FROM LA Lipo
One Treatment away from your perfect body
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure which uses the energy from multiple beams of ultrasound.
It is a non-invasive, non-surgical, clinically proven treatment that delivers fast and long-lasting fat reduction results. Cryolipolysis delivers a smooth sculpted body shape.
Individually the beams do not affect the tissue. However, their area of convergence heats the tissue below the surface causing it to contract and tighten, while also encouraging the production of our natural collagen deep in the skin’s layers.
Collagen production reduces as we age and HIFU encourages the production which will lead to better skin elasticity, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and a more youthful appearance.
HIFU is an ideal treatment for various areas, namely the brows, jowls, jawline, nasolabial folds, neck, abdomen, and so on.
Because of the effectiveness in targeting lines and wrinkles associated with aging, HIFU is also commonly used to treat crow’s feet and frown lines. Focused ultrasound -HIFU can assist with tightening loose skin, reducing wrinkles, and boosting your confidence in your appearance.
The treatment is completely non-invasive and, for the most part, people experience no pain.
Benefits For you
How Does It Work?
A small amount of warmth and tingling is felt during the treatment, but afterwards there will only be a slight ache and mild swelling. There is no down time required and you can return immediately to your daily life.
Often you’ll notice a significant tightening straight after treatment but it can take 3 to 6 months for new collagen to naturally form and the skin to strengthen.
However, we strongly recommend an annual “refresh treatment” to maintain the results for an extended period of time and keep you ahead of the aging process.
HIFU is a non-surgical, non-invasive facelift, as we age the amount of collagen our body produces declines, HIFU encourages the production of our natural collagen on a cellular level without harming our skin tissue.
It results in the appearance of tighter more youthful skin.
HiFu treatment is clinically proven to not cause harm to your skin. Apart from the some immediate swelling and redness which fades almost immediately, there is no harm caused on the skin.
The ultrasound is very direct aiming at the targeted tissues. There is no skin abrasion or cutting during the procedure, it is completely non-invasive.
You will see an immediate more youthful appearance to your skin but results will continue to be seen over the coming weeks with the maximum results seen at 3-6 months as your collagen production increases.
The stimulating effect of HIFU promotes the production of new collagen, which does happen over a period of time.
This will help your skin regain its natural, youthful elasticity. We all produce collagen at different rates so result times will differ between people.
