3D hifu stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. 3D hifu uses multiple ultrasound beams to penetrate deep into the skin. It has an ability to reach deeper layers than all other non-invasive facial treatments, whilst still protecting the surface of the skin.
Depending on the area of your face, or body, a different level of ultrasound penetration will be used. For the delicate, thinner skin around the eye, the ultrasound penetrates to just 1.5mm whereas the thicker skin on your cheeks requires a penetration of 3.0mm - 4.5mm to reach the deeper layer. This deeper layer is called the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) and is the same layer tightened in a conventional facelift. The ultrasound beams converge in a targeted area to create thermal energy which makes the skin tighten and contract. It also stimulates new collagen fibres to form. This results in firmer, fresher looking skin.
3D Hifu is a technologically advanced alternative to conventional facelifting and can be used to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, eyebrows, cheeks, double chins and sagging necks. It can also be used for body contouring in a new approach to liposuction, where it targets unwanted cellulite and tightens skin.
3D Hifu is fast becoming one of the most sought-after treatments as it requires no cuts to the skin, no anaesthetic and you can return to normal life straight away, with no tell-tale signs or ill effects.
