High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) treatments have revolutionized the world of non-surgical skin tightening and lifting procedures. With the advent of 4D and 7D HIFU, the cosmetic industry has seen a significant shift in the way these treatments are performed. But what exactly are these treatments, and how do they differ? Let’s delve into the world of 4D and 7D HIFU treatments.
4D HIFU treatment is a non-invasive ultrasound therapy designed to counteract the effects of gravity and skin aging. The 4D HIFU machine uses focused ultrasound energy to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift, without disturbing the surface of the skin.
The 4D aspect of this treatment refers to the four dimensions it targets: the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System), deep dermis, mid-dermis, and epidermis. This multi-dimensional approach allows for a comprehensive treatment that results in a natural-looking lift and tightening of the skin.
7D HIFU treatment is an advanced version of the 4D HIFU. The 7D HIFU machine uses the same principles of focused ultrasound energy but with seven targeted depths. This treatment can reach deeper layers of the skin, providing a more intensive lift and tightening effect.
The 7D HIFU also incorporates a unique rotation emission technology, which allows the ultrasound energy to be emitted in a rotating manner. This results in a more uniform treatment, reducing the risk of burns and increasing the overall effectiveness of the procedure.
Both 4D and 7D HIFU treatments are effective for skin tightening and lifting. The choice between the two largely depends on the individual’s skin condition and desired results.
4D HIFU is generally recommended for those with mild to moderate skin laxity, while 7D HIFU is more suitable for those with more severe skin sagging or those seeking a more dramatic lift. The 7D HIFU’s ability to target deeper layers and provide a more uniform treatment also makes it a more advanced option.
However, it’s important to consult with a professional before deciding on the treatment. They can assess your skin condition and recommend the most suitable treatment for you.
Preparing for a HIFU treatment is relatively straightforward. Here are some tips:
Avoid sun exposure: Sunburned or tanned skin can affect the effectiveness of the treatment. Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least two weeks before the procedure.
Cleanse your skin: On the day of the treatment, cleanse your skin to remove any makeup or skincare products.
Stay hydrated: Hydrated skin responds better to HIFU treatment. Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your appointment.
Avoid certain medications: Some medications and supplements can increase the risk of bruising. Your practitioner will provide a list of medications to avoid before the treatment.
