HiFu treatment is used to tighten the skin and neck area using high intensity focused ultrasound. The treatment is extremely effective in stimulating collagen and removing lines and wrinkles using ultrasound energy in your targeted area, providing instant results.
HiFu ( High intensity focused ultrasound) was first invented in the USA by a Myron Medical Cosmetic Research Institution. Since its invention, many technology companies jumped on the concept to introduce it to the market.
Allwhite Laser are one of only a few companies to design a successful HiFu system, making their Clarity™ Hifu machines superior to others. They are able to do this due to their immense infrastructure, and the fact that they build complex systems such as the Regeneration Laser for hospitals and surgeons. As such, building Clarity™ HIFU systems is second nature to their development team.
The technology is not yet classed as medical in many countries, but achieving a true medical result sets them apart from all the other Hifu machines on the market.
How does HIFU work?
HIFU skin-tightening procedure is usually performed using a smooth hand piece that delivers highly focused ultrasound energy that safely heats up the subcutaneous layer at designated depth. Most clients will need only one session. Results will appear over 2 to 3 months or even up to 6 months following treatment. Your body will continue to produce fresh collagen over the course of the next year. You can have repeat top-up treatments should you require them.
HIFU is a non-invasive ultrasound energy which only targets the area being treated. This energy generates low levels of heat and directly delivers this heat energy to the skin and subcutaneous tissue which then stimulates and renews the skin’s collagen, therefore improving the texture and reducing sagging and drooping of the skin. It literally achieves the results of a face lift without any invasive type of surgery or injections.
As we get older our bodies lose collagen, a natural protein which keeps our skin taut and firm ,resulting loss of laxity. The loss of collagen and laxity naturally pulls the skin in a downward position due to gravity . The AW3 HIFU treatment increases the collagen production again providing you with an instant face lift and instant rejuvenation as the energy delivers precisely to the epidermis, the dermis and the superficial adipose layer, superficial muscular aponeurotic system and deep fascia.
Am I a good Candidate for this treatment?
This instant face lifting treatment can be applied to the face as well as other parts of the body, and it works equally well for people of all skin colours, in contrast to lasers and intense pulse lights.
What areas are treatable with HIFU?
Loose neck folds
Fine lines and wrinkles
Uneven skin tone or texture
Large pores can all be treated
How long will the result last?
You may see some initial results, but the main lifting and tightening will take place over 2-3 months as new collagen is produced. This collagen regeneration process continues up to 6 months after your treatment. Treatment can be repeated after 12- 18 months.
Is HIFU painful?
Discomfort levels differ from person to person. Different people tolerate the treatment a lot more or less than others. Any pain and discomfort experienced with the treatment are only temporary and are only experienced during the treatment.
Are men good candidates for HIFU?
Men are very good candidates for the treatment since there is no recovery time needed, allowing them to immediately return to their daily activities. This makes 3D HIFU the ideal lunch-time treatment for both men and women.
How many sessions of HIFU will I need?
The majority of people only need one treatment. Touch-up treatments could be performed in 1 year intervals, depending on the degree of lifting and tightening required.
What happens after treatment?
There is no downtime with HIFU treatment, allowing you to return to your daily activities immediately after treatment.
You may experience some redness and/or swelling at first, and you may experience some tingling. These will disappear within hours. These effects mean that the beneficial process of collagen regeneration has begun. HIFU skin tightening is clinically proven to be safe, with natural looking, gradual rejuvenation effects.
You will see some of the results immediately, with continuing improvements in the 6 months following your treatment.
