HIFU Mini Face Lift is an non-invasive HIFU treatment without downtime for lifting and tightening sagging face skin including brows, cheeks, lower face (jowls)and jawline. It works deep below the surface to stimulate the growth of collagen “without harming the outer layer of skin”. This results in long-lasting firming, tightening and lifting of the skin, giving you a more youthful appearance after just one treatment.
While HIFU is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery. There are also younger people who are looking to prolong the effects of plastic surgery.
We also provide the option to upgrade the "Mini Facelift" treatment to "Facelift Plus" which also includes the neck area,especially for those who have double chin or wrinkles on neck. Please contact us for pricing details.
Commonly Asked Questions About HIFU Mini Face Lift
What is HIFU?
HIFU is High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. The system is designed for anti-aging, face lifting, body contouring and sculpting without surgery, bleeding or scarring. The HIFU beams through the surface of the skin to deliver precise and fractional ultrasound energy at the right depths (i.e., 3.0mm/4.5mm) to the SMAS layer without damage or disrupting the epidermal tissue of the skin. This energy stimulates both muscle firming and new collagen production, with no disruption to the outer skin surface (no scarring). It is especially suitable for treating sagging skin with reasonable thickness as well.
How Does It work?
3D HIFU System has 3 different sized (depth) cartridges that precisely target varying layers underneath the skin to promote tighter collagen formation, tissue contraction and reduction in the volume of adipocytes (fat cells). In addition to face, neck and skin tightening.
What Kind Of Results Will I Get?
Results can be seen immediately with collagen production increasing in the 6-12 weeks post treatment, resulting in a tighter, more contoured look that can last over 12 months. It has an immediate tightening effect by contracting the collagen fibres that support your skin but most importantly, HIFU treatment stimulates long-term production of new, stronger collagen, helping to lift and tighten sagging skin and fill out wrinkles.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
Some patients will need only one treatment and then can repeat the treatment every 12-18 months to maintain their results. For moderate to severe laxity, 2 treatments in the first 6 months may be recommended, and maintenance treatments every 12 months after that.
Patients suitable for HIFU Treatment are those with sagging and laxity of the skin, and can also be used on younger people who want to stay ahead of the game and slow down the ageing process.
Patients with facial implants or open wounds on their face are not appropriate for this treatment, we do not recommend treatment with the large sized cartridges to be used on clients with minimal facial fat volume.
