In just one single session 3D Hifu – targets individual areas lifting cheeks and jawline and reducing nasolabial folds and peri orbital wrinkles. 3D HIFU which is the latest version of this treatment has considerable benefits over its predecessor.
BENEFITS OF NEW 3D HIFU

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. Clients are able to see benefits after about 4 weeks, these being improvements in fine lines and improved facial contouring. Ultherapy Guildford

About the treatment
The procedure takes about an hour. The full effects of HIFU take approximately 12-24 weeks, however with 3D Hifu these results start to show more quickly. The effects will last 2-3 years with the natural aging of your skin
As with all treatments I provide a thorough consultation where we will discuss any concerns and assess your facial rejuvenation goals.
Please arrive for your treatment without makeup. At the beginning of the treatment a white pencil is used to precisely mark up the treatment area. Then an even layer of ultrasound gel is applied to your skin – this ensures that the treatment is as comfortable as possible.
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. Once the treatment is completed you are able to resume as normal. 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.
What does 3D HIFU feel like? Ultherapy Guildford
You may feel a little discomfort during an HIFU procedure. Clients describe it as tiny shots of heat. As with all treatments – it will depend on your pain thresh hold as to how well you tolerate the procedure. 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.
Once your treatments is complete you can apply your regular make up ( except products that contain retinols ) It is also important that you use a good SPF Sun protection. Ultherapy Guildford
Some clients feel soreness and a little bruising accompanied by heat bumps, whilst this is rare it will disappear with in a couple of days – although sometimes this may take longer. Because the treatment is at such a deep level bruising may occur several days after the treatment and may look greeny / yellow in colour. Most common areas for bruising are along the jawline and cheekbone.
Bruising does not always show – however the area may still be sensitive to touch – you may notice this when you are putting on make up or using a flannel Although this may be uncomfortable to the touch it will only be transient and will not effect drinking and eating .
