What is HIFU?

HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. It is a non-invasive therapeutic technique that uses non-ionizing radiation to heat tissue. At low levels it can be used to increase blood flow or at higher levels it can destroy tissue such as tumours. The transducer used on HIFU devices can control the energy delivery and also the depth of penetration.

To understand the principle around the use of HIFU for beauty treatments we must first look at what we are trying to treat. The HIFU device uses a focused energy much like a magnifying glass to target focused high intensity ultrasound into tissue to heat it.

The targeted tissue for non surgical facelifts is the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System or SMAS layer. This layer is predominately Collagen and is located at different depths beneath the skin depending where on the body you are treating.
