HIFU- FACE Lift
HIFU stands for high intensity focused ultrasound. It is an innovative, painless and non-invasive way to reduce wrinkles and provide skin lifting that lasts up to two years and is skin-friendly. Additional applications include face and brow lifting, tightening of the connective tissue and cellulite treatment. Highly concentrated ultrasound waves penetrate deep into the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production.

HIFU vs Threadlift
HIFU ultilizes high energy ultrasound that lifts and tones the face, neck and eyes resulting in a dramatic yet natural uplift, without needing any surgery. Results is often longstanding.
A thread lift or threading face lift is a simple procedure that involves lifting the skin using sutures that were traditionally only used for surgery. It helps to restore our facial contours by lifting sagging tissues and repositioning facial volumes to achieve a more youthful look.

How does Ultracel Q+ works?
Grid Fractional Radio-Frequency (GFR)
The grid fractional radio frequency delivers thermal energy promoting collagen growth and elastin production resulting in a healthy and tighter looking skin.
Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling (FRM)
The radio frequency microneedling device delivers heat, which affects collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. This causes deep structures of the skin to tighten, and over time, new and remodelled collagen is produced.
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
Ultrasound waves are beamed to a targeted depth of the skin where thermal heat energy treatment stimulates the growth of new healthy collagen for prolonged and more intensive tightening.
Area of treatment
Before and after
HIFU treatment is painless, as the ultrasonic waves do not affect the surface layers of the skin.
The treatment will directly transfer the ultrasound energy into multiple layers of the treated area to trigger collagen renewal to give a tighter skin. Macro-focused cartridges transfer an equal distribution of ultrasound energy into to the tissue under the skin in the treated area, which will induce contractions as well as natural disposal of stubborn fat cells for contouring purposes.
One session of HIFU treatment will deliver visible effects in lifting and tightening. It will also create new collagen which will help the skin to maintain its youthful glow with the results lasting up to 12-16 months
This treatment usually takes between 20-40 minutes and has no downtime and no side effects, nevertheless some patients could have slight redness and rarely slight swelling for the initial 2 hours after the treatment.
The treatment will cause no disturbance to the patient’s daily routine and patients can apply make up or facial moisturiser immediately after the treatment if they wish to do so
After as little as one session with HIFU therapy, the patient can enjoy a refreshed, lifted, and more youthful appearance immediately after the treatment.
The results will improve with time, as the skin’s Sculptra continues for a few months after the treatment.
In some cases, we combine other treatments with HIFU, depending on the individual cases, condition of the skin and other patients concerns to deliver the best possible desired results.
