What is HIFU and how does it work?
Ultrasound is an oscillating sound pressure wave, created by a very rapid vibration of an ultrasonic head of the device , with a frequency greater than the upper limit of the human hearing range. Ultrasonic energy generates gentle heat under the skin when focused .

The HIFU beams through the surface of the skin to deliver precise and fractional ultrasound energy generating gentle heat to the skin . This energy stimulates natural new collagen production, with no cells disruption , no damage to the outer skin surface (no scarring).No physiological changes to the human body at all .

What results can I expect to see?
The process of skin regeneration and rejuvenation takes time , best visible results are usually seen after ~8 to 12 weeks, but as noted, as natural effect will continue, and can be seen firming and lifting the skin for up to 6 months after the treatment. On this basis a repeat HIFU Face Uplift treatment is NOT recommended until at least 6 months after the initial treatment.

How long do the results of HIFU last?
HIFU results are permanent and will continue improving gradually for up to six months following the treatment. You will not be frozen in time. After six months, as with any age defying treatment, your skin will naturally continue to age but HIFU can give you fresher, younger looking skin for approximately 12 to 24 months after your treatment. Follow up treatments can assist with the ageing process, which varies from person to person, but are recommended every 12 to 24 months to maintain results.
(Radio Frequency) RF is also very effective at protecting and maintaining your HIFU results. RF treatment can be done as soon as few weeks after the HIFU treatment.

Contraindications?
People who have open lesions or wounds, cystic acne, existing keloid scarring, mechanical or dermal implants, implanted electrical devices (pacemakers) or metal implants in the face or treated area, pregnancy or breastfeeding, warfarin or other blood thinners, anti-epileptic medication, anti-depressants, anti-psychotic medication should not proceed with HIFU.

How safe is HIFU?
HIFU uses the safe, time-tested ultrasound, which has been effective in clinical studies and over 350,000 patient treatments worldwide. HIFU is one of the few treatments safe for all skin types, as it uses ultrasound and bypasses the upper layers of skin where the pigment cells are located. A great cosmetic treatment .

Are there any side effects from HIFU?
HIFU may cause a slight redness to the skin, but this usually disappears within a matter of hours after the treatment. Face can feel tighter . Makeup application after the treatment can be made to mask any mild redness that may have occurred. Some people may also suffer from a slight  tenderness,. These symptoms are usually mild and only last temporarily.


How painful is HIFU?

HIFU may cause some small discomfort , there is no pain . Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.
During the treatment delivery, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the natural collagen-building process has been stimulated.

If you are sensitive to pain, you might choose to self-medicate with paracetamol  half an hour before the treatment to make the experience more comfortable. You CAN go home straight after the treatment unless you have self-medicated with codeine in which case you should make travel arrangements.
NOTE: anti-inflammatory pain killers (eg. ibuprofen (Nurofen) are NOT recommended for the HIFU treatment, but can be used post-treatment .

After Your Treatment
-There is no downtime! You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements. Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours.
-Avoid hot water when washing the face until the ‘blush’ has subsided.
-Makeup (preferably mineral based) may be applied immediately post treatment.
-Soothing, non-irritating creams or moisturisers may be used.
-Avoid (minimise) sun exposure immediately after the treatment.
-Avoid exfoliation, or any aggressive skin treatment, for at least one week or until all sensitivity in the treatment area has subsided.
-Increase protein intake to boost the skin healing (collagen regeneration) process.
-Highly recommend gentle, regenerative and healing facial treatments (such as Collagen, Oxygen Therapy and LED light therapy) to boost the neoelastogenesis and neocollagenesis processes; treatments can start once all sensitivity in the treatment area has subsided – usually 1-2 weeks post HIFU treatment.
-Regenerative, nourishing serums and moisturisers are the best to use home-care products.
