It aims to restore vitality and youth to the skin, giving it a smooth and bright appearance and tightening its wrinkles. So we will now learn

What is HIFU face lift technique?

It is a cosmetic technique approved by the “FDA” organization, by which ultrasound waves are transmitted using 3 types of probes to different depths of the skin layers, in order to heat the skin and raise its temperature to 60 degrees Celsius for a period not exceeding one second, which leads to tightening the sagging of the face and neck because of its effect on the outer layer of the ligaments and tendons and masking wrinkles. By stimulating the collagen production process, which works to regenerate skin cells and restore their freshness, which are lost with age (can be used on – chest – abdomen – buttocks), it gives immediate results. Also in places other than the face and neck (such as the arm) all can be noticed after the first session.

Advantages of HIFU

2 – The results of HIFU sessions are close to the results of surgical procedures in tightening sagging face and neck, so it is considered a suitable alternative for those who have contraindications from surgical procedures. 
3 – You do not need a recovery period, as immediately after the session, you can return to the normal life. 
4 – The sessions are painless because they only depend on raising the temperature of the skin and do not require injections.

Number and duration of sessions:
