More about your 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. Depending on diet and other external influences the results can last for up to 3 years.
It is important that you understand the treatment and before your treatment you will have a comprehensive consultation.
Please arrive for your treatment without makeup. Once on the treatment begins your face will be marked up so that the treatment area is clear. Once you are marked up a thin layer of cooling gel is applied to the area, this make the treatment more comfortable. Ultherapy Woking
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.
