HIFU is the only technology that can address the deep tissues for tightehing non surgically
2. How is HIFU therapy different to laser procedures?
HIFU Therapy uses sound energy (ultrasound) that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths that can not be matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. This is deep heating to tighten the skin … no other laser system can reach the same depth as HIFU
3. How does HIFU therapy stimulate collagen production?
It elevates the temperature up to 65 degree centigrade so that there is collagen contraction. The heat causes collagen to contract and get denatured resulting in shorter and thicker collagen resulting in lifting and tightening of the skin.

The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes.
