HIFU - High-Intensity Focussed Ultrasound.
It is a non-invasive means of facial sculpting and tightening.
Have you ever wondered how suddenly your skin has started looking aged? When did those fine lines and lax skin become part of your identity? Why does it not seem taut and shiny like before ??
Well, this is how ageing looks! A wrinkle here, a fold of skin there!
But why are we bothered about it now? How were the earlier generations dealing with this? Well, the answer is one that you would not like. We have started ageing earlier, almost by a decade !! OOPS
The increasing stress, the want to excel, those extra hours spent in front of the desk, that one more hour of sleep compromised, all this has cumulatively aged us earlier.
Well, don’t worry. Science is progressing at a rate faster than your age !!

HIFU Mechanism of Action
HIFU is a procedure that brings about a non-surgical facelift. The ultrasound waves thus heat up the cells and cause controlled cell damage that stimulates collagen production in the long run. Collagen is the primary protein that maintains skin tightness and elasticity. Hence, its increased production helps to deal with fine lines, wrinkles and lax skin.
The energy emitted acts directly on the deeper layers of the skin, such that the outermost visible layer of skin remains unaﬀected.
- The treatment area is prepared under aseptic measures.
- A topical numbing cream is applied to the concerned area.
- Energy is set according to the degree of severity and the site involved.
- The probe is used in regular motions for the required amount of time at a particular area to generate adequate heat energy for collagen stimulation.
There is minimal downtime in the form of mild post-procedure redness that subsides on its own in a few hours.
A single cycle consists of two sessions, 2 weeks apart. The results are maintained for 6 months.
When to start?
As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure, so why hide or camouﬂage a wrinkle when you can prevent one?
Start early. Start safe. Start non-surgical.
