HIFU

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound



HIFU or high frequency focused Ultrasound system is a non-invasive ultrasonic focusing technique.

The ultrasonic energy is delivered deep within the skin and causes a thermal reaction, high heat will directly focus on the connective tissue.

Non-invasive Ultrasound energy specifically targets the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) and as a result, collagen production is stimulated and the process of tissue regeneration begins. This causes tightening and lifting of the skin and tissues resulting in a lifted appearance and a tightened feeling.

This fantastic treatment offers a non-invasive and affordable alternative to more invasive treatments such as facelifts with no downtime. HIFU specifically targets the same muscular layer as targeted during a facelift.

The health and vitality of the skin’s surface improves and tightens in just one session.

  • Brow Lifting

Some results will be visible immediately following a treatment (approx. 10%) and effects will continue for up to 90 days following the treatment.
