WHAT HAPPENDS DURING MY CONSULTATION?

During your consultation a detailed medical history will be taken, helping the therapist to determine whether the treatment is safe for you to receive and whether it will help you achieve the results that you are looking for. This will also reduce the risk of any unwanted side effects. During this consultation the potential risks and aftercare recommendations are discussed. You may also require this face to face assessment to determine how many sessions you will require to achieve desired results.

WHAT HAPPENDS DURING MY TREATMENT APPOINTMENT?

step 1

 

Preparation

The skin is cleansed with an appropriate solution. Local anaesthetic cream is not effective for this treatment. The treatment area will be marked out and planned with a pencil.

step 2

 

Treatment

The HIFU handpiece is used to deliver ultrasound waves to tighten the layers in a controlled area. The shots are delivered both vertically and horizontally with the largest possible number of shots given on the highest setting possible depending on your tolerance/comfort level.

Very few people would not be suitable for this treatment. The treatment is even safe for those with the most sensitive skin including rosacea.

  • Please only touch the skin with clean hands
  • Avoid hot steam and water for 2 days (sauna, steam room, jacuzzi)
  • Avoid vigorous sweaty sports and running/jogging for 2 weeks
  • For a few days clean your face with cold water and natural cleanser
  • Do not have chemical peels or bleaching treatments until healed, minimum 1 week
  • Avoid direct sunlight, wear an SPF30 minimum and a hat for 2 weeks prior to treatment
  • For 1 month avoid laser, IPL, RF, micro needles, microdermabrasion treatments
  • Ideally avoid fillers and toxins for a 2 month period

HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?

Results last up to 3 years.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

HIFU (High intensity intensive ultrasound) energy is focused at the SMAS layer 3 to 4.5 mm below the skin surface to produce a thermal coagulation zone smaller than 1 mm. At this zone, a high thermal reaction occurs at a temperature of 60 ° C or higher, which causes the SMAS layer contraction and collagen remodeling to skin tightening and lifting
