Lift Your Face With the Hifu Machine
HIFU is the latest safe and clinically proven non-surgical technology actively endorsed by renowned surgeons. This sleek dual combination platform is a powerful and effective way to lift and tighten loose skin on the face & body.
It works as a non-invasive facelift that tightens sagging skin, irons out wrinkles and fine lines and improves pores and brightness. It also reduces fat deposits.
What is HIFU?
HIFU is a safe and effective non-invasive treatment that targets diseased tissue with bursts of focused ultrasound energy. It can precisely target diseased tissue, while leaving untargeted healthy tissue intact. HIFU is used for skin lifting, chin and neck tightening, improving fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet, and body contouring, but it can also be used to treat essential tremor and Parkinson’s disease (when a tremor is the primary symptom).
A HIFU treatment doesn’t require any incisions or surgeries and can be performed in an outpatient setting. Compared to surgical facelifts and liposuction, HIFU is a much less painful and faster treatment.
HIFU’s thermal energy heats the deeper layers of skin and triggers neocollagenesis, Hifu Machine which leads to stronger and firmer skin. It’s also used for body shaping, because it can target and destroy fat cells, which are then naturally removed by the body’s lymphatic system.
How does HIFU work?
HIFU uses ultrasound energy to counteract the effects of gravity and skin ageing, lifting and tightening your face. It is a non-invasive treatment that can target deep tissue and muscle structures such as the SMAS layer.
During the treatment, the transducer is placed against the skin to precisely deliver focused energy into the target areas of your face and body. The ultrasonic energy heats up the targeted tissues, causing thermal coagulation without damaging the surrounding tissues. This process stimulates the formation of new collagen and skin tightening, which gives your face a natural face lift.
HIFU can also help shift and remove fat cells, improving your body shape by slimming the thighs, stomach, buttocks, and upper arms. This is done by precisely targeting diseased tissue, which is then naturally flushed out of your body via a natural removal process. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may need multiple HIFU sessions or even a full body treatment. However, HIFU is considered to be an effective and safe procedure with no major risks or complications.
How long does HIFU take?
HIFU is a minimally-invasive procedure and does not require any downtime. You may notice some redness or swelling in the treated area, but this should fade within a few hours. Your healthcare provider will give you specific instructions about what to expect before your treatment.
During the procedure, your healthcare provider will apply a topical gel to the skin before adjusting the HIFU device and selecting the appropriate treatment hand-piece. Then, the device delivers ultrasound energy in a series of short pulses. Some people describe this sensation as tiny electric pulses or a light prickly feeling. You may also feel slight discomfort, although it is less intense than the pain associated with a surgical facelift.
HIFU deposits targeted ultrasound energy under the surface of the skin to contract and tighten the facial layer. It also stimulates the body’s creation of new collagen, which results in skin that looks and feels better. HIFU is ideal for people with mild to moderate skin laxity and who wish Hifu Machine to avoid the risks of surgery. However, it isn’t a magic bullet for aging, and you will probably need to have it repeated in one or two years as the natural aging process takes over.
What are the side effects of HIFU?
The HIFU procedure is typically painless. Some people feel the sensation of tiny electric pulses or a light prickly feeling during treatment, but this does not last long and is not painful for most clients. Anesthetic cream or oral medications can be provided by an aesthetic professional to quell any discomfort that may arise during the treatment.
During HIFU treatment, doctors use a handheld device that emits ultrasound waves to heat and destroy cancerous prostate cells. They usually target the most advanced tumor in your prostate, known as the index lesion.
HIFU can also be used to treat enlarged breasts and loose skin. The ultrasound waves from HIFU can tighten the muscles in your skin, which results in a more youthful appearance. This is especially helpful for older women who have sagging skin around the neck, eyes, and jawline.
Before you have HIFU, your doctor will talk to you about how it works and what side effects you might have. They might give you antibiotics to prevent a possible infection and a medicine called a laxative that helps you empty your bladder.
How much does HIFU cost?
The cost of HIFU depends on the area being treated and number of treatments required. Prices start from PS1400 per treatment. We will be happy to discuss this with you in your consultation.
The treatment is a non-invasive procedure that does not involve any cutting or disrupting of the skin surface. You may experience slight discomfort during the procedure, although most clients find it quite comfortable. The feeling is similar to tiny electric pulses or a light prickly sensation. The discomfort is lessened if you take a painkiller such as acetaminophen (Tylenol).
Unlike many other “skin sculpting” machines, HIFU focuses its energy up to 16 mm below the skin’s surface. This allows us to treat deeper tissues, reducing excess fat.
Please note that HIFU is not a substitute for a surgical facelift. If you are interested in a facelift, we recommend booking an appointment with an experienced plastic surgeon. HIFU is also not covered by health insurance.
