What is HIFU?

The ultrasound device Ulfit is the newest breakthrough for non-surgical face lifting and skin tightening technology.

The Ulfit system delivers high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) for skin and face lifting, and macro-focused circular ultrasound (MFCA) for body slimming.

HIFU Therapy is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment for the face that counteracts the effects of time and gravity. Applications include:

  • Forehead
  • Eyebrows
  • Wrinkles
  • Cheeks
  • Jowl line
  • Double Chin
  • Neck

The Ulfit device successfully treats skin laxity on the face and delivers an effective solution for body contouring.

How does Ulfit work?

Ulfit delivers focused ultrasound energy (HIFU) deep beneath the skin creating the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration and triggering a natural process called neocollagenesis, which produces new collagen.

Ulfit relies on the body’s own regenerative response to smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage while gently and gradually lifting the skin above the eyebrow, under the chin, and on the neck. This natural process produces noticeable, long-lasting results without the use of fillers, creams or toxins.

Three different facial cartridges are used to treat important layers of the skin: the 1.5mm and 3.0mm cartridges are used for the dermis layer whereas the 4.5mm cartridge is used for contracting and tightening the soft tissue of the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS).

In the 6-12 weeks following treatment, the face becomes noticeably tighter and more contoured, with results lasting up to 12 months.  In fact, Ulfit is known for speed and precision, and for delivering targeted, long-lasting results.

Am I a candidate?

If you are experiencing mild skin laxity (the face and neck look and feel less firm), Ulfit may be the best choice for non-surgical lifting.

While Ulfit does not duplicate the results of a surgical facelift, it does addresses the same deep foundational layers of skin and is a great alternative for those not ready for surgery, or for post-surgical patients who wish to extend the results of cosmetic surgery.

With non-surgical procedures, there is no significant pain, unlike with many surgical treatments. Treatments will often involve some type of numbing.

Also unlike surgical treatments, there is very little recovery time (if any at all) with a non-surgical procedure like the Ulfit. Patients can usually go back to their normal life immediately, even back to work if needed the same day. Some patients may need 1 hour of downtime with some more extensive treatments. A surgical face-lift typically involves a much longer time for recovery.

The Ulfit HIFU treatment takes often an hour or less. There is also no lengthy time of preparation before the treatment.

With non-surgical treatments, almost all of the usual risks of surgery are avoided. The typical risks involved are limited to only minor swelling and bruising.

Since non-surgical face lift treatments don’t involve the removal of skin and aren’t permanent, results can be adjusted as a patient’s face changes over time. During most non-surgical procedures, patients are asked to provide feedback and have control over the results. Since treatments are only done on small areas that need it, the effect of the procedure is limited to only the exact changes patients want to be made.

The Ulfit device used for a non-surgical face lift can lift and tighten most problems areas of the face. This includes the forehead and periorbital, wrinkles, chin and double chin, eyebrows, cheek, v-line, and jowl line.
