HIFU- How Attainable are the Results?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so which we would like to assume.

With the endless amount of procedures to enhance beauty, we may wonder if these words prove true.

As a young girl growing up alongside the ever-advancing field of beauty, I often questioned these procedures and treatments, yet with a little research and well-founded results, I was sold.

I do believe beauty is in the eye of beholder, yet everyone can have the power to alter and enhance beauty to their desired beauty goals.

Let’s be real, who wouldn’t want to enhance their beauty when it has been made accessible at the tips of your fingers?

A unique example of this is HIFU Therapy.

What is HIFU Therapy?

What is HIFU and why would you know what this acronym means?

HIFU may sound very out of reach because of its prestigious title,yet the procedure is quite simple.

Contrary to most unreachable procedures for the common folk, such as myself, HIFU Therapy does not include any type of surgery or injectables of any sort.

So,what does HIFU stand for and how does it benefit me?

HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound.

HIFU is a non-surgical and non-invasive facelift that delivers heat energy to the subcutaneous tissue.(Innermost layer of the skin)

How Does it Work?

I was skeptical too, a face-lift without undergoing the knife,how is such a thing possible?

Incredible results are achieved by this heats ability to stimulate and renew skin collagen growth which results in reduced sagging skin.

The Importance of Collagen

What are the benefits of stimulating collagen growth?

First,we must understand what collagen is.

Collagen is an essential protein in our body that helps us have the elasticity and hydration our skin needs to be healthy and strong.

When we age, our collagen decreases, leading to dryer and looser skin.

Therefore, HIFU Therapy’s capability to stimulate collagen results in tighter,toned skin,enabling a non-surgical and an easily accessible face-lift.

The true achievement resulting from HIFU Therapy is its ability to use ultrasound imaging to depict and precisely address the intense level of depth below the skin that is most treated by cosmetic surgery.

The Right Candidate

What candidates are most suitable for this procedure and what are they treated for?

This procedure is most popularly used, but not limited to,for those who desire to tighten and lift areas of the skin.

The age groups range from those in their 30’s to those who are in their 60’s. 

Those in their 30’s most commonly treat portions of their skin that have become more relaxed and hope to lift and tighten any area for preventative aging measures.

Those in their 40’s through 60’s commonly treat areas that have become more noticeably laxed, of course taking into consideration the level of laxity able to be treated on.

Commonly treated areas to lift and tighten are the face, neck, and chest.

HIFU Benefits

Now it’s time for the result driven result I know you have been looking for.

The longevity of results are truly determined case by case because everybody's skin is diverse, but results have proven to last about 1 to 2 years.

Remember, achieving your skin beauty goals is a journey, so it does take time and multiple treatments if you want to maintain your desired results.

Reassuringly, most clients will be able to see results from within 2 to 3 months from the time of the first treatment as the collagen is renewed and replaced with new collagen.

Not only will you see almost instant results, but these results will continue to be made evident as the day and months pass by.


These are the reasons why it is so essential to keep in mind that we all need to individually start and/or continue our skin journey. Anyone can share their experiences and educate you on any service, but the true success is in your personal experiences.

At American Laser and Aesthetics Institute, we will be more than happy to assist you so you can make your own evaluation of HIFU Therapy.

If HIFU Therapy does not suit you, we can help you determine what skin treatment or procedure will best suit your skin concerns and needs.
