High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive therapeutic technology that uses non-ionizing ultrasonic energy to heat tissue. HIFU can be used to increase the flow of blood or to destroy tissue, such as tumours, through ablation or cavitation. HIFU technology has a number of proven applications such as neurological disorders, uterine fibroids, some cancers and drug delivery.
The team behind ULTRAISER, Cambridge Tech Ltd, has been providing high-quality HIFU components to companies all across the globe for many years now. We uphold the very highest standards in all our products and services, and it is our mission to make HIFU accessible to everyone who can benefit from it. Whether it’s targeting and destroying cancerous tissue to help heal a hospital patient, to burning fat and lifting the skin to make someone feel more confident in their own body, HIFU has so much to offer.
HIFU Technology in Skin Treatment
HIFU is a new cosmetic treatment for skin tightening that is non-invasive and painless. HIFU uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the production of collagen, which results in firmer skin. Collagen (along with elastin) is found in the dermal layer of skin, providing structural support and is also responsible for skin elasticity.
The ultrasound energy created by our ULTRAISER HIFU device targets the layers of skin just below the surface (dermis) and causes the tissue to heat up rapidly. Once the cells in the targeted area reach a certain temperature, a process occurs that stimulates the cells to produce more collagen. This boost in collagen results in tighter, firmer skin with fewer wrinkles. The high-frequency ultrasound beams emitted by ULTRAISER are focused on a specific site below the skin’s surface so there is no damage to the upper layers of the skin or adjacent issue.
