A high intensity focused ultrasound facial, or HIFU facial for short, is a noninvasive treatment for facial aging. HIFU is touted by surgeons as the way to avoid a facelift. HIFU gets deep into the tissue and does an excellent job firming up the aging jowl and neck area. The results are not as dramatic as a facelift, but they can last up to two years.
HIFU works by using ultrasound waves to heat up the deep layers of your skin. This helps to stimulate collagen production, which in turn leads to tighter, firmer skin.
