WHAT IS HIFUTHERAPY?
HIFU known as High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is a non-surgical facial skin tightening treatment that used ultrasound to lift and tone loose skin without surgery.
HIFU targets the skin and its deep foundational layer of tissue that would usually be addressed in surgery, but without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
WHAT CAN IT DO FOR YOU?
- lift and shape de jowl area and jowl line
- tightening loose skin on the stomach
- reduce excess skin on upper eyelid
- lifting the brow
HOW DOES IT WORK?
With a HIFU treatment what we are doing is heating small, targeted amounts of soft tissue below the surface of the skin to a level where the tissue will contract and the body will create new collagen which will lift and tighten your skin without disrupting the surface. In order to achieve a significant lifting effect, the right amount of heat needs to be delivered to the right depths off tissue, and this fantastic treatment is capable of accomplishing both without any injury to the surface of the skin.
Combining Treatments to get the best Results.
Combining HIFU which will lift and tighten the skin, including smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles and then combining fillers to fill volume loss in certain areas. Combining HIFU with Botox to provide superior results in tone, texture, tightening and lifting. This will address vertical/horizontal lines rather than the HIFU treatment to smooth skin and lift brow.
HIFU is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. The treatment use the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
HIFU treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won’t duplicate the results of a facelift.However is a great alternative, especially for those not ready for surgery or for clients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
During the treatment the transducer delivers and deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperatures for collagen regeneration. The treatment jump starts a natural process to produce fresh, new collagen.
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your own individual treatment plan .A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment on its own takes approximately 30 minutes.
With a single HIFU treatment there is no down time. After the procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels very from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.
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.
A good HIFU candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin and lines or wrinkles on the chest.
The HIFU procedure has been used safely in over 250.000 treatments worldwide. Utrasouned energy itself has been used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years.
The skin might appear flushed at first,this can be during treatment but sometimes lasting longer, the redness should however disappear within a few hours. Some clients experience slight swelling, tingling tenderness to the touch, but this are temporary in nature.
Other less common effects may include temporary bruising or numbness small areas of skin. As with any cosmetic procedure, there is the possibility of other rare effects which will be discussed with you during the initial consultation.
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. The treatment produce new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
The costs of an HIFU treatment can range depending upon the area being treated.
