ULTRASOUND TREATMENT FAQ
During an ultrasound (also known as ultrasonic) facial, high level sound wave technology is used to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin.
This facial therapy promotes cellular renewal and repair, tones facial muscles, increases blood circulation, encourages lymphatic drainage, combats puffiness and swelling and improves skin care product penetration.
The secret of its success is that with its application both water-soluble and fat-soluble active substances can easily enter the skin. Applying the method of ultrasound, the metabolic processes of the skin intensify, the nutrient and oxygen supply of the cells increase.
Thanks to the positive effect on the connective tissues’ fibres, the skin becomes tighter and youthfully elastic.
The heat generated during ultrasonic treatment increases blood flow, nutrient and oxygen supply to cells.
You’ll definitely notice an after-glow immediately, since the high-frequency waves stimulate blood circulation. However, for the more heavy-duty treatments, it can take up to a few months to see intense firming results. Since the procedure stimulates your body’s naturally produced collagen, it may take some time for the collagen to kick into gear.
Ultrasound facial results can last about a year, and up to two years with great after care. Again, depending on the state of your skin when you go in and how many treatments your dermatologist thinks are necessary, you may need several treatments before you get lasting results.
You may experience slight discomfort during an HIFU procedure. Some people describe it as tiny electric pulses or a light prickly sensation.
