This procedure is a minimally invasive non-surgical process. In this, an infrared light source is used to tighten the skin. Heating is done under the collagen of the skin to tighten it. Just after the first session, the results of the tightened skin are immediately visible. This is an approved method for reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and also for treating sagging skin. It is the safest method to improve the overall appearance and quality of the skin. To ensure the complete safety of patients eye protection is worn during the treatment and a cold air blower is used on the skin to bring comfort and safety.

Each day our skin is exposed to severe ultraviolet rays and undergo sun damage. In a youthful state, our skin has a complete balance between generating new collagen and losing old ones due to damage caused by sun rays. However, as we grow older or receive excessive sun exposure, the balance disrupts and leads to reduction of the collagen cells which are responsible for tightening the skin and making it youthful. The early signs of aging are seen in the form of wrinkles, and fine lines, thus leading to loose skin.
At Josan Holistic Hospital we use ND-YAG laser technology to restore the youthful radiance of your skin. This procedure stimulates the production of collagen in your skin to soften the fine lines.
In the HIFU process, the chosen area is applied with a gel. A handheld device is used to emit the ultrasound waves in short bursts. Each session normally lasts for 30-90 minutes. Certain people feel mild pain afterward and we apply a local anesthetic before the procedure, to help prevent this pain. It does not require any preparation. There is no recovery time involved. People can easily get onto their normal routine after receiving HIFU treatment.
