High Intense Focused ultrasound (HIFU - ultherapy) is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment. The aim is to treat wrinkles and sagging of the skin by sound waves.
It is possible to reach various layers of the skin with focused ultrasound. While HIFU has a technology that can penetrate deeper layers than laser light and radiofrequency waves, it does not cause any side effects in the upper layers during application. Thus, severe redness and scaling is not observed following treatment. The idea is to create heat energy in deeper layers by sound waves in order to increase collagen synthesis and tighten and regenerate the skin.
HIFU is a method effective to treat sagging in the facial and neck area and can be performed at any season. Since collagen increase will continue after treatment, maximum effect is seen in 2-3 months. A HIFU application of one session is generally enough. People can resume daily activities immediately after treatment.
