More About:

HIFU - high-intensity focused ultrasound

Preparation: The treatment area will be cleansed and marked for targeted delivery of the ultrasound energy.

Treatment: The technician will use the 3D-Hifu device to deliver precise pulses of ultrasound energy to specific skin layers. You may feel a warm tingling sensation during the treatment.

Aftercare: Your skin may be slightly flushed or red after the treatment, but these effects usually subside quickly. We will provide specific aftercare instructions, like avoiding sun exposure and harsh skincare products.

While generally safe, potential risks and complications include:

  • Temporary redness, swelling, or bruising
  • Pain or discomfort (rare)
  • Temporary nerve sensitivity (rare)

Following proper aftercare instructions can minimize these risks.

How Does

The focused ultrasound energy from the 3D-Hifu device heats targeted tissues deep within the skin, stimulating collagen production. This new collagen plumps up the skin, creating a lifting and tightening effect. Additionally, HIFU can target specific areas to address concerns like wrinkles and jowls.

Before & After


Here are some frequently asked questions, cant find an answer? Get in touch and we will be happy to help!

Will HIFU with 3D-Hifu hurt?

Most people experience minimal discomfort during the treatment, often described as a warm tingling sensation. The technician can adjust the energy levels for added comfort, and some clinics offer topical anesthetic cream. Remember, everyone's pain tolerance varies, so be sure to communicate your comfort level with your doctor.

How long do the results of HIFU with 3D-Hifu last?

The results can last for 1-2 years, but they gradually fade over time as your body's natural aging process continues. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, using sunscreen regularly, and considering occasional maintenance treatments can help you enjoy the lifted and rejuvenated appearance for longer.

How long does it take to see results from HIFU with 3D-Hifu?

You might see subtle improvements in skin tightness within a few weeks as collagen starts to build. However, the full results, with significant lifting and wrinkle reduction, typically take 2-3 months as collagen production increases. Be patient and remember, individual results may vary depending on your skin and treatment goals.
