How to get a tight body HIFU technique?
HIFU is used to generate high heat from 60 to 70 degrees Celsius at a deeper level in the skin, which causes damage to the target skin cells.
This causes the body to try to repair it, so it produces collagen (a protein that contributes to body structure) which helps in regrowth of cells.
The increase in collagen results in tighter skin with fewer wrinkles.
This occurs because the ultrasound beams are focused on a specific area without damaging the upper layers of the skin.
The doctor begins by cleaning the selected area, then applies a gel to it.
He then uses a hand-held device that sends ultrasound waves several times, and the session lasts between half an hour and an hour and a half.
The duration of the session may vary from person to person depending on the treatment site.
