high intensity focused ultrasound
Contemplating a face lift is a serious thing. You’ve clearly reached a stage where you feel that this is your only option to feel like yourself again and being able to enjoy life to the full. However, there is a non-surgical option that may well be the solution you’ve been looking for if surgery is feeling a bit drastic. If you are looking for the benefits of a face lift but are worried about the risks of scarring and prolonged recovery times, then our 3D High-intensity focused ultrasound (3D-HIFU) may be for you.
Non-surgical Skin Lifting has become one of the most sought-after treatments in recent years. Highly focused ultrasound energy is directed deep beneath the skin at appropriate temperatures without injuring the surface. This causes the skin to increase collagen production, therefore resulting in long term skin tightening and lifting.
Around 20% of the effects can be seen immediately after treatment but the full results will be visible after three months. This is one of the most popular treatments in the industry as results can last from 1-2 years meaning you can enjoy the benefits in much the same way you might a mini facelift but without the surgical recovery times or cost.
HIFU is the only treatment that can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin similar to that of cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. By accelerating the body’s own healing process, it helps sagging skin to tighten itself and become firmer.
We can use HIFU to target and lift sagging jowls, naso-labial folds and reduce wrinkles, resulting in overall skin tightening and rejuvenation.
HIFU is safe, effective and able to treat tissue otherwise only reachable by surgery. It is suitable for both men and women.
what to expect
Soft lubricating gel is applied to the skin. An ultrasound probe is then moved in focused specialised way to direct the ultrasound waves to the areas that need tightening and lifting.
The procedure is gentle and comfortable and is almost undetectable afterwards: it doesn’t not leave any marks on the surface of the skin.
what to expect
We are dedicated to providing a treatment that is much gentler than a surgical facelift in every aspect. Soft lubricating gel is applied to the skin and an ultrasound probe is then moved in a focused, specialised way to direct the ultrasound waves to the areas that need tightening and lifting.
The procedure is gentle and comfortable and is almost undetectable afterwards: it does not leave any marks on the surface of the skin so you can reap the benefits of the procedure immediately.
Typically only 1 treatment is required for a great result. An additional treatment can be carried out at 8-12 months if needed.
The procedure is very comfortable although some areas such as the forehead can be a little more sensitive. No skin numbing cream is needed. The sensation can sometime feel like tiny pin pricks but is not painful.
The time it takes depends on the area being treated. In general it takes 30-60 minutes.
