HIFU is the most sought after lifting treatment for the face and neck. The treatment lifts, tightens, tones and reduces loose skin to counteract the effects of both time and gravity.
The high intensity focused ultrasound penetrates the foundation layer of your skin, bypassing the surface of the skin and delivering a targeted energy specifically into the deep, structural tissues and muscles where collagen lives. As the collagen fibres rejuvenate and shorten there is a tightening effect and gently and gradually the skin and tissue memory is restored.
This treatment really comes into its own for lifting and tightening the cheek area and sharpening the jowls and jawline; lifting the brow; reducing wrinkles around the forehead, eyes and lips; reducing excess skin on upper eyelids; improving the chin outline and reducing marionette lines; removing the ageing wrinkles from the neck; improving the skin quality and tightening loose skin.
There is no special preparation or recuperation and usually takes one treatment to gain a noticeable result. Some clients enjoy an initial effect immediately following the treatment, but the ultimate lifting will take place in just 2 to 8 weeks, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and replenished.
The treatment is a one off and lasts anywhere between 6 months to 1 or 2 years depending on your age, diet and lifestyle.
