HIFU Skin Tightening & Body Sculpting

WHAT IS HIFU?

HIFU is a HIGH INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND that penetrates the skin to depths that previously were only reachable via cosmetic surgery!

WHAT DOES IT DO?

The HIFU penetrates with low levels of heat to the inner layers of skin and initiates a gradual skin tightening and lifting effect that continues to tighten for months after treatment.

FACE SCULPTING

The development of HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) of FINESSE enables targeting the facial SMAS, the fan-shaped structure that covers the face and connects the facial muscles with the dermis. In facial procedures, the HIFU relies only on heat to achieve its effects on tissue.

The goal is to elevate the local temperature to at least 65°C, the temperature at which collagen contraction begins to occur. HIFU causes discrete thermal coagulation points while sparing adjacent tissues. In addition to local coagulation, the application of heat causes collagen fibers become denatured and contract.

This new collagen formation occurs within the areas of thermal tissue coagulation results in the tightening and lifting of sagging facial and neck skin and improvements in the appearance of wrinkles.

BODY SCULPTING

HIFU provides a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction to remove unwanted fat in non-obese patients, using 2 cartridges of 1MHz to target different depths from 6mm to 9mm, allowing optimal body contouring. The new body sculpting technique is safe, causing minimal pain or side effects.

The high-energy ultrasound utilizes 1Mh transducers to deliver macro energy into subcutaneous fat to selectively remove fat cells. This innovative transducers achieves localized destruction of fat at precise tissue depths, without damaging the skin or surrounding tissues.

HIFU Skin Tightening and Body Sculpting FAQs

No preparation is needed. Ultrasound gel will be applied to cleansed skin. The handpiece will then be used to deliver ultrasound energy beneath the skin. Some patients may feel the energy at this point. The physician will work with you to make the experience as comfortable as possible.

Each treatments takes 60 to 90 minutes, but may be performed within 30 minutes. Some patients report feeling a slight prickling or heat under the skin. Cooling is not required. Anesthetics will be provided to ensure patient comfort as tolerance levels vary, but treatment isn’t unbearably painful.

You can get right back to your day — there is no downtime required. Collagen production will kick off after only one session, with results appearing over the following months. Your skin will be healthier, stronger, and younger-looking, without any unnatural, drastic changes.

You might see slight redness and/or swelling post-treatment, and might feel some tingling. These will disappear within hours. While the results will not be as dramatic as with surgical facelifts, HIFU skin tightening is clinically proven to be safe, with natural and gradual rejuvenation effects

Most patients need only one session. Results will appear over 2 to 3 months or even up to 6 months following treatment. Your body will continue to produce fresh collagen over one year. After that, you may wish to continue touch-up treatments.

This treatment is suitable for all skin types over the age of 30 and can help with preventing the results of aging.
