The procedure explained
The procedure takes about an hour. As the body is required to produce more collagen you need to be patient and the full results may take up to 4 months before they are fully visible. The effects will last 2-3 years with the natural aging of your skin It is important that you understand the treatment and before your treatment you will have a comprehensive consultation.
When you arrive for your treatment please ensure that you have no facial make up. As it is important that the treatment is delivered in the correct places a cosmetic marker is used to mark the area. Then an even layer of ultrasound gel is applied to your skin – this ensures that the treatment is as comfortable as possible.
The top layer of your skin is not treated as the focussed ultrasonic energy penetrates through to the muscular level at 4.5 mm. After the treatment, you can simply go about your usual activities. The difference between HIFU and other in chair procedures is that the energy penetrates to varying preset levels – 4.5mm 3mm and 1.5mm , previously this was only achievable with surgery.
