What is HIFU?
HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound.
A relatively new cosmetic treatment, HIFU is a non-invasive treatment method for fat reduction and body contouring. Body contouring, including the HIFU treatment, is becoming increasingly more popular throughout Toronto and beyond.
HIFU Treatment: How Does It Work?
HIFU uses ultrasound energy to transfer heat to the layers of skin deep below the surface. When this heat is applied, the targeted skin cells are damaged. In this case, this cellular damage is a good thing because the action causes the body to start the repair process.
HIFU and Collagen:
During this repair and rejuvenation process, the ever-important substance called collagen is produced.
Collagen is an enormously important building block of skin. It provides structure to the skin and promotes elasticity.
What's more, collagen is instrumental in tightening skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and giving a naturally more youthful appearance.

HIFU Side Effects
Although rare, some may experience temporary numbness, swelling or minimal bruising after a HIFU therapy treatment.
These HIFU treatment side effects, however, are mild and usually go away after a few days.
As a result, clients appreciate the very short recovery time–something that is only possible with a non-surgical facelift or body HIFU therapy.
People are able to see results in just one or two HIFU treatments.
