HOW DOES HIFU TRIGGERS COLLAGEN RENEWAL
As we age, it is no surprise that our bodies will produce less and less collagen. As a result, our skin will start to lose its elasticity and radiance and forms fine lines and wrinkles. This is when treatment such as HIFU is beneficial as it is able to heat different layers of the skin to boost collagen. The HIFU energy involves heating the dermal and superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layers that undergo separate phases of blood coagulation, wound contractions, and tighter shelving of new collagen to reduce wrinkles and sagging skin. This layer is the famous layer that plastic surgeon pulls during a facelift treatment.
After the procedure, you will see 20% of the final results. Results will gradually improve and the patient may feel improvement in terms of facial contours, skin firmness, and elasticity over 12 weeks post-procedure. The final result will peak at 12 weeks post-procedure.
In most cases where patients have loose skin, more than one treatment is required to achieve the desired results. The recommended session is 2-3 sessions in 1 year for first timer, followed by maintenance every 6-8 months for maintenance.
HIFU offers a natural lifted, youthful, and refreshed look.
