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.
Following a treatment using the HIFU machine, the skin may show erythema, a tight feeling, and slight prickling or tingling in places.
These effects may continue for a few hours. In some rare cases they may last for a period of days. Avoid using any make-up following a HIFU treatment for up to 12 hours. Some results will be visible immediately following a treatment (approx. 10%) and effects will continue for up to 90 days following the treatment.
If any further treatments are required, please leave a minimum of 12 weeks before further treatments.
Clients usually need one to three sessions, with a minimum of twelve weeks(90 days) between each treatment. In a two-year period, there should be no more than three treatments
