HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a clinically proven medical grade technology, for non invasive is a breakthrough, non-surgical procedure for lifting and tightening sagging skin and the reduction of lines and wrinkles. This advanced technology is able to achieve results that were once only possible with surgery!
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, causing a thermal reaction to deep structures, such as SMAS (Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System), where the connective tissue starts to weaken. It works deep below the surface to stimulate the growth of collagen “without harming the outer layer of skin”. This results in long-lasting firming, tightening and lifting of the skin, giving you a more youthful appearance after just one treatment.
Dramatic results can be achieved with only one or two sessions!
How does it work?
HIFU is a typical non surgical treatment that stimulates collagen within the SMAS and dermis, and induces skin tightening. It can effectively induce the contraction of both without stimulation by focusing ultrasonic waves in a specific part of the Dermal tissue.
The SMAS layer is located in the depth of 4.5mm from the facial surface and means a layer of tissue that covers, surrounds and attaches to the deeper tissues and structures of the face. When this layer is loosened, the facial muscle gets sagged and it makes you look older. By delivering energy to the muscle fascia and creating focal coagulation points HIFU tightens the muscle fascia and gets excellent lighting results.
By revitalizing aged collagen and elastin in depth of 3.0mm it’s guarantees various treatment effects like wrinkle reduction, skin tightening and skin tone improvement.
By delivering HIFU energy to the epidermis layer, you can get various treatment effects like wrinkle reduction around the areas of the eyes and the mouth where the skin is thin, and skin tightening.
How long do the results of HIFU last?
HIFU results are permanent and will continue improving gradually for up to six months following the treatment. You will not be frozen in time. After six months, as with any age defying treatment, your skin will naturally continue to age but HIFU can give you fresher, younger looking skin for approximately 24 months after your treatment.
People who have open lesions or wounds, cystic acne, existing keloid scarring, mechanical or dermal implants, skin fillers or other injectables, implanted electrical devices or metal implants in the face or treated area, pregnancy or breastfeeding, angiocardiopathy (heart), hypertension, liver and kidney diseases, skin disease, including AIDS & HIV, highly sensitive skin or allergic skin (including protein allergy) should not proceed with HIFU.
How safe is HIFU?
HIFU uses the safe, time-tested ultrasound, which has been effective in clinical studies and over 350,000 patient treatments worldwide. Ultrasound has been used safely in the medical field for over 50 years. HIFU (also called Ultherapy) is one of the few treatments, safe for all skin types, as it uses ultrasound and bypasses the upper layers of skin where the pigment cells are located.
Are there any side effects from HIFU?
HIFU may cause a slight redness to the skin, but this usually disappears within a matter of hours after the treatment. Face can feel like it has had a workout for several weeks afterwards. Makeup application after the treatment can be made to mask any mild redness that may have occurred. Some people may also suffer from a slight swelling, tenderness, numbness or tingling sensation. These symptoms are usually mild and only last temporarily.
How painful is HIFU?
HIFU may cause some discomfort. Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.
During the treatment delivery, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
After Your Treatment
There is no downtime! You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements. Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours.
