High-intensity focused ultrasound is a non-invasive therapeutic technique that uses non-ionizing ultrasonic waves to heat tissue. HIFU can be used to increase the flow of blood or lymph, or to destroy tissue, such as tumors, through a number of mechanisms.
How Does HIFU Work?
HIFU is a breakthrough in non-surgical treatment. Through stimulating collagen in deeper skin layer by ultrasonic wave, the effects of face lifting and skin rejuvenating will be achieved. The improvement of ocular region includes eyebrow lifting, eyelid ptosis reduction, crow’s feet smoothing. The eyes will be brimming with radiating vigor. Face sagging shall be prevented and the sign of aging from wing of nose to corners of mouth, to mandibular wrinkles shall be improved. Moreover, the jaw line will become obvious and skin will be improved.
The main treatment area of HIFU is facial part and neck. It has wonderful treatment result on tightening skin and removing wrinkles. The cheeks shall be effectively lifted and tightened; jaw lines shall be improved and become more beautiful. The annoying forehead wrinkles, nasolabial folds and crow’s feet wrinkles shall be removed.
Thermal energy of HIFU brings two effects: one is visible effects of immediate contraction of collagen and SMAS during treatment; the other is the long term regeneration of collagen after tissue is heated. Different patients with different physiques have different reactions to the treatment. Time is needed for muscle building by newly produced collagen. Most people can receive relative obvious curative effects in 3-6 months after treatment.
The advantage of HIFU lies in skin regeneration and rejuvenation at one time. Choose relevant treatment probes based on patient’s skin conditions with specific personal parameters setting and more targeted and comprehensive. Skin will be continuously improved by stimulating the regeneration of collagen and the effects can last one and a half years to two years.
With High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), the device focuses the ultrasonic wave on a single point to produce high energy, which acting on SMAS. The SMAS layer will be contracted and lifting effects achieved.
Advantages of HIFU
- Deep dermis treatment: directly act on SMAS layer
- Suitable thermal temperature: non-invasively stimulating regeneration of collagen and elastic fibers in deep layer
- Extreme accuracy: HIFU positioning without damaging surrounded tissues
- Visible curative effect: lifting and tightening effects acquired immediately
- No need of recovery period: not affecting work and life
- Non-surgery: without wound
- Long lasting effects: maintain outline compacting and face lifting for a long time
- Comfortable treatment process: energy penetrates the epidermis without pain
Important Patient Information
- Patient with open wound is not allowed to take treatment or the wound should be avoided

- Patient with any metal in our body is not allowed
- Patient being injected with Kreotoxin in a year is not allowed to be treated
- Patient with unhealed wound is not allowed to take the treatment
- Slight red and swelling is normal phenomenon after HIFU treatment, which will be relieved several hours after treatment
- Please clean treatment area with cold water and mild cleaning products after treatment. If the redness persists, please do not touch hot water until the redness is weakened
- Do not use any exfoliator products on treatment areas in at least one week after treatment, even if the sensitive phenomenon appears until the symptom is relieved
- Wearing makeup is feasible after HIFU treatment (mineral makeup is preferred)
- Nonirritating cream may be applied after treatment. Skin regeneration set is recommended to use in combination with HIFU for ideal anti-aging treatment effects
- Please use SPF 30 or above sunscreen to avoid sunburn if you need to go out
