HIFU is a non surgical treatment that aims to tackle drooping jowls & neck, prominent nose to mouth lines or a heavy brow. As we age, collagen production slows down. Our face, neck, décolletage and certain body areas will slowly lose tone and elasticity. Often we’ll notice our skin becoming looser or starting to sag.
The energy used during a HIFU treatment generates heat in the deeper layers of the skin (specifically targeting the SMAS layer), causing a thermal reaction which triggers the body’s natural healing response and formation of new collagen and tissue regeneration.
This process leads to a lifting and tightening effect on the skin, reducing the signs of ageing, for a younger, more defined and sculpted look. HIFU can reach tissues that other anti-ageing treatments can’t. This makes HIFU a very popular alternative to surgery or other more invasive treatments.
Over time, collagen fibres begin to lose elasticity, which in turn causes the skin to lose its firmness and start to sag. HIFU is unmatched by other non-invasive treatments, with its ability to treat the tissues usually addressed during surgical procedures.
Benefits of treatment include;
- Brow Lifting
- Jowl Lifting
- Nasolabial Fold Reduction
- Marionette Line Reduction
- Face & Neck Lifting
- Body area lifting & tightening
Using ultra-sound waves, the superficial muscles are targeted. The tissues are heated to a range between 60-70˚C, thus the natural wound healing process is stimulated to create new collagen and elastin.
After treatment your Practitioner will again go through any aftercare advice in order to maximise your treatment benefits and avoid any undesirable side effects. The treatment takes about an hour but may be combined with other treatments as well.
This treatment is minimally invasive, you may leave the Clinic with some slight redness which will subside within 24 hours. There is no need to hide in the house afterwards, most patients are out and about. Just keep your skin covered and protected from the sun and look forward to a gradual lifting and tightening effect.
