High Intensity Focused Ultrasound

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedures in the world. This revolutionary treatment is the only FDA approved treatment specifically targeting lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. It is clinically proven to get results only previously attainable through surgery or invasive procedures such as botox.

HIFU harnesses the power of ultrasound to safely lift and tighten the skin. Unlike similar treatments such as laser or radio frequency, the high intensity focused ultra sound can penetrate deeper into the skin, targeting skin breakdown at its foundation layer, where structural weakening starts. 

HIFU uses concentrated beams of ultrasound energy to rejuvenate the skin in precisely targeted areas. The treatment acts to tighten the dermis, and promotes new sub-dermal collagen formation.  Overall skin retraction will, of course, depend on the specific individual.

Drooping skin makes your eyes look tired and changes the contours of the neck and chin. How great it would be if you can keep the aging skin back? High-intensity focused ultrasound firms and lifts your skin for a non-surgical neck lift and facelift.

What are the benefits for the High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Treatment procedure?

HIFU can be used wherever skin starts to sag or lose suppleness.  For the face, this is typically under the chin, around the jawline, around the eyes, and under the brows.

Some tightening of the skin is normally observed immediately after treatment, and the effect increases over the ensuing weeks due to new collagen formation in conjunction with the continued retraction of connective tissue matrix.

Treatments are typically repeated until no further benefit can be achieved.  The number needed will depend on the degree of tissue laxity and the client’s goals.  The effectiveness will also be limited by the skin’s ability to rejuvenate.

Normally the effect of a single treatment lasts three to six months, with a peak occurring midway, followed by a gradual regression.  For most people, a program of four treatments is needed to achieve the maximum response from the technology.  An annual maintenance session is recommended.

What happens during HIFU treatment?

Your therapist will cleanse and tone the skin prior to treatment, the face is then marked out with a white pencil to ensure the correct areas will be targeted. Ultrasound gel is applied to the skin and the handpiece lightly pressed to the skin. Each ultrasound shot is carried out one by one across the skin with each necessary cartridge. Ultrasound gel will be removed and finishing products will be applied.

Frequent Asked Questions

The HIFU procedure has been used safely in over 1,000000 treatments worldwide. HIFU is the only FDA cleared non-surgical facelift treatment available. Ultrasound energy itself has been used safely in all aspects of the medical field for over 50 years.

Clients can experience momentary discomfort during the procedure whilst the ultrasound energy is being deposited into the skin. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered

With the HIFU treatment there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.

After your Treatment, you may notice some initial positive effects such as lifting and toning, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.

The skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Sometimes you experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are temporary in nature. Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin.

Most you only need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help you keep pace with the body’s natural aging process.

It demands 1 hour for every 10 grams of tissue.

You will be given anesthesia before the procedure begins to assure a pain-free experience. However, some patients may experience mild discomfort after the treatment.
