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.

About HIFU Procedure at Ambrosia Clinic in Hyderabad
The High Intensity Focused Ultrasound or HIFU facial skin tightening procedure uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin. The procedure we follow is as follows:
- The face is cleansed and a conductive gel is applied to the skin area to be treated.
- The HIFU device is placed on the skin and the ultrasound energy is delivered to the targeted area.
- The ultrasound energy penetrates the skin and heats up the deep tissue layers, thereby stimulating collagen production and causing the skin to tighten and lift.
What to expect:
- Time: typically takes about 30 to 90 mins (depending on the size of the skin area).
- Post-procedure: The skin may have some mild redness and swelling, but this subsides within a few hours
- Recovery time: Patients can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.
One needs to keep in mind that the results may vary depending on the individual’s skin tone, general health and severity of skin laxity. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve desired results. The effects of the treatment may last up to 6 to 12 months.
Is the HIFU facial skin tightening procedure painful?
Before we begin any treatment, we prioritize your comfort by utilizing a topical numbing cream.

Does HIFU really work?
I had lovely laugh lines that made me look attractive when I smiled, or so my friends said. But it worried me that my skin was getting less supple as I grew older. Having read and heard so much about skin tightening treatments, I decided to give it a shot. My first consultation at Ambrosia helped me understand what to expect and how to care for my skin post procedure. Dr. Priti’s thoroughness during the examination was very reassuring too. I thoroughly recommend everyone who is concerned about their skin looking uncared for as they age. Ambrosia totally helped me remind myself that age is only a number. Thank you Dr. Priti for your magic.

My teenage acne had left a lot of scars on my face. That was all I saw when I looked in the mirror. While searching for treatment, I came across Ambrosia and decided to check out what could be done about it. My first impression when I walked in was one of complete ease with the warmth of the staff and the calm atmosphere. The initial consultation helped me understand what can be done to gradually remove the scars on my face as well as what I needed to do post-procedure. I am so happy with the results and go out of my way to mention Ambrosia whenever someone points out how smooth and beautiful my skin looks now. Thank you Ambrosia!

I had broken my nose as a child after a fall. It was misshapen because of that. The twisted nose also led to breathing problems. Searching for solutions, I came across Ambrosia Clinic and the procedures they offer to correct that. I was suggested surgery. I am thankful to the team of plastic surgeons who helped correct my nose as well as the breathing problems. My recovery time was minimal and I am able to lead a normal life since then. A big thank you to the great team at Ambrosia.

I had skin pigmentation on my face. It always made me conscious and I would hide it with layers of makeup. My friend suggested I meet Dr. Priti and do something about it instead of hiding behind makeup. I did not know what to expect, but was totally blown away by her warmth and the modern set up at Ambrosia. She not only explained the procedures I could get done but also what to expect at each stage during recovery. I thoroughly recommend Ambrosia and especially Dr. Priti to everyone.
