surgical face lift?
This revolutionary skin tightening and lifting technology, HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) is able to lift and tighten the loose skin of the face, neck and décolletage, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
It is an ideal alternative for individuals who want to avoid the added risks or complications that may be associated with injections and surgical procedures.
The HIFU (High frequency focused ultrasound) technology delivers precisely focused beams of ultrasound energy to three different depths of the skin’s layers. HIFU also helps to tighten the facial muscle layer by targeting the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) which is directly above the facial muscle. This is the muscle targeted by surgeons in a face lift procedure. This non-invasive ultrasound energy is delivered to these particular levels in the skin to stimulate a multi layered skin tightening effect which occurs over a period of months.
The ideal candidate for HIFU will have mild to moderate skin laxity. We are able to achieve the following results using HIFU:
- Brow and eye area lifting and skin tightening
- Reduction of loose skin around the eye area
- Reduction of fine lines around the eye area and forehead
- Redefining the jawline and facial profile
- Double chin slimming and tightening
- Neck skin lifting and tightening
- Tightening décolletage skin
- General improvement of skin texture from collagen stimulation
HIFU is a non-invasive with no down-time post treatment. Treatment time will vary depending on the area being targeted – an eye area and brow lift will take 20 minutes while a full face and neck treatment will take approximately 70 minutes. Some clients may feel slight discomfort during treatment whilst others will feel no discomfort at all. A very mild skin tightening effect can be felt almost immediately after therapy, with no thermal damage to the exterior of the skin. Some people may experience mild skin redness straight after treatment which generally subsides quickly afterward. All possible outcomes both during and post treatment will be discussed with your therapist during your complimentary consultation.
Results may be seen immediately, although collagen production increases during the 12 weeks post treatment. The result will be a tighter, more contoured look that can last over 12 months. Most clients will need only one treatment, repeated annually to maintain their results. HIFU can complement fillers and enhance results by stimulating collagen and elastin fibres, however we recommend a 2 week interval between HIFU and injectable treatments.
