LET SURGERY WAIT
WHAT IS HIFU HIGH INTENSITY ULTRASOUND?
HIFU stands for High Intensity Ultrasound. Ultrasound energy has a proven track record within the field of medicine for over 50 years. HIFU is an incredibly easy, safe and fast treatment, a procedure usually take between 30-60 mins.
HOW DOES HIFU WORK?
HIFU works by totally bypassing the skin & heating up the deeper tissues of the face, body & vagina. This is called the SMAS LAYER which stands for superficial muscular apeoneurotic. This is the area that is addressed by surgeons during a facelift surgery. The HIFU treatment will heat this layer to around 65 degrees which stimulates new collagen giving a dramatic lifting, tightening & firming result.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM A HIFU TREATMENT?
HIFU will lift, tighten & tone loose skin to counteract the effects of ageing. It is especially useful for lifting & shaping the jowl area, lifting the brow, reducing excess skin on the upper eyelids, tightening loose skin around the body especially the stomach after childbirth.
Is HIFU safe?
HIFU is extremely safe, there is no downtime and you can normally resume your daily activities after a session. Low levels of focused heat are delivered at just the right depth below the skin to achieve a positive lifting result. All with no downtime, no surgery & no risks associated with surgery. The face & body’s response to this energy is to stimulate the growth of new collagen. A gradual tightening & firming occurs, resulting in a natural lift of the skin over the next few months.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR HIFU?
A good candidate for HIFU is someone with mild to moderate laxity, someone who feels they have a loss of volume, looks tired & has sagging contours on the lower face and neck. Some who is not ready for surgery & would like to achieve a fresh natural rejuvenated result. This treatment is especially beneficial for
- Bingo wings
- Jowl area
- Turkey necks
- A lowered brow
HIFU can also be successfully used for vaginal rejuvenation. HIFU vagina will lift firm & tighten helping with laxity after childbirth, improving menopausal dryness and incontinence. The procedure is comfortable with no pain & no downtime.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
Generally a difference can be seen after the first session. Three sessions are recommended with a months interval. Results will carry on working after the treatments have finished & can last up to 2 years.
