Review: Kowayo HIFU treatment – Does it really work?

Age is just a number but it’s also the reality that we age and it shows on our face and body. For some, ageing is faster and for some it’s not so. But ultimately, ageing is natural process and though we can’t avoid it, we can certainly delay its effects. That’s exactly where aesthetics clinics and treatments play a major role. We recently tried HIFU treatment at Kowayo Aesthetics and here’s our honest review. Read on!

What’s HIFU Treatment?

For many of you, the first question on mind would be – is it invasive or non-invasive? Well, HIFU is non-invasive and that means no injections involved!

HIFU AKA High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound treatment was initially invented to destroy tumors by using the ultrasound energy. It was modified for aesthetic purposes and is being used since 2008 in beauty industry.

How HIFU works?

It’s always necessary to know clearly what goes behind any aesthetic treatment because it’s going to be performed on your face / body.

Our skin has different layers and the purpose of HIFU is to to heat up SMAS layer with thermal-coagulation effect which delivers heat-induced clotting/denaturation of tissue. This action will stimulate collagen and tightening of SMAS resulting in face lifting effect. The focused beams can also melt the unwanted fats in the jowl and jawline while firming the skin.

HIFU’s ultrasonic wave reinforces the existing collagen and stimulates new collagen.

Treatment areas of HIFU

If you think that HIFU works only for face, think again because it works effectively for arms and thighs as well.

Results after HIFU at Kowayo Aesthetics

HIFU works from within and you can expect to see the optimum results occurring after 1 month as your body naturally regenerates collagen and elastin. Collagen provides strength to skin structure while elastin helps skin to resume their shape after stretching. Together, they help to counteract saggy and wrinkly skin by providing rigidity and elasticity.

How long does the HIFU treatment take and is it painful?

I personally loved the fact that the treatment is fast and almost painless. For me, it was completely painless.

The technology behind newer generation of HIFU machine (Ultracel Q+), a procedure for the face and neck only takes 15–20 minutes, while body treatment requires half an hour. Due to the fast delivery of sound wave, the discomfort is kept to a minimum.

Since the skin’s surface is not affected, there is minimal to no downtime. However, mild redness / swelling after the treatment is expected and common which will wean off within 1-2 days maximum. It is recommended to do 2-3 sessions per year to get the best result.

The procedure stimulates your own collagen but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside. Generally it can last for 6 months to 1 year.

Our verdict:

Kowayo Aesthetics HIFU treatment worked great for my skin. When people compliment you about your skin, you know that it’s a great treatment. I loved the fact that it’s fast and fabulous. Skin looks more glowy and firmed up! It’s a great gift idea to yourself. Worth trying out definitely!!!
