HIFU Patient Consent Form

The following points of information have been specifically discussed and I have had the opportunity to ask any questions concerning this information:

The HIFU system delivers a low amount of focused ultrasound energy to the skin. The heat from the ultrasound stimulates new collagen to form. I understand that there can be discomfort during the treatment when the ultrasound energy is delivered. I have discussed with my practitioner the options available to me to optimize my comfort during the procedure.

Initial……………………………………………….

Immediately following HIFU treatment, the skin may appear red for a few hours. It is not uncommon to experience slight swelling for a few days following the procedure or tingling/tenderness to the touch for days to weeks following the procedure, but these are mild and temporary in nature.

Initial………………………………………………….

Occasional temporary effects may include bruising or welts, which resolve in hours to days, or numbness in a select area, which resolves in days to weeks.

Initial……………………………………………………

As with any medical procedure, there are possible risks associated with the treatment. There is a remote risk of a burn that may or may not lead to scarring (either of which will respond to medical care), or temporary nerve inflammation, which will resolve in a matter of days to weeks. Temporary local muscle weakness may result after treatment due to inflammation of a motor nerve. Temporary numbness may result after treatment due to inflammation of a sensory nerve.

Initial…………………………………………………..

It has been explained to me that the results vary from patient to patient, and, occasionally, the collagen building on the inside that helps counter the effects of gravity does not have a visible effect on the outside. I understand that results will unfold over the course of 3 to 6 months and that some patients may benefit from more than one treatment. I also understand that a non-invasive HIFU treatment is not intended to produce the same results as an invasive surgical procedure.

Initial……………………………………………………

I now authorize _______________________________    to begin my HIFU treatment.

What is HIFU?

HIFU- High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, is a unique cosmetic method that focuses thermal energy on a single point through ultrasonic wave to help generate high amounts of energy on the SMAS and dermis layer of the skin.

With this, you can be guaranteed that there will be no skin injuries, rather it quick pulls, smoothes out wrinkles and tightens contours present in the skin.

This therapeutic process is a comfortable one that controls the skin layers accurately and energy focused having an impact on skin effective areas.

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) directly delivers heat energy to skin and subcutaneous tissue that can stimulate and renew the skin’s collagen and thus consequently improving the texture and reducing sagging of the skin. It literally achieves the results of a face-lift or a body lifts without any invasive surgery or injections, moreover, an added bonus of this procedure is that there is no downtime. and also, it works equally well for people of all skin colors, in contrast to that of lasers and the intense pulse lights.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s heating directly to deeper tissue, in order to lift the skin. It is performed in the office with only ultrasound gel applied to the skin. An ultrasound screen image allows the physician to visualize the level of treatment before energy is applied to the targeted tissue. The treatment takes from 45 to 90 minutes depending on the area(s) treated.

UIthare a safe and effective non-invasive ultrasound(US) treatment that can lift and tighten facial skin and muscle without downtime. It is targeted for Lifting skin on the neck, under the chin, on the brow etc.

HIFU Features

  • The temperature required to pass through 3~4.5mm of skin is within the range of 65℃~75℃, which is suitable for the quick and effective collagen regeneration.
  •  No harm will come to your skin, because the energy goes directly into the epidermis
  • It saves cost and it is very easy to operate and control
  • The lifting and tightening of your skin will be done at once and the effect will last for about 3-5 years.
  • There are no side effects; you can resume your normal duties immediately.
  • The dermal collagen fibres are provided with a thermal effect which will stimulate the SMAS and fat layer. This yields better results compared to the fractional rf.
  • It is very safe and effective. Globally, about 100,000 people make use of it. Experts only need 40-60 minutes to perform this treatment.

Advantages of HIFU

Non-surgical treatment: no injection, no wound, no drugs, no anesthesia in the whole treatment process.

Safety: it selectively takes effects on the target fat cells, destroying the fat cells thoroughly, and then the fats cells are removed by the absorption and decomposition of human body’s natural endogenous metabolism. Meanwhile, the surrounding epidermis, blood vessels and nerves remain unharmed. There is no risk of infection and trauma. A safe body shaping is promised.

Intelligent design: Intelligent control, touch operation, visual interfaces, Easy to learn, safe and convenient.

Convenience: The whole treatment is comfortable, no need to wear a shaper corset, no down-time, without any affects to normal life and work.

Effective results: After one treatment, 2cm fat will be reduced; after 3 treatments, 5-8cm fat will be removed. Remarkable slimming results without bounce.

It has three different working heads for different operational areas:

– 1.5 mm is for the epidermis layer;

– 3.0 mm is for the dermis layer;

– 4.5 mm is for the SMAS layer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Accessories

  • Before treatment, take a photo and with a make-up pencil, paint on the preoperative lifting area.
  • Select the appropriate transducer that matches the thickness of the skin
  • Set the required distance, length, energy. we suggest the distance be adjusted to 2mm, the length to 25mm and the energy should start from 0.1J.
  • Between the skin and the transducer apply ultrasonic gel to serve as a couplant.
  • The face lifting operation should be done on the note of power line; a line thermal condensed node in the depth specified will be formed under the skin as soon as the transmitting button is pressed per time. Until the transmission of the specified location is completed, the operation should continue on the powder line.
  • Avoid operating on the marginal mandibular branch of the facial nerve
  • After treatment, there should be no recovery period. Just make up immediately

  • The working head should not be used directly on the eye; it could damage the eye.
  • If the working handle motor is not working normally during treatment, leave the patient’s face immediately, and ensure you test the work head again to verify if it now works fine.

Why HiFu treatment is better than other treatment?

From shallow to deep facial structure are divided into: Epidermis, dermis, subcutaneous fat, SMAS, muscles and bones. Traditional surgery face lift surgery is to suspend

SMAS, achieving skin tightening and lift. Now using HIFU non-instructive methods can easily reach unprecedented treatment depth.

HIFU ultherapy depth is 1.5mm-4.5mm Besides acting on fibrous SEPTA, ultherapy can also act on deeper layer SMAS, the key point of traditional face lift surgery.

Therefore, HIFU has broken the previous limit, is the first instrument for non-intrusive SMAS treatment. Every single HIFU energy point(TCP) under the skin can make the temperature reach 65-70C, is the strongest temperature of all non-invasive skin tightening device.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • Is the HIFU treatment painful?

No, it is not. When it comes to pain, we all have different levels of sensitivity. There are customers who sleep off during the treatment process. If this is your first time, then it’s normal to feel nervous.

  • If the effect is bad, what do i do?

First of all, the results of the HIFU USA version has passed FDA clinical certification.

Secondly, HIFU makes utilizes focused ultrasound principle to allow energy act directly on the SMAS layer to stimulate the regeneration of lots of collagen.

Third, so many countries globally have purchased HIFU. Since its entry into the Chinese market last year, it has been receiving positive reviews.

  • After the HIFU treatment, will there be any effect?

There will be results. Instantly, the effect seen will reach 10% to 30%. In a month time, it will get above 40%. In three months time, you will look 5 to 10 years younger.
