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is most widely known in the past for its use in medical proceedures to treat tumours.

The first reported use of HIFU for aesthetic use was in 2008 HIFU was then approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2009 for brow lifts.

Today - these devices have now been cleared by the FDA in 2014 to improve lines and wrinkles of the upper chest and neckline (decolletage).

  • HIFU is Non-Surgical Face Lift Treatment- HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) Technology.
  • The collagen is the key structural component to support your skin.
  • HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) which is the new technical Treatment used today for face lifting and tightening.

What can HIFU treat?

  • Skin Laxity
  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Tightening sagging skin on the neck (sometimes called turkey neck)
  • Lifting the cheeks, eyebrows, and eyelids.
  • Enhancing jawline definition.
  • Smoothing the skin.
