HOW DOES HIFU MACHINE WORK?
With the HIFU machines treatment what we are doing is heating small targeted amounts of soft tissue below the surface of the skin to a level where the tissue will contract and the body will create new collagen. To achieve a significant lifting and tightening effect, the right amount of heat is delivered to the right depths of tissue and this fantastic treatment is capable of accomplishing both without any injury to the surface of the skin.
What you feel during the treatment is tiny amounts of concentrated ultrasound heat, giving a warm sensation that is being deposited below the surface of the skin, which many people describe as a tingling feeling. The ultrasound heat can be intense at times and is a positive signal that the collagen and building process has been initiated.
The degree and nature of any discomfort will vary from person to person and from area to area on the face and or neck, with bony areas such as jawline being more sensitive than others. There can be some temporarily, small areas of the numbing or sensitivity to touch after the procedure. Before and after the treatment, we ensure that you are comfortable at all times.
WHAT IS HIFU Machines?
HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) otherwise known as Ultherapy is a non-invasive & non-surgical cosmetic skin tightening treatment that uses ultrasound to lift and tighten collagen and elasticity of the skin, for both men and women.
HIFU specifically targets the skin and its deep foundational layer of tissue that would usually be addressed in surgery, but without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin, bypassing the epidermis during treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT?
You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post hifu machines treatment restrictions or requirements. However, you should avoid exposing your skin to extreme temperatures of heat or cold, and protect your skin with a good quality moisturiser and SPF. It is also important that you up your water intake and stay hydrated after your treatment, also avoid caffeine and alcohol for 48 hours afterwards, even longer if possible for optimal results.
Your normal regime can be followed immediately, but avoid using skin products that may cause irritation for 24 hours afterwards.
Your skin may appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours and in 1-2 days. Some clients may experience tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature over the next few days to a week. Other, less common post-procedural effects, may be temporary bruising, or numbness on small areas of skin. If any of the symptoms persist, please contact the clinic immediately.
Where this treatment really excels is that there is also no downtime, so you can go back to work the same day.
NON-INVASIVE, NON-SURGICAL, COMPLETELY SAFE
The only FDA cleared non-surgical, non-invasive hifu machines treatments that are proven to be safe and effective in clinical studies and have had over 450,000 treatments worldwide.
The results are similar to that of a surgical face lift and is the best alternative to invasive surgery or injections.
NATURAL SKIN UPLIFTING
The hifu machines treatment stimulates the deep structural support layers of the skin, whereby a natural, regenerative response is initiated, stimulating the growth of new collagen, which goes on to lift and tighten the skin over the next 9 months.
