HIFU Treatment With Dr Firas 14th January 2020

HIFU Treatment With Dr Firas

Nowhere is the sting of growing older more keenly felt than on our skin. Victimised by the gradual passing of time, the skin on certain areas of our body – the face, eyes, jawline and neck to name but a few – begins to display more prominent fine lines, wrinkles and sagging in the unavoidable and distressing group of events known as the ageing process.

Yet, with the rise of aesthetic and cosmetic treatments, more and more people are discovering that ageing needn’t be a grim showcase of unsightly changes to our body. There are a range of treatments available to manage the condition and appearance of our skin and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, or HIFU for short, is leading the charge in terms of non-invasive solutions to age-old skin problems.

What is HIFU?

HIFU helps to sure up skin laxity by working with powerful bursts of ultrasound energy to target these nagging concerns. During this highly-effective treatment, the skin is tightened as a result of its layers being heated up. When the cells in the targeted area reach a certain temperature, they experience damage. This sets the stage for collagen, a naturally-occurring bodily protein, to work its magic.

As collagen assumes a large share of responsibility for keeping our skin firm, elasticated and taut, its increased presence in the skin ensures of an enhancement in definition, a reduction in wrinkles and an improvement in the tightness and smoothness across all areas.

Is HIFU for me?

As a relatively pain-free alternative to undergoing surgical facelifts, and a treatment with much less downtime, HIFU has become a viable alternative to those who have neither the time or desire to undergo lengthier forms of surgical and aesthetic intervention.

It should be noted that HIFU treatment proves most effective when used by those whose skin is only just beginning to display the confidence-sapping effects of the ageing process. For individuals with skin suffering from heavy damage or looseness, it may be advisable to bypass HIFU and move on to an alternative form of anti-ageing treatment.
