face-liftingHIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is the next generation in advanced non-surgical facial rejuvenation, providing deep penetration, real lasting results and no damage to the skin surface! The closest technology available to a true surgical face-lift without surgery.

HIFU is a non-surgical method to lift and tighten the skin of the face and neck using high-intensity focused ultrasound therapy. The ultrasound targets different depths of the skin, working to tighten the different skin layers to produce optimal results. Specifically, the HIFU targets the Super-facial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) layer. SMAS refers to the deep tissue layer below the dermis. The HIFU technology encourages the cells to produce new collagen, allowing the skin to increase firmness and elasticity. Collagen building takes time, therefore optimal results are seen anywhere from 2 months to 6 months post-treatment.

HIFU treatments, delivers precise and fractional focused ultrasound energy at specific target depths in the facial skin.

At 1.5 mm– The HIFU action is focused in the epidermis and superficial dermis, (similar to skin needling) but without damage or disruption to the surface of the skin.

At 3.0mm– The HIFU targets the connective tissue of the deeper dermis (collagen zone)

At 4.5mm– The HIFU targets the SMAS layer (superficial muscular aponeurotic system). This deeper collagen structure maintains the facial expression muscles and supports the skin. It’s the tightening and regeneration of this layer that results in skin lifting.

Who is HIFU Recommended for?

HIFU is intended for individuals with skin laxity, or anyone who is looking to achieve skin tightening. HIFU can renew mild to moderate sagging skin, as well as create lifting of the brow to aid in improving openness of heavy eyelids. Keep in mind, however, that HIFU is not an alternative to a traditional facelift, and therefore patients with a greater degree of skin laxity may be better suited towards a surgical face and/or neck lift.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: What does HIFU feel like?
    A: The treatment is felt minimally. Most patients describe the sensation during treatment as a slight vibration, tingling, or warmth.
  • Q: Are there any side effects?
    A: The skin may feel slightly sensitive following your HIFU treatment, and may have a sensation similar to tingling or pulsating.
  • Q: How long does the treatment take?
    A: The treatment takes roughly 90 minutes if treating full face and neck.
  • Q: Is there any downtime?
    A: The great part about the HIFU treatment is that there is zero downtime! You may resume all normal activities following treatment.
  • Q: What areas can be treated?
    A: The face and neck can be treated using HIFU.
  • Q: How long does the treatment last?
    A: The length of results truly depends on each patient as collagen degradation and the aging process affects everyone differently and at different rates. Most people will only need one or two treatments up-front, followed possibly by annual touch-up treatments to keep up with the aging process.
  • Q: Who is not a candidate?
    A: The HIFU treatment is contraindicated in clients with active or open lesions in the treatment area, clients with pacemakers or defibrillators, or those with metallic implants in the treatment area. Furthermore, the treatment has not been evaluated in women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

 

 

PlasmaLift

Plasma therapy is the aesthetic industry’s most advanced non surgical, skin lifting and tightening treatment. It is used with great results for wrinkle smoothing, eyelid tightening, eyelid hood reduction, smoker’s lines, marionette lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, ear lobe tightening and more, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

This innovative technology utilises plasma – formed through ionisation of atmospheric gasses – to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of skin fibres. This technology does not use scalpel or laser to remove excess skin, thereby avoiding all risks inherent to the traditional intervention.

The treatment is performed through minute spots made with a pen type device at a certain distance one from the other to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of skin fibres.

Results can be seen immediately but continue to improve over a 6-8 week period and can last up to around 3 years with many results permanent. This is done all without the use for needles, scalpels, anaesthetic or costly surgery.

The treatment consists of many plasma dots spaced closely together and most areas of the face and body can be treated. The procedure normally takes 30 – 60 minutes to perform. Results are seen instantly although the best appearance is seen after 6-8 weeks. The treatment is performed without causing bleeding and more importantly without causing any damage to the surrounding tissue.
