The HIFU creates heat at three different depths within the skin. A wound healing response results in the formation of new collagen & elastin tightening the deepest layer called the SMAS tightening. Producing a noticeable improvement in the your fine lines, wrinkles , jaw & facial contouring building slowly up to 6 months after treatment. There is no downtime associated with this non-invasive procedure.
How does it work on the body? Ultrasound energy is delivered to a much deeper depth, at the fat layer to achieve body contouring. Treating various parts of the body including abdomen, buttocks, knees, upper arms & legs. During treatment fat cells are damaged then dispersed through the blood and lymphatic systems, disposed naturally by the body. Each treatment is followed by Radio frequency to drain and tighten further the upper skin layers. Excellent for post pregnancy tummy slackness or post weight loss. Inner/ outer thigh areas, love handles as we call them.
How long does a treatment take? Face & neck procedure 60-75mins with consultation, while a decollate treatment takes around 30 minutes.
Will I need to take time off? With high intensity focused ultrasound – HIFU there is no downtime. After treatment, you can resume your normal activities, without having to follow any special post-treatment measures bar good SPF use, avoiding saunas & heat treatments for a few days.
What does the treatment feel like? You will feel heat energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. A warm tingling sensation should be experienced. Intensity levels are adjusted to achieve the correct effect for maximum stimulation of the collagen but also to allow comfort levels & surface skin protection.
Ultrasound has been used for decades in medical diagnostics (e.g fetal scans, abdominal scans) and medical procedures. (shockwave for destroying kidney stones). Our machine’s research team from Biotec Italia have developed ultrasound technology combined with radiofrequency to deliver this energy deep into the skin tightening, improving wrinkles, delaying the signs of visible aging & aiding body sculpturing of slack areas or stubborn small pockets of fatty tissue.
What is HIFU? It uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently & gradually lift skin, smoothing lines & wrinkles.
Can it replace a face lift? It treats the deep foundation layer of the skin normally addressed in cosmetic surgery, but it cannot replace the results of a facelift if the skin is very lax or aged. It represents a perfect alternative. Particularly if not ready for surgery, cost affective or fearful of needles for more invasive options of botox & fillers.
How does HIFU stimulate the creation of collagen? By depositing intense heat deep beneath the skin at the correct temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment triggers a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. Tightening the existing fibers, initially giving a refreshed effect immediately.
When will I see results? How long do they last? After treatment, you normally see initial tightening, brightening & softening of existing wrinkles as well as color tone. The ultimate final results take place over 3 – 6 months, as your body starts to regenerate & repair with new fresh collagen & elastin. The treatment produces this new collagen in all the layers of skin including the SMAS layer of connective tissue. But your natural aging process will dictate how visible results will appear on the outside. A healthy lifestyle not too much sunbathing, good fluid consumption, reduced stress levels, adequate sleep, regular use of skincare products that contain Vitamin C, Hyaluronic acid, Retinol & SPF’s skin protection will all enhance a continuous production & repair of the collagen. If you invest in stimulation & repair of the skin. You will keep aging at bay.
How many treatments will I need? Normally one session of HIFU with good skin care maintenance & an optional choice of monthly Radio-frequency facials to further enhance can be had. Results achieved last for 18 months to 2 yrs. No repeated fillers or botox if not desired. Easy, simple & affective.
If the skin has deteriorated with poor skin laxity, deep lines & wrinkles either from age or sun damage & lifestyle, these clients would benefit from a 2nd session after the 3 month period has elapsed & results checked. We cannot stop the skin aging but we can delay and improve on what we have. PREVENTION IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN CURE start early rather than when the damage has been done.
Are there any side effects? Skin normally appears flushed after your session but any redness disappears by the next day. Some can experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are temporary sensations. Other less common effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas. Generally if diabetic or on blood thinning medication these could be a contraindication to treatment for this reason. As the ability to heal & regenerate is hindered by the conditions. Not necessarily from the treatment causing this to occur. Any other possible side effects will be reviewed with you during your consultation to see if you are suitable for treatment. Numbness is normally due to any irritation to nerve endings on certain areas of the face that lie close to the surface. Treatment is adapted to avoid these key areas.
