Using HIFU technology for facial and body contouring treatment 

Woman with perfect skin

At Pua Manu MedSpa of Kapolei, Hawaii, Dr. Nancy Chen and her dedicated staff are pleased to offer many non-surgical face-lift treatments for patients to consider. One of the more popular options today is the HIFU treatment, which uses ultrasound energy to improve facial contouring and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles across the face for both men and women!

What is HIFU treatment?

HIFU stands for “high-intensity focused ultrasound.” It uses ultrasound energy to offer a non-surgical face-lift, tightening the face and jaw and improving facial contours. With the HIFU face-lifting treatment, men and women can take years off their appearance without ever going under the surgeon’s scalpel! This non-invasive, highly effective manner of tightening and toning the skin on the face and body can address a wide range of common skin issues with just a few treatment sessions.

Where can HIFU treatment be performed?

Dr. Nancy Chen has used high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to address many different areas of the body, including the following:

  • Buttocks
  • Face
  • Back of the arms
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Knees

How does the HIFU skin tightening treatment work?

Your skin has many layers, including the thickest layer, the dermis, which rests between the subcutaneous tissue and the epidermis. This layer is comprised of proteins and collagen. The ultrasound energy from the HIFU device hits this middle layer, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin by injuring the cells and activating the skin’s natural healing responses. This, in turn, provides tighter, firmer skin over several weeks with increased collagen and elastin production.

Why should I consider HIFU treatment?

HIFU treatment has many advantages, including the ability to tighten and firm skin without being invasive. It provides results after a single treatment and is an affordable alternative to surgical interventions. It doesn’t require any downtime and is comfortable when performed by an experienced provider.
