1. All-round introduction to hifu machine:
The United States, the world's only FDA-certified hifu machine (HIFU) technology
It is based on high-intensity focused ultrasound (High Itesity Focused Ultrasoud; HIFU), focusing the ultrasound on a single point to generate high energy to stimulate the proliferation and reorganization of collagen in the muscle fascia layer. The full name of the muscle fascia layer is the Superficial Musculo- Apoeurotic System, which refers to a layer of muscle fascia tissue on the cheeks, which is an important lifting key that will be treated during the skin pulling operation. Ultrasonic wave released by polar sonic lift (focused ultrasound) can directly reach the skin, muscle and fascia layer. The treatment depth is 1.5mm dermis layer, 3mm subcutaneous tissue, 4.5mm muscle fascia layer, and the focused energy becomes tiny "hot spots". ”, the temperature under the skin can reach 65 ℃ ~ 70 ℃, which will stimulate the body’s self-renewal mechanism and stimulate the proliferation of collagen.
Hifu machine treatment steps, what are they and how long do they take?
1) The registered doctor will conduct detailed consultation according to your skin condition, loose parts, body condition, facial contour, etc., and determine the most suitable number of polar lines and waves to be applied to the face, so as to deepen the understanding of the treatment and reduce the In order to better cooperate with the treatment, the nurse or therapist will explain the content of the hifu beauty machine treatment consent form item by item to the client, and both parties sign and confirm. (Time: about 30-40 minutes)
2) Guests are requested to take front and side close-up photos in the filming room and keep them on file. The photos of the guests are for the privacy of the guests and are only used for the comparison between the guests and the clinic before and after the treatment. (Time: about 5 minutes)
3) The registered nurse/therapist will first use the original Japanese, YC series medical grade cleanser to clean the treatment area for the client, and then the client can choose to apply a little anesthetic ointment on the face and chin and neck (if necessary) to be treated. . Since there is a slight heat or tingling sensation during focused ultrasound treatment, applying anesthesia ointment can reduce discomfort during the treatment. The anaesthetic ointment has a mild effect, will not harm the skin and has no side effects. After the hifu machine course of treatment, the anaesthetic effect will soon dissipate. (Time: about 30-45 minutes)
4) The registered doctor will draw a mark on the client's face with a medical marker, and design the wire harness trend and application quantity of the polar line sound wave in advance according to the distribution of fat and muscle, so as to ensure that the area that needs to be improved can be accurately treated. (Time: about 5-8 minutes)
5) Before the operation of the hifu machine course, the doctor will also refer to the facial measurement and analysis of the hifu beauty machine computer to comprehensively confirm the number of lines required for the course of treatment. We use ultrasonic probes (Trasducer) with two depths of 3mm and 4.5mm for different parts of the face, so as to achieve precise and maximum lifting effect. The registered doctor applies the gel to the treatment area (for focused ultrasound treatment, the gel must be applied to see the muscle and fascia layer through perspective). First, a smooth probe is placed on the client's skin to inspect the deep tissue of the skin, and then the probe is placed at the correct skin depth to emit focused ultrasound. The physician's expertise in facial tissue structure and manipulation will ensure that extraneous blood vessels and nerves are avoided during epipolar sonication. During the course of treatment, the doctor will also communicate the treatment effect with the client, and the client will see a real-time comparison of the improvement effect. Finally, when the number of treatment lines has reached the specified number, the hifu beauty machine will automatically remind, and the whole course of treatment will be completed. (Time: about 60-90 minutes, depending on the size of the hifu beauty machine)
6) The registered nurse/therapist will then help the client to wash off the gel and apply the YC series of skin care products developed and produced by our clinic in Japan, such as serum, face cream and sunscreen used in conjunction with the treatment, to quickly repair and protect the skin . (Time: about 5-8 minutes)
1. How do you feel, for example: pain, foreign body sensation, burning sensation, etc.

Slight redness, red marks on the chin or neck and other thin skin areas may occur for several hours after treatment, mild tingling and may be minimal in some areas Measure the white spots. These are normal and temporary reactions caused by the heat generated by the focused ultrasound to make the skin feel uncomfortable. There will be no scabs, no wounds, and no impact on life.

l If the skin is filled with fillers (autologous fat, hyaluronic acid, botulinum toxin, collagen, etc.), it will take about three months to do it. In order to avoid the heat spreading over the injection site, the metabolism will be accelerated and the injected drug will disappear. In addition, if the quality of the filler is not high or true, it is easy to cause lesions after doing sonic wave lift, usually after three months.
4. What are the contraindicated medicines, foods and lifestyles before the hifu machine treatment? How to prepare for treatment

5. After the treatment, how long does the effect of hifu machine take to appear? How long can it last? During this period, what skin care methods can be used to prolong the effect time?
About one month after the treatment with focused ultrasound (hifu beauty machine), the underlying collagen begins to proliferate actively, and the effect peaks after 2 to 3 months, and the effect of one treatment can be maintained for an average of 6 to 12 months. In principle, most patients who receive treatment can feel the obvious effect of skin tightening and lifting after one treatment. However, due to the difference in skin condition, relaxation and personal needs of each person, individual effects will vary. It is recommended to return for a follow-up visit for a month. The doctor can help observe and follow up the progress of the treatment, and cooperate to consolidate and refine the overall effect.

Please reapply every 2 to 3 hours when you go out, and you can also use physical sunscreens such as umbrellas and hats for better protection.
In the meantime, you can do Laser Geesis (a multi-functional laser treatment, it helps to tighten the skin, activate collagen, improve large pores, remove fine lines and wrinkles, smooth the skin, and restore the original elasticity of the skin.) to prolong the effect time.
6. What should be paid special attention to when mainland tourists go to Hong Kong for beauty treatments?
l The laws of Hong Kong stipulate that only locally registered doctors can perform medical injections and various invasive surgeries. Although the hifu beauty machine is a safe and non-invasive device, due to the complexity of facial nerves and blood vessels, the doctor's operation will minimize the risks and discomfort during the treatment. When you see some beauty salons quoting a particularly low price, be sure to confirm whether it is operated by a local licensed doctor.
l At present, the hifu beauty machine on the market is the only HIFU device approved by the FDA for safety and efficacy. When some businesses only promote the word HIFU, please clarify whether it is a machine of American origin, otherwise it may cost nothing but no effect.
l Overemphasizing the number of harnesses for epipolar sonication therapy and ignoring the possible adverse effects and the potential risk of burns to the underlying skin;
l Although Hong Kong is regulated by strict and perfect Hong Kong medical regulations, consumers still need to keep their eyes open for consumption in Hong Kong. Only by receiving consultation and treatment in a formal and reputable clinic can the real value for money be guaranteed, and there is no worry about encountering the use of " Recover the case of the "probe" or hifu beauty machine" machine.
l Since hifu machine is the latest, most effective and safest non-invasive tightening and lifting equipment in the medical and aesthetic field, its treatment price is also relatively expensive.
