HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) treatments are a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that rejuvenates aging skin. It heats up the skin tissue this causes stimulation to the targeted area. As the area heals, the skin produces more collagen, resulting in tighter and younger-looking skin.
Botox is the more attractive alternative treatment for those who have a particular event coming up and would like to look and feel better within themselves with instant results. Whereas if immediacy is not an issue and you're more concerned about the long-term effects, then HIFU almost certainly wins out. While it is not a replacement for surgery, it is a viable option for those who are not ready for a face lift by cosmetic surgery. HIFU is the only non-invasive technology that can target the SMAS layer.
The HIFU facelift does not duplicate the results achieved by a surgical facelift, but it represents an extremely effective non -surgical solution. The breakthrough in non-surgical facelift technology can offer an excellent and safe alternative to surgical intervention.
How does HIFU work?
A HIFU facial uses ultrasound to create heat at a deep level in the skin. This heat damages targeted skin cells, causing the body to try to repair them. To do this, the body produces collagen to aid in cell regrowth. Collagen is a substance in the skin that gives it structure and elasticity.
Nonsurgical ultrasound treatments such as HIFU can:
Tighten the skin on the neck
Reduce the appearance of jowls
Lift drooping eyelids or eyebrows
Smooth wrinkles on the face
How Many HIFU Treatments Will I Need?
Most clients only need one treatment. However, this may be based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual's collagen-building process, some clients may benefit from additional treatments.
There is no downtime for clients undergoing the procedure and you may return to your normal everyday activities immediately after treatment. The ideal candidates are those with early signs of loose sagging, wrinkly or even sun damaged skin. In the weeks that follow treatment the treated area appears lifted, firmer and toned. Whilst fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced as skin tightens the popular problem areas for treatment which include brow lifting, jowl line lifting, nasolabial fold reduction and perioral wrinkle reduction. Side effects may include reddening of the skin, but this subsides within a few hours.
After your HIFU Treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you.
It is one of the most used procedures to stimulate the collagen production and strengthen the skin structure. Radio frequency enables skin tightening and an improvement of the skin’s appearance painlessly without post-op downtime that may come with surgical procedures or other invasive procedures. RF also improves blood flow and lymphatic drainage and provides a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance.
Using low frequency ultrasound bubbles are created in the liquid of the fat cells. these bubbles implode, destroying fat cells. The liquid contents of the fat cells are safely eliminated through your lymphatic system to be used as energy. Cavitation works amazingly for inch loss and body sculpting as well as to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
All these procedures do not require incisions, needles or any risks associated with surgical procedures. Unlike liposuction there is no recovery time required therefor it's possible to return to your usual daily schedule straight after treatment.
Treatments take from 1-2 hours and are tailored to our individual client needs.
