HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a new technology that can be used to perform a variety of facial and body treatments, particularly to treat skin flaccidity and volume. It is also the only technique that has been approved in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as part of cosmetic surgery of the face, neck and chest.
HIFU technology can be applied on the entire face and body, to treat skin flaccidity or to destroy fat cells in men and women of all skin types. According to the needs of the patient, the doctor will adjust the intensity and depth so that it penetrates in different levels of the skin and, therefore, it will be able to act on the fat cells or on the relaxation of the skin. It is a non-invasive and painless technique that allows you to resume normal activity after the session.
The effect of HIFU converts solid fat (adipocytes) into liquid so that our body can eliminate it naturally and, therefore, localized fat is eliminated.
