HIFU FACE & NECK
HIFU is the latest technology for non-surgical skin lifting and body shaping, the full name is High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. It uses ultrasound to lift and tighten collagen, thus reduction skin sagginess and improves the elasticity of the skin which results in improved texture for both men and women.
HOW IT WORKS
HIFU will heat the SMAS layer up to 60℃-70℃, this being the optimum heat to speed up the skin rejuvenation process and maximizing the tightening effect of the skin layer. Over 90-180 days, the body has been naturally stimulated to ensure long-term tissue regeneration and thus leads to further lifting and tightening, with results that can laser 1 to 3 years. This fantastic treatment is capable of accomplishing this without any injury to the surface of the skin.
During the treatment you will feel tiny amounts of concentrated ultrasound heat, giving a warm sensation that is being deposited below the surface of the skin, which many people describe as a tingling feeling. The ultrasound heat can be intense at times and is a positive signal that the collagen and building process has been initiated.
The degree and nature of any discomfort will vary from person to person and from area to area on the face and or neck, with bony areas such as jawline being more sensitive than others. There can be some temporarily, small areas of the numbing or sensitivity to touch after the procedure. Before and after the treatment, we ensure that you are comfortable at all times.
RESULTS OF HIFU FACE & NECK LIFT
Most clients will see an initial effect right after their treatment, generally a refreshed glowing look, but the real results appear over the following 2 to 3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow.
Results can be seen up to 9 months following the treatment and depend on the variety of different factors including age, health, lifestyle and diet, and how much pre-existing collagen there is to build on when having a procedure for the first time. While a HIFU treatment won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it is a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery, and may even be an option for clients who wish to extend the effects of previous cosmetic surgery they have already had.
Where this treatment excels is that there is also no downtime so that you can go back to work the same day.
NON-INVASIVE, NON-SURGICAL, COMPLETELY SAFE
The only FDA cleared non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that are proven to be safe and effective in clinical studies and have had over 450,000 treatments worldwide. The results are similar to that of a surgical facelift (but without the surgery in our case) and are the best alternative to invasive surgery or injections.
NATURAL SKIN UPLIFTING
The treatment stimulates the deep structural support layers of the skin, whereby a natural, regenerative response is initiated, encouraging the growth of new collagen, which goes on to lift and tighten the skin over the next nine months.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT
You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements. However, you should avoid exposing your skin to extreme temperatures of heat or cold and protect your skin with a good quality moisturiser and SPF. It is also important that you up your water intake and stay hydrated after your treatment, also avoid caffeine and alcohol for 48 hours afterwards, even longer if possible for optimal results.
Your regular daily routine can continue immediately, but avoid using skin products that may irritate for 24 hours afterwards.
Your skin may appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours and in 1-2 days. Some clients may experience tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary over the next few days to a week. Other, less common post-procedural effects, may be temporary bruising, or numbness on small areas of skin. If any of the symptoms persist, please contact the clinic immediately.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT POST TREATMENT?
It is normal for the area to feel tender immediately after the procedure.
We recommend no sun exposure for 24 to 48 hours after the treatment.
No strenuous exercise for 24 to 48 hours.
The treated area may be flushed, reddened and feel tingly.
Temporary bruising and numbness in the treated area can also occur (although this is rare)
Apply a gentle cream gel every 4 to 6 hours for up to 72 hours’ post-treatment.
The Skins Appearance Post Treatment
Skin feels tighter with a mild sensitivity to touch; however, this will last up to 48 hours. After three days, your skin will feel back to normal.
Results visible 6 to 8 weeks and improve further over time. Collagen induction process continues to work for another six months after the treatment.
