A Comprehensive HIFU Aftercare Guide

A Comprehensive HIFU Aftercare Guide

At SR Caviar, we understand the significance of HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) treatments in non-invasive facial rejuvenation. In this comprehensive guide, we delve into the do's and don'ts of HIFU aftercare to help you achieve the best possible results from your treatment.


The Importance of HIFU Aftercare

While HIFU doesn't leave your skin visibly damaged, it's crucial to understand that aftercare plays a pivotal role in maximising the effectiveness of your treatment. The healing process and final results depend greatly on how well you care for your skin post-HIFU. We prioritise your investment and well-being at SR Caviar, so we've gathered essential aftercare tips to guide you.


Post-HIFU Guidelines

1. Avoid Exfoliation and Scrubbing

In the initial week following your HIFU treatment, refrain from exfoliating or using harsh scrubs. Exfoliation can exacerbate skin irritation and inflammation. Prioritise gentle care to support the healing process.


2. Say No to Alcohol, Smoking, and Saunas

To prevent skin inflammation after HIFU, it's advisable to abstain from alcohol, smoking, and sauna visits for a specific period after the procedure. These activities can hinder the recovery process.


3. Skip Ice Packs

While using ice packs to reduce post-treatment swelling may be tempting, many reputable dermatologists advise against it. Ice packs may compromise the effectiveness of HIFU treatments like Ultherapy and Thermage. Instead, opt for a gentle and cooling sheet mask at room temperature. Choose one that offers hydration, soothing, and cooling benefits.


Consider using the Ocean Secret Hydra Brightening Overnight Mask for optimal results.


4. Avoid Skincare Products with Active Ingredients

After HIFU treatment, your skin becomes sensitive. Therefore, it's best to steer clear of skincare products containing active ingredients like retinol and Vitamin C. Focus on soothing and moisturising your skin to aid recovery.


SR Caviar's Recommended Post-HIFU Skincare Routine

To ensure you get the best possible results from your HIFU treatment, follow our carefully curated skincare routine. We understand that your skin may be irritated, and the skin barrier may be compromised. Therefore, we recommend specific skincare ingredients to promote healing and skin regeneration.


1. Gentle Facial Cleanser

Choose a gentle facial cleanser to prevent skin irritation, especially one that does not contain alcohol. We recommend the Ocean Secret Hydra Brightening Cleansing Gel. It's a mild cleanser formulated with hydrating ingredients like plant cell extract. This cleanser will keep your skin hydrated and maintain its softness after cleansing.



2. Hydrating Products

Since your skin may become dry after HIFU, opt for products with hydrating ingredients. We advise switching to gentle and mild products designed for skin moisturisation, hydration, and soothing.



3. Daily SPF Protection

We strongly recommend using sunscreen with SPF30 or higher daily following your HIFU treatment. Our top pick is the CaviarLUXE PerfectUV Sunscreen SPF50 PA++++. It effectively relieves and calms your skin without leaving a greasy residue or white cast.



4. Gentle Makeup Products

While it's generally acceptable to wear makeup on the same day as your HIFU treatment, choosing makeup products made with gentle ingredients is wise to avoid skin irritation.


5. Hydration and Rest

Stay well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water to support your skin and body. Ensure you get sufficient rest as it is essential for the skin recovery.


6. Vitamin C and Collagen Supplements

Consider incorporating Vitamin C and collagen supplements into your daily routine to enhance skin regeneration. We recommend the Denps Innersil Collagen Shot, which contains 3,270mg of Fish Collagen Peptide and 1000% of Biotin. This supplement supports skin health and a healthy immune system, helping boost collagen production post-HIFU.


In conclusion, SR Caviar is committed to ensuring that your HIFU investment yields remarkable results. Follow our comprehensive aftercare guide and recommended products to promote healing, skin regeneration, and lasting radiance. Remember that individual results may vary, and it's always advisable to consult with a dermatologist regarding your specific aftercare needs.
