HIFU technology is not like lasers, radio frequency, super and other technologies. The HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) steer around the surface of the skin to deliver the precise and fractional of ultrasound energy. The energy stimulates the new collagen to reproduce, which rejuvenates the skin leading to a more youthful and brighter contouring. It is especially suitable for treating sagging skin with reasonable thickness.
HIFU is the facelift you have without surgery – that means no downtime, no needles – and nobody will ever know! Results produce a tighter, brighter, firmer and more lifted face and/or body in just 60-90 minutes. And, better still, the results continue to improve over the next 6 months!
Frequently Asked Questions
We recommend the treatment for anyone experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity. This treatment is not recommended for people with infections and open skin lesions at the target area, severe or cystic acne, and metallic implants in the treatment area.
HIFU works with an ultrasound penetrating the skin to heat up the muscle tissue, allowing for your body to reproduce collagen and heal the tissue.
Acoustic energy is applied to the area you’d like to improve and tighten, this reaches the subcutaneous layer. 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 vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. There is no downtime after this treatment.
The number of treatments depends on the degree of skin laxity. We would generally recommend 1-3 treatments depending on the area treated and the results from the last treatment.
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan.
A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment on its own takes approximately 30 minutes.
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. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural ageing process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
