Hifu for Facelift
As the name suggests, HIFU or High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound uses ultrasonic energy to heat the tissues below the skin’s surface at the dermis layer. As your skin cells reach a specific temperature, they sustain damage. While this may sound aggressive, this damage forces your cells to produce more collagen (a component that provides the skin’s texture). Increased production of collagen helps with healthier and tighter skin. HIFU is considered a safe treatment because the ultrasound energy targets only the affected tissue and not the surrounding skin, nerves, and muscles. This way, HIFU will not cause any damage to the upper layers of their skin.
A HIFU facial treatment uses ultrasound to create thermal energy deep in the skin. This heat damages targeted skin cells, causing the body to try to repair them. To do this, the body produces collagen to aid in cell regrowth. Collagen is a substance in the skin that gives it structure and elasticity. The doctors usually recommend this procedure for people aged 30 or who experience visible aging signs. But older adults with intense sagging skin are not ideal for a HIFU ultrasound. Instead, a face-lift surgery would yield better results, as their skin damage has gone beyond repair. An alternative to surgical facelifts, HIFU is an anti-aging skin treatment that is FDA approved. Some of the benefits of HIFU for a facelift are:
- tighten the skin on the neck
- reduce the appearance of jowls
- lift drooping eyelids or eyebrows
- smooth wrinkles on the face
- smooth and tighten chest skin
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser treatments benefit various skin issues, concerns, and imperfections, including early and general aging signs. Laser skin resurfacing is a skin treatment that removes the damaged outer layer of the skin with the help of laser technology. On the basis of your individual needs, our experts at Cutera Aesthetics offer various ablative and non-ablative laser skin resurfacing treatments. We provide incomparable services and cater to all major anti-aging needs of our customers.
Ablative laser treatments resurface the skin and treat more in-rooted skin issues, such as scars, dynamic wrinkles, and other severe aging signs. On the other hand, non-ablative lasers do not remove the skin’s outer surface. Instead, these lasers treat skin issues that reach down to capillaries. Skin redness, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation are some treatable skin conditions. Other treatable conditions with laser skin resurfacing are:
- age spots
- acne scars
- fine lines and wrinkles
- crow’s feet
- sagging skin
- uneven skin tone
- enlarged pores
- Skin creases and folds
The beam of light used in ablative lasers destroys and removes the outer layer of the skin. But non-ablative lasers reach under the skin depths and target problem areas by targeting the skin pigment and addressing the concerns. There are no severe skin side effects associated with laser skin resurfacing. However, some of the common side effects after laser skin resurfacing are:
These skin treatments take less than an hour to deal with visible signs of aging. Based on skin concerns, the results vary from one patient to another.
