Only ONE treatment for AMAZING RESULTS!
Put ageing skin back in its place — without a surgical face-lift.
Sagging skin gives you tired-looking eyes and distorts the contours of your face at the chin and neck.
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) lifts and tightens skin for a non-surgical face lift and neck lift.
Common treatment areas include:
- Brow and forehead
HIFU – is one of the most popular and highly developed systems available. Non-invasive ultrasound energy generates low levels of heat in the targeted skin. This stimulates the cells for collagen production and tissue rejuvenation. With just one treatment, HIFU pushes mature skin to start working hard again. Smoother, firmer, and brighter skin in the months after treatment.
Your eyes will look more open, brows more lifted, fine lines softened, and pore reduced. Because of the restored elasticity, your skin will feel softer and suppler, too. If you don’t think you need surgery yet or simply hate the thought of the knife, HIFU may be the natural face-lift or neck lift alternative for you. Don’t let gravity get you down.
- Blurred jawline
- Drooping, especially around the mouth
- Saggy eyelids
- Loose neck folds
- Thin, crepe-y skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
What is High Intensity Focused Ultrasound?
HIFU is a non-surgical face treatment that uses ultrasound to lift muscle and tone loose or sagging skin without any downtime. It can be done Alone or combined with a special Hifu Facial for better results.
What is unique about this procedure?
HIFU is the only non-invasive treatment that can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin that is addressed in cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. It is also the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to see the layers of tissue we target during treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.
What does collagen do? How does HIFU stimulate the creation of collagen?
Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed, toned and elastic. As we age, collagen loses its elasticity and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. HIFU jump starts a repair process that produces fresh, new collagen.
How is HIFU different from lasers?
Lasers typically address issues in the superficial layers of the skin (e.g. fine lines, wrinkles, pigment changes). HIFU addresses the deep skin layer and the foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery that lift and lend support to the skin. Therefore, the two technologies are quite complementary!
Is there any downtime?
HIFU is an entirely non-invasive procedure and as such, there is no downtime. You can return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take.
Who is a good candidate for HIFU?
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 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.
What problem areas does HIFU target? What kind of results do you get?
HIFU addresses mild to moderate loose or sagging skin. Specifically, by reconditioning and renewing the skin from within, HIFU will lift the brow, which in turn reduces excess skin on the lids, opens the eyes, and gives a more refreshed look overall. As well as full face, neck, chest, arms, and elbows.
How long do results last and ill I need more than one treatment?
Patients treated with HIFU still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure and can continue for up to another year depending on the condition of the skin. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the ageing process, which varies by individual. Most patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment (depending on how much laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and collagen- building process).
Will I feel the ultrasound during the treatment and what does it feel like?
Yes. What you are feeling during the treatment is tiny amounts of focused ultrasound energy being deposited below the surface of the skin. Patients have noted there can be a slight discomfort while the ultrasound energy is being delivered, but it is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
