Facelift... Without the Knife
14 Jun 2016
There is an alternative to going under the knife.........
High-intensity focused ultrasound
HIFU is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to actually lift skin. HIFU is also the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited to where it will be most beneficial.
Can HIFU replace a facelift ?
HIFU treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won\'t duplicate the results of a facelift. However, HIFU is a great alternative for those not ready for surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
