HIFU stands for high-intensity focused ultrasound. We use HIFU to lift the face and neck non-surgically. It is a relatively new skin tightening treatment that is very effective, non-invasive, and pain-free skin tightening treatment. This treatment incorporates an ultrasound technique to cure loosened skin.
HIFU was FDA-approved to lift brows in 2014. The procedure can be used for skin tightening, facial rejuvenation, contouring, etc.
HIFU covers the treatment area 10 lines at one time (treatment width of 10 mm). Ultherapy covers only one line at a time (1 mm width), which makes it more difficult to cover the treatment area uniformly to get a good coverage and therefore obtain good results.
Once the treatment is complete, both methods produce results. The skin looks more supple, lifted, and brighter.
