TREATMENT AREAS

- HIFU -
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound


HIFU face & body sculpting is a non-invasive treatment, for skin toning, lifting and tightening. HIFU can also be used for removing stubborn body fat.

HIFU offers an effective and non-scarring alternative to a surgical face lift, with no 'down time'. It is truly a remarkable breakthrough in technology which works in a similar manner to Ultherapy, but at a more affordable price - a very exciting new treatment option.

HIFU is excellent at tackling skin laxity; it lifts and tightens skin by stimulating the body's own natural collagen. It is particularly good at tightening the skin in the under chin and on the neck area.

HIFU can also contour the face and body through the breakdown of fat (lypolysis). Treatable areas include, the abdomen, hips, arms and legs.

HIFU is the only FDA approved treatment with a specific intent for improvement of lines and wrinkles on the face and décolleté.

What is HIFU and how does HIFU work?


HIFU uses the power of Ultrasound to lift and tighten the skin.

Ultrasound is a form of energy that is significantly different from light modality treatments such as, IPL and Lasers, or Electrical (Radio-Frequency) energy. HIFU bypasses the skin's surface, penetrating at deeper depths and at higher temperatures than Radio Frequency for example, treating beyond the Dermis and Foundation layers to precisely treat the optimal target area where the skin's collagen resides. The skin's natural healing ability is stimulated, promoting new collagen formation and tissue rejuvenation.
A lifting and tightening of the skin occurs, bringing about a noticeable fine line and wrinkle reduction.

HIFU ultherapy

Fat cells can also be broken down by the ultrasound energy. If this is the treatment intention, then the liquid fat that is released is processed via the liver, as it would if it was fat from digestion and removed via the immune system.

This treatment can provide improved definition of facial and body contours.
