Non-surgical Skin Lifting using HIFU
Non-surgical Skin Lifting has become one of the most sought after treatments, and HIFU is the latest to excel in this arena in just one single session! HIFU which stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, which is used for targeted fat removal. HIFU is world’s most advanced non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment.
It targets individual brow lifting, jowl line lifting, nasolabial fold reduction, , and overall skin tightening and rejuvenation.
What can be treated using HIFU?
- Brow lifting
- Jowl lifting
- Mid face lifting
- Nasolabial fold reduction
- Neck lifting and tightening
- Overall skin tightening and rejuvenation
- Periorbital wrinkle reduction
The highly focussed acoustic energy creates thermal coagulation zones at three different selected depths. Following this, a wound healing response results in the formation of SMAS tightening and new collagen, thus providing a longer term tightening of the skin. Generally, a noticeable improvement in facial contouring and fine lines and wrinkles will be reportedly seen up to six weeks post treatment. There is no downtime associated with this non-invasive procedure.
How does it work?
HIFU Body is the latest technology delivering a 24 line matrix of focussed energy at a depth of 1.3cm+7mm. The controlled thermal effect results in the destruction of targeted fat as well as contraction of collagen in the treatment area.
The HIFU hand piece delivers focussed ultrasound waves to a precise depth to cause necrosis of the fat cell. The high frequency of the ultrasound wave results in rapid heating of the focal zone at 1.3cm and 7mm under the skin, leaving the skins surface unaffected. However this energy increases in temperature as it gets deeper within the skin due to the energy of the HIFU causing cellular friction. Exposing the fat cell to this high temperature causes rapid cell death (necrosis).
There is no downtime or recovery time needed. Most people return to normal activities right away after treatment.
