Your Destination for Safe and Effective HIFU Treatment: Sakhiya Skin Clinic

HIFU Treatment

Aging is a bitter truth but nobody wants to accept it. Thanks to developed technology, experts are now able to reverse or at least slow down aging. We have a lot of treatments available for treating various skin issues, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) treatment is one of those.

HIFU is a non-surgical facelift perfect for skin rejuvenation and skin tightening. This process uses our body’s regenerative responses to tighten skin from essential areas like eyebrows, chin and neck.

What is HIFU?

HIFU treatment is a laser skin tightening method that uses ultrasound energy to do the job. This energy heats the tissues and that causes cellular damage. This ‘damage’ boosts collagen production and treats skin laxity.

HIFU has been very common for treating tumors for a long time. It’s been brought to aesthetic use just one to two decades back. It’s an amazing replacement for painful and invasive face lifting and skin tightening methods.

HIFU treatment was also approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the year 2009 for brow lifting and in 2014 for treating fine lines and wrinkles of the upper chest and neckline. Now it’s also useful for facial contouring, skin tightening and collagen production.

HIFU treatment procedure

The procedure is pretty simple and no preparation is required for treating the skin, except removing the makeup and skin care products from the specific area before the treatment.

  • The target area is cleansed by the physician and an anesthetic cream is applied topically.
  • An ultrasound gel is applied and the HIFU device is placed on the area.
  • The device is adjusted to the correct place using an ultrasound viewer.
  • Ultrasound energy is provided to the specific area in short pulses.
  • This continues for 30 to 90 minutes depending on the area size and then the device is reduced.

Benefits of HIFU

The HIFU treatment provides enormous benefits to the patients, some of which are mentioned below-

  • Non-invasive procedure

HIFU treatment is a non-invasive procedure which means that it doesn’t require incisions or invasions on the skin. It eventually reduces the risk of any complications too.

  • Minimal downtime

This is the outcome of being a non-invasive procedure. Since it doesn’t require incisions, there is no downtime and reduced recovery time. One can resume their routine work after the treatment.

  • Improved skin

The HIFU treatment improves skin texture and reduces wrinkles and fine lines. It also smooths and tightens skin around the neck, enhances the jawline and lifts the eyelids, brows and cheeks. This procedure ultimately leaves the patient with younger-looking skin.

  • Improved confidence

Since this anti-ageing treatment gives natural-looking results and also long-lasting results, it certainly improves one’s confidence and boosts morale.

  • Safe and effective

This ultrasound therapy is completely safe and effective when performed by an experienced and certified practitioner. Moreover, it doesn’t use any radiation, hence keeping all the side effects away. This focused ultrasound energy is highly effective in skin tightening.

  • Boosts collagen production

The energy developed in this treatment causes heat that triggers the collagen production and causes skin rejuvenation. It is pinpoint accurate, hence it works only on the targeted area without damaging the surrounding area.

  • Quick and convenient

HIFU treatment is super quick to perform. It takes as little as 30 minutes to perform and the maximum duration is 90 minutes, depending on the area performed. Moreover, the person can resume his daily routine just after the treatment which makes it super convenient.

HIFU treatment price

There is not a uniform price all over the country. A lot of factors affect it such as the body area to be treated, location of the clinic, skills and experience of the practitioner, consultation fees, the duration of the treatment, device used, etc.

In India, the treatment cost starts from INR 18,000 and can go up to lakhs (around 1.5L) depending on the aforementioned or any other factor. In Sakhiya, we charge INR 30,000 for the full face.
