The ice cooled hand piece allows for a pain free comfortable treatment and super fast treatment time, firing of 500 shots in just minutes, a full face can be completed in 25 minutes. This revolutionary new technology allows sweeping motions as well as upward lifting motions to create maximum lift.
The HIFU Ultrasound Face and Neck Lift has become one of the most sought after non-surgical facelifting treatments. Unlike laser treatments, which penetrate the skin from the outside-in, the HIFU procedure bypasses the surface of the skin, delivering targeted energy into the deep, structural tissues and muscles where collagen lives.
HIFU involves penetrating ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in the deeper dermal and sub-dermal levels, which results in micro injury to that tissue. As the tissue heals, it increases collagen and as the collagen fibres organise and shorten, a tightening effect is seen in the tissue.
Because ultrasound technology actually works from the inside-out, results* build gradually over 3-4 months, and can continue to improve up to 6 months after the procedure and best of all, there's no downtime.
HIFU stands for high intensity focused ultrasound, an innovative, painless and non-invasive way to reduce wrinkles that lasts up to two years and is skin-friendly. Additional applications include face and brow lifting, tightening of the connective tissue and cellulite treatment. Highly concentrated ultrasound waves penetrate deep into the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production.
After treatment, you can immediately resume your normal activities because the skin’s upper layers are not damaged by the high intensity ultrasound. In some cases, slight redness or swelling may occur, which will quickly subside. There may also be a slight sensitivity to touch and light tingling sensation, which can persist for up to 2 weeks. In very rare cases, bruising, welting, temporary local numbness can occour. These side effects disappear after a few days.
Unlike normal HIFU technology, the revolutionary cooled handpiece allows for a comfortable and quick treatment. Treatment times range from 10 - 35 mins.
Generally, excellent results can be achieved after just one HIFU COOL treatment. An additional treatment is recommended in cases where there is significant ageing or there is asymmetry to the face which can be carried out at around 12 weeks after the first.
Body Treatments typcially require 2-4 treatments to achive desired results.
Individual results will vary from person to person.
Anyone aged 30 plus, who has noticed that the skin on their face or neck has become more lax and wishes to lift, tighten and improve the relevant area.
For clients in their 30's it is typically used to stimulate collagen production and hence help delay the ageing process.
Clients aged 40-60 are also suitable for the HIFU treatment, as functions of the body and consequently those of the skin start to decline (production of collagen and hyaluronic acid that contribute to the behavior of cells).
It is also suitable for those aged 60+, provided the degree of laxity is not too great and for those who have had surgery in the past to prolong the effects of surgical facelifts and want to extend the result.
