HIFU is a non-invasive treatment targeting various depths of the body tissue tightening, lifting and contouring the area of concern. HIFU targets the deeper layers of the skin, boosting new collagen production and regeneration at the right source.
This is a progressive treatment that improves the skin as time goes on. Results will take place over 2-3 months.
It tightens the same superficial muscle layer (SMAS) that is tightened during a surgical face-lift.
This is a quick, tolerable treatment with no downtime.
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) directly delivers heat energy to skin and subcutaneous tissue that can stimulate and renew the skin’s collagen and thus consequently improving the texture and reducing sagging of the skin. It literally achieves the results of a facelift or a body lifts without any invasive surgery or injections, moreover, an added bonus of this procedure is that there is no downtime. And also, it works equally well for people of all skin colours, in contrast to that of lasers and the intense pulse lights.
It heats directly to deeper tissue, in order to lift the skin. Performed as an in office procedure, with only ultrasound gel applied to the skin. An ultrasound screen image allows the physician to visualize the level of treatment before energy is applied to the targeted tissue. The treatment takes from 45 for the face and 90 minutes for face and neck.
HIFU is safe and effective non-invasive ultrasound (US) treatment that can lift and tighten facial skin and muscle without downtime.
*Cartridges used in treatment range 1.5mm, 3.0mm, 4.5mm, 8mm, 13mm precisely acting on different depths of the skin. The energy will skip and bypass the epidermis, leaving no damages or without compromising the skin. Effective for collagen remodelling , elastane fibre contraction.
What is High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)?
HIFU is truly a remarkable breakthrough in technology, offering a truly non-invasive alternative to a surgical face/ Body lift, a MUST have treatment option, and an approved treatment with a specific intent for improvement of lines and wrinkles on the face and décolleté, aswell as targeting stubborn fat in the subcutaneous layer, penetrating to depths only previously possible with surgery.
HIFU uses the power of Ultrasound to safely lift and tighten skin. Ultrasound is a form of energy that is significantly different than light such as IPL and Lasers or Electrical (Radio-Frequency) energy. Hifu, protects the skin surface, whilst precisely penetrating at deeper depths and higher temperatures than Radio Frequency for example, treating beyond the Dermis and Foundation layers, where structural weakening starts.
Tissue at the target point is heated to ~65°C, Thermal Heat is created with the skin tissue creating both spaced ‘wounds’ and cellular friction – which in turn promotes healing, immediately contracts collagen and stimulates a rapid production. Over the next 90-180 days, the wound-healing response stimulates long-term tissue and leads to further lifting and tightening, with results that can last years.
It also helps to improve the tone and all the features of your face & body, making it a viable alternative to Botox & surgery with the benefit of being able to maintain facial expression. Excellent for post surgical face lift to maintain the lift and treat blood stasis, scarring, and numbness.
How long is the treatment?
Each session is dependent on the treatment area, but we advise around 45-60 minutes per area. Your treatment will be tailored to your individual requirements which will be discussed in your pre-treatment consultation. Additional time will be required if you require more areas.
CAN HIFU FACELIFT REPLACE A SURGICAL FACELIFT
HIFU Therapy at Cosmetic Wellness Sydney treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery but won’t duplicate the results of a surgical face lift. However, it is a great alternative, especially for those not ready to go under the knife or for anyone looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
When Are Results Visible?
Some results will be seen immediately post treatment, with optimum results expected from three to six months.
How Long Do Results Last?
Individual results will differ, however on average a minimum of 18 months to two years.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
The number of sessions depends on the client’s age, lifestyle and skin condition. One treatment is usually sufficient on light to moderate skin laxity.
Who Is Suitable for Ultra Face?
Anyone with drooping skin, or considering a face lift but isn’t ready for surgery is a good candidate.
All Skin types and tones can be treated.
Why HiFu treatment is better than other treatment?
Every single HIFU energy point (TCP) under the skin can make the temperature reach 65-70C,is the strongest temperature of all non-invasive skin tightening device.
Energy through epidermis with no trace.
Never worry about epidermis injuries!
