HIFU Non Surgical Face & Neck LiftWhat is HIFU?
The HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) beams through the surface of the skin to deliver precise and fractional ultrasound energy at the right depths (i.e., 3.0mm/4.5mm) to the SMAS layer without damage or disrupting the epidermal tissue of the skin.
This energy stimulates both muscle firming and new collagen production, with no disruption to the outer skin surface (no scarring).
What can be treated
Lift eyebrows and tighten eyes
Reduce frown lines
Lift and firm jowl area
Soften smile lines
Reduce nasolabial folds
Improve appearance of neck
HIFU Treatment (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound), is a breakthrough, non-invasive, non-surgical downtime, in-office procedure for lifting and tightening sagging skin of the brows, cheeks, lower face (jowls), jawline and neck. Ultrasound technology is focused below the skin surface to firm and lift droopy tissues.
It works deep below the surface to stimulate the growth of collagen “without harming the outer layer of skin”. This results in long-lasting firming, tightening and lifting of the skin, giving you a more youthful appearance after just one treatment.
While HIFU is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery. There are also younger people who are looking to prolong the effects of plastic surgery.
How does it work?
A smooth hand piece is used to deliver tiny deposits of focused ultrasound energy at just the right depth below the skin. Your skin’s response to this energy is to recondition tired skin by stimulating the growth of fresh, new collagen. The result is a tightening and gradual lift of the skin back into a more youthful position and form-fitting shape.
Over the next 4-6 weeks after the treatment skin will be firmer and uplifted.
How long does the ultrasound treatment take?
A full face treatment takes 45-60 minutes, and a partial face or brow lift treatment can take around 30 minutes—neither with any downtime.
Is there any downtime?
HIFU is an entirely non-invasive procedure and as such, there is no downtime. You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take.
Is HIFU painful?
Comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, but there can be some discomfort while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. This is a temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
Your practitioner will consult with you prior to your skin treatment to make your experience as pleasant as possible. Patients typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come!
Are there any side effects?
There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of clients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
