HIFU is a method of applying high density ultrasonic energy to a certain depth from the skin by focusing method and giving high heat and cavitation effect by pinpoint treatment, and it has been used for the treatment of tumors of organs such as prostate, pancreas, liver, etc.
In the field of cosmetic medicine, many HIFU devices including Ulthera in the United States have appeared in the past 10 years. With regard to the effects, it is known to give good results in cases where there is objectively apparent slight sagging or sagging from the chin to the neck.
However, for those who do not have such objective sagging, using equipment that delivers such high energy to tissues may cause fat tissue loss in the future. In the worst case, fat may be lost from the face, making it a rather old-lokking face.
HIFU is a very effective device if it does not go wrong with the indication, but here the expert diagnosis technology is required.
It is a light brown color that appears on the surface of the face, a little raised – this is a benign skin lesion, often called seborrheic keratosis. It is seen mainly in middle-aged and elderly people. In the case of several to many, there may be several dozens.
In addition, small white spots may be seen on the skin surface under the eyes. This is called Milium (Milia in several) and the tube of eccrine sweat gland is clogged and sebum accumulates in it.
These lesions are also commonly treated in the United States in general by “radio waves”. It is similar to laser treatment, but it is less invasive and can be expected to recover quickly.
Many of the small brown dots and protrusions that can be formed in the neck are those called soft fibroma, acrochordon, skin tug, or seborrheic keratosis, Most of them are not infectious. Although it may be exacerbated by the stimulation of a necklace or clothing, most of what is seen after the middle age is due to the aging phenomenon of the skin.
Treatment at our hospital eradicates such skin lesions using equipment called radio- waves commonly used in the United States. Radiowaves are less noticeable than the other methods of remediation, and recovery is prompt. Since we remove local lesions after local anesthesia, there is no pain.
Treatment expenses are from 5,000 yen plus tax, but discount system is available when there are many pieces.
