HIFU Treatment Aftercare: What to do and avoid?


HIFU Treatment Aftercare

After your HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) treatment, you should follow these aftercare instructions to get the best outcome and prevent problems. Here are the dos and don’ts:

Sun Protection:

On daylight if you are planning to go outside, don’t forget to apply sunblock with SPF 30+. It is crucial to prevent sunburn and continue to avoid sun exposure for a few weeks after treatment.

Skin Care:

Cold water only to wash your skin after the HIFU treatment to lock in oils. If you need to use hot water, make sure it’s not too hot – lukewarm is better for helping your skin recover oils faster. No hot baths, showers, or heat for a few days after the HIFU treatment to avoid skin irritation.

General Care:

Allow your skin to rest and breathe right after the treatment. Don’t put on makeup or any other cosmetic that is not recommended by your aesthetic practitioner. Also, follow their general care guide for the best possible results and to avoid any unnecessary side effects.


Complications and Precautions:

  • Make sure there are no cold sores or fever blisters in the treatment area before HIFU treatment as these need to be treated as soon as possible with an anti-viral medication.
  • Avoid any chemicals that can irritate the skin to prevent interference.
  • Don’t exfoliate or scrub for a week after treatment which can irritate your skin.
  • Avoid alcohol, smoking, or sauna for a week after treatment to prevent skin inflammation.

Don’t forget aftercare is just as important as the treatment and pre-treatment for HIFU as it affects the results and longevity. If you have any questions about your HIFU aftercare, always consult your dermatologist or practitioner for personal advice.
