HIFU is a non-surgical face treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift muscle and tone loose or sagging skin without any downtime.
HIFU Full Face and Neck treatment includes treating neck, under jawline, under chin, above jawline, cheeks, under eyes and forehead.
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 actually see the layers of tissue we target during treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.
HIFU uses tried-and-true ultrasound technology, which has received FDA clearance for use in this new type of medical procedure.
HIFU deposits focused ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin to contract the facial layer as well as stimulate the body's creation of new collagen. As a result, skin will actually begin to lift and tone over time.
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 the repair process that produces fresh, new collagen.
No. Unlike a face lift, HIFU is a non-invasive procedure that addresses the skin and support layers below it, but doesn't entail cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
HIFU is an "uplift" not a "face lift". While it is not a replacement for surgery, it is a viable option for those not ready for a face lift or those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Lasers typically address issues in the superficial layers of the skin (eg 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 complimentary!
The procedure has been cleared after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and tens of thousands of treatments have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more that 50 years.
A full face treatment takes 60-90 minutes, and a partial face or brow lift treatment can take around 30 minutes - neither with any downtime.
HIFU is an entirely non-invasive procedure and as such , there is no downtime. You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take.
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.
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 up the eyes, and gives a more refreshed look overall. You can also achieve amazing results on areas such as full face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, tummy, inner thighs and knees.
Clients may enjoy some initial effect but the ultimate lifting and toning will take place over 2 to 3 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, more elastic collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a treatment.
Clients 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 aging process, which varies by individual.
The majority of clients 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). HIFU in North Lakes
Yes. What you are feeling during treatment is actually tiny amounts of focused ultrasound energy being deposited below the surface of the the skin.
Comfort thresholds vary from client to client, but there can be some discomfort while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. This is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Your clinician will consult with you prior to your skin treatment to make your experience as pleasant as possible. Clients typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come!
There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of clients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. The feeling of a muscle workout soreness is common but relieves itself quickly.
