Ultherapy or High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a relatively new cosmetic treatment which is safer and more effective option for skin tightening and lifting than surgical facelift.
It uses ultrasound energy to encourage the production of collagen, which results in firmer skin.
After treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months as your body naturally regenerates collagen.
HIFU contours jawline without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

Main benefits of it are face lifting, contouring, regeneration and strengthens collagen.
