Microfocused Ultrasound with Visualization (MFU-V)
Looking to counteract the signs of aging without cuts and needles? Microfocused Ultrasound with Visualization (MFU-V) is a good alternative, providing a nonsurgical approach to face lifting using ultrasound energy. It helps slow down the effects of aging caused by time, gravity, and sun exposure.
Microfocused Ultrasound with Visualization (MFU-V) is a US FDA-cleared procedure for naturally lifting and tightening the skin on the face, on the brow, and under the chin. It uses time-tested focused ultrasound energy that penetrates deep into the skin’s layers. This triggers collagen production, which results in visible skin tightening over time.
How does it work?
MFU-V uses a system that bypasses the surface of the skin. This delivers the right amount of ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s foundational layer. This then triggers a natural response, jumpstarting the regenerative process that stimulates the production of new collagen.
This non-invasive lifting procedure also uses ultrasound imaging, enabling aesthetic doctors to see the areas they are treating. This reassures patients that the ultrasound energy is delivered to the areas where it will be both effective and beneficial.
Is MFU-V safe?
Clinical studies worldwide, along with thousands of procedures performed internationally, have established MFU-V's safety and effectiveness. It has also received the European CE mark for non-invasive dermatological lifting and sculpting of the upper and lower face, neck, and décolleté.
Does the procedure hurt?
It is normal to feel tiny amounts of energy during the procedure, but comfort levels vary from patient to patient. However, these sensations are only present while the energy is being delivered on the surface of the skin.
Safe painkillers and topical numbing creams are also available before the procedure to improve patient comfort.
How fast can I see the results?
Many notice an initial improvement after the treatment, but significant results appear over two to three months. This is the period when the new collagen works to lift and tighten skin. You can see further improvements up to six months after the procedure.
How many treatments do I need?
Most patients can benefit from a single treatment, but others may need multiple sessions depending on the degree and skin laxity and the body’s response to the procedure. It is also a good idea to consider this non-invasive lifting procedure as an annual treatment, as we cannot stop the aging process.
When done as a maintenance treatment, MFU-V can slow down the effects of aging and put more collagen in your collagen bank.
Can MFU-V replace a surgical facelift?
MFU-V facial treatment is not a replacement for a surgical facelift. However, it is a great choice if you are not willing to go under the knife or if you want to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Is MFU-V only for women?
No. Both men and women can benefit from an MFU-V treatment. Men who want to look youthful or more competitive can consider the procedure for effectively lifting and tightening sagging skin caused by aging.
Are there any side effects?
You may feel slight redness or tenderness following the treatment, but this is temporary and should subside after a few hours. A consultation with an aesthetic doctor can help you learn what to expect before, during, and after the procedure.
