HI-FU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Hi-Fu face (BGHFGZ002) Each HIFU device has three different energy elements for a correct treatment at three depths: Surface Dermis (1.5mm): smoothes wrinkles, promotes superficial neocollagenogenesis (OPTIONAL) Deep Dermis (3mm): facial lifting and skin regeneration through the production of collagen and elastin SMAS Connective Tissues (4.5mm): produces toning and lifting of mimic muscles that lose tone with the passing of the years. Body Remodeling (up to 13mm) (OPTIONAL)
The HIFU system works with high intensity focused ultrasounds; it is a non invasive and non-surgical treatment able to induce a facial lifting effect without damaging the skin surface. This new technology succeeds in concentrating the action of ultrasounds at 3 different depths in order to obtain effects on the reticular dermis, causing protein denaturation of collagen and stimulating fibroblasts to produce new collagen. Moreover, this technology does not damage the skin and the subcutaneous layer, but creates an area of deep thermal denaturation with consequent contraction (tightening) of the border muscle area. The zone is tightened causing a very evident lifting effect as it acts where surgeons perform manual tensioning during the operation. Hifu is the high energy focused ultrasound instrument for non-surgical face and neck lifting. Specific treatment of tissue relaxation and aging.
Thanks to HIFU technology (focused ultrasounds of high precision and high frequency) the skin and subcutaneous layer are not damaged but a zone of thermal denaturation is created in the deep dermis with consequent contraction (tightening) of SMAS (Superficial Aponeurotic Muscular System), and modernization of collagen. One of the main consequences of facial ageing is the progressive reduction of superficial and deep fat which decreases the compactness and definition of facial features. The face loses tone, cheekbones lose volume, cheeks and lips are reduced and the jaw no longer has its definition. The non-surgical lifting can be performed through this innovative ultrasonic system that allows the treatment of facial wrinkles and counteracts the natural relaxation of the skin.
The system adopts a handpiece with an ultrasonic transducer properly placed in contact with the patient's skin. Thanks to these systems it is possible to improve skin texture, tone and brightness in just a few sessions, acting in such a way as to stimulate the natural cellular mechanism of tissue repair and regeneration. The physician has the possibility to calibrate the frequency, power and emission mode of the ultrasound appropriately, based on the patient's characteristics, the intensity of the treatment and the area to be treated. The action of ultrasound allows effective treatments to be carried out in depth, so as to visibly reduce fine wrinkles and skin laxity of the face and neck. HIFU 1.5 mm The most superficial focus strikes at a depth of 1.5 mm. It therefore generates an effect on the dermis similar to that of a fractional laser but with the fundamental difference that it does not touch the skin surface (epidermis). This depth is used for the restructuring of the dermis in the treatment of wrinkles. In some cases the 1.5 mm treatment is combined with the 3 mm treatment to obtain an even more effective result. HIFU 3 mm The focus of intense ultrasound at a depth of 3 mm aims to denature collagen fibres that have lost their natural elasticity over the years. The dermis then regenerates new elastic collagen fibres and the skin is more toned. The final result can be observed after a couple of months but the firming process can be progressively evaluated. HIFU 4.5 mm Hifu focusing at 4.5 mm aims to create a series of small thermal traumas in the SMAS muscle (superficial muscular aponeurotic system). This muscle fascia as a response to the action of focused ultrasound produces a retraction that lifts the structure of the face. Thanks to this new technology it is possible to perform a muscle lifting in a completely non-invasive way. This technology was born in other surgical fields and only very recently it has been designed to be used in aesthetic medicine. Compared to laser and radiofrequency technology, which act within the first 2 millimeters of depth, it can focus the energy derived from ultrasound much deeper and with a very high degree of precision. The depth range of Hifu technology is between 1.5 millimetres for the facial areas and 13 millimetres for the body areas.
