Here are some tips for taking care of your skin before and after a HIFU treatment:

Hifu treatment, also known as HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound), is a skin rejuvenation technique that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen production in the skin. This non-invasive technique is a popular alternative to cosmetic surgery because it does not require incisions and does not cause serious side effects.

However, for Hifu treatment to be effective, it is important to properly prepare your skin before the procedure. In this article, we give you our advice for preparing your skin before a Hifu treatment in order to obtain the best possible results.

Avoid sun exposure

It is important to avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks before your Hifu treatment. UV rays can damage the skin and make Hifu treatment less effective. If you must go out in the sun, use a sunscreen with a high SPF to protect your skin.


Clean your skin

Make sure your skin is clean before Hifu treatment. Use a gentle cleanser to remove impurities and traces of makeup. Avoid harsh cleansers that can irritate the skin and cause redness.


Hydrate your skin

Well-hydrated skin is essential to achieve the best results with Hifu treatment. Use a moisturizer to maintain hydration in your skin. Moisturizing creams based on hyaluronic acid are particularly effective in deeply hydrating the skin.


Avoid irritating products

Avoid irritating products such as exfoliants, peels and retinoids for at least a week before your Hifu treatment. These products can make your skin more sensitive and increase the risk of irritation.

Before and after your Hifu treatment, avoid skin care products that contain irritating ingredients such as alcohol, perfumes and dyes. These ingredients can cause irritation and inflammation of the skin, which may reduce the effectiveness of the Hifu treatment.

Stop smoking

Smoking can damage the skin and make Hifu treatment less effective. Stop smoking at least two weeks before your Hifu treatment to give your skin time to recover.


Avoid alcohol

Alcohol can dehydrate the skin, which may make Hifu treatment less effective. Avoid drinking alcohol for at least two days before your Hifu treatment.

After treatment


After a Hifu treatment, it is normal to experience slight redness or swelling in the treated area. This is due to the stimulation of collagen production and your skin's natural response to treatment. These symptoms should disappear within a few hours to a few days.

In the weeks following your Hifu treatment, you may begin to notice a gradual improvement in the appearance of your skin. Your skin may appear firmer and more toned, with a younger, more radiant appearance.


It is important to note that Hifu treatment results may vary depending on different factors, such as age, skin type and general health. It may be necessary to undergo several Hifu treatments to achieve the desired results.


After Hifu treatment, it is important to take care of your skin to maintain optimal results. For the first week after your Hifu treatment, we recommend washing your face with lukewarm water, not too hot or too cold. Avoid using hot or cold water as this may cause skin irritation and reduce the effectiveness of the Hifu treatment.


If you feel any pain or discomfort after your Hifu treatment, you can apply a cold compress to the treated area to ease the discomfort. Avoid using hot compresses as this may cause skin irritation.


Avoid activities that can irritate the skin

After your Hifu treatment, avoid activities that may cause skin irritation, such as strenuous exercise, swimming in chlorinated pools, and using saunas and hot baths. These activities may cause skin irritation and reduce the effectiveness of the Hifu treatment.


Hydrate your skin

We recommend using a hydrating facial mask every day for the first week, then twice a week thereafter. Hydrating masks can help restore moisture to your skin and maintain optimal results after your Hifu treatment. Make sure you choose a moisturizing mask that is gentle on your skin and does not contain irritating ingredients.

Additionally, it is important to maintain a consistent skincare routine after your Hifu treatment. Use products that are gentle on your skin and help maintain adequate hydration, such as moisturizers, serums, and gentle cleansers. Avoid skin care products that contain irritating ingredients such as alcohol, fragrances and dyes.


Avoid sun exposure

After a Hifu treatment, avoid direct exposure to the sun for at least two weeks. UV rays can damage the skin and reduce the effectiveness of Hifu treatment. If you must go out in the sun, wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high sun protection factor to protect your skin.


By following these simple tips, you can help prepare your skin for an effective Hifu treatment and maintain optimal results after the procedure. Remember to chat with your esthetician if you have any questions or concerns before or after your Hifu treatment.
