The rising risks and faltering promises of painful invasive procedures are driving more and more people into the arms of non-surgical techniques of fat reduction. To meet the ever growing demand to achieve non-invasive skin lifting and tightening many devices employing various energy technologies were recently developed including focused ultrasound.
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, High Therapy for short is similar to the ultrasound used in medical imaging. However, it is highly convergent and uses a different frequency of sound energy. Special devices that convert one form of energy to other direct ultrasound to a focal point producing low levels of heat in the targeted area. Thus stimulating cells to produce collagen and do tissue repair.
High Therapy is FDA approved safe and a fast procedure. Currently, it is employed in facial rejuvenation, lifting, tightening and body contouring with high success. The following are the common areas of application:
- Blurred jaw line
- Dropping mouth
- Sagging eyelids
- Loose neck folds
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- Large pores
Among all the non-invasive procedures High Therapy stands out tall. Here’s why?
- Zero preparation required on the side of the patient
- Fast procedure lasting between 60 to 90 minutes
- Overall comfortable procedure barring slight prickling feeling
- Cooling not required
- Zero downtime
- Instant revival of Collagen production
- Healthier, stronger and youthful skin naturally
- No scarring or any dents in skin
- Clinically proven safe
- Long lasting, gradual skin rejuvenation
- Most patients need only one session
Who is a good candidate for High Therapy
Since the effects are based on the wound healing response younger subjects have better outcomes than the older ones. Likewise people with sun damaged skin are unlikely to achieve results similar to those with healthy skin. Also obese patients may also not see good outcome in undergoing High Therapy. And those who have open wounds or lesions, severe or cystic acne, people with active implants such as pacemakers or defibrillators, or those with metallic implants in the planned treatment area and pregnant women should stay away from High Therapy.
People with mild to moderate sagging or loosening skin will benefit from High Therapy. Full face, neck or any specific areas can be subjected to this treatment. And any cosmetic conscious patients who need a head start on Collagen production can also benefit from High Therapy.
Long lasting results from the revival of collagen production are reassuring. This restores the natural skin elasticity and tone leading to a smoother, brighter, firmer, supple and soft skin. Your eyes will be more open, brows more lifted and fine lines more softened and pores more reduced. Results will appear as early as weeks to over 2-3 months and can last anytime from 18 months to 3 years after treatment.
Accreditation for this treatment
Advanced skin care technology requires top notch infrastructure and high investment in trained, certified specialists. Not any cosmetic clinic can stand to offer this promising and popular fat reduction remedy on its menu. Cosmetic clinics that are labeled accredited have met certain academic and institutional requirements. Accreditation preserves the quality and integrity of skin treatments across all clinics that offer them. In India, The Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology (ABTC) which is the Indian section of the CIDESCO international is the body that gives accreditation to the cosmetic clinics that offer High Therapy.
