A High Intensity Focused Ultrasound facial (HIFU) is a non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift muscle and tone loose or sagging skin without any downtime. The treatment is used for facial ageing and is short and noninvasive.
HIFU uses tried-and-true ultrasound technology, which has received FDA clearance for use in this new type of medical procedure. 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 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.
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 ageing process, which varies by individual.
Eternal Youth Australia are now able to treat those sensitive areas around the eyes and mouth with our NEW Mini HIFU treatment.
For a Full Face and Neck uplift we use two depths – 4.5mm and 3.0mm and this is for overall lifting and tightening of skin in the areas treated. We cannot treat the sensitive areas around the mouth and eyes at these depths and therefore, Eternal Youth Australia have expanded to include 1.5mm depth to our services.
This is a an alternative to PlasmaLift as there is absolutely no downtime with HIFU. Clients often see immediate results that continue to improve over 2 to 3 months and last up to 12 months.
Mini-HIFU will give you a radiant and youthful look and is great at dealing with the fine lines as well as marionette lines, nasolabial folds, frown lines, top and bottom lip and eyelids.
The 3D HIFU body treatment is a must for anyone who wants to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat. The HIFU Body Treatment combines skin tightening and fat reduction and is great for achieving a bum lift, or for tightening out “mummy tummy”. HIFU can also be used to treat abdomen, hips, flanks, muffin tops, outer thighs, inner thighs, upper arms and bra straps.
The 3D is state of the art technology is designed to specifically to target hard fat. There is no other treatment that will simultaneously destroy the fat cells AND tighten the skin.
During the treatment we use the HIFU hand piece to deliver ultrasound waves to depths of 6mm, 8mm, 13mm and 16mm (depending on the area) under the dermis layer. This causes a necrosis of the FAT CELL. The skin remains completely intact and unaffected.
The 3D HIFU Body Treatment uses ultrasound heat waves to generate thermal warming to specific areas breaking down and targeting areas, boosting the collagen and releasing the fat cells. The cells are flushed from the body naturally and over the next 3 months the body begins to heal as the skin tightens, giving you incredible results.
This is a single treatment per area however for larger areas some clients require 2 to 3 sessions.
