HIFU SKIN TIGHTENING
WHAT IS HIFU SKIN TIGHTENING?
Our high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) treatment is a non-invasive therapy to minimise wrinkles and tighten sagging skin.
Highly concentrated ultrasound energy is targeted to a calculated depth where the deep tissue is heated to a therapeutic temperature stimulating and accelerating the body’s natural ability to produce collagen.
Other therapies such as laser treatments are generally focused on the superficial layers of the skin to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and require several treatments. HIFU therapy is directed to the deep structural layers of the skin where collagen is deposited achieving longer lasting results with one treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The ultrasonic hand-piece delivers the energy in concentrated dots directly into the connective tissue which can feel like little rubber band flicks. A 20% result can be seen immediately - the full effect will show within 3 months and last up to 18 months.
Ultrasonic energy is focused into the deep tissue without disruption or damage to the skin’s surface. There can be some slight sensitivity and tingling present after the treatment, however this is rare and generally lasts only a few hours. In most cases you will be able to go about your normal activities without noticeable signs of treatment.
