V-line HIFU Facial (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound)
HIFU is a revolutionary treatment which allows patients to acquire a V-line face shape without surgery. It is a safe, non-invasive ultrasound treatment that uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin. HIFU energy penetrates and works deep below the skin surface without harming the outer layer of skin, stimulating the body’s natural renewal of existing collagen and creation of new collagen. As a result, a gradual tightening of the skin and tissue will occur, ultimately resulting in a natural V-line face shape with youthful-looking skin. Most individuals only need one treatment. However, some may benefit from more than one treatment (depending on the degree of skin laxity they have). The final result will be seen 2-3 months after the treatment.
