What is 4D HIFU?
As opposed to regular HIFU, machines that can also provide 4D HIFU can focus the ultrasound at a customisable treatment depth. The fact that 4D HIFU treatment can reach the SMAS layer, makes it the most effective treatment in the stimulation and renewal of the skin’s collagen.
What is 5/6/7/8/9D HIFU?
These are largely made up terms which are commonly used by cheap machine manufacturers. You might think you’re getting an extra five “Ds” with a 9D machine, but that’s unfortunately not how it works!
What if this is the only HIFU machine I can afford?
The bottom line is if you cannot afford a safe HIFU machine, you should not buy a HIFU machine.
You might be able to get away with buying a cheap equivalent of a massage gun, or treatment table for your clinic if you’re somewhat strapped for cash, but a HIFU machine alters the appearance of the face or body by boosting collagen and sometimes reducing fat underneath, depending on the treatment depth. Although it is a non-invasive treatment, it is one in which damage could be done to the patient’s face or body if the practitioner was using a cheap or poorly calibrated machine.
