How does HIFU work?
HIFU deposits focused ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin, contracting all skin layers in just one treatment!
This stimulates the creation of new collagen in the area. HIFU is highly effective in firming, tightening and lifting the facial skin and reducing excess skin on the body.
Is there any downtime with a HIFU treatment?
Due to the non-invasive nature of HIFU treatments, there is virtually no downtime. You may experience slight redness following the treatment, and a small percentage of our clients
do experience minor swelling, tingling or tenderness. These symptoms are mild and temporary. You’ll be able to return to your normal activities straight away, and there are no special recovery measures needed. This is why HIFU has earned the name “lunchtime face lift”.
How long until I see results from HIFU?
Some clients do see immediate initial effects; however, the ultimate lifting, firming and tightening results will take place over the following 2 to 3 months. During this time, older collagen structures are replaced by new, strong collagen. As the collagen-building process continues, you may see further improvements up to 6 months after the final procedure.
