Before you decide whether to do HIFU treatment, you may be wondering if any aftercare is required. Read on to learn about some important steps you can take to improve the effectiveness of HIFU treatment and avoid complications.

 

Tip 1: Avoid the sun

Sun protection is absolutely essential for a proper recovery from treatment. If you are inevitably exposed to the sun, apply sunscreen to minimize the damage of sun to the skin. Avoiding the sun helps prevent hyperpigmentation and sunburn. Pay special attention to your skin during the first few days after HIFU treatment. Be very careful to stay in the shade during this period until the skin tightening process is complete.

 

Tip 2: Keep your skin hydrated

It is important to keep the skin hydrated after treatment to speed up recovery. Therefore, be sure to use a light moisturizer and drink plenty of water. This is important to help your skin recover and can also stimulate collagen production. In any case, whether we accept HIFU or not, we should always drink plenty of water.

Tip 3: Avoid hot baths or showers

Do not take a hot bath after treatment as it can aggravate sensitive skin. A hot shower also removes the skin's natural oils, making it more vulnerable. Therefore, it is very important to choose a cool shower after HIFU to soothe your skin.Using cold water also prevents skin irritation and maintains the integrity of the natural protective barrier.

 

Tip 4: Don't do exercises immediately

Do not do any strenuous exercise or lift heavy objects after treatment. When you do exercises, your body heats up and sweats. This can make your skin feel uncomfortable, especially since there may be some swelling or redness after treatment.
