Skin tightening and facelift with HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound)
Is a revolutionary gentle alternative to a surgical facelift.
HIFU is used to lift, tighten and rejuvenate face and body.
Young tight skin has a high concentracion of good quality collagen and elastin in the dermis layer.
With aging the body reduces the production of collagen the skin begins to wrinkle and sag.
To revers this HIFU stimulates the collagen production by sending ultrasound energy to the different skin layers, where it causes a small injury to the tissue.
During the healing process new collagen fibers grow and the skin gets tighter naturally.
HIFU targets the four different layers of the skin: the epidermis, the dermis, subcutaneous fat and even the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) with different transducers up to 4.5 mm for the face and 13 mm for the body.
Just after one treatment the skin will continually improve as new collagen is generated. In certain cases the treatment can be repeated after two to four month and the results will last 12 to 18 month.
Most patients feel minimal discomfort during the treatment which takes, depending on the area 20 to 90 minutes.
After the treatment the skin can be tingling or some tenderness can occur for a short period of time.
Immediate effects are visible straight after the treatment but best results will take up to three month and will be continued up to seven month.
