Get better and rejuvenate your life with HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) Face Tightening Therapy/HIFU for Skin Lifting in Delhi, India is done under supervision of Dr. Sandeep Bhasin an experienced Cosmetic Surgeon
This article aims at understanding what HIFU is all about as well as the technology that is used and its medical applications.
There has been a significant traction in the world of medical technology in the past decade, doctors, engineers, chemists and many other individuals from the world of medicine have achieved breakthroughs that have managed to treat and reduce signs and symptoms of fatal diseases. To name a few, be it HIV treatment, targeted cancer therapies, laparoscopic surgery, HPV vaccines, face transplants and many other medical discoveries.
Amidst all these findings, HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) has been a prominent practice by licensed practitioners to treat cancer as well as use this treatment of cosmetic uses such as face or skin lifting.
The prime use of this technology was the treatment of prostate cancer. This therapy is called noninvasive and it can be used to treat tumors that are formed deep inside the body. This therapy uses high intensity or frequency sound waves to treat the affected areas in the body.
A high intensity focused ultrasound wave does not affect other parts of the body, it is only targeted to treat the affected area. Unlike other treatments, this one can be used to treat a single tumor, and not a widespread diagnosis.
The clinical applications of this technology can be extended to the brain as well as liver, but this is still under research and will be available for complete use in the future. The major consequences of HIFU are intense heat generation due to high intensity ultrasound beams and the absorption of acoustic energy by the affected area.
Coherent beam focusing minimizes the damage to the tissues, these are thermal effects, mechanical effects include cavitation- the motion of a gas cavity in the acoustic field. This occurs due to the alternate compression and expansion of the tissue.
Another phenomenon is micro streaming, a procedure where cavitation becomes stable and it produces high shear force that is close to the bubble and disrupts cell membrane, the last one would be radiation forces that are developed when a wave is absorbed or reflected.
This force presses against the affected area and produces radiation pressure. Thus, it can be used to treat Kidney cancer, Primary and Secondary Liver Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Bladder Cancer. This therapy has minimalistic side effects such as discomfort for a few days, skin soreness, urinary incontinence, etc. More than 90% of the patients are treated successfully with this technology.
The cosmetic application is HIFU therapy for lifting, this procedure uses high intensity acoustic energy that produces heat for skin lifting. This is again a noninvasive technology used by licensed practitioners for lifting wherein the healing process is completely natural and tighten the lose skin on the neck, face, under the chin, stomach, & stretch marks.
It penetrates deeper depths at high temperatures and treats the foundation or dermis layers of the skin, these are the layers where the skin starts to weaken and become loose. Cellular friction and coherent heating are the main principles behind this therapy. Over a period of 3 to 6 months, this process stimulates tissue healing, lifting and tightening.
This is followed by an application of a topical cream, the advantages of this treatments are patients can return back to normal after the procedure without any requirements or restrictions. Post treatment can cause a bit of redness and tenderness.
HIFU therapy for face is the most popular amongst individual who want to beautify their facial outlook for a brighter, firmer face structure.

Results visibility would also vary between three to six months*.
It can vary from one to three sessions, but mostly only one session or treatment is enough.
A good candidate would be healthy individual over the age of 60 years, and someone who has drooping skin and wants to beautify their face with skin tightening or lifting.
From what we have seen above, we can naturally conclude that HIFU or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is one of the best and safe ways to treat cancer or skin and face lifting issues for people all over the globe. Affordability and result oriented output of this technology has made it quite popular for celebrities and individuals who wish to look young and fresh.
