How does Intense Beam Ultrasound compare with Microfocused Ultrasound?

Among the devices that tighten skin through neocollagenesis, let’s do a pedigree-to-pedigree comparison of Intense Beam and Microfocused Ultrasound. Both work on the principle of High Frequency Focused Ultrasound (HIFU). Both produce skin changes with a single treatment that continues to improve for months.

Notice we have left out the copycat HIFUs a plenty.

Comparison between Intense Beam and Microfocused Ultrasound

  Intense Beam Microfocused
Other HIFU Yes Yes
Thermal Zone (the trigger neocollagenesis) Longitudinal with uniform oval shaped cross-section Tear drop shaped with upper part near the epidermis


Treatment depth Fixed, for comfort and optimal results Offers 3 treatment depths for tightening the SMAS, and in some cases, facial sculpting as an off-label indication.


Comfort Typically does not require topical anesthesia. Needs topical anesthesia for a full-face treatment.






What is the prices for the Intense Beam and Microfocused Ultrasound treatment?

Treatments are priced at $3800 for the full face and upper neck areas. In fact it is the same with a branded RF skin tightening treatment that we also have.


How long does each treatment last?

The collagen that is produced after each Intense Beam and Microfocused Ultrasound treatment is your own. It will not degrade like a dermal filler. But we all age a bit every year. So, it would be good as a preventive treatment to repeat the treatments every year.
