How does the HIFU treatment work?

Under the HIFU treatment, ultrasound energy is focused to target the layers of your skin below the surface. This energy causes the body tissue to rapidly heat up. On reaching a certain temperature, the cells in that area undergo cellular damage. However, this damage stimulates them to produce higher amount of collagen, a protein providing the skin, its structure. With more collagen production, your skin becomes more firm, tight and free from wrinkles.

Do not worry; there is really no damage to the upper layers or nearby tissues of your skin. This treatment is not recommended for people with open skin lesions or infections.
