High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound

NON-INVASIVE ...NO DOWNTIME...NON SURGICAL FACE LIFT

We have the latest advancement in Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) technology, with up to date techniques. Treatments are fast and results continue to work for up to 6 months! This is why the HIFU treatment is known as the ‘lunchtime facelift’.

What Is High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound HIFU?

HIFU uses focused ultrasound energy to target the layers of skin just below the surface which causes the tissue to heat up rapidly. Once the cells in the targeted area reach a certain temperature, they experience cellular damage which actually stimulates the cells to produce more collagen — a protein that provides structure to the skin. The increase in collagen results in tighter, firmer skin with fewer wrinkles.

Why you should opt for HIFU?

  • Non surgical
  • No downtime
  • Once a time procedure
  • Gets the body to build its own collagen...
  • Melts excess body fat...
  • Natural results...
  • Body contouring & sculpting

How long will a HIFU Treatment take?

  • The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan.
  • A face and neck procedure typically takes 90 minutes, while a chest treatment on its own takes approximately 30 minutes.

Will I Need to Take Time off Work?

  • With a single HIFU therapy treatment, there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.

What Does HIFU Feel Like?

  • As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths.
  • Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.

How Many HIFU Treatments Will I Need?

  • Most clients only need one treatment. However some clients may benefit from additional treatments.
  • Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help clients keep pace with the body’s natural ageing process.

Who is a Good Candidate for HIFU?

  • A good HIFU candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Of course, the best way to find out if you’re a suitable candidate is to consult with the doctors at Luxury Aesthetics.

Is HIFU Safe?

  • The HIFU procedure has been used safely in over 250,000 treatments worldwide. Ultrasound energy itself has been used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years.

Are There Any Side Effects?

  • The skin might appear flushed at first, this can be during treatment but sometimes lasting longer, the redness should, however, disappear within a few hours.
  • Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are temporary in nature.
  • Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin.

How Long Does it Take to See Results and How long do They Last?

  • After your HIFU Treatment, you may see some initial effects, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen.
