Ultherapy High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) for Eye Bags
WHAT CAUSES EYE BAGS
Under eye wrinkles, eye bags or dark circles are common aspects of aging and is prominent among individuals aged 20 and above. One reason why eye bags begin to form is due to genetics, and cannot be prevented since it will occur naturally. Other common causes include high salt intake in your diet and excessive water retention. This will stretch out the skin underneath your eyes, leading to the presence of wrinkles or dark circles. In addition, ligaments and muscles hold the fat in your face together but they get weaker with age, which can lead to sagging that makes the fat appear more visible.
HOW TO GET RID OF EYE BAGS BY USING HIFU?
Utilising ultrasound energy, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) helps to increase the production of collagen in your skin. As the first machine of its kind commercially available, the Ulthera provides a non-invasive treatment to improve the aesthetic nature of skin. The Ultraformer at Premier Clinic is the next-generation HIFU machine, which offers better results without the discomfort.
Our doctors will evaluate you as a potential candidate for Ultraformer HIFU treatment during the consultation, as well as answering your questions and concerns.
HOW IT WORKS
This non-invasive treatment has been shown by clinical studies to be safe and effective, with the Ultraformer machine using ultrasound technology. It bypasses the surface of your skin at the optimum depth and temperature without causing damage, triggering the production of fresh collagen. This will help your skin become elastic once more, reducing eye bags and under eye problems. Using ultrasound imaging, doctors can accurately determine which areas are in need of treatment the most.
A visible improvement in your skin may be noticeable following the treatment session, but more distinctive and obvious results will be seen in the next 2-3 months. This time is needed for the collagen to take effect in your skin, tightening it to reduce eye bags and dark circles.
