HIFU Mini Face Lift

 Facial Treatment 

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. HIFU requires no special recuperation or preparation and typically only takes one treatment to get a meaningful response. Patients enjoy some initial effect immediately following the procedure, but the ultimate lifting will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen.




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.




Client Suitability


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. 3D Hifu is for people whose skin has “relaxed” to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. A lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of “maturing” skin. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates.




Contraindication


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. Patients with dermal fillers administered within the last 3 months cannot be treated in the same area – as the heat of the Ultrasound is known to dissolve fillers.




Possible Side Effects


Your skin may appear red for a few hours after the HIFU treatment. You may experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness for a few days after treatment. Rarely, some patients may experience temporary bruising welts or numbness. Temporary nerve inflammation will resolve in a few days or weeks. If a motor nerve has become inflamed, you might experience some temporary local muscle weakness. There could be some temporary numbness if a sensory nerve has become inflamed.




How is 3D HIFU different from Laser?


Lasers typically address issues in the superficial layers of the skin (e.g. fine lines, wrinkles, pigment changes). 3D HIFU addresses the deep skin layer and the foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery that lift and lend support to the skin.




Is The Treatment Safe?


The procedure has been demonstrated safely in clinical studies, and tens of thousands of treatments have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.




How Long Does The Treatment Take?


A full face treatment takes 45-60 minutes, and a partial face or brow lift treatment can take around 30 minutes—neither with any downtime.




How Long Until I See The Results?


Patients may enjoy some initial effect but the ultimate lifting and toning will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, more elastic collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a procedure.




How Long Do The Results Last?


Patients treated with 3D HIFU still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age.




Will I Need More Than One Treatment?


The majority of patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment (depending on how much laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and collagen-building process).
