HIFU SKIN TIGHTENING
HIFU is the most advanced technology available in the world today for non-surgical skin tightening. The treatment utilizes focused ultrasound to lift underlying muscle and tone loose or sagging skin. By stimulating the deep structural support layers of the skin, a natural, regenerative response is initiated, stimulating the growth of new collagen, which lifts and tightens the skin over time.
What does the treatment involve?
During treatment we use a hand held device that hovers over the skin to deliver very targeted pulses of Ultrasound deep into the layers of the skin. Treatment time varies depending on the area being treatment but generally ranges from 1-2 hours from beginning to end. During treatment it is normal to experience a slight pricking or aching feeling. This will subside immediately once the treatment is finished.
How many treatments will I need?
We recommend two treatments spaced 6 months apart. Then repeat one treatment every 2-3 years to maintain results.
How long will the results last?
HIFU results will continue to improve gradually for up to 6 months following treatment and results will last on average 18 months to three years. Individual results will differ slightly.
What does the treatment cost?
Half face or neck $700
Full face $900
Full face and neck $1300
Glow facial $500
Who can have this treatment?
A good candidate for HIFU is someone who has mild to moderate skin laxity.
This treatment is not recommended for people who have dermal fillers within the treatment area, open lesions or wounds, cystic acne, a history of keloid scarring, implanted electrical devices (pacemakers etc) or metal implants in the treated area, pregnancy or breastfeeding, bells palsy, heart disease, hypertension, liver, kidney or skin disease or for those who have been on Roaccutane in the last 6 months. We do not recommend HIFU Face treatment for those that have little to no facial volume.
Pre and Post care information
There may be some discomfort while the ultrasound energy is being delivered however comfort thresholds vary from client to client. This is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. If you choose to, you may use light pain medication to increase comfort during the treatment.
After treatment you may experience slight redness on the treatment area for up to an hour after the treatment however HIFU is a non-invasive procedure and there is no downtime. You are able to return to normal activities immediately. A small percentage of client’s experience mild tenderness, swelling or muscle soreness in the treatment area for hours to days post treatment.
