High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (Ultherapy)
HIFU treatment is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment for skin tightening and lifting of facial contour. It delivers focused ultrasound energy as deep as 4.5mm under the surface of the skin which can then kickstart the body’s own rejuvenation process. As a result, production of healthy collagen is stimulated and increased, leading to skin tightening and overall lifting of facial contours.
HIFU is recommended for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity on the face and neck. As the body needs time to produce collagen, best results can be seen around 2 to 6 months after the treatment. Results of a single treatment session can last for around 12 to 18 months.
HIFU may help with ‘opening up the eyes’ and reduce the ‘tired look’ by lifting the brows during a full-face treatment.
This treatment is not suitable for pregnant / breastfeeding women.
