Which Areas Can Be Treated With HIFU?
Skin laxity is more of a problem as we get older. While you might successfully maintain a youthful complexion, unwanted wrinkles and fine lines can detract from that and pull the focus to your uneven skin texture. Thanks to leading aesthetic technologies, skin tightening procedures have advanced far beyond surgery, meaning you can achieve a firmer tone without the need for invasive techniques. HIFU is a good example and one that is extremely popular for treating mild laxity with highly effective results.
Are you a suitable candidate for HIFU treatment? Let’s take a look at just some of the possible applications of this pioneering skin tightening treatment option.
Neck And Décolletage
Compared to the skin on your face, the skin on your neck and décolletage is especially thin and delicate. This area also produces less collagen than the face, but despite all of this, many people tend to neglect it in terms of skincare and aesthetics. Because of this, this area is often a giveaway of a person’s true skin age, especially if they are suffering from sagging and crepey texture, which is sometimes referred to as ‘turkey neck’. Dr Firas can recommend a treatment plan that encompasses the face, neck and décolletage as a whole and HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is often among his personalised skin rejuvenation plans at his Harley Street Clinic.
Similarly to the neck and décolletage, the skin around the eyes is very thin. In fact, it’s thinner on your eyelids than anywhere else on your body. One of the fantastic things about HIFU is that it is gentle enough to treat even the most delicate of areas using a precise handpiece for a more intricate level of care. The eyes are often one of the first places to show the signs of premature ageing and this type of treatment is ideal for eyelid skin tightening, as well as for creating a smoother appearance around the crow’s feet and the eyebrows.
Cheeks And Jawline
Alongside minimising the appearance of fine lines, HIFU can be used to create more shape and definition along the jawline, while also lifting the cheeks. Sagging skin in these areas can lead to unsightly jowls but HIFU can help to restore a firmer and tighter appearance.
Lower Abdomen And Thighs
Aside from areas around the face, HIFU is also suitable for treating a number of areas across the body. Exercise alone sometimes isn’t enough to tighten areas such as the abdomen, thighs and arms in someone has ‘bingo wings’. For those who are struggling to regain their pre-pregnancy body or finding it difficult to tone up after a significant weight loss, HIFU can give you the boost you need.
HIFU Skin Tightening With Dr Firas
As mentioned above, HIFU is a non-invasive skin tightening procedure that uses targeted ultrasound energy to stimulate the production of collagen within the body. This is a youthful protein that diminishes with age, therefore naturally encouraging its production leads to increasingly firmer skin. Dr Firas targets deeper skin tissues without damaging the outer layers, making for a surprisingly comfortable yet effective treatment.
