HIFU (High-intensity focused ultrasound)
What is HIFU & will it benefit me?
HIFU is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. The treatment uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift the skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
A good HIFU candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin and lines and wrinkles on the chest.
How many treatments will I need?
Most clients only need one treatment. However this may be based on the degree of the skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individuals collagen building process, Some clients may benefit from additional treatments, because the skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help clients keep pace with the body’s natural ageing process.
Are there any side effects?
The skin may appear flushed at first, this can be during treatment but sometimes lasting longer, the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some client’s experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are temporary in nature. Other less common effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin.
How long does it take to see results and how long do they last?
After your HIFU treatment you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2/3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Your results can last for up to 2 years.
