High-intensity focused ultrasound

3D HIFU is the latest powerful face & body combination for skin lifting & targeted fat reduction using the most up-to-date, clinically proven HIFU technology to treat both face & body concerns.

3D-HIFU Face is the latest non-surgical facelift treatment using High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound to both lift and tighten loose or sagging skin on the neck and the face without any downtime – A great alternative to cosmetic surgery. HIFU for the face focuses energy to stimulate the deep support layers of the skin without causing damage to the skin surface. The treatment stimulates the growth of new collagen resulting in a lifted, firmer and toned appearance of the skin. Results will develop over the course of 2-3 months with some clients experiencing continued improvement for up to 6 months.

3D-HIFU Body is the latest technology used to target specific focused areas of aft in the fastest possible treatment time. This technology works by delivering focused energy at a depth of 1.3cm and 7mm to destroy fat cells. The high frequency of the ultrasound wave results in heating under the skin, effectively destroying the fat cells and tightening the skin in the area treated. The damaged cells are flushed away via a natural removal process through the lymphatic system that continues for up to 3 months. The treatment is best for pockets of stubborn fat, body sculpting, targeted fat removal.

Benefits of HIFU

HIFU can be used wherever skin starts to sag or lose suppleness.*Treatment results may vary from person to person.  For the face typical treatment areas include:

  • Full Face
  • Jowels
  • Neck
  • Crows Feet – Near Eye Area
  • Forehead Lines

On the body, it can be used for lax skin on the arms, the inner thighs, and the abdomen.

HIFU Effectiveness

Some tightening of the skin is normally observed immediately after treatment, and the effect increases over the ensuing weeks due to new collagen formation in conjunction with the continued retraction of the connective tissue matrix. An annual maintenance session is recommended.

Pros and Cons of HIFU

Most patients report that HIFU is a painless treatment.  As a non-surgical cosmetic procedure, it is comfortable, and most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after a session.  Makeup can be applied the following day.

It is possible that a patient may experience some mild swelling or look mildly flushed, but if it does occur it usually subsides within a day. Patients might also experience a slight tenderness in the treated areas for the next few days.

Naturally, the effectiveness of HIFU will be limited by the amount of retraction their skin can deliver.  This is affected by age, skin type, skin thickness, and a variety of other factors.  For significant sagging, your therapist may suggest alternative procedures.

Skincare after HIFU

Depending on your skin type, your therapist may suggest using a topical sun protection and product usage that may prolong the condition of the skin

The firming benefits achieved following the treatment should last over one year, but skin continues to age. Yearly, touch-up treatments are recommended to combat the ageing process.
