Best for: SKIN lifting and tightening
HIFU (High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound) targets the entire face and neck, achieving brow lifting, jowl lifting, nasolabial fold (smile lines) reduction, periorbital wrinkle reduction and overall skin tightening and rejuvenation. The result is a naturally youthful appearance that retains full expression and movement.
The intense ultrasound energy causes actual skin rejuvenation so you look and feel younger, with none of the downsides of injectables or surgery! We treat the entire face so you won't look youthful in one area and ten years older in another!
How HIFU works
The highly focused acoustic energy creates thermal coagulation zones at 3 different selected depths, following which a wound healing response results in the formation of new collagen thus providing a longer term tightening of the skin. There is no down time associated with this non-invasive procedure.
Unlike harsh chemical peels you won't have to hide your face while it recovers. You will walk out looking completely, naturally, younger.
What areas can be improved with 3D-HIFU SKIN?
This treatment is fantastic for overall skin tightening and rejuvenation with particularly good results in lifting the jowls, reducing "turkey neck", and smoothing crows feet, smile lines and frown lines.
We also use the treatment to tighten skin on the belly post childbirth or after significant weight loss. Similarly crepey skin on the arms can be treated.
How many treatments are recommended?
One single treatment is recommended and then a maintenance treatment is advised every 18 months to 2 years.
A single treatment gives a long lasting result that will leave your skin in better condition for having had the treatment than not. Results last 18months to 2 years afterwhich the ageing process will take over. Unlike with many other treatments you will not experience a sudden "droop". The results fade naturally as you age.
HIFU has been able to deliver some very impressive results for our clients. Results can often be seen immediately after treatment but most results start approximately 2 to 8 weeks after treatment, with most clients seeing full results 12 weeks post treatment. Some results continue to improve over 6 months.
