High Intensity Focused Ultrasound - HiFu

Hifu also known as Ultherapy or Ulthera uses the power of Ultrasound to safely lift and tighten skin. Ultrasound is a form of energy that is significantly different than light such as IPL and Lasers or Electrical (Radio-Frequency) energy. Hifu, protects the skin surface, whilst precisely penetrating at deeper depths and higher temperatures than Radio Frequency for example, treating beyond the Dermis and Foundation layers, where structural weakening starts.

Tissue at the target point is heated. Thermal Heat is created with the skin tissue creating both spaced ‘wounds’ and cellular friction - which in turn promotes healing, immediately contracts collagen and stimulates a rapid production. Over the next 90-180 days, the wound-healing response stimulates long-term tissue and leads to further lifting and tightening, with results that can last years.

It also helps to improve the tone and all the features of your face such as your eyes, cheeks, mouth, chin and skin also making it a viable alternative to anti-wrinkle injections, with the benefit of being able to maintain facial expression. Excellent for post surgical face lift to maintain the lift and treat blood stasis, scarring, and numbness

Does this Treatment Last 

Yes, once a skin growth has been treated with the Skin Classic, it does not return. Occassionally, the growth may need a second treatment. If your skin is prone to these types of irregularities, new ones may appear elsewhere on your face and body.
Ageing skin is a normal consequence of life. Lines, wrinkles and many forms of skin irregularities once considered to be irreversible, can now be treated, quickly, easily and inexpensively.
