HIFUReduce the Signs of Ageing and Improve the Tone of the Skin in a Single Session
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a relatively new cosmetic treatment that helps with skin tightening. The procedure is non-invasive, painless and alternative treatment to a face lift. The treatment uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the production of collagen, which results in firmer skin and reduces signs of ageing.
HIFU is a procedure used to tighten the skin to give a younger looking appearance. It can be considered a painless replacement to a face lift.
HIFU eliminates fatty pockets underneath the chin and jawline, helping to firm, contour and tighten the jawline and minimise jowls.
The procedure is done using a Focus Dual, a device which can also be used to treat:
Ageing skin, such as wrinkles and fine lines
Uneven skin tone
Body sculpting, including jawline definition
Focus DualGive skin back it's snap
Give skin back its snap – with the Focus Dual we have ultimate flexibility to tailor results for every skin concern. Focus Dual offers a unique combination of the latest clinically proven technologies for face and body treatments. Radiofrequency Microneedling and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound come together to give maximum results to reduce the signs of ageing. With these gold standard technologies we can treat the skin at EVERY layer to lift, firm, and tighten.
Sunburned or recently tanned skin cannot be treated with HIFU, so it is important to avoid intense sun exposure before your treatment. You should avoid using all forms of makeup or moisturisers on the day of the treatment. During your consultation, your practitioner will make sure that you are healthy enough to have the treatment, and that nothing in your medical history will hinder the process.
HIFU using a Focus Dual can be carried out just about anywhere on the body.
There is no recovery time for HIFU. However, to get the most out of your HIFU treatment, you should:
- Avoid sun exposure
- Not scratch your skin
- Avoid alcohol
- Stay hydrated
- Stay away from hot showers and/or baths
What makes the Focus Dual different?
The Focus Dual emits high-intensity ultrasound waves that allow safer and more comfortable treatments for all and any skin type.
When will I see results?
You may see some initial results almost immediately after your treatment. However, the ultimate results can be seen over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen.
How long does the procedure take?
This depends on the area you are having treatment. A full face and neck treatment can take between 1 and 2 hours, whereas body treatments will vary.
What are the benefits of HIFU?
As HIFU is non-surgical and non-invasive, the benefits are:
- No botox or fillers
- No anaesthesia
- No cuts into the skin or risk of scarring
- No recovery process
