Our latest Biotech Italia machine offers the most up to date treatment for high intensity focused Ultrasound. It’s moving motion handpiece allows a safer and pain free session, no discomfort or painful shots. Constantly water cooled to soothe skin allowing more strokes in any area. Known as HIFU ( high intensity focused ultrasound) it works on the mattress layer of collagen & connective tissue. Plumping up from the inside out.
NON-INVASIVE – NO NEEDLES – NATURAL ENHANCEMENT – 60-70% SIMILAR RESULTS TO A FACELIFT – ONE SESSION lasts approx 18 months to 2 years – NO DOWNTIME AFTER – FAST TREATMENT
AREAS TARGETED : Brow lifting – Jowl line lifting – Nasolabial folds – double chin lifting & reduction of fatty tissue – eye area periorbital wrinkles softened – complete skin tightening of facial & neck skin
The highly focused acoustic energy creates thermal coagulation zones at three different selected depths. Following this, a wound healing response results in the formation of new collagen & the SMAS tightening, thus providing a longer term tightening of the skin. Generally, a noticeable improvement in the patients fine lines, wrinkles & facial contouring will be seen up to three months post treatment. There is no downtime associated with this non-invasive procedure.
How does it work on the body? The Ultrasound energy is delivered to a deeper depth, at the fat layer to achieve body contouring. It can treat various parts of the body including the abdomen, buttocks, knees, upper arms and legs. During the procedure fat cells are damaged and then dispersed through the vascular and lymphatic drainage systems and disposed naturally by the body. Each treatment is followed by Radio frequency to drain and tighten further the upper skin layers.
How long does a treatment take? Face & neck procedure takes 60-75mins with consultation, while a chest treatment takes around 30 minutes.
Will I need to take time off? With CFU central focoused Ultrasound 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 to the collagen but also to allow comfort levels and surface skin protection.
Other uses for Ultrasound have been used for decades in medical diagnostics (e.g fetal scans, abdominal scans) and medical therapeutics (e.g shockwave for destroying kidney stones). Biotec Italia’s research scientists have developed ultrasound technology combined with radiofrequency to deliver the 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 CFU? 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 foundational 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 topical options of botox & fillers.
How does stimulate the creation of collagen? By depositing intense heat deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment triggers a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. Tightening the existing fibres, 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 colour tone. The ultimate final results take place over 2-3 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 connective tissue. But your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results 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, Hylauronic acid, Retinol & SPF’s skin protection factors will all enhance a continuous production & repair of collagen. If you invest in stimulation & repair of the skin. You will keep aging at bay.
How many treatments will I need? Most people have one HIFU taken on average once a year though with good skin care maintenance & regular Radio-frequency facials monthly if chosen to have 18 months to 2 yrs can be achieved.
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 elasped & 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 post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas. Generally if diabetic or on blood thinning medication these could be a contradindication to treatment for this reason. As the ability to heal & regenerate is hindered by external factors. 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.
