The next best thing to a face lift.
HIFU is the most sought after lifting treatment for the face and neck. The treatment lifts, tightens, tones and reduces loose skin to counteract the effects of both time and gravity.
The high intensity focused ultrasound penetrates the foundation layer of your skin, bypassing the surface of the skin and delivering a targeted energy specifically into the deep, structural tissues and muscles where collagen lives. As the collagen fibres rejuvenate and shorten there is a tightening effect and gently and gradually the skin and tissue memory is restored.
This treatment really comes into its own for lifting and tightening the cheek area and sharpening the jowls and jawline; lifting the brow; reducing wrinkles around the forehead, eyes and lips; reducing excess skin on upper eyelids; improving the chin outline and reducing marionette lines; removing the ageing wrinkles from the neck; improving the skin quality and tightening loose skin.
There is no special preparation or recuperation and usually takes one treatment to gain a noticeable result. Some clients enjoy an initial effect immediately following the treatment, but the ultimate lifting will take place in just 2 to 8 weeks, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and replenished.
The treatment is a one off and lasts anywhere between 6 months to 1 or 2 years depending on your age, diet and lifestyle.
The clients make up is removed. A gel is applied to the area that will be treated and the ultrasonic device is passed over the skin. After the treatment we give you a mini facial.
A single area can be treated say the jowls which takes around 30 to 40 minutes. A full face and neck treatment takes around 90 minutes.
The results take around 2 weeks to start to see an an effect and the full results take up to 8 weeks. We will have you in for a radio frequency treatment at 2 weeks which boosts the effects of the treatment.
There can be a slight redness, swelling, tenderness and occasionally bruising. This will settle down quickly.
There is no downtime.
The high intensity frequency ultrasound targets the same layer of skin addressed in cosmetic surgery, the SMAS, the superficial musculo aponeurotic system. The treatment tightens the muscle layer as well as tightening the skin and boosting collagen.
HIFU facelift bypasses the surface of the skin, and delivers targeted energy specifically into the deep, structural tissues and muscles where collagen lives. The HIFU treatment works by penetrating the skin with ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in the deep dermal and subdermal levels, resulting in micro injury to that tissue. As the tissue heals, it increases collagen. As these collagen fibres organise and shorten, a tightening effect is seen on the skin.
The HIFU facelift is the perfect alternative if you don’t want surgery.
