Nothing but glowing skin and summer smiles with HIFU

As the mercury starts climbing to record-breaking temperatures, the world comes out of the slumber of cold winter months and flocks toward spending more time outdoors and getting the coveted golden skin-kissed glow. However, summer is also the time when the outpour of UVA and UVB rays bring a big load of troubles for our skin such as premature photoaging, hyperpigmentation, freckles, actinic keratoses, etc. 

According to the research done by the Skin Cancer Foundation, UV rays are one of the primary reasons behind the formation of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Summer sun can further exacerbate this issue if you’re already struggling with saggy, wrinkled skin. However, with the advancement of technology, HIFU has emerged as a knight in shining armor in this battle against the summer woes. High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound is a skin treatment that can help you tackle signs of aging and ensure that your skin stays as bright and vibrant as your summer spirit.

What is HIFU?

HIFU is a non-invasive skin treatment that tightens, smoothens, and firms up your skin. As the name suggests, it uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to warm up the tissues in the treatment area. This heat creates a thermal injury which tricks your body to go into repair mode and creates new collagen and elastin fibers.

One of the most sought-after characteristics of this treatment is that it can target different depth levels of your skin, from the top layer down to the SMAS which is a mesh that lays over the top of your facial muscles. This results in a tighter, firmer, and smoother skin. 

Apart from its skin-tightening benefits, this procedure also promotes collagen production in the skin which delivers a more youthful and glowing appearance. Collagen is an essential protein that is naturally produced in the body and is responsible for giving the skin its elasticity and firmness. However, as we age, the collagen production in our body decreases, leading to the formation of wrinkles and sagging skin. HIFU can reverse the onslaught of these undesirable traits by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. 

How does HIFU work?

HIFU utilizes focused ultrasound energy to target the layers of the skin just below the surface. It can reach both the dermis and the superficial muscular aponeurotic system. These are the same layers that surgeons target during a conventional facelift surgery. The ultrasound energy causes the tissues to heat up. Once the cells in the targeted area reach a certain temperature, it stimulates the cells to produce collagen. This increase in collagen results in tighter, firmer skin with fewer wrinkles and fine lines. Since HIFU beams are focused on the tissue sites below the skin’s surface, no damage occurs to the upper layers of the skin or adjacent tissues. 

This procedure works best on people who are above 30 and have moderate skin laxity. This treatment is likely to be ineffective if your skin is very lax or ‘saggy’. However, your physician should be making the final call on whether this treatment is a good option for you or not. It is also not recommended for people with skin lesions, severe sun damage, metallic implants, or severe acne. As an anti-aging treatment, HIFU results continue to improve up to 3 months after your last session and final results can last for up to 1-2 years. 

Why is HIFU a good choice for your summer skincare regimen?

  1. Banishes your wrinkles

    HIFU is a safe and effective treatment for sculpting your face and banishing wrinkles. This was proven in several small clinical trials by the US FDA, where a considerable number of people were able to see satisfactory results after their procedure. HIFU is an excellent solution for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. By stimulating collagen production in the body, HIFU restores your youthful complexion by giving you a smoother, more plump canvas. 

  2. Delivers a sculpted look

    HIFU employs intense ultrasound waves to destroy fat cells under the skin layer, this results in a better-defined facial appearance. If you’re struggling with saggy skin, the collagen production invoked by this treatment  can help you in tightening and firming up the skin. If you’re someone who has excess fat under the chin that gives a double-chin appearance, then HIFU can be used to destroy fat cells under the skin layers and deliver a sculpted and taut look.

  3. Quick and easy procedure

    HIFU is a non-invasive procedure that doesn’t involve any incisions or anesthetics. It is a safe treatment when performed by a qualified professional. One of the reasons why this treatment is so popular is because there are no adverse side effects of this procedure and you can resume your daily activities right after your session. You may experience some pinkness, redness, or mild swelling after your appointment but these symptoms subside quickly. In just 30-90 minutes, you’ll have a beautifully sculpted, smooth look, which makes this procedure the perfect lunchtime treatment for people with busy schedules. 

  4. Natural, long-lasting results

    One of the reasons behind the popularity of this procedure is that it deploys the body’s natural resources like collagen. In addition, the natural procedure enables people to look like an enhanced version of themselves. In one study published by the US National Institute of Health, 94% of people reported significant improvement in skin laxity at the three-month follow-up visit. Unlike traditional face-lift surgeries that leave a ghastly scar, HIFU delivers gradual, natural-looking improvements over the course of 3 months and makes you look refreshed rather than artificially enhanced. 


As the summer sun shines its golden rays upon us, the last thing you should be feeling is self-conscious about your skin. Whether it’s loose jowls or crepey skin on the arms and thighs, saggy skin can erode your confidence when the layers come off and swimsuits come out. This summer, instead of avoiding poolside gatherings or shying away from beach outings, embrace the joys of the season with HIFU. With its remarkable benefits, including skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, and natural-looking results, this treatment offers a non-invasive path to coax your skin into better health and reveal your most beautiful self.
