HIFU

                                                 

HIFU FACE LIFT without surgery

HIFU stands for high intensity focused ultrasound

Reaching the SMAS Layers.

As we age collagen production slows down. Our face, neck and décolletage will start to lose tone and elasticity and we often notice our skin becoming looser and starts to sag. This can cause pconcern around the jawline or jowls, the neck and brow area; ageing us beyond our years.

Our HIFU treatment uses Ultrasound energy which targets the deep structural layers of the skin. By targeting heat at specific depths we can kick start the body’s healing response, this naturally increases the levels of collagen in the tissues. As collagen increases, this leads to a gentle lifting and tightening of the skin. Helping to reduce the signs of ageing, for a younger, and tighter skin giving a younger appearance.*

HIFU is able to reach tissues that other anti-ageing treatments can’t affect. This makes HIFU a very popular alternative to surgery or more invasive treatments such as thread lifts or injectable toxins and fillers 

 

THE TREATMENT PROCESs

The ultrasound probe is evenly moved over the treatment areas in order to allow the high intensity focused ultrasound waves to reach the underlying connective tissue and generate the desired skin-tightening effects , lifting can be carried out gently.


This gentle form of lifting can be used on the entire face to combat sagging skin. The following areas are ideal for treatment: the neck region, chin, cheeks and eyebrow area.

During a session, an individual area can be treated or all areas can be treated at once.


HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?


A single treatment takes between 30 minutes, but we apply a mask after the treatment so you will be at the clinic for 1hr. approximately,depending on the area to be treated. 


HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY? This depends on individuals, age and condition of the skin.

 
Generally, excellent results can be achieved after just one HIFU treatment.  It carries on working for 3-4 mths. Generally lasts up to 3 yrs.

An additional treatment may be carried out no earlier than 3 months afterthe first. In order to promote collagen growth and regeneration, we recommended the use of special cosmetics. We’re happy to advise you regarding the appropriate products to use.


 

 

 

 

 

SIDE EFFECTS


After treatment, you can immediately resume your normal activities because the skin’s upper layers are not damaged by the high intensity ultrasound. In some cases, slight redness or swelling may occur, which will quickly subside. There may also be a slight sensitivity to touch and some light tingling sensation, this can persist for a few weeks. In very rare cases, bruising and temporary local numbness may occur. These side effects disappear after a few days.
