What is HIFU?

HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) technology uses high-intensity sound waves to heat tissue on the surface at various depths. The answer to the question “What is a facelift with HIFU?” is “the process of removing sagging, wrinkles, and skin tone problems from the face, neck, and cheek area using this method”." Non-surgical facelift with ultrasound HIFU tightens the skin by sending concentrated ultrasound energy waves into the deep tissue under the skin. This process increases collagen production and makes the skin look firmer.

HIFU is a non-surgical method of facial rejuvenation and is painless. During the treatment, the HIFU device is passed over the skin. The ultrasound energy is focused on the deep tissue under the skin. After the procedure, there may be some redness or swelling on the skin, but this usually subsides within a few hours. Although this is a short-term procedure, the results are permanent for a long time. After HIFU application, there is no need for special care, the person can immediately return to normal activities.

I had surgery 2 weeks ago by Dr Yucel Sarialtin. I have been to almost every doctor in Istanbul, but this doctor is so spontaneous and gives so much attention to his patient, I immediately felt good. I've had a Tummytuck 360 Lipo and BBL! What a great result I couldn't have imagined it better! Dear people please find the right doctor!!! Because I also had the same operation in 2019, but this doctor mutilated me, and Yucel Sarialtin had to correct this again, which of course makes the operation more difficult. I recommend this doctor 100%! & of course his team also lots of kisses to Buse Bayram Aysegul who helped me through this period

How is the HIFU Application Performed?

HIFU treatment with focused ultrasound begins with the examination of the area to be treated and the skin type. The HIFU device is adjusted by the treating physician to the thickness of the skin and problem areas. During the application, the head of the device is placed on the skin. Focused ultrasound energy waves are sent to the deep tissue under the skin. These waves have a warming effect on the target tissue under the skin and increase in collagen production is assured. As a result, the skin is tightened. The application steps can be listed as follows:

  • Preparation: Before the application, the patient cleans the skin and removes all makeup. In order to compare the time before and after the HIFU treatment, photos of the application area are taken.
  • Application: The procedure is performed with a special HIFU device. The device sends focused ultrasound energy waves into the deep tissue under the skin. These waves reach the target tissue and cause deep heating.
  • Duration of the session: The duration of the application can vary depending on the size of the area to be treated and the thickness of the skin. Generally, a session lasts between 30and 90 minutes.
  • Number of sessions: After the application, there may be slight redness and swelling of the skin. For this reason, the treatment may extend over several sessions, depending on the area to be treated and the skin condition of the patient. The number of sessions is determined according to the needs of the patient.

HIFU application is usually a painless procedure. Therefore, no local anesthesia is used. However, some individuals may experience mild discomfort, especially during the procedure. This may vary depending on the patient’s skin type and the characteristics of the area to be treated. If a discomfort occurs during the application, experts provide a relaxing effect by using a device that blows out cold air while the treatment continues. If the area where the focused ultrasound is applied is very large, a local anesthetic cream can be used.

For Whom Can The Non-Surgical Face Lift HIFU Be Used?

HIFU facial is particularly effective for fair to medium-aged skin. For this reason, the HIFU facelift method can be used to delay the signs of aging. Unlike other invasive methods, the HIFU method only aims to awaken the skin to function as it did when it was younger. This makes it easier to use on people with various health conditions.

HIFU application is extremely successful in people with mild to moderate skin sagging and wrinkling. However, invasive methods may have to be preferred for advanced signs of aging.

HIFU is not recommended for individuals with infections in the target area, open skin lesions, severe or cystic acne, and metal implants in the treatment area. It is also not recommended for use during pregnancy or lactation. In addition, the method may not be healthy for people with skin cancer or a history of cancer, clotting disorders, and people with pacemakers. If you tell your doctor your medical history, he or she will let you know if you are eligible for focus ultrasound.

Considerations Before HIFU

There are several things to consider and proper preparation required prior to HIFU. First and foremost, those undergoing HIFU treatment should remove makeup and cosmetic products from the area of application. Depending on the size of the area that may be treated during the procedure, it may be necessary to apply a special gel to the skin. If you suffer from allergic conditions, you should inform your doctor beforehand. You should also remove all piercings, jewelry and accessories from the area before the procedure.

If you have taken any medications prior to HIFU treatment, it is healthier to inform your doctor. If you are taking blood thinners, you must have stopped them at least 3 weeks ago. In addition, it is extremely important that you stop smoking before and after using it. Due to its negative effects on skin health, it is recommended to stop smoking at least 3 months before the procedure. As for alcohol, it is enough not to drink it until 24 hours before the procedure.

What to Do Post HIFU Treatment?

After HIFU facelift, very tiny side effects may occur, such as mild redness, swelling or tenderness on the skin. These side effects are usually temporary and disappear within a few days. However, there are still some details that you need to pay attention to in order to achieve a faster recovery. After HIFU treatment, you can apply cold compresses to reduce swelling and sensitivity of the skin. You can use an ice pack or a cloth filled with cold water for this purpose. Although it is rare, if you feel pain or discomfort, you can take the pain medication recommended by your doctor.

One of the biggest concerns for those undergoing focused ultrasound treatment is skin care and makeup after the procedure. After the HIFU procedure, it is important to take good care of your skin. Because your skin may be more sensitive for a while. You need to use products suitable for your skin to moisturize it, protect it from the sun and avoid irritation. It is also recommended not to wear makeup for a few days after a facelift. This can slow down the healing process as it can irritate your skin even more. It should also be noted that any cosmetic product you apply to your skin can increase the risk of infection.

If you need to go outside after your procedure, you can use a mineral-based sunscreen that is suitable for your skin and apply minimal makeup. You can use a light foundation to cover the redness and swelling on your face. However, you should avoid eye makeup because of the sensitivity of the eye area. It may take several weeks for your skin to heal completely after a HIFU facelift. During the healing process, it is important that you take good care of your skin and follow your doctor's recommendations.
