HIFU Therapy Skin Lifting and Tightening
HIFU therapy at Weston Beauty Clinic is one of the most powerful non surgical skin lifting and tightening treatments available.
As we age collagen production slows down. Our face, neck and décolletage start to lose tone and elasticity and we often notice our skin becoming looser or start to sag. This can cause particular concern around the jawline or jowls, the neck and brow area; ageing us beyond our years.
How does HIFU work ?
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is able to reach tissues that other anti-ageing treatments can’t affect. It applies energy at three depths, to powerfully trigger the bodies own healing process, By targeting heat at specific depths we can kick start the body’s healing response, this naturally increases the levels of collagen in the tissues.
As collagen increases, this leads to lifting and tightening of the skin. Helping to reduce the signs of ageing, for a younger, more refreshed appearance.
IS IT SAFE?
HIFU is the only FDA cleared non-surgical, non-invasive treatments that is proven to be safe and effective in clinical studies and have had over 450,000 treatments worldwide.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
Most clients will see an initial effect straight after their treatment, *patients generally notice a 20% improvement and refreshed glowing appearance immediately but the real results appear over the following 2 to 3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow. Optimal results can be seen up to 6 months following the treatment.
How Long will HIFU Therapy 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 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment on its own takes approximately 30 minutes.
What Does HIFU Therapy Feel Like?
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.
Will I Need More Than One Treatment?
The majority of patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment (depending on how much laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and collagen- building process). As we age a maintenance session is recommended every year.
Can HIFU Replace a Face Lift?
HIFU is an “uplift” not a “face lift.” While it is not a replacement for surgery, it is a viable option for those not ready for a face lift or those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Are there any side effects?
There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of clients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. The feeling of a muscle workout soreness is common but relieves itself quickly.
