Is the HIFU lifting invisible? HiFU lifting is not only invisibly effective - but also can be performed in the shortest possible time. Immediately after the treatment in the Laser Aesthetics Institute the skin is a little tighter. The complete result and the whole effect appears within 1-4 months after the treatment.
How is the HIFU treatment tolerated?
The HIFU treatment is very well tolerated! Only a reddening of the skin directly after the treatment must be expected. Slight swelling and small hematomas are possible. A successive and therefore very natural tightening through the body's own regeneration processes. No pre- or post-treatment necessary!
Can HIFU lifting be used on the whole face?
HIFU lifting can be used all over the face even against skin sagging. The highly focused ultrasound releases a high energy in the deepest layers of the skin. During the treatment, the ultrasound head is moved evenly over the zones to be treated.
How does the HIFU enter the skin? Unlike a laser, which penetrates the skin from the outside in, HIFU bypasses the surface of the skin, focusing entirely on the deep, structural layers of the skin where collagen is accumulated. HIFU ultrasound technology works from the inside out, helping to tighten the skin non-invasively.
How long does the HIFU lift take? The first results of HIFU lifting are often visible immediately after the treatment. The final result occurs from the third to the sixth month. The result lasts up to one year and longer. Further HIFU treatments are possible at any time. At a young age, the perfect interaction of collagen and elastin keeps the skin smooth and firm.
How many focal points are set during a HIFU treatment?
Depending on the size of the treatment area, several thousand (for a facial treatment approx. 12,000 to 20,000) focal points are set in different skin layers, up to the SMAS running below the subcutis, during only one session. The intensity of a HIFU treatment can usually be adjusted to up to 2-3 J/cm².
How long does a HIFU session last? A HIFU session lasts between 20 and 90 minutes, depending on the problem area to be treated. Do not worry, the treatment is practically painless. At most, a slight tingling or pinching sensation will be felt; this is because the skin is neither injured nor otherwise affected during treatment with HIFU.
How does the HIFU treatment work? HIFU treatment stimulates the skin to produce new collagen and elastin. The natural regeneration processes of the skin are stimulated and the elasticity of the skin increases. How does HIFU lifting work? Careful cleansing of the skin area to be treated.
What is the HIFU system?
The HIFU system is a new and innovative way of non-invasive treatment of the face, neck and décolleté. The highly focused ultrasound energy stimulates and accelerates the skin's own healing process.
How does the skin react with the new HIFU technology?
With the latest HiFu technology, the skin reacts very quickly. With the rapid regeneration of so-called collagen and elastin, the loss of elasticity is counteracted. As a non-invasive treatment for facial tightening, HiFu is one of the most effective therapies.
What is 3D HIFU ultrasound device?
The 3D HiFu ultrasound device is the latest 3D HiFu ultrasound technology on the market today. Designed for stationary use, the device works quickly and effectively - a must for optimal treatment!
How long does the HIFU ultrasound lift take?
The actual results of HIFU ULTRASONIC LIFTING are expected 3 to 6 months after the treatment. HIFU ULTRASONIC LIFTING treatment lasts between 20 minutes and 90 minutes, depending on the size of the skin area to be treated.
How long does the HIFU treatment last? HIFU treatment achieves excellent results that last for a long time (3 to 5 years). The treatment convinces with long-term results with immediate effect. Therefore, only 1 - 2 sessions are necessary. The result lasts very long, about 3 to 5 years. The result can be supported by a healthy lifestyle.
How does the HIFU lifting treatment affect the skin? The new formation of collagen and elastin in the deep, structural layers of the skin is stimulated by the HIFU Lifting treatment. The skin looks younger, smoother & firmer. The HIFU Lifting procedure acts on the deep structures of the skin, especially on the top muscle layer of the skin (SMAS).
How can HIFU therapy be applied?
HIFU can be applied either with palliative (non-healing) intent, for tumor shrinkage, pain reduction, etc., or with the intent to shrink the tumor and thus make it resectable. Whether HIFU therapy is applicable to a patient must be assessed individually in each case.
How can I urinate after HIFU treatment? By means of a planing (TUR-P) performed together with the HIFU therapy, most patients are able to urinate satisfactorily again after only one week. After months or years, a reduction in urine flow may occur, which may even be worse than immediately after HIFU treatment.
What are the requirements for HIFU treatment? Hematoma formation may also occur if larger vessels are touched during the application. The most important prerequisites for protection against undesirable side effects during HIFU treatment are the correct posture and movement of the handpiece and knowledge of and adherence to the danger zones, especially in the facial area.
What are the ultrasonic waves at the Hifu? The ultrasound waves used in HIFU are many times more energetic than the ultrasound waves used in diagnostic ultrasound, which has been known for many years. This bundling of energy is achieved by a special "transducer" that can concentrate the sound waves into an area the size of a millimeter.
How can HIFU lifting be used?
Hifu lifting can be used all over the face and also on the body against age-related skin sagging and for wrinkle treatment. The highly focused ultrasound releases its high energy in the deep layers of the skin. This leads to an increase in the production of collagen and elastin.
How long does a HIFU treatment take?
With only one treatment and the lasting effect, the important collagen is gradually formed. Therefore, the treatment by HIFU is often necessary only once or twice and works up to a year. Your assistance and care of the skin is very important.
How long does HIFU treatment take in the hospital? The stay in the hospital after HIFU treatment usually lasts three to seven days. During the daily ward rounds, the control appointments for tissue sampling (biopsies) and for the blood tests to determine the PSA values should be coordinated.
Can it come after the treatment with HIFU?
Immediately after treatment with HIFU, a pseudo-tightening of the skin may occur, as the collagen fibers contract due to the heat emitted. Although this effect is very much welcomed, it is not the goal of treatment.
What is the HIFU treatment supposed to do?
The "High-intensity focused Ultrasound" treatment - HIFU for short - is now finally supposed to lift the face, including sagging skin, completely without a scalpel and blood. So forget about thread lifts or a conventional facelift. With a face lift or a general skin tightening with HIFU, there are no incisions, scars or surgical pain.
How to prevent HIFU? Regular use of painkillers, cortisone preparations and chemotherapeutic agents inhibits the desired cell activity and regeneration processes and can prevent a satisfactory result. Sunbathing (including solarium) and smoking also have a negative effect on the final result of HIFU.
What is HIFU for skin aging? Although this effect is highly appreciated, it is not the treatment goal. HIFU aims to stimulate collagen synthesis, as the density of collagen fibers is a parameter of skin aging, i.e. the denser the collagen fibers, the greater the elasticity of the skin and the more youthful the appearance.
