What is HIFU?
High intensity focus ultrasound (HIFU) is a revolutionary alternative to a cosmetic face-lift - without the need of surgery. HIFU lifts and tones the face, neck and eyes resulting in a dramatic yet natural uplift.
How does it work?
HIFU targets deep down in the foundation layer of your skin, the same layer addressed in cosmetic surgery.
Unlike lasers, which penetrate the skin from the outside in, the HIFU procedure bypasses the surface of the skin, and delivers targeted energy specifically into the deep, structural tissues, muscles, the dermis and epidermis.
The ultrasound waves causes a micro trauma, and therefore promotes a reaction. As the tissues heal and rejuvanate, collegen and elastin production is stimulated 400 times more than normal. This has a long lasting tightening and lifting affect on the face and neck.

Are there side effects?

Does it hurt?
HIFU does not cause major discomfort. You may feel some discomfort, warmth or heat sensation or even a slight pressure that lasts less than a few seconds and only during the pulsation cycle when ultrasound energy is being applied. The discomfort is very brief and a good sign that the collagen building process has begun.
HIFU fat busting treatment - This is used to target stubborn areas of fatty deposits.
Hifu targets ultrasonic waves deep into the sub cutaneous fat cells Focusing the ultrasound energy of HIFU Body at 1-2 cm below the surface of the skin avoids any burns or trauma to the skin and makes the treatment more comfortable.
The fat cells are disrupted by the HIFU causing the macropages (white blood cells) to rush to the area and disperse the fat via the liver and lymph.
This can result in a average 3-8 cm in 1 to 3 treatments and 45 days between each treatment is required. This allows the body recovery time and for the fat to be removed efficiently

Drinking at least two litres of water each day throughout your course will aid the toxins released by the fat cells to be flushed out of the system.
