Effectiveness of HIFU: For Facial Contouring

HIFU Treatment in Bangalore also called HIFU Facelift for facial sculpting & tightening is performed by Dr. Rasya Dixit.

High-Intensity Facial Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that uses ultrasonic energy to stimulate collagen and elastin formation within the skin, causing it to tighten. It adds structure to the face by improving facial features, making them more appealing, and smoothing symptoms of ageing such as lines and wrinkles. As a result, HIFU treatment is sometimes known as a 'HIFU facial' or a 'HIFU facelift.'

It provides transformative results to many patients opting for this treatment at the clinic for skin rejuvenation, glow, and tightening.

Benefits of HIFU Treatment

  • Non-invasive: HIFU is a non-invasive treatment that does not necessitate incisions or surgery. It reduces the possibility of complications and shortens the healing time.
  • Safe: When done by experienced skin doctors, HIFU is a safe treatment. Since the procedure does not involve radiation, the risk of side effects is reduced.
  • Effective: HIFU is an excellent treatment for skin tightening, fine line and wrinkle reduction, and lifting sagging skin. The effects are long-lasting and visible soon after treatment.
  • HIFU stimulates collagen production: Collagen is a protein that keeps the skin supple and firm. The general appearance and health of the skin can be improved by increased collagen production.
  • Versatile: HIFU can treat various body parts, including the face, neck, and chest.
  • Quick: HIFU therapy is a fast and efficient treatment option because it typically takes 30 to 60 minutes.
  • Minimal recovery time: HIFU treatment in Bangalore doesn't need any recovery time, patients can resume regular activities immediately.

Who needs HIFU treatment?

A HIFU facelift is very popular among women over the age of 28 who have symptoms of ageing, such as wrinkles, under-eye creases, and fine lines. If an individual wants to get rid of similar problems. In that case, a HIFU non-surgical facelift in Bangalore is the treatment for them because it helps minimise signs of ageing and allows people to feel more confident in their appearance. People with a double chin who seek a painless and pleasant solution to get rid of it prefer HIFU treatment.

How does HIFU work?

An ultrasound transducer creates high-frequency sound waves focused on a specific target tissue in the HIFU system. These sound waves generate tremendous heat in the target tissue, resulting in thermal ablation or tissue destruction.

The HIFU technique involves a computer-controlled system that targets the affected area while leaving healthy tissue alone. The patient rests on a table during the procedure, and an ultrasound gel is put on the skin to help channel the sound waves.

The ultrasonic transducer is applied to the skin, and sound waves are guided to the desired tissue. The sound waves heat kills the targeted tissue, which is then reabsorbed by the body.

How does HIFU help with face contouring?

The skin contains a protein called collagen that keeps it supple and tight. Collagen production decreases with age, which causes the development of wrinkles, sagging skin, and fine lines. HIFU promotes the production of new collagen for tightening and lifting the skin and decreasing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

A handheld device that generates high-frequency ultrasound waves is positioned on the skin during the procedure. These waves reach the deeper layers of the skin, heating them and promoting collagen formation. Although most patients don't feel pain throughout the process, others may feel discomfort.

HIFU treatment's effects are visible immediately, but the total products may take several months to manifest while collagen formation continues. The procedure is usually considered safe, with few side effects and no downtime or recovery period required.

HIFU can be used to treat both the face and the body. It includes the following: 

  • Face 
  • Neck
  • Under eyes 
  • Arms
  • Belly 
  • Upper back area

  • Buttocks
  • Legs.

Overall, HIFU is an excellent alternative for people who wish to tighten their skin and improve their appearance without invasive procedures. Results may vary depending on individual characteristics, and numerous treatments may be required for optimal results.

How can I prepare for a HIFU?

  • Certain precautions should be taken before treatment to achieve the best results.
  • Drink enough water and use proper skincare products to hydrate the skin.
  • Avoid sun exposure and regularly apply sunscreen. It should be done at least a week before the surgery to avoid sunburn.
  • For approximately one month before the treatment, refrain from consuming alcohol or smoking cigarettes.
  • Wearing heavy makeup or moisturiser on the day of treatment may interfere with attaining the best results.

HIFU Procedure

HIFU treatment is a straightforward procedure that involves the following steps:

Step 1: An aesthetician begins by cleansing the area to be treated.

Step 2: A gel is subsequently applied to the desired area, allowing the ultrasonic waves to penetrate the skin while protecting the surrounding tissue.

Step 3: A portable device regularly delivers ultrasonic radiation to the target region. The ultrasonic energy produces collagen and elastin to stimulate the inner layers of the skin that tighten, smooth, and supple the skin.

Depending on the extent of the skin sagging, each HIFU session might last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. When ultrasound energy is delivered to the skin, most patients experience a little discomfort in the form of a prickling or stinging sensation. The aestheticians will make sure that patients feel comfortable throughout the procedure. If patients are experiencing pain that they cannot handle, they can always seek pain medication.


The effects of HIFU treatment are not immediately noticeable, but the skin will look and feel slightly tighter. The skin will tighten, and the results will become more visible as collagen production continues over the next few weeks. Up to six treatments in a one-month gap are recommended for best results.
