3D HIFU Technology
Non-surgical skin lifting has become one of the most sought-after treatments on the market. HIFU and now 3D HIFU is one of the latest of these types of treatments. Using HIFU you only have to have a single visit, and it is a particularly good at treating, crows feet, jowls, and around the nose area. This newer type of machine delivers more effective results than original machines.
Better results with –
- More exacting treatment
- More focussed heat
- 50% more energy delivering up to 10 lines of energy with each shot.
- Higher levels of client satisfaction with improved results
The main advantages of this type of treatment are:
Concentrated sonic energy creates thermal coagulation at different layers in the skin, which reacts with fibroblast action to repair the purposely damaged area. The overall result is tighter firmer skin. Generally a noticeable improvement in the client’s facial contouring fine lines and wrinkles will be visible within a four-week period. Ultherapy Camberley
More about your appointment
Your HIFU treatment takes approximately 1 hour. Despite initial results after 28 days – the full effect can take up to 24 weeks . With 3D HIFU these results are apparent sooner. HIFU provides long term results and can still be seen for up to 3 years after your treatment.
As with all treatments I provide a thorough consultation where we will discuss any concerns and assess your facial rejuvenation goals.
When you come to the clinic please make sure that you have removed your make up. As it is important that the treatment is delivered in the correct places a cosmetic marker is used to mark the area. To improve the comfort of the treatment ultra-sound gel is applied evenly over the area.
During the treatment the surface of the skin is not effected as the energy penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin at 3 different levels. After the procedure there are little or no side effects and you can resume normal activities. With the advantage of three treatment depths (1.5mm, 3mm and 4.5mm), 3DHIFU has the capability of penetrating to depths only previously possible with surgery.
How does the 3D HIFU feel? Ultherapy Camberley
In general that treatment is quite acceptable, although some clients feel a little discomfort. The energy is delivered in individual shots – and some people describe it as a pin prick feeling. Client have different levels of tolerance for the treatment – some find it more comfortable than others. The 3D HIFU hand piece creates it energy in specific lines – meaning that the placement of the energy is more precise and is more pleasant.
On completion of the treatment the skin requires the application of a good moisturiser. Clients often experience erythema in the treated area, however this will subside in a few hours – in some cases this may last longer. You will be given post treatment advice and it is important that you follow this in order to achieve the best results. Ultherapy Camberley
Post your procedure you need to ensure that you do not allow your skin to be exposed to excessive heat or cold. In addition use sun protection. You are able to apply make up directly after your treatment. Although do not apply products that contain retinols as this may cause irritation.
Occasionally clients experience a little soreness, bruising, and sometimes heat bumps – these will all resolve within a few days ( in some clients this may take longer ) Bruising may not show for several days after the treatment and can appear yellow / green in colour. The areas that a most prone to bruising are the jawline and the cheek bone. Ultherapy Camberley
Even if you have not bruised, the area may still be tender to touch.This is usually most evident along the jawline and cheekbone and most often noted when touching your face, washing or applying makeup. Although this may be uncomfortable to the touch it will only be transient and will not effect drinking and eating . Ultherapy Camberley
