3D HIFU

3D HIFU stimulates the synthesis of new collagen and collagen regrowth by targeting deep layers of the skin. The treatment is highly effective on the face and neck and is quick, efficient, and with no downtime.

What is 3D HIFU?

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-surgical treatment which targets various depths of the body’s tissue for skin tightening, skin lifting and body contouring.

HIFU delivers energy at a depth of 1.3 cm and 8 mm to destroy fat cells. The high frequency of the ultrasound wave results in heating under the skin, destroying the fat cells and tightening the skin. The damaged cells are flushed away via the lymphatic system that continues for up to 3 months.

How Does 3D HIFU Work?

3D HIFU delivers focussed ultrasound waves to a precise depth to cause necrosis of the fat cell. The high frequency of the ultrasound wave, results in rapid heating of the focal zone at 1.3 cm and 8 mm under the skin. However this energy increases in temperature as it gets deeper within the skin due to the energy of the HIFU causing cellular friction. Exposing the fat cell to this high temperature causes rapid cell death.

What Happens During the Treatment?

Following a full assessment and consultation, a hand piece is used by the aesthetician to delivered focused ultrasound waves to the fat cell at a precise depth. This results resulting in necrosis (death of fat cells). The treatments takes around 90 mins.

What are the Results?

Results can be seen from 2-4 months post treatment and last between 12-18 months. The average reduction of the treatment area after just one single session is typically 2-4 cm. An annual repeat treatment is recommended to maintain results.

3D HIFU FAQs

High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) uses ultrasound energy to encourage the production of collagen, which results in firmer skin and body contouring.
Focused ultrasound waves are delivered by 3D HIFU to produce fat cell necrosis. Rapid heating raises temperature when it penetrates deeper into the skin because cellular friction is brought on by the HIFU’s energy. This high temperature causes the fat cell to rapidly die.
The face and neck are treatable areas using 3D HIFU.
A single treatment per area is recommended.

Results can be seen from 2–4 months post treatment. The average reduction of the treatment area after just one single session is typically 2–4 cm. The duration of results is around 12-18 months. An annual repeat treatment is recommended to maintain results.

There is no down time and you may resume your activities following your treatment.
Avoid sun exposure for a few weeks, and take a break from alcohol. Try to drink plenty of water and avoid hot baths or showers. Also do not scratch or rub the treated area.
