What if we told you you could get the benefits of cosmetic surgery without an invasive, risky, unpredictable surgical procedure? That there’s a scientifically sound, noninvasive technique that, when performed by specialized and certified aestheticians, can give you striking, skin-tightening results with zero scars and virtually no downtime?

Welcome to High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, or HIFU,

Your HIFU experts are right around the corner at Bellagena, the premier Bradenton medical day spa serving Sarasota-Manatee for more than 10 years.

What Is HIFU?

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound harnesses the penetrative warmth of ultrasound to target the deepest layers of the skin. This targeting, warming technology triggers natural collagen production within the skin’s cells.

Collagen gives skin its structure and elasticity—two qualities that often break down in aging or damaged skin. By restoring collagen to all of the skin’s layers, wrinkles and lines are filled and smoothed from the inside.

How Long Does HIFU Take?

One HIFU session within our state-of-the-art medical spa can take between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the location and size of the area being targeted.

Because HIFU relies on the body’s own processes to generate a significant amount of new collagen cells, HIFU results will often be fully realized after 60 to 90 days.

Just two to three months after visiting Bellagena, many of our clients see striking results after one session. However, you may desire further treatments down the road. Because HIFU is safe, gentle and noninvasive, we are able to target more damaged skin with multiple treatments.

Is HIFU FDA-Approved?

HIFU has been an FDA-approved cosmetic procedure for more than a decade. The FDA first approved its safety and effectiveness for brown lifts in 2009. Then in 2014, HIFU was further approved to smooth lines and wrinkles in the décolletage, neckline, and upper chest areas.

The FDA’s rigorous standards ensure that HIFU is a safe cosmetic procedure. However, HIFU is still relatively new within the aesthetic industry. Not all aestheticians have been properly trained in this treatment.

Bellagena is your destination for certified, experienced HIFU experts. Furthermore, all Bellagena HIFU procedures are supervised by our medical director.

Why Do You Need to Visit Your Local southwest Florida HIFU Experts?

Unfortunately, because HIFU is so effective, its popularity has spawned far too many inexperienced practitioners performing inferior—and ultimately ineffective—HIFU procedures. When people aren’t trained properly in HIFU, they fail to harness its true, collagen-producing effects.

Located on Bradenton’s Manatee Avenue (34209), Bellagena provides personalized aesthetic care, and HIFU is among our many go-to treatments. Because every one of our team lives and works here in Manatee County, we feel personally connected to each and every one of our clients. We take your results personally.

Don’t trust your skin to fly-by-night national chain “spa” locations that churn out sub-par procedures with no real accountability or connection to the southwest Florida community. Your neighbors at Bellagena are here to greet you with a smile and the personalized, highly effective HIFU treatments that will leave you looking good and feeling amazing. We’ll see to it.
