HIFU stands for high intensity focused ultrasound and is an innovative, painless and non-invasive way to reduce wrinkles that lasts up to two years and is skin-friendly. Additional applications include face and brow lifting, tightening of the connective tissue and cellulite treatment. Highly concentrated ultrasound waves penetrate deep into the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production. 20% of the result can be seen immediately after the treatment. 3-6 months later, the final result is visible.
The highly focused ultrasound activates and accelerates the body’s own healing process in the face, neck and décolletage areas and thereby helps sagging skin to tighten itself and become more firm. This method requires no creams, no artificial filler products or toxins. It relies solely on the body’s natural regenerative capacity. Since the treatment targets deeper layers, the surface of the skin is not affected. After the treatment, you can simply go about your usual activities.
The Ultrasound Therapy procedure stimulates collagen production via a targeted input of ultrasound energy into the deep tissue layers of the skin. This warms the tissue, which in turn triggers a natural skin response that initiates a regenerative process through the production of neo-collagen.
Lasers generally target the uppermost layers of the skin (e.g., to counteract fine lines, wrinkles, and changes in pigmentation). The Ultrasound Therapy HIFU procedure bypasses the skin’s surface and focuses entirely on the deep, structural layers of the skin where collagen is deposited.
The Ultrasound Therapy HIFU treatment is completely painless.

THE TREATMENT PROCESS
The ultrasound probe is evenly moved over the treatment areas in order to allow the high intensity focused ultrasound waves to reach the underlying connective tissue and generate the desired skin-tightening effects. The overlying skin layers remain unaffected, which means the lifting can be carried out gently and without a trace.
This gentle form of lifting can be used on the entire face to counteract sagging skin. The following areas are ideal for treatment: the neck region, chin, cheeks and eyebrow area. During a session, an individual area can be treated or all areas can be treated at once.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
A single treatment takes between 30 minutes and 2.5 hours, depending on the area to be treated.
After treatment, you can immediately resume your normal activities because the skin’s upper layers are not damaged by the high intensity ultrasound. In some cases, slight redness or swelling may occur, which will quickly subside. There may also be a slight sensitivity to touch and light tingling sensation, which can persist for a few weeks. In very rare cases, bruising and temporary local numbness may occur. These side effects disappear after a few days.
