HIF Ultimate Guide from Lipo Freeze2u Birmingham

What Is High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound?

HIFU is also called Ultherapy, Ultrasound Facelift or 3D SkinMed. It’s an advanced cosmetic technology that can significantly tighten as well as lift several areas of your face, improve the tone of your skin and reduce the ageing signs in one session, with potential effects that are long-lasting.

How Does HIFU Work?

Ultrasound energy is used during the treatment to stimulate the deep layers supporting your skin. This creates an appearance that is lifted and tauter plus stimulates your body to produce collagen, which helps your skin in maintaining its youthful glow.

The technology of HIFU is unique in its capability to penetrate your dermis and the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) layer, which is deeper compared to all other facial treatments that are non-invasive. The SMAS is the very layer that’s tightened during the process of conventional facelift surgery.

Who is Suitable for HIFU Birmingham

Suitable candidates are people aged 30 years and above and who have seen that the skin on their neck or face has become laxer and want to lift plus tighten the relevant areas.

For patients in their thirties, it’s used to stimulate the production of collagen, thus help in delaying the ageing process. Most of the times, patients in their forties and fifties are known to be the most common age groups who usually have this treatment.

The treatment is also for people aged 60 and above provided the laxity degree isn’t too great. Additionally, it is suitable for people who have had surgery previously to extend surgical facelifts effects.

How Long Does It Take to See Results?

Patients may witness some first effect, though ultimately lifting plus firming will occur around three months, as collagen gets renewed and also replaced with new collagen that is stronger. As the process of collagen building continues, continued improvements may appear for up to six months.

How Long Do the Results of HIFU Birmingham Last?

Most clients find the results last more than one year, but annual touch-up treatments are recommended for you to be ahead of the process of ageing.

Does it Hurt?

Most patients don’t report pain. Some people may feel a warm sensation in their skin or a slight aching on their bony area during treatment.

Is HIFU Safe?

Many treatments have been performed all over the world using High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound technology without significant adverse effects. Also, people have been using ultrasound energy safely in the medical field for more than five decades.

Can a Facelift be Replaced by 3D-HIFU?

3D-HIFU isn’t a replacement for surgery. However, it’s perfect for those who want to uplift their neck and face and aren’t ready for surgery, either logistically, financially or psychologically. It’s regarded as more of an ‘uplift’ instead of a ‘facelift’, and it can be blended with other lifting treatments that are non-surgical to enhance the results further.

Is 3D-HIFU Classified as Surgery?

3D-HIFU is not classed as surgery. While the ultrasound treatment targets the deep skin layer usually addressed in surgery, it doesn’t involve general anaesthetic or even cutting your skin in any way.

Treatment Duration

The treatment takes between 30 to 90 minutes, it depends on the area that has to be treated.

The Type of 3D-HIFU treatment Results Achieved

Ultherapy addresses mild skin to moderately lax or loose skin, particularly by reconditioning plus renewing your skin from within. Ultherapy lifts your brow, which in turn decreases excess skin on your eyelids, opens up your eyes, and gives you an overall more refreshed appearance. People have reported their skin to be firmer and more toned in other areas of their face as well as their neck.

How Many 3D HIFU Treatment Do You Need?

The majority of people only need one treatment, but others can benefit from more than a single treatment. It depends on how much laxity they’ve and the biological response of their body to the ultrasound plus the process of collagen rebuilding.

Is There Any Downtime?

Normally, there is no downtime or even recovery time required. Most patients return to their daily activities immediately.

Can you Combine HIFU with Other Treatments?

HIFU is often used alongside other treatments for enhancing results like our fat freezing treatments for other parts of the body.
