Hifu Ultrasound

About High Frequency Ultrasound HIFU

For skin tightening, lifting, and minimizing signs of aging, High-Intensity Frequency Ultrasound (HIFU) is an advanced facial treatment that stimulates levels of collagen production and encourages skin rejuvenation at a cellular level. Because it does not require extensive recovery time, or cause scarring, it is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a safer, less-invasive and more cost-effective alternative to surgical face lifting.


At Derma Elegant Derma Aesthetics Center, we work with this high-performance technology to target common age-related concerns, including:

  • Dull or Depleted Skin

  • Facial Wrinkles

  • Fine lines

  • Neck and Chest Wrinkles

  • Photoaging

  • Post Acne Hyperpigmentation

  • Sagging Skin

  • Skin Discoloration

  • Under Eye Bags and Dark Circles

How It Works

As a skincare modality, High Frequency is able to leverage focused energy and direct it to the deeper layers of epidermal tissue. This then works to eradicate unhealthy or damaged skin cells, stimulating regeneration and repair functions, including collagen synthesis.


Because collagen is an essential component that creates volume and structure in the skin, encouraging the production of new collagen has many benefits for improving skin firmness and creating a more youthful, supple complexion. This approach also ensures that there is no damage to the superficial layers or surface of the skin.

Key Benefits of Treatment

High Intensity Frequency Ultrasound is most commonly used to treat men and women of all ages who wish to address loss of skin elasticity. As a result of rebuilding healthy collagen levels, studies have shown that HIFU can help tighten sagging skin, helping it appear smoother in areas such as the neck, décolletage, cheeks, jawline, mouth, and around the eyes.


Additionally, it has other potential benefits for improving the skin’s overall appearance including:

  • Encouraging lymphatic drainage

  • Enhancing skincare product performance

  • Improving skin tone and texture

  • Increasing cellular metabolism

  • Mild exfoliation of dead skin cells

  • Reducing the appearance of freckles, age spots, dark undereye circles, and redness

  • Refining enlarged pores

  • Stimulating circulation to nourish the skin

What to Expect

At Derma Elegance, High-Intensity Frequency Ultrasound Facials are administered by an expert technician who will consult with you first to determine the best course of treatment. Sessions of HIFU are quick and virtually painless. A typical service lasts about two hours or less.


During the procedure most clients report only a slightly warm or stinging sensation. We will also apply a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. Immediately following a HIFU session, your skin may experience mild redness, swelling, or tenderness. However, these effects are temporary and should subside within a few hours. Post-procedure, there is no downtime, so you can resume work and other activities right away.

Results from HIFU should begin to appear within a few weeks following treatment, and reach their maximum potential around the three-month mark. When addressing chronic concerns and achieving the best possible outcome, multiple sessions are typically recommended. At your appointment, our staff will discuss recommendations for follow-up visits and provide comprehensive aftercare instructions, in order to ensure your absolute best results.


Q: Is HIFU painful?
A: Most clients describe the sensation as mild to moderate tingling or warmth. Discomfort is temporary and a sign that the collagen-building process has been initiated.

Q: How many sessions are needed?
A: Many clients see results with just one session. The duration of results may vary, but typically last between 12 to 18 months. Some clients may benefit from additional sessions depending on the skin laxity and body area.

Q: Are there any side effects?
A: Side effects are minimal and typically include temporary redness, swelling, and slight tenderness in the treated areas. These symptoms are usually short-lived.


Q: From what age can one undergo this treatment?

A:Typically, individuals in their 30s or older who begin to notice signs of skin maturation and laxity are good candidates for this treatment. However, HIFU is also suitable for older individuals who are looking for non-invasive options to rejuvenate their appearance.

Q: Which parts of the face can change with HIFU treatment?

A: HIFU treatment can target various parts of the face to achieve a lifting and tightening effect. Common areas include the brow line, which can help reduce droopiness and give a more alert appearance; the cheeks, to lift and tighten for a more youthful contour; the jawline and chin, to reduce sagging and improve definition; and the neck, to decrease the appearance of loose ski
