Skin Lifting and Tightening
HIFU Lift & Tighten
What is it?
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (or HIFU) is a non-surgical ultrasound lifting system for treating lax areas of the face, neck and body without any superficial damage or downtime.
Treatment can be used to:
Lift and tighten lax areas on face and body
Reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes or forehead
Reduce size and tighten skin after weight loss or post baby tummies
Lift, tighten and rejuvenate sagging skin on arms, breasts or inner thighs
How does the treatment work?
HIFU energy is delivered into the dermis, deep dermis, subcutaneous fibrous tissue/hypodermis, fascia and superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS). As tissue temperature rises with the absorption of energy and vibration of cells, focal thermal coagulation points (TCP’s) are formed. These points stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin, and promote skin rejuvenation.
A variety of cartridges are used during treatment to specifically target HIFU focal points located at 1.5mm, 3.0mm, 4.5mm and 8-13mm below the surface of the skin, with surrounding tissues remaining unaffected.
As decreased amounts of collagen and elastin can cause fine lines, wrinkles and saggy skin. HIFU technology is able to generate wrinkle improvement, reduce fine lines and tighten sagging skin areas, by stimulating the body to create collagen and elastin.
Treatment in the collagen-rich focal point layer at 1.5mm creates superficial dermal neocollagenesis leading to a reduction in wrinkles. Simply put, it increases collagen production, at these shallow areas of the face.
Treatment in the deep dermis at the 3.0mm focal point, produces TCPs, promoting collagen regeneration and facial lifting.
Treatment in the focal point at 4.5mm enables non-surgical face lifting and tightening, as this layer is composed of collagen and elastin fibres playing a role in muscle contraction to the skin’s surface.
Is this treatment painful?
The actual treatment itself can cause an uncomfortable prickling sensation and mild heat may be felt post-treatment. The feeling of tightening may also be felt for a few days to a week, this feeling is caused by cellular activity happening below the dermis.
Before and after care
For optimal results, you should be using a routine skincare regime prior to your treatment. If you aren’t using one, please make an appointment with your nurse or dermal therapist so they can put you on a “quick response” pretreatment – every skin is different and individual treatment protocols are used to match your best possible outcome.
Post treatment care is always suggested by your dermal therapist to suit your response and to make sure you get the longest results from your treatment.
We use the latest in HIFU technology, with UTIMS being the safest, non-invasive system for face and body lifting and tightening. With high accuracy technology, stable and narrow transducers for usability, this device provides:
Stable focal points with maximised treatment outcomes
Safe and consistent heat patterns
Less adverse effects
Powerful treatments without compromising safety
High energy delivery
Delicate heat lesions
UTIMS carries the Transducer Heat Lesion Valuation System (THLVS Phantom), an energy effect measurement test to safely regulate the HIFU energy while ensuring the safe and correct energy levels are applied to skin tissue.
