No, it’s not the latest sound system. HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. Ultrasound has been used in the medical industry for decades, and has more recently been developed to specifically stimulate our body’s natural healing and regenerative response, specifically skin tightening and lifting in this case.
Skin concerns that are symptoms of ageing, environmental and lifestyle factors such as sun damage, wrinkles, loose skin, enlarged pores and poor texture can be addressed with HIFU treatment. We answer the most commonly asked questions regarding 3D HIFU non-surgical facelift.
Non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment such as 3D HIFU offers a skin tightening and lifting solution with little to no downtime, can be performed in your lunch break and are considerably more affordable than surgical options.
Offering natural results, this treatment uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound technology to stimulate the body’s healing response and collagen production. Natural results are achieved as there are no scalpels, no stitches and no synthetic substances involved in the treatment. 3D HIFU precisely targets 1.5mm, 3mm or 4.5mm depths in the skin, depending on the concern being treated.
Full face, neck, cheeks, jawline, jowls, nasolabial fold, brow and forehead are the most common treatment areas. 3D HIFU can also be used to tighten skin on the body.
Treatments usually take between 15 and 90 minutes, depending on the area(s) and skin concern(s) being treated.
There is no downtime, you can return to your normal daily routine after treatment. Temporary numbness and redness may be experienced immediately following tightening and lifting treatments.
You will see a noticeable change in the treated area immediately after treatment. This will improve in the coming 3-6 months as your body produces collagen and elastin in the treated area.
