A HIFU facial has nearly countless benefits for your skin.
You can experience some slight discomfort. You may feel a slight prickly sensation from the tiny electric pulses of high-focused ultrasound energy. But this is a very safe procedure. Generally, patients do not report feeling any pain. If you are concerned about pain, our doctors will recommend you take a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug before the treatment.
There is no special preparation needed. Just remove all your make-up and cleanse your face to prepare the targeted area. If you are on certain medications that can interfere with the treatment, the doctor will recommend you to stop taking them a few days prior to the procedure.
Many patients require only one treatment session. But some can benefit from multiple sessions. Thus, the answer to this depends on how much skin laxity you have and your body’s biological response to the collagen-building and ultrasound process. After a complete check-up and study of your skin, we can recommend the number of sessions you will require.
Since your facial skin will be a little extra sensitive after the treatment, we recommend that you do not engage in strenuous exercises for a few days. Protect your skin from the sun as you leave the clinic, and do not touch your face to prevent irritation and other side-effects. You can resume your daily activities almost immediately.
