What is HIFU?
If you are looking for a non-invasive innovative new treatment for a face-lift effect, then the HIFU Non-Surgical Face Lift could be the perfect treatment for you.
HIFU will help your skin look younger, tighter and more toned by using High-Intensity Frequency Ultrasound to stimulate collagen and elastin. It is a safe and non-invasive treatment with amazing results and little to no downtime. It is a unique one off treatment that delivers long lasting results.
HIFU uses focused ultrasound energy to target the layers of skin just below the surface. The ultrasound energy causes the tissue to heat up rapidly.
Once the cells in the targeted area reach a certain temperature, they experience cellular damage. While this may seem counterintuitive, the damage actually stimulates the cells to produce more collagen - a protein that provides structure to the skin.
The increase in collagen results in tighter, firmer skin with fewer wrinkles. Since the high-frequency ultrasound beams are focused on a specific tissue site below the skin’s surface, there’s no damage to the upper layers of the skin and adjacent tissue.
What does it feel like?
You may experience slight discomfort during an HIFU procedure. Some people describe it as tiny electric pulses or a light prickly sensation.
Are there any side effects?
Immediately after the treatment, you may experience mild redness or swelling, which will gradually reduce a few hours later.
When will I see the results?
Some clients see some instant tightening and toning of the skin due to the instant contraction of the SMAS layer. Results will continue to improve over time as the collagen fibres grow back thicker and stronger. 2-3 months will show good results and the improvements will carry on into month 6 post-treatment.
Each person is different and will see results at different times. Results vary from person to person. Results are completely dependent on your own body’s recovery time, age, lifestyle, diet and medical history.
HIFU facelift is a long-lasting treatment that can last 2-3 years.
After the treatment, it is best to look after your skin by protecting it from the sun, having a good diet that gives your skin nutrition, not smoking or drinking regularly to excess. Taking regular exercise is important as it will help boost oxygen and nutrient delivery to the skin, as well as ensuring your body is well hydrated.
