HIFU Skin Tightening

HIGH INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND

Look 5 to 10 years younger with HIFU. High intensity focused ultrasound energy, HIFU is the next generation in advanced, non-invasive facial lifting technology, penetrating to depths only previously possible with cosmetic surgery.

NON INVASIVE - NON SURGICAL - NO NEEDLES

With thousands of skin building energy shots, your skin is transformed from deep within its foundation… giving you cosmetic surgery results with no needles, no knife and no downtime!

HIFU is a safe, ultrasound treatment designed for anti-ageing, facial lifting and body sculpting. Micro-shots of high intensity focused ultrasound energy are beamed through the surface of the skin stimulating new collagen synthesis while at the same time tightening muscles, improving skin texture, reducing wrinkles, firming and lifting the skin, giving you a sculpted, tightened and lifted new look… naturally.

  • Reduces fine to deep lines
  • Brow & eye lifting
  • Neck lifting & tightening
  • Tighter, better fitting skin
  • Double chin reduction
  • Shapes & tightens facial contours
  • Defines jawline/ jowl lifting
  • Overall skin tightening, contouring & rejuvenation
  • Body sculpting
  • Skin lifting & plumping
  • Nasolabial fold lifting

HIFU FACE LIFT

1/2 hr – 2 1/2 hrs

HIFU Facial Lift treatments target deep into the dermis and foundation muscle layers of the skin, at 3.0mm and 4.5mm, working at the same depths as a surgical face lift !

In a full HIFU Facial Lift treatment, we deliver up to 6,000 micro shots of HIFU energy into the skin. Each micro shot stimulates the body's own natural repair response, tightening muscle and creating a new matrix of collagen that gently lifts the skin, improving the tone of all the key facial features.

The process of regeneration takes place progressively and gradually, from the deeper tissue towards the skin surface, working naturally to both uplift and rejuvenate the skin.

Areas that can be treated include around the eyes, forehead, cheeks, neck, chin and jowl areas; smile lines are softened and nasolabial folds reduced. Best visible results are seen after 6 to 10 weeks, with continual on-going improvement up to 6 months as the new collagen matrix reaches it's full strength.

HIFU GLOW FACIAL

1/2 hr – 1 1/2 hrs

In the HIFU Glow Facial we target the upper layers of the skin at a depth of 1.5mm. As new collagen regeneration is stimulated by the HIFU energy, fine lines and wrinkles are reduced, leaving you with a naturally radiant, fresh, plumped and more youthful skin… with no needles and no downtime!

This treatment is excellent for:
  • Skin refining (reduces fine lines, including lip lines and forehead)
  • Skin plumping, toning and smoothing (reduces pore size)
  • Scarring (including acne scarring and stretch marks)
  • Pigmentation

Best visible results are usually seen after 2 to 4 weeks, and the HIFU Glow Facial can be repeated on-going every 4 to 8 weeks to maintain results, depending on your age and skin type.

HIFU BODY CONTOURING& SCULPTING

From 1 1/2 hrs +

HIFU energy can be used to literally melt fat… to sculpt, contour and tighten the body. HIFU body treatments can target specific and focused areas of hard to shift body fat in the quickest way possible, destroying fat cells and reducing cellulite.

Results are achieved in just one treatment! With best results seen after 4 to 6 weeks as the process of fat elimination is completed and new collagen and elastin is formed, improving skin elasticity, tone and texture.

Body areas which are treatable with our HIFU technology includes the abdomen, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, hips and 'back-fat'.

Consultation is required to determine suitability and pricing is based on area/micro shots required.

HIFU FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is HIFU? And how does HIFU work?

Ultrasound is an oscillating pressure wave used in many different fields, having different effects – the area of surgery, and now skin lifting. The thermal effect of ultrasound is key… when focused, the high intensity vibrational energy of the ultrasonic wave is turned into heat, and this is the principal of HIFU.

The HIFU beams through the surface of the skin to deliver precise and fractional ultrasound energy to the deeper dermis, subcutaneous tissue and muscle layers, and this deeper layer is responsible for muscular activity in the face. This energy stimulates both muscle firming and new collagen production, with no disruption to the outer skin surface.

The regeneration process takes place progressively, from deeper tissue towards the skin surface, working naturally to both uplift and rejuvenate skin.

The result is lasting, significant visible skin firming and tightening after just one treatment, with clients excited to look 5 to 10 years younger!

Who is HIFU best suited to?

A good candidate for HIFU is someone with skin that has "relaxed" to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. A lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of "maturing" skin. Typically, those in their late thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates.

While HIFU is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically. There are also younger people who want to "stay ahead of the game" as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.

How long will a HIFU treatment take?

The length of your treatment depends on what you are having treated. A full face treatment and neck takes 2.5 hours and a partial face or eye lift treatment can take around 30 minutes. Body treatments will sit somewhere within that range and depend on the area size being treated.

Is there downtime?

With HIFU treatment there is NO downtime. After your treatment, you can resume your normal activities immediately. Partial face or eye lift treatments can even be done in your lunch break.

How long until you see results and do they remain?

Immediately after your HIFU treatment you may see an initial effect but the ultimate results will take place over the next 2-3 months…and continue getting better for the next 6 months! During this time your body is naturally regenerating collagen and muscles are firming. As it is your own collagen that is being generated, the length of time the results last really depends on your own body's healing response. The treatment produces new collagen and muscle firmness beneath the skin but your own natural aging process will then dictate how long that translates into visible results on the surface.

How does HIFU stimulate the production of collagen?

During the treatment, HIFU delivers focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. This jumpstarts a process known as neocollagenesis which produces fresh, new collagen naturally. HIFU treatments don't involve any creams, fillers or toxins. It is your body's own collagen-building process that is activated and creates the natural and noticeable results.

How do HIFU treatments feel?

While the ultrasound energy is being delivered you will feel tiny amounts of "energy" being deposited to precise depths of the skin. This is a positive and temporary signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort thresholds vary from person to person but the sensations only last while the treatment is being delivered. Your dermal therapist will aim to make your experience as comfortable as possible. Patients typically leave feeling excited about the benefits to come.

How many treatments will I need?

Generally only one treatment is needed every 6 months to 2 years depending on the client's age and degree of skin laxity, biological response to ultrasound energy and their individual collagen-building process. Some clients may benefit from additional treatments and future touch-up treatments can help clients keep pace with their body's natural aging process.

Are there side effects?

It is possible for the skin to appear flushed at first. This can happen during treatment but it sometimes lasts longer. If there is any redness, it should disappear within a few hours. Makeup can be worn immediately following treatment. Some clients experience a slight swelling, redness, tingling or tenderness to the touch however these are only temporary sensations. Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin.

What is the cost of HIFU?

HIFU treatment costs range widely and depend upon the size and number of areas being treated. That being said, the pricing is however well below the cost of cosmetic surgery. We have kept our pricing at 50% less than the national recommended price. Please call us to schedule your consultation.

Is HIFU a replacement for a facelift?

While HIFU treats the same deep foundational layer that cosmetic surgery treats, and offers amazing results it won't duplicate the exact results of a full surgical facelift. Yet it offers a great non-surgical alternative that is gentler and non-invasive. It is also possible to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery with HIFU.
