Our HIFU uses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, a must-have technology that safely targets the tissues in the deeper layers of the skin, with the ability to treat both skin and fat. When targeting the skin, the treatment stimulates collagen production and tissue regeneration.
This ground breaking procedure is designed to lift and firm the skin, unveiling a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. By harnessing the power of focused ultrasound energy, the HIFU technology bypasses the surface of the skin and precisely targets the deep structural foundation layers of the skin and muscle, a feat comparable only to cosmetic surgery. Through this process, tissue rejuvenation is activated, and collagen production is stimulated, resulting in a radiant and wrinkle-free complexion. The greatest advantage lies in the fact that these remarkable results can be achieved after just a single session, eliminating the need for drastic and costly surgical interventions and underscoring its exceptional value.
HIFU, or High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound uses a specialized transducer emits ultrasound energy waves, which induce thermal coagulation in the targeted tissue while safeguarding the skin’s surface from harm. Subsequent to the initial treatment, the skin initiates a natural wound healing process, sparking the synthesis and regeneration of collagen. This, in turn, yields the formation of new, shorter collagen fibers that provide longer-lasting skin tightening effects, distinguishing our solution from other treatments available in the market.
When used to treat the face, HIFU is delivered deep into the skin and causes thermal coagulation to SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System). Skin tightening and rejuvenation happens
gradually over time.
HIFU has also been proven effective in body sculpting when used to reduce subcutaneous fat and improve body contour. When treating localised fat, HIFU delivers macro energy into subcutaneous fat to selectively remove fat cells; this achieves localised destruction of fat at precise tissue depths without damaging the skin or surrounding tissues. Body HIFU is an ideal option for individuals seeking a non-surgical solution for skin tightening, contouring, and body sculpting. Whether you’re looking to address mild to moderate skin laxity or want to enhance the definition of specific body areas such as the non-surgical tummy tuck or the non-surgical breast lift, this innovative treatment can help you achieve your goals.
The treatment can be carried out on various target areas, including the face, neck, stomach, thighs, arms, back, knees and chest; HIFU is popular with bothmen and women!
Does HIFU hurt?
It is a non-invasive procedure but some clients may experience a slight discomfort like a prickling sensation under the skin as the applicator is used. Any discomfort us brief and typically depends on the area being treated, the clients skin sensitivity and the settings used.
How many treatments will I need?
In lots of cases a single session of HIFU skin tightening can be sufficient. However, the outcome can hinge on factors like the individual’s response to the treatment, diligent adherence to aftercare, initial collagen levels, and the desired results. As a general rule, those aged 40 and above or individuals with notable skin sagging might find benefit in a second session around the 6-month mark.
Is there any downtime?
No, there is no downtime or recovery needed. Clients can resume all of their daily activities straight away.
What is the best age for HIFU?
A HIFU face lift treatment is ideal for anyone who wants to lift and tighten their face and neck as well as delay the signs of ageing.
How soon can I expect results?
An immediate effect can be noticed following treatment, with clients’ facial contours and fine wrinkles showing competent improvement after four weeks of treatment. As the procedure continues to work for up to six months and as the collagen fibres reorganise and restructure themselves. Clients may notice further improvements such as skin firming and tightening during this time. Results from one treatment will last between one and two years, depending on clients’ current skin laxity and age
HIFU is based on hyperthermia lifting theory. The HIFU transducer irradiates 65 – 75°C of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy, this creates thermal coagulation on the target layers of skin tissue with no damage to the skin surface. Following the initial treatment, the skin starts to undergo a wound healing process that stimulates collagen synthesis and regeneration. The formation of new collagen provides longer-term tightening on the skin. In simpler terms, unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, HIFU bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jump starting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.
HIFU, when used for fat reduction and body sculpting, deliver outstanding results. The HIFU energy is used to penetrate through the skin layers and into the targeted fat tissue without causing any harm to the skin. The energy is delivered at the subcutaneous depth; this energy effectively and non-invasively destroys targeted subcutaneous fat and achieve superior results.
Clients in their 20s
People in their early to mid 20s will probably not require treatment to correct the signs of aging. During these years your body has not yet begun to “age” and your skin is still producing new, strong, elastic collagen. However, collagen breakdown tends to begin in our late 20s so if you want to delay the effects of ageing for as long as possible, undergoing a HIFU treatment in your late 20s can help you do that.
Clients in their 30s
It’s during this decade of their life that most people begin to discover the effects of ageing on their skin. Provided you’re experiencing mild to moderate skin sagging, loss of elasticity, or fine lines and wrinkles, your 30s are the perfect time to undergo treatment to delay the signs of ageing.
Clients in their 40s
Those aged 40 to 50 are in the most common age group to undergo HIFU treatments. Much like your 30s, your skin will continue to lose collagen and show the noticeable signs of ageing and typically become increasingly pronounced during this decade of your life. HIFU is the perfect solution to effectively address your concerns and help rejuvenate, revitalize, tighten and lift your loose, sagging skin.
Clients in their 50s.
A significant amount of skin laxity, deep wrinkles, creases or fissures generally occurs in your 50s or beyond and HIFU is able to create a skin tightening element which is unlike any other procedure without going under the knife.
Clients in their 60s and beyond.
Providing no excess sagginess has appeared HIFU is also suitable for older ages. Clients in their 60s and beyond may require several treatments to see the best results
