Nonsurgical skin lifting has become one of the most sought after treatments in recent years and although there are many similar treatments that can effectively target the upper layers of the skin, HIFU works even more effectively.
The reason for its increased effectivity is that HIFU has the unique ability to target points at multiple layers beneath the skin’s surface. HIFU (or high intensity focused ultrasound) has become known as the “lunchtime facelift” or ultrasound facelift. A single session can produce results, with a noticeable improvement in wrinkles becoming visible in three to six months, lasting up to three years.
Within the medical industry, HIFU has a long history of effective treatment and this amazing technology is now applied in advanced face and body sculpting treatments. If you’re considering this method, read on to find out whether HIFU really works.
HIFU Treatments In Sydney and the Gold Coast
At SABA Medispa in Sydney and on the Gold Coast, we can absolutely recommend HIFU as a number one choice in non-invasive alternatives. Although it is a relatively new cosmetic treatment, we have experience with thousands of procedures, and the results have spoken for themselves.
HIFU makes use of ultrasonic energy to penetrate deep below the skin and fat layers of the face to gently but effectively target connective tissue. This connective tissue is a layer that supports the neck and facial contours and will start to sag as a result of ageing. HIFU has a tightening effect on the loose connective tissue, restoring firmness to areas of sagging skin and resulting in a visible lifting effect. The layer of tissue targeted is the same tissue that would be tightened during a surgical facelift.
In most cases, only one treatment of HIFU is required to achieve the desired results with no recovery time whatsoever.
The advantage of HIFU is that improvements can be seen reasonably quickly, with maximum results expected after three to six months. The stimulating effect of HIFU promotes the production of new collagen, which does happen over a period of time. This will help your skin regain its natural, youthful elasticity.
Unlike some non-invasive treatments which require a course of treatments over several months, HIFU ideally requires only a single treatment. Results, however, may vary from person to person. Occasionally a follow-up treatment may be necessary depending on your responsiveness to the procedure. At SABA Medispa, we offer a complimentary review, follow up and touch up service three months after your procedure.
The ideal candidate for the treatment would be someone with mild to moderate skin sagging of the face, neck or eye area. Clients who have more compromised skin quality may still benefit from the treatment but could require two to three treatments and less dramatic outcomes may be achieved.
As with any treatment, HIFU is not a one size fits all solution and it would be best to discuss your treatment options with one of our friendly therapists at our Sydney or Gold Coast clinics. If you have mild to moderate signs of aging and sagging or wrinkles, you stand to experience excellent results with a fresh, youthful appearance after treating yourself to the HIFU alternative.
At Saba Medispa, we have highly trained and experienced professionals available in Sydney and the Gold Coast to provide your HIFU treatment in the safest and most effective way. For tightening and firming of the skin, HIFU offers a beautiful alternative that is non-invasive and quick.
