What Areas Can HIFU Be Used On?
You’ve exercised and eaten well for ages, but you just can’t seem to get rid of those bat wings under your arms. When you look at pictures of yourself in short-sleeved shirts, that sagging skin drives you crazy.
You know that High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive way to treat wrinkles and firm up sagging skin in the face. But can it be used on other parts of the body?
It can! HIFU treatment areas are not limited to the face and neck. Let’s take a look at what other areas of the body can benefit from this technology.
What Areas Can Be Treated With HIFU?
When people think of a HIFU treatment, facial procedures often come to mind first. This is not surprising, since the signs of ageing skin are most obvious on our faces.
Face areas are some of the most commonly treated sites with surgery and injections. People seeking a safe, non-invasive option will also use HIFU for these areas. While a HIFU facial may be one of the most common treatments people get, other areas are popular as well.
Other treatment sites include the neck and eyebrows. You can even use HIFU to treat a double chin. Other popular HIFU for face treatments include the cheeks and mouth. Many people also use HIFU to tighten sagging décolletage skin.
Other HIFU Treatment Areas
HIFU isn’t only used for anti-ageing treatments. Many skincare facilities offer HIFU body sculpting as well. The skin-tightening properties can be life-changing for people who have lost weight and have sagging skin as a result.
And sometimes age and genetics just make the skin a little extra saggy or wrinkly, and you’d feel better with some body contouring. Luckily, HIFU treatments can be safely applied to most parts of the body.
People use HIFU to treat the post-baby “mummy tummy” as well as love handles. You can also have treatments done on the inner and outer thighs to tighten up skin from weight loss or ageing.
You can treat back fat and sagging skin on the back with HIFU. People seeking a lift of the buttocks may opt for a HIFU treatment, rather than going for surgery. Plastic surgery can be risky, even in Australia, so a non-invasive HIFU procedure is a great alternative.
A few areas that might surprise you include the hands and knees. Yes, you can use HIFU on these areas of the body too! Age and weight loss make skin saggy around the knees and hands, so sometimes people want to tighten these areas too.
Non-Invasive Treatments Individualised to You
HIFU treatment areas include nearly every part of the body. If you wish to tighten your skin anywhere, HIFU is a safe and effective choice for treatment. Your skincare specialist can craft a treatment plan that’s right for you.
