HIFU

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound


HIFU or high frequency focused Ultrasound system is a non-invasive ultrasonic focusing technique.

The ultrasonic energy is delivered deep within the skin and causes a thermal reaction, high heat will directly focus on the connective tissue.

Non-invasive Ultrasound energy specifically targets the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) and as a result, collagenproduction is stimulated and the process of tissue regeneration begins. This causes tightening and lifting of the skin and tissues resulting in a lifted appearance and a tightened feeling.

This fantastic treatment offers a non-invasive and affordable alternative to more invasive treatments such as facelifts with no downtime. HIFU specifically targets the same muscular layer as targeted during a facelift.

The health and vitality of the skin’s surface improves and tightens in just one session.

HIFU Areas

It can be used on the face and body where lifting and tightening is required to include:

  • Brow Lifting
  • Jowl Lifting
  • Mid Face Lifting
  • Nasolabial Fold Reduction or Marionette Line Reduction
  • Neck Lifting
  • Lifting the Décolleté or Brazilian Bum Lifting

Aftercare

Following a treatment using the HIFU machine, the skin may show erythema, a tight feeling, and slight prickling or tingling in places.

These effects may continue for a few hours. In some rare cases they may last for a period of days. Avoid using any make-up following a HIFU treatment for up to 12 hours. Some results will be visible immediately following a treatment (approx. 10%) and effects will continue for up to 90 days following the treatment.

If any further treatments are required, please leave a minimum of 12 weeks before further treatments.

 Treatments

Clients usually need one to three sessions, with a minimum of twelve weeks (90 days) between each treatment. In a two-year period, there should be no more than three treatments.

Treatments should never feel too painful. However, it may get uncomfortable in sensitive areas. You will be asked to score the feeling between 1 and 10 (10 being the most painful).
