Ultraformer HIFU

Looking for a lift for sagging skin on your neck, cheeks and brow without knife and needle? HIFU may be just the solution!

HIFU is an advanced energy device. It is a non-surgical, non-invasive lifting procedure for the face and neck that uses highly focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production within your skin deep down to the SMAS layer, providing a lift from the inside out in about an hour – and without any downtime.

How does HIFU stimulates collagen without knife and needles?

The focused ultrasound penetrate deep into the skin bypassing the skin surface. As a result of the deep tissue heating it stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin to gradually lift and tighten skin without any downtime.
How is HIFU different from other cosmetic procedures?

HIFU is one of the few non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses focused ultrasound to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin. Thanks to ultrasound’s unique ability to bypass the top layer of the skin, HIFU can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin – typically addressed in cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

How long until I see results?

Patients may enjoy some initial effect but the ultimate lifting and toning will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, more elastic collagen. As this collagen building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a procedure.

How long does it last?

Patients treated with HIFU still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.

Does it hurt?

Comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, so some people may experience discomfort while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. This sensation is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Patients typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come! Your practitioner will consult with you prior to your treatment to make your experience as pleasant as possible.

Are there any side effects?

There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
