What is High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)?
Hifu is truly a remarkable breakthrough in technology, offering a truly non-invasive alternative to surgical lifting, a MUST have treatment option with the specific intent for improvement of lines and crape skin on the Neck (Includes Jawline), Decolletage (Upper Chest), Upper Arms (Bingo Wings), Upper and Lower Abdomen, Inner Thighs and Knees. 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.
Hifu can also be used on the face to help to improve the tone and all the features of your face such as your eyes, cheeks, mouth, chin and skin also making it a viable alternative to Botox, 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.
