WHAT IS A HIFU?




HIFU is a medical procedure that uses ultrasound waves to treat certain conditions, such as tumors, uterine fibroids, and tremors. HIFU stands for high-intensity focused ultrasound, which means that the ultrasound waves are concentrated on a specific target area, where they create heat and destroy the abnormal tissue. HIFU can be used as an alternative to surgery or radiation therapy, as it is less invasive and has fewer side effects.

ABOUT THE HIFU PROCEDURE



The HIFU procedure is usually done in a hospital or a clinic by a trained doctor or technician. The procedure may take from a few minutes to a few hours, depending on the type and size of the area being treated. The procedure may require general or local anesthesia, sedation, or pain medication, depending on the patient’s condition and preference. The procedure involves using a device that emits ultrasound waves through the skin or a probe inserted into the body. The device is guided by imaging techniques, such as ultrasound or MRI, to locate the target area and monitor the treatment. The ultrasound waves create a small zone of high temperature, which destroys the tissue without harming the surrounding organs.

HIFU RECOVERY



The recovery time for HIFU varies depending on the individual and the extent of the procedure. Generally, the patient can expect to have some mild discomfort, swelling, or bruising for the first few days or weeks. The patient should avoid any strenuous activities and follow the doctor’s instructions for wound care and medication. The patient may return to work after a few days or weeks, depending on the nature of the job. The final results of the procedure may take up to a few months to appear, as the body heals and eliminates the dead tissue.

ARE YOU THE RIGHT FOR AN CANDIDATE FOR A HIFU?



You may be a good candidate for carboxytherapy if you have any conditions or issues that can benefit from the healing and regenerative effects of platelets and growth factors, such as chronic tendon injuries, osteoarthritis, hair loss, or skin aging. You should also be in good health, have realistic expectations, and understand the risks and benefits of the procedure. However, carboxytherapy may not be suitable for everyone. You should not get carboxytherapy if you have any of the following conditions or situations:

  • An active infection, inflammation, or fever.
  • A bleeding disorder or a history of blood clots.
  • A heart condition or a pacemaker.
  • A malignant tumor or cancer.
  • A thyroid disorder or a hormonal imbalance.
  • A pregnancy or a breastfeeding.
  • An allergy to any of the ingredients in the carboxytherapy products.
  • You should consult with your doctor before getting carboxytherapy to determine if it is safe and effective for you.

  • Pain, swelling, redness, or infection at the treatment site.
