BEAUTY AND TRIM
MAIDSTONE - HIFU / CRYOLIPOLYSIS / FAT FREEZING / INCH LOSS
High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) delivers focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin’s SMAS layer at the right temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment triggers a natural process known as Neocollagenesis thus generating fresh new collagen
FIND OUT ABOUT THIS TREATMENT
HIFU stands for ‘High Intensity Focused Ultrasound’
During this treatment, ultrasound energy is used to stimulate the deep layers which support the skin. In doing so it creates a lifted, more taut appearance and stimulates the body to produce collagen
HIGH INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND (HIFU)
HIFU directly delivers heat energy to the skin and subcutaneous tissue that stimulates and renews the skin’s collagen. It improves the skin smoothness and reduces dropping and sagging too. HIFU truly achieves the results of a facelift without any injections or surgery with absolutely no downtime. This technique can be applied to the face and neck and it works equally well for people of all skin colours.
The treatment uses 2/3 different size headpieces. The 1.5&3mm headpieces are used for transmitting high frequency of 8 MHZ focused ultrasound energy into the dermis layers of the skin tissue, the ultrasound penetrates the skin to a depth of 1.5mm/3.0mm and is responsible for activating the skin’s dermal layer of collagen, effectively promoting the reduction and the appearance of wrinkles.
SUBCUTANEOUS / SMAS LAYERS
The third a 4.5mm headpiece which is used to transmit high-energy focused ultrasound to the skin and subcutaneous tissue, the ultrasound penetrates the skin to a depth of 4.5mm which is known as the SMAS (Superficial muscular aponeurotic system) layer, forming “heat coagulation” and is applied to thicker areas of the skin, such as cheeks, etc.
DURATION / DURABILITY
Each treatment takes approximately 60 minutes but may be performed within 45 minutes if you do not need all 3 treatment heads to be used. Patients report feeling a slight prickling or heat under the skin.
The HIFU skin-tightening procedure performed using a smooth hand piece that delivers highly focused ultrasound energy that safely heats up the subcutaneous layer at designated depth. Most clients will need only one session. Results will appear over 2 to 3 months or even up to 6 months following treatment. Your body will continue to produce fresh collagen over the course of the next year. You can have repeat top up treatments should you require them.
