Compared to actual surgical facelift, HIFU can achieve very satisfactory results. However, if put into actual comparison, the results of surgical facelift is instant and proved effective. However it also comes with risks associated with surgery (Bleeding, hematoma, bruising. Infection. Neurological dysfunction).
While HIFU cannot completely replace surgical facelift, it provides an excellent non surgical alternative. More importantly, the results of HIFU provides a very natural lift (does not look like you have done surgery).
