HIFU Facial Treatment
HIFU Facelift: Non-Surgical Facelift
At our medical aesthetics clinic in Toronto we offer a non-surgical facelift option know as the HIFU Facelift.
What is HIFU?
HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound.
A relatively new cosmetic treatment, HIFU is a non-invasive treatment method that is a suitable replacement for facelifts, fat reduction and body contouring. In other words, HIFU is a non-surgical facelift that is becoming increasingly more popular throughout Toronto and beyond.
HIFU Facial Treatment: How Does It Work?
HIFU uses ultrasound energy to transfer heat to the layers of skin deep below the surface. When this heat is applied, the targeted skin cells are damaged. In this case, this cellular damage is a good thing because the action causes the body to start the repair process.
What is the difference between HIFU and 4D Ultra HIFU?
The 4D Ultra HIFU can shoot 12 lines per shot, where traditional HIFU shoots one line per shot.
It results in quicker treatment. Additionally, it provides higher energy, effective and long-lasting results.
HIFU and Collagen
During this repair and rejuvenation process, the ever-important substance called collagen is produced. Collagen is an enormously important building block of skin. It provides structure to the skin and promotes elasticity.
HIFU Facial Treatment Benefits:
Facial rejuvenation (HIFU facial)
Face lifting: lifting of cheeks
Eyebrows and eyelids
Reduce the appearance of sagging jawline and jowls
Skin tightening on face, neck & decollete
Reduce double chin
Much shorter recovery than a surgical facelift
HIFU Side Effects
Although rare, some may experience temporary numbness, swelling or minimal bruising after a HIFU therapy treatment.
These HIFU treatment side effects, however, are mild and usually go away after a few days.
As a result, clients appreciate the very short recovery time.
How many sessions do I need?
Generally, people need only one treatment. However, some clients benefit from additional treatment after 4 weeks.
Future touch-up treatments may be taken by the client yearly, to keep pace with the body’s natural aging process.
When do you see results with HIFU treatment?
Results can be seen within 1-4 months. HIFU treatment will gradually improve your skin, giving younger-looking skin for approximately 2 years after your treatment.
