07 May 2024 Posted By Skinlogics

Have you been trying to gently pull up your sagging facial skin with your hands and wishing that the skin just stays there? Or does the drooping skin of your upper arms bother you? No problem, we have a non-surgical solution- HIFU treatment in Noida, to make your sagging skin firm! Many of our clients at Skinlogics have opted for HIFU for sagging skin tightening and have walked out of our clinic highly satisfied with outstandingly rejuvenated and youthful skin.

Let’s examine the particulars of HIFU for sagging skin tightening in detail so that you can make a better-informed decision.

What is HIFU?

HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. It is a non-invasive, painless method that uses ultrasound waves to direct energy to the skin's deep dermal layer and the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS). The ultrasound waves generate heat energy that causes controlled damage to the target skin cells, prompting the body to heal them by creating fresh collagen and cell regeneration. Furthermore, it improves skin elasticity and firmness, resulting in natural lifting and tightening of the skin.

At Skinlogics Clinic, we use an advanced HIFU device to tighten the sagging skin of the face and certain other body parts.

What areas can be treated with HIFU?

Common areas treated with HIFU include:

  • Full face
  • Neck
  • Decolletage
  • Forehead
  • Eyebrow (fox eyes)
  • Around the mouth
  • Double chin
  • Jaws or Jaw Line
  • Cheeks
  • Arms
  • Stomach
  • Inner thighs
  • Knees
  • Armpit fat (the unpleasant one just next to the bra).
  • Cellulite.

What are the benefits of an HIFU?

HIFU is a promising skin-tightening treatment in Noida. It is best for people seeking options to lift and tighten the sagging skin of their faces and bodies without surgery. Many people opt for HIFU as it offers the following benefits:

  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production
  • Improves, tightens, and firms muscles
  • Reduces nasolabial fold appearance  
  • Improve and tighten sagging skin (cheek, jowl, and neck) 
  • Reduces double chin appearance 
  • Reduces eye bags 
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • A cost-effective approach 
  • Best non-surgical alternative to a facelift surgery
  • No anaesthesia, sedation, needles, incisions, or risk of infection.

What are the steps of HIFU treatment? 

A HIFU treatment session will last about 1-2 hours, depending on the severity of the sagging skin and the treatment area. During the session, here is what all happens:

  1. First, a dermatologist in Noida thoroughly cleanses the skin in the treatment area to remove dust, pollutants, or extra oil from the skin pores. 
  2. To reduce discomfort or soreness, an ultrasonic gel combined with an anesthetic cream will be administered to the area just before the procedure. 
  3. Then, a HIFU device distributes ultrasound energy on the affected skin area, which is adjusted at the proper angle using a HIFU viewer. At this point, patients may experience small skin pricks, tingling, or warmth.
  4. The device's high-frequency ultrasonic beams penetrate deeper skin layers, encouraging collagen and elastin formation. Increasing these skin structural proteins (collagen and elastin) levels in the treated skin leads to tighter, firmer skin at the end of the treatment.

How does HIFU work for skin anti-ageing and rejuvenation? 

HIFU skin tightening treatments in Noida at Skinlogics use Ultraformer's 3D SkinLift. This non-invasive method uses high-intensity, targeted ultrasound to induce coagulation in the skin's lower layers. The heat generated by the micro-focused ultrasound contracts the collagen fiber network. The result is immediate tightness and collagen regeneration in the weeks following treatment. It creates a long-term skin tightening effect, providing that the results last.

The 3D SkinLift by Ultraformer treatment can last up to an hour, depending on the areas patients want to treat. All treatment options are personalized to the patient's specific requirements. Results may vary based on the patient's skin condition and type.

Who is an ideal candidate for HIFU?

The following are the eligibility requirements for HIFU treatment:

  • A confirmed decision not to undergo surgical treatment
  • The skin is sagging or loose
  • There is a need to improve the skin's texture and tone
  • There is premature ageing of the skin, resulting in concerns like mild to moderate skin laxity
  • A need to get rid of dead and damaged skin
  • A desire to have radiant, bright skin.
  • Older people with severe skin laxity, very sagging skin, or considerable photoaging may not be suitable candidates for this treatment.

Furthermore, HIFU skin sagging treatments are not recommended for individuals with metallic implants near the treatment area, cystic acne, open skin lesions, or infections.

Therefore, HIFU is not for everyone, so people should contact an experienced practitioner to determine whether the treatment is right for them.

What results to expect after HIFU?

After HIFU treatment for skin tightening, one may expect tighter, firmer skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles. Getting well-toned, younger-looking skin has always been challenging.

Some patients have immediate results; however, the overall toning and lifting effects appear two to three months after treatment because it takes time for new collagen to replace old collagen. Patients should expect positive results for up to six months after the treatment as the healing process continues.

HIFU treatments can yield results that continue for several months and even over a year. The duration of the effects varies for each individual, depending on their skin condition. Some individuals may require several treatments to attain their goals. Dermatologist in Noida at  Skinlogics recommends that all patients schedule touch-up therapies to maintain their desired results.

How do you take care of your face after HIFU?

To receive the best results from the HIFU treatment and even a smooth recovery, follow these instructions provided by an expert:

  • Use sunscreen with a high SPF content to protect the skin from sun damage. Wear sun-protective clothing along with sunscreen to prevent excessive sun exposure in the treated area. 
  • Avoid taking hot showers until the treatment's side effects have subsided. 
  • Following the treatment session, apply a moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated. 
  • Avoid strenuous activities such as running or swimming or activities that cause sweating or heating of the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What should I do before HIFU treatment? 

Avoid extensive sun exposure, as HIFU cannot be applied to sunburnt or recently tanned skin. Furthermore, avoid any substances that irritate the skin, as they may impede treatment.

2. Is there any after-care advice?

Skin experts encourage patients to limit their sun exposure and drink plenty of water. They also prescribe a serum to increase collagen production and keep the skin at optimal moisture levels.

3. How many sessions are required for HIFU skin tightening?
The number of sessions needed depends on the individual's age and skin condition. While a single procedure may be sufficient for someone with mild to moderate skin laxity, others may require additional treatment for four weeks following the first procedure.

4. What to expect after treatment, and how soon will you notice visible results?

Although HIFU can immediately affect skin texture and tone, the wound healing process takes approximately 2–12 weeks to produce complete lifting and tightening benefits that may persist for years.
