Are you looking for a treatment that both reduces fat and tightens skin? Would like a treatment that's non-invasive, surgery-free, & completely safe? Try HIFU, our revolutionary device for lifting, tightening, & contouring...
HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, a must-have technology that safely targets the tissues in the deeper layers of the skin, with the ability to treat both skin and fat. When targeting the skin, the treatment stimulates collagen production and tissue regeneration.
HIFU has also been proven effective in body sculpting when used to reduce subcutaneous fat and improve body contour.
How it works
The Ultra 4D uses high intensity focused ultrasound for face lifting, skin tightening and fat reduction. When used to treat the face, HIFU is delivered deep into the skin and causes thermal coagulation to SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System). Skin tightening and rejuvenation happens gradually over time.
When treating localised fat, HIFU delivers macro energy into subcutaneous fat to selectively remove fat cells; this achieves localised destruction of fat at precise tissue depths without damaging the skin or surrounding tissues.
HIFU has become one of the most sought-after treatments, offering superior results whilst remaining non-invasive. The treatment can be carried out on various target areas, including the face, neck, stomach, thighs, arms, back, knees and chest; HIFU is popular with both men and women.
HIFU is based on hyperthermia lifting theory. The HIFU transducer irradiates 65 - 75°C of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy, this creates thermal coagulation on the target layers of skin tissue with no damage to the skin surface. Following the initial treatment, the skin starts to undergo a wound healing process that stimulates collagen synthesis and regeneration. The formation of new collagen provides longer-term tightening on the skin.
In simpler terms, unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, HIFU bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jump starting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.
HIFU, when used for fat reduction and body sculpting, deliver outstanding results. The HIFU energy is used to penetrate through the skin layers and into the targeted fat tissue without causing any harm to the skin. The energy is delivered at the subcutaneous depth; this energy effectively and non-invasively destroys targeted subcutaneous fat and achieve superior results.
An immediate effect can be noticed following treatment, with clients’ facial contours and fine wrinkles showing competent improvement after four weeks of treatment. As the procedure continues to work for up to six months and as the collagen fibres reorganise and restructure themselves. Clients may notice further improvements such as skin firming and tightening during this time. Results from one treatment will last between one and two years, depending on clients’ current skin laxity and age.
What can HIFU be used for?
- Blur red jawlines
- Nasal folds
- Sagging eyelids
- Bra roll
- Loose neck folds
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- Completely safe
- No damage to the body
- No recovery time required
- Long lasting results
- Tightens loose/sagging skin
What is the treatment time?
Each session lasts between 60 and 90 minutes. Most clients have four treatments scheduled one week apart.
What does it feel like?
As this treatment is performed lying down, it's easy for you to relax. Clients report feeling a comforting warm sensation in the area being treated, which can last for a few hours after the treatment.
Is there any downtime?
This non-invasive treatment requires little preparation and no recovery time. In fact, some clients have the treatment during their lunch hour before heading back to work.
How quickly will you see results?
Many clients see results two to three weeks after the first treatment, with optimal results reported after a couple of months.
Many see results immediately with this treatment, with improvement's continuing over the following months.
