Ultrasound is generally considered safe for use on the face. Ultrasound is a type of energy in the form of sound waves that is used in a variety of medical and cosmetic treatments. It has been used for decades in medicine and has a good safety record when used properly.
In the field of skin care, ultrasound is often used to improve the appearance of the skin by stimulating collagen production and improving blood flow. It can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne, and uneven skin tone.
What frequency of ultrasound is safe for the face?
The safe frequency of ultrasound for use on the face depends on the specific device and the intended use. In general, ultrasound devices used for cosmetic purposes on the face typically operate at a frequency of 1 to 3 megahertz (MHz).
I would say that 3mhz is the most recommended for the face and 1mhz for the body. Typically, 3-MHz ultrasound treatments on the whole face last 8 -10 minutes. We are talking about ultrasound massager. There are other modalities of ultrasound like high intensity focus ultrasound HIFU, those are different and used only by doctors.
If you are considering using ultrasound for your skin care routine, it is important to consult with a dermatologist or other qualified skin care professional to determine the appropriate frequency and treatment plan for your individual needs.
