HIFU Beauty Treatments
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.
Here at AK Aesthetics, we provide our clients with a range of different beauty treatments, including HIFU treatment. HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, which we use for a range of facial treatments for both Aesthetic and therapeutic purposes.
HIFU works by using non-ionizing ultrasonic waves in order to heat skin tissue, meaning that it can be used to increase the flow of blood or lymph, or to destroy tissue, such as tumours. At AK Aesthetics, it is used for beauty treatments such as hair removal, photorejuvenation and to alleviate dermatologic conditions such as acne.
The HIFU beauty treatment works so well that most people only require one treatment to achieve the results they desire. In cases of photorejuvenation, the technology is used to lift and tighten the skin, with top-up treatments usually only needed once a year.
In order to get the best results, it is advised that after your HIFU beauty treatment to avoid sun exposure. You should seek further advice if taking antibiotics, and stop using any skincare products that contain certain ingredients, including glycolic/ salicylic acids, benzoyl peroxide, retinol products such as Retin A, Tazorac, Triluma, Differin, and Vitamin C.
