New skin tightening and rejuvenation treatments which are effective are now available. 3D HIFU is the latest technology to excel in this area.

Improved results with –
- Increased output of energy
- 50% more energy delivering up to 10 lines of energy with each shot
- Visible benefits more quickly with overall improvement increased
- More precise delivery of energy
The main advantages of this type of treatment are:
The highly focused acoustic energy creates thermal coagulation zones at three different selected depths, following which a wound healing response results in the formation of new collagen, thus providing a long-term tightening of the skin. Generally a noticeable improvement in the client’s facial contouring fine lines and wrinkles will be visible within a four-week period. Ultherapy Horsham
What to expect.
Your HIFU treatment takes approximately 1 hour. The full effects of HIFU take approximately 12-24 weeks, however with 3D Hifu these results start to show more quickly. Depending on diet and other external influences the results can last for up to 3 years. Ultherapy Horsham
You will have a full consultation – during which time the both your goals and the treatment will be discussed.
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. Ultherapy Horsham
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 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. Ultherapy Horsham
How does the 3D HIFU feel? Ultherapy Horsham
Some clients feel a little uncomfortable during the treatment – although this is usually mild and transient. Clients describe it as tiny shots of heat. 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. Ultherapy Horsham
A moisturiser is applied to the skin after the treatment. 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.
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. Ultherapy Horsham
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 ) 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 .
