High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a relatively new cosmetic treatment for skin tightening that some consider a noninvasive and painless replacement for face lifts. It uses ultrasound energy to encourage the production of collagen, which results in firmer skin.
HIFU puts aging skin back in its place — without a surgical facelift. Sagging skin gives tired-looking eyes and distorts the contours of the face at the chin and neck. It lifts and tightens skin for a non-surgical face lift and neck lift.
Prerequisite: Level 3 Anatomy and Physiology
Assessment Method: Written Assessment
COURSE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), HIFU and other nonsurgical alternatives to facelifts have seen a major increase in popularity over the last few years. The total number of procedures performed has increased 64.8 percent between 2012 and 2017.
HIFU has many aesthetic benefits, including:
- wrinkle reduction
- tightening sagging skin on the neck (sometimes called turkey neck)
- lifting the cheeks, eyebrows, and eyelids
- enhancing jawline definition
- tightening of the décolletage
- smoothing the skin
