HIFU VS Traditional Facelift Surgeries
HIFU treatment is a non surgical facelift procedure, whereas a surgical procedure is performed by the surgeons to improve the appearance of the face by removing and adjusting the parts of muscle tissues around the neck and face. The surgical procedure is risky as face treatment with the knife puts the life at risk, and a longer time is required for healing. It may also cause some scars and medical complications and the results may not look natural.
In this treatment, soundwaves are used that are of high frequency and human beings cannot hear them. In this treatment radio frequency, sound waves are also used that are having fewer frequencies.
These soundwaves safely and easily penetrate the skin and boost up the production of collagen in different skin layers. Resultantly, there will be gradual effects of tightening and lifting in response to the stimulation.
This treatment is completely noninvasive and there is no need for any injectables and surgery. HIFU treatment causes the stimulation of natural skin processes and offers younger looks. It gives positive results in less time and many people have reported the best results after getting this treatment.
