HIFU Q & A

by Jean-Denis Boucher, MD, FAAD

What is HIFU?

High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), also known as ultratherapy, is a new non-surgical, FDA-approved procedure used to tighten the skin on the face, neck, chin, and body. Dr. Boucher uses this procedure to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve your skin tone, leaving you with a more refreshed, younger look.

Ultratherapy rejuvenates the skin by delivering high heat waves into the deep layers of skin through ultrasound technology. The ultrasound focuses on a single point to produce high energy that acts on your superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS), resulting in shrinkage of the SMAS layer and the regeneration of your skin.

This regeneration process is your body’s response to the ultratherapy. You will naturally, gradually, and gently rebuild collagen and elastin, resulting in a refreshed, younger you.

What is involved in the HIFU ultratherapy procedure?

Dr. Boucher evaluates your needs and concerns to determine the right course of treatment for you. Dr. Boucher closely reviews your medical history to make sure you’re a good candidate for the procedure. He also offers a wide range of procedures that can be combined with ultratherapy to enhance your outcome.

What are the side effects of HIFU ultratherapy?

There are no known side effects associated with HIFU ultratherapy. Treatment is both safe and effective for most skin tones and types. Dr. Boucher can discuss your expected results and any concerns you have about treatment at your initial consultation.

What are the benefits of HIFU ultratherapy?

HIFU ultratherapy helps eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improves your skin tone. This treatment also offers skin tightening and contouring benefits, enhancing the overall look and feel of your skin and appearance.

Because treatment is nonsurgical, you don’t have to worry about long-lasting scars or an extended recovery period. You can enjoy younger-looking, healthier skin without the risks of surgery or anesthesia.

Over time, your body continues to generate new skin cells for long-lasting, natural-looking results, with a firmer, smoother skin texture and improved skin tone.
