HIFU Skin Tightening

Ultrasound Skin Tightening

High Frequency Ultrasound for Skin Tightening

HIFU works by delivering highly focused acoustic energy to three different depths in the skin’s layers. The body’s natural wound healing response results in the formation of new collagen which leads to a long term tightening of the skin.

This non-surgical skin lifting technique has become one of our most sought after treatments. HIFU can also be used to permanently reduce fat – when acoustic energy is focussed at a depth of 1.3cm and 8mm it destroys fat cells.

The high frequency of the ultrasound wave results in heating under the skin, effectively destroying the fat cells and tightening the skin in the area treated.

The treated cells are flushed away via a natural removal process through the lymphatic system. Importantly this removal process continues for up to 3 months after treatment.

The Technology

How It Works

For skin tightening the highly focused acoustic energy creates thermal coagulation zones at three different selected depths, following which a wound healing response results in the formation of new collagen thus providing a long term tightening and strengthening of the skin.

The Focused HIFU hand piece delivers at 1.5mm, 3.00mm and 4.5mm. This hand piece is for the treatment of lines and wrinkles in the area where the cartridge delivery is recommended.

The controlled movement of the handpiece results in a grid of treated skin. There is no downtime associated with either of these procedures.

*Disclaimer: Results vary from person to person due to family history, age and different skin types.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many treatments of skin tightening HIFU are recommended?

The number of treatments depends heavily on the client, however you will start to notice results immediately after your first treatment.  Maintenance treatment is required every 12 to 18 months.

What results can I expect from this treatment?

HIFU has been able to deliver some very impressive results for patients.  Results can be seen immediately after treatment but most results start approximately 2 to 8 weeks after treatment, with most patients seeing full results 12 weeks post treatment.  Some results continue to improve over 6 months. 

Can I combine HIFU with other treatments?

HIFU skin tightening is best for targeting loose skin around the neck, arms and abdomen area, however if you wish to have more of an overall fat reduction treatment your therapist may recommend combining your HIFU body treatment as part of a treatment course incorporating other technologies for a more complete fat reduction treatment. At Body Sculpting Clinics each technology can be combined to enable you to target your needs and devise a specific and bespoke treatment plan for you ensuring maximum results.

What will I experience during treatment?

The HIFU delivery handpiece will be placed on the skin and held there for approximately two minutes, this will be repeated 3 times per treatment area.  During treatment you may feel the warmth of the handpiece, and some cases in some cases it may be slightly hot and uncomfortable.  You may also feel a slight vibration and tingling sensation.
