HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound), or commonly also known as Ulthera or Ultherapy, uses concentrated ultrasound energy to tighten and sculpt your face and neck through collagen production and tissue rejuvenation. Our HIFU treatments are quick, painless, non-scarring, and effectively tightens ageing skin to create a youthful look.
With HIFU, a high intensity focused ultrasound is transferred into deep skin structures to achieve significant skin tightening in the face and neck regions. Over the wound healing process for several months, a gradual lifting effect can be achieved. Unlike surgical facelifts, there is no downtime or epidermal damage, just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside.
You may see some results immediately after treatment, however the full lifting effect will be obvious after 2-3 months.
As the treatment results are dependent on a individual’s collagen production ability, the longevity of the lifting effect may vary between persons. However, we generally recommend patients to return once a year for maintenance.
During treatment, you will feel tiny amounts of ultrasound energy being deposited into your skin, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. There is no downtime, and you can resume your normal activities immediately after without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.
Most patients only need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments.
