HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. If you’re battling sagging cheeks, crow’s feet, wrinkles, prominent lines from nose to mouth, under-eye bags, a heavy brow or drooping jowls, then this treatment is an ideal fit.
The HIFU facelift is currently topping the bill as the most discreet and effective face-lift ever. It’s so quick that you can get one during a lunch break. Also known as ‘Ultrasound Facelift’, ‘Ultherapy’ or ‘3D SkinMed’, HIFU facials have become one of the most popular and desirable lifting treatments for the face and neck. Post-treatment, you’ll see a marked improvement in overall facial contouring, fine lines, and wrinkles.
As we age our skin loses its elasticity and shape, much like our favourite clothes. This change begins in the foundational layers which support our skin—which is how skin sagging and wrinkles occur. When collagen is heated by ultrasound multiple things happen.
Ultrasound technology involves the use of sound wave frequencies. During pregnancy scans, low-frequency sound waves (between 3 - 7.5 MHz) are emitted by an ultrasound device over the mother’s bump. The device transmits the consequent reflections of these soundwaves and uses them to form an image. During a HIFU facial, the HIFU treatment machine uses high-energy ultrasound waves (between 18-20 kHz—a range that is above human hearing)for body contouring instead.
As the ultrasound waves are focused across the treatment areas, you will feel tiny amounts of energy transmitted through to precise depths beneath the skin. This feeling is perfectly normal, and it indicates that the collagen-building process is beginning. The comfort levels during the session will vary from individual to individual, but the sensation only lasts a short while.
