What is 4D HIFU?
HIFU is a non-invasive procedure with no downtime. It is a great treatment which achieves the results of a facelift or a body lifts without the need for invasive surgery or injections! You can see the result after one treatment immediately, it takes a longer time to see the best results, because it penetrates deep into the skin to stimulate natural production of collagen gradually. This means that HIFU results, though gradual, will look very natural. It uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to tighten and lift facial and body skin. It targets 3 different layers of the superficial and dermis along with SMAS (muscle layer). This is the same layer of the tissue that surgeons pull tight in a facelift!
HIFU works by directly delivering the ultrasound energy to the tissues. This then heats the tissues allowing it to contract resulting in tightening of the skin and formation of new collagen, which provides a long-term tightening effect. The energy also stimulates and renew the skin’s collagen which improves the texture and reduce the appearance sagging of the skin by increasing its collagen production.
The depth of High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound is between 1.5 to 16 mm. This allows to target the deeper SMAS muscle layer – that no other skin tightening treatments can reach!
Benefits of HIFU Treatments
- Suitable for face, neck and body like arms, legs, hands, back & stomach!
- Wrinkle removal
- Skin lifting and tightening
- Skin smoothing improves sagging and other signs of the aging phenomenon
- Suitable for all skin types
There is actually no downtime. The client is able to resume normal activity after the treatment without any interruption.
HIFU uses ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift, without disturbing the surface of the skin. This stimulates the creation of new collagen, which helps the skin maintain its youthfulness. This requires no special recuperation or preparation and typically only takes one treatment to get a desired result. Patients enjoy some initial effect immediately following the procedure, but the ultimate lifting will take place over 3-6 months, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen. The results continue to work from permanently to a minimum of 12-36 months. How long results last depends on your body's natural aging process and how fast you age along with lifestyle.
HIFU is the best treatment to reach the SMAS muscle layer compared to other treatments in the market! It even has similar effects as a surgical face lift!
HIFU 4D HIFU (High Intensity Infrared Ultrasound) uses focused ultrasound energy to promote the body’s own collagen production, for skin tightening and lifting. It targets the underlining skin levels including the SMAS (muscle layer) at the right energy and temperature to tighten, lift and strengthen for a more youthful you. Results are scientifically proven to improve up to 6 months.
The Latest In Non-Invasive Facial Lifting
High intensity focused ultrasound therapy is the latest noninvasive technology for facial lifting,skin tightening and body sculpting. HIFU directly delivers ultrasound energy to the skin and subcutaneous tissue that can stimulate and renew collagen and thus consequently improving the texture and reducing sagging of the skin.
It precisely achieves the results of a face lift or body lifts without any surgery or injections moreover an added bonus of this procedure is that there is no downtime. The High intensity focused ultrasound reaches depths of skin targeting the SMAS ( Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) this layer is what is target in lifting surgeries therefore HIFU greatly breaks through the previous limitations, it is the first machine that con non invasively treat the SMAS layer!
