HIFU Treatment: Benefits, Results & Cost – All you need to know in one read!
In the quest for a skin tightening treatment, you can revitalise your face, neck and body with the HIFU Treatment, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, – a revolutionary procedure that helps you to lift and smooth sagging skin without surgery. What is even better is that you can even be used for slimming and body toning by eliminating hard-to-shift fat with minimal fuss and risk!
Loss of Collagen and Elastin: Collagen and elastin are two integral proteins that promote structure, firmness, and elasticity to our skin. As we age, the production of these proteins declines, leading to a loss of skin firmness and elasticity. Collagen fibres become weaker and less abundant, and elastin fibres lose their ability to bounce back, resulting in sagging and laxity.
Decreased Skin Thickness: With age, the skin naturally becomes thinner and more fragile. This thinning occurs due to a reduction in the production of collagen, as well as a decrease in the number of fat cells and natural oils in the skin. Thinner skin is more susceptible to sagging and wrinkling.
Weakening of Facial Muscles: Facial muscles play a crucial role in supporting the skin and maintaining its tightness. Over time, these muscles can weaken, lose tone, and become less efficient at supporting the skin’s structure. The weakening of facial muscles contributes to the sagging and drooping appearance of the skin.
Gravity: Gravity is a constant force that acts on the body throughout life. As we age, the effects of gravity become more apparent, pulling the skin downward. Over time, this gravitational force causes the skin to stretch and sag, particularly in areas that are prone to sagging, such as the cheeks, jowls, and neck.
Environmental Factors and Lifestyle Choices: Excessive sun exposure, smoking and poor nutrition, can affect the ageing process and contribute to skin sagging. UV radiation from the sun damages collagen and elastin fibers, while smoking reduces blood flow and impairs collagen production. Unhealthy lifestyle choices can also result in oxidative stress and inflammation, further compromising the skin’s structure and elasticity.
Genetic Factors: Genetic predispositions can influence how the skin ages and how prone it is to sagging. Some individuals may have inherited genes that contribute to a loss of skin elasticity and firmness, making them more susceptible to sagging skin as they age.
HIFU Skin Tightening is a revolutionary skin-tightening procedure that helps you to lift and smooth sagging skin without surgery. HIFU Skin Tightening works by concentrating beams of ultrasound onto skin that has lost laxity, usually due to the natural ageing process. This process strengthens the underlying tissues in weakened skin while also stimulating your body’s own natural production of collagen. Subsequently, your skin continues to improve for many weeks after treatment!
Naturally as we mature, there is a decline in the production of vital strucutral proteins, namely, collagen and elastin. These are the structural proteins that give skin its suppleness and elasticity. As our production slows, our skin’s upper layers gradually wrinkle and sag.
In order to reverse this, HIFU sends ultrasound energy to selected depths below your skin’s surface. This causes small injuries to the underlying tissue. As that tissue heals, new collagen is produced, gradually giving you a natural rejuvenating effect.
We use the latest technology devices by Levura and Perfecte’me to deliver energy to the dermal tissue. This traumatises the treatment zone, which promotes healing, contraction, and collagen stimulation. During the treatment sessions, your skin becomes firmer!
HIFU Treatments can also incredibly be extremely effective for body slimming. Our advanced technology can help eliminate localised fat in parts of the body, such as around the thighs or hips. In this case, the treatment blasts stubborn fat cells with controlled energy, which heats them up and safely destroys them. As the damaged fat cells are gradually expelled by the body by its natural process, the skin in the area is also tightened.
