Collagen Induction Therapy
HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, an advanced cosmetic technology that significantly tightens and lifts several areas of the face.
It also reduces signs of aging and improves the tone of the skin in a single session.
HIFU Facelift is a long-lasting, non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound energy to tighten and lift the skin.
Here are some of the benefits of doing the HIFU Facelift treatment:
- Reduces wrinkles and tightens saggy skin
- Lifts the cheeks, eyebrows, and eyelids
- Defines the jawline and tightens the décolletage
- Natural looking and long-lasting results
- No downtime, safe and effective
The HIFU Facelift was developed a little over a decade ago.
It involves using ultrasound energy or laser beams to trigger the production of natural collagen in the body.
This production of collagen then makes the skin around the face tighter and more supple.
One of the reasons why it is so popular is that it leverages on the body’s natural resources.
This means that there is no need for surgery and so there is no need for healing and recovery.
In addition, it is a natural procedure, so clients only look like an enhanced version of themselves.
Hifu is a powerful non-invasive procedure that uses the latest ultrasound technology to tauten loose cheeks.
It achieves this by using 10Hz velocity ultrasound, which stimulates collagen and triggers dermal collagen fiber regeneration.
The Hyfu facelift focuses on all layers of the skin from the epidermis through to the SMAS layer.
