High Intensity Focused Ultrasound
HIFU is one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedures in the world. This revolutionary treatment is the only FDA approved treatment specifically targeting loose skin. It is clinically proven to get results only previously attainable through surgery or invasive procedures.
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 ultrasound can penetrate deeper into the skin, targeting skin breakdown at its foundation layer, where structural weakening starts.
Our technician works closely with each client to understand exactly what results they are looking to achieve from the treatment. This allows us to tailor-make a treatment course specifically for each individual, helping to obtain the best results.
Clinically proven to be safe and effective.
Cost effective alternative to a surgical face lift.
Comfortable and painless.
Instant long lasting results.
Ultrasound is an energy that can be focused and directed, this is used to penetrate deeply into the tissue causing thermal coagulation.
The ultrasound energy is directed to a small focal point in the skin, where it vibrates tissue and creates friction between molecules, this creates heat energy leading to elevated temperatures of around 65°C in the subcutaneous tissue, causing thermal coagulation and initiating the tissue repair process.
A rapid healing process is stimulated from the tissue damage, immediately causing chains of new viscoelastic collagen to form. This promotes the lifting and tightening of the targeted skin area.
Clinical evidence suggests that the dermal collagen and elastic fibres are drastically increased in number, causing a thickening of the dermis. The rejuvenation and production of collagen continues for up to three months after the treatment, and the skin lifting effects will continue for well over a year.
