HIFU Treatment In Hyderabad

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive medical procedure that uses focused ultrasound waves to treat various medical conditions. The technology works by using a high-frequency sound wave to create a focused energy source, which is used to heat and destroy targeted tissue without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue; it also induces the existing collagen fibres to contract and stimulates new collagen production. This process results in firm, bright and smoother skin. HIFU targets the areas of the face and neck most prone to sagging and wrinkling, such as the brow, forehead, cheeks, jowls and neck. A proven non-surgical alternative to a facelift, HIFU can produce desired results with minimal downtime. In addition, given the non-invasive nature of the procedure and that no incisions or punctures are required, it reduces risks of infection, bleeding, and other complications that can occur with traditional surgical procedures.
