HIFU the technology used for skin lifting represents the latest and most advanced in this area with only one single session! HIFU is an abbreviation for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. This treatment targets fat cells for removal. HIFU is admittedly the world’s most advanced non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment.
The treatment helps with brow lifting, nasolabial fold reduction, jowl line lifting, overall skin tightening and rejuvenation.
What can be treated using HIFU?
Mid face lifting
Nasolabial fold reduction
Neck lifting and tightening
Overall skin tightening and rejuvenation
Periorbital wrinkle reduction
HIFU produces thermal coagulation zones at three different selected depths. This triggers a wound-healing response in the skin that results in the formation of new collagen and SMAS tightening, thus providing tighter skin. The results will be visible within 6 weeks. Expect a noticeable improvement in fine lines, wrinkles and facial contouring. The treatment does not have any downtime.
How does it work?
HIFU Body is the latest technology delivering a 24 line matrix of focused energy at a depth of 1.3cm+7mm. The controlled thermal effect leads to the destruction of the targeted fat cells. The same process also results in the contraction of collagen in the area treated, thus delivering additional benefits to the skin.
The HIFU handpiece delivers focused ultrasound waves to precise depths in order to cause necrosis of the fat cells. Following that, the high frequency of the ultrasound wave leads to rapid heating of the focal zone at 1.3cm and 7mm under the skin. This process only affects fat cells and leaves the skin’s surface unaffected. As it moves deeper within the skin due to the energy of the HIFU causing cellular friction, the temperature will increase. Exposing the fat cell to this high temperature will cause rapid cell death (necrosis).
