Next Generation HIFU Technology: What’s All the Fuss About?

Body Contouring Cynosure Skin Revitalization

There is a lot of talk about HIFU technology in the cosmetic medicine sector. Here’s why this next-generation technology has piqued the interest of professionals.

High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a revolutionary new technology that’s designed to painlessly tighten or tightens and de-volumes without the need for surgery.
In the space of a few months, patients can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, stubborn fat pockets and skin laxity without having to worry about scarring or downtime.

HIFU technology rapidly heats up the deeper layers of the skin using ultrasound energy. Once the specific temperature is reached, the results begin*. This process stimulates collagen production, resulting in tighter, firmer skin. Treatments are appropriate for patients who are concerned about mild to moderate skin laxity, stubborn fat pockets, double chin, general signs of ageing and more. Photo-damaged skin generally requires additional treatments to achieve similar results.

HIFU technology is fast becoming the preferred choice amongst patients due to its affordability, convenience, and effectiveness. Let us take a closer look at the overall benefits of incorporating HIFU systems into your clinic offerings.

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound: The Benefits

According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the demand for nonsurgical alternatives to facelifts increased by over 64 percent between 2012 and 2017.
If your clinic specialises in anti-ageing solutions, HIFU systems offer non-invasive solutions to patients who want to:

  • Reduce fine lines, wrinkles and dropping eyebrows
  • Tighten sagging skin and stubborn fat pockets on the face, neck and areas of the body such as the thighs, abdomen, arms and buttocks
  • Reduce crows’ feet and skin laxity
  • Smooth out the appearance of their skin
  • Patients value the fact that systems such as this will not interfere with their day-to-day schedules but will still help them achieve noticeable results.

  • Access tricky treatment areas. With the help of slim cartridges, ULTRAcel Q+ system offers on-the-spot convenience. Hard-to-reach areas such as the eye rim, which are far more accessible
  • Broader treatment area capabilities. Larger treatment areas can also be targeted to further accelerate treatment times

Linear shots use temperatures over 58◦c to provide bulk heating and eliminate large volumes of stubborn fat pockets
