HIFU HIFU is the latest innovative, most sought after, non surgical treatment which is used for lifting the face and excellent for tightening the neck. It can also be used for body contouring due to its ability to dissolve fat and is especially good for loose upper arms or stubborn abdominal fat. And amazingly there is no down time. Recent clinical studies discuss how HIFU is a safe, effective, and noninvasive procedure that can improve facial wrinkles and skin laxity. It is particularly effective for clinical improvement in the jawline, cheek, and perioral areas. For the Face It tightens the skin, irons out wrinkles, shrinks pores, targets the ‘V’ line formation and Jowel lines. HIFU works by emitting a precisely controlled focused beam of ultrasound. The beam passes harmlessly through the outer layer of the skin and is concentrated at the right depth to produce the correct temperatures needed to generate new collagen and elastin which will result in tighter, smoother skin. The technology is unique in its ability to penetrate the dermis and the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer. No other technology can target these layers deep within the skin in a non-invasive procedure. SMAS is the same layer which is tightened during conventional facelift surgery. Unlike surgery, HIFU is more affordable and requires no time off work.

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound emitts tiny beams into the skin. The heat produced by these beams stimulates collagen which grows and repairs. Collagen works to tighten the skin. Collagen depletes as we get older, which is noticed when the skin becomes loose. HIFU reactivates this collagen, which makes the skin tighter and more youthful in appearance. How long until I see results? Full results are visible after 3 months but within 4 weeks improvement begins to happen and can be noticed. How many treatments will I need? This will depend on your needs and expectations. The procedure can produce long-lasting results, but some people may benefit from a top-up treatment. However, most of our clients see effective results from only one treatment. How long will the results last? It is important to remember that we all carry on ageing and every person ages differently. On this basis results can last upto 9 – 12 months. Clients own lifestyle also has a factor to play and the more a client follows a healthy regime the longer the results will last and the skin will look better and better. What areas can it be used for? The HIFU Face Lift is ideal for treating signs of ageing around the eyes, and mouth. It can also help to reduce sagging skin on the cheeks.
