What is Hifu?

FACE & NECK

HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a non-invasive lifting treatment for the face and neck that uses ultrasound energy to encourage the natural production of collagen and elastin resulting in firmer skin.

 

The regeneration process takes place progressively and gradually as it acts from deeper tissue towards the skin surface. The result is a natural uplift and rejuvenated skin (4.5mm – 3.0mm and 1.5mm depth treatments). 

HIFU FOR YOUR BODY

HIFU can reduce pockets of fat by penetrating through the surface of the fat layer of the skin. It stimulates the rapid decomposition of unwanted fat cells while increasing the body’s natural production of elastin and collagen.

Such process effectively helps remove unwanted fat, while significantly boosting the youthfulness and firmness of the skin. (8.0mm – 10.0mm – 13.0mm and 16.00mm depth treatments). 

HIFU BENEFITS

– Lifts and tightens eyebrows

– Reduces frown lines and wrinkles 

– Nasolabial fold reduction

– Lifts and firms the chin/jaw area

– Body sculpture and contour

– Overall skin tightening, contouring & rejuvenation

– No damage to the surface of the skin

HIFU IS A NON-INVASIVE TREATMENT WITH NO DOWN TIME

HIFU treatments don’t involve any creams, fillers or toxins, it means there’s no invasive procedure such as cutting or disturbing the surface of the skin. It is your body’s own collagen-building process that is activated; hence the natural looking results.

You can return to most of your daily life activities right after your treatment session.

WHEN CAN I SEE THE RESULTS?

HIFU GLOW

(1.5mm depth)

 

At this depth, the production of collagen is excellent for: 

– Skin plumping, toning and smoothing
– Skin refining (reduces fine lines),
– Scarring (including acne scarring and stretch marks)

Best visible results are usually noticed after 2 to 4 weeks. HIFU Glow Facial can be repeated every 4 to 8 weeks for optimal results. Outcome may vary according to age and skin type.

HIFU FACE & NECK

(1.5mm – 3mm and 4.5mm depth)

 

At this depth, the stimuli create a new matrix of collagen that gently lifts the skin and promotes significant tightening. 

Some patients may see the initial result instantly. However, the ultimate lifting and firming process will take place over approximately 2-3 months with continual on-going improvement up to 6 months. 

One treatment every 6 to 12 months is usually enough, yet, depending on age and degree of skin laxity extra sessions might be required. Some clients may also benefit from additional treatments.

HIFU FOR BODY

(From 8 to 16mm depth)

 

Effective for body contouring and great for targeting stubborn pockets of fat.

Fat reduction percentage varies from person to person. The number of recommended treatments per area is usually 2-3. However, some people may see great results after just one single treatment. 

POST TREATMENT

– Keep skin well hydrated and drink lots of water, at least 2 litres per day.

– Refrain from exercise for the first 24h.

– Avoid saunas, Hot Yoga, smoking and alcoholic beverages during the first week following treatment.

– Avoid over exposure to the sun for the first month, and use sunblock daily to maximise your results.  

– Avoid high-tech treatment items such as anti-aging, pigment removal or microneedling for 8 weeks. 

SIDE EFFECTS

People rarely experience discomforts. There might be a temporary numbness or bruising, but these side effects usually go away after a few days. Some slight redness or swelling may occur, but it should subside quickly. You can use a soothing serum if you wish!
