What is High Intense Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)?
HIFU is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to actually lift skin.
Targets deep layers in the skin, it boosts new collagen production and collagen regeneration right at the source. HIFU can produce small, microthermal lesions at precise depths in the dermis up
to the fibromuscular layer, causing thermally induced contraction of collagen
How does it work?
HIFU works by penetrating the skin with ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in the deep dermal and subdermal levels, resulting in controlled injury to that tissue. As the tissue heals, it increases collagen. As the collagen fibers organize and shorten, a tightening effect is seen in the skin. The treatment tightens the muscle layer as well as tightens the skin and boosts collagen.
How many treatments will I need?
Results vary. A course of 3-5 treatments delivered 4-6 weeks apart are recommended to achieve the best results.
Will I see results immediately?
Clients may witness some initial effect of tightening and firming, but ultimately lifting and firming will take place over approximately 3 months, as collagen is renewed and replaced with new, stronger collagen. As this collagen building process continues, improvements can continue to appear for up to 6 months.
Are the results permanent?
Regardless of the service you choose, to continue to maintain good skin-quality. It is required to engage in a continuing skin regimen. Results may last up to 24 months. Singe maintenance treatment may be required at 12-month intervals to preserve the initial effect.
HIFU is suitable for anyone at any age. It is safe for all skin types as well. If sagging skin is severe, several rounds of treatments may be required.
