What is HIFU?
Are you tired of tired looking skin? Have you tried every so called ‘miracle cream’ on the shelf but still have droopy jowls and unsightly lines and wrinkles. Stop looking old before your time by reversing the aging process. You can now turn back the clock on your skins appearance without the need for surgical intervention. With major advancements in high intensity focused ultrasound technology, defying gravity is now possible with the next generation of non-surgical face lifting technology.
The HIFU Face Lift uses high intensity focused ultrasound to stimulate the skins deep support structures (dermis, epidermis, superficial dermis, deep dermis and even the SMAS. This single session treatment utilises the body’s own wound healing process to lift, tone and tighten the skin. By causing micro injury at three different skin layer depths (4.5mm, 3.0mm and 1.5mm), we encourage the growth and formation of new collagen. This is achieved using highly focused acoustic energy to create thermal coagulation at each depth.
Even the very deepest support layers of the skin operated on by cosmetic surgeons when performing a surgical face lift are stimulated. In the weeks that follow treatment, the treated area appears lifted, firmer and toned while fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced as the skin tightens. The popular promblem areas for treatment include brow llfting, jowl line lifting, nasolabial fold reduction and periorbital wrinkle reduction.

Celebrity A-listers and cosmetic surgeons alike are hailing its effectiveness. This really is the secret to flawless and youthful looking skin that celebrities would rather keep secret”.

Typically, those in their thirties to mid fifties who have mild to moderate skin laxity are good candidates and would normally qualify for treatment.

Diamond HIFU can target any area where there are mild to moderate skin laxity issues. Specifically, by
reconditioning and renewing the skin from within, Diamond HIFU can provide a lifting and overall rejuvenating effect as collagen renews. It can help to reduce excess skin on the lids, under the eyes, chin. It can diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead. It’s very effective on loose skin on the neck and upper chest area and can also bring definition to the face and jaw line for a more contoured appearance.
Clients may witness some noteable results immediately following the treatment but the ultimate lifting and firming takes place over 2-3 months, as the collagen is renewed and replaced with new stronger collagen. As this collagen building process develops beneath the skin. continued improvements can be seen up to 6 months following the initial treatment.
The firming benefits achieved following the treatment should last for over 1 year, but unfortunately for all of us, our skin continues to age. Yearly touch-up treatments are recommended to combat the ageing process and we also recommend a course of Radio Frequency Skin Tightening following treatment for enhanced and accelerated results.
Yes you can expect to feel tiny amounts of concentrated ultrasound energy being delivered below the skins surface. Some clients have reported that they have experienced mild discomfort during treatment but at a very tolerable level. This discomfort is felt as the energy is applied but it is short lived as this is a good indication that the collagen restructuring process has begun.
You may experience slight redness in the area/s treated for aproximately one hour following the procedure, and a small number of clients may experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch. However, all side effects are very mild and temporary in nature.
