3D-HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound)
Non-Surgical skin lifting has become one of the most sought after treatments and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is the latest to excel in this area in just one single session.
It targets specific areas on the face and neck, individually; Brow Lifting, Jowl Line Lifting and Periorbital Wrinkle Reduction for overall skin tightening and rejuvenation.The highly focused acoustic energy creates thermal coagulation zones at 3 different selected depths causing a wound healing response which results in the formation of new collagen.
The tissue at these target points is heated to 65 degrees centigrade which create spaced ‘wounds’ or cones of heat and cellular friction. The wound healing response caused by the trauma results in the formation of new collagen and SMAS tightening. The SMAS layer (Superficial muscular aponeurotic system) is the layer which the muscles of the face and the soft tissue attach.
During cosmetic surgery a portion of this SMAS is removed and then reattached to give a longer lasting result than the traditional skin tightening facelift. The SMAS is one the sections of the skin treated with HIFU to give a longer lasting tightening effect as a result of the non-surgical treatment. Improvements can be seen from eight weeks post treatment and will continue up to six months post treatment.
