Using HIFU: high intensity focused ultrasound.
After one treatment over a period of months substantial results can be seen. Some people may require a second treatment for an even greater result depending on age and skin laxity.
HIFU is perfectly suited to lift and tighten difficult to treat areas such as the neck and under the eyes. Redefine your facial contours with ultrasound technology.
REMODEL THE SKIN
ULFIT™ ultrasound technology works from the inside out delivering precisely focused beams of energy at three different depths in the skin’s layers. This stimulates the cells for collagen production and tissue remodeling with a result like no other treatment.
NO DOWN TIME
A non-invasive procedure that can be performed without having to plan a suitable recovery period as there is no down time post treatment. You can have the treatment done and go straight back to work on the same day!

Why choose HIFU?
ULFIT™ utilises the advanced ultrasound technology called HIFU: high intensity focused ultrasound. Ultrasound energy is delivered to particular levels in the skin to stimulate a multi layered skin tightening effect which occurs over a period of months.
A non-invasive procedure that uses the body’s own healing process to lift and tighten loose skin on the neck, jaw line, under the eye and brow.
Redefine your facial contours with ULFIT™.
ULFIT™ is a non-surgical procedure utilising ultrasound energy to tighten & lift loose skin on the face, neck, chin and more.

HIFU: High frequency focused ultrasound, uses both Micro and Macro Ultrasound technology, delivering precisely focused beams of ultrasound energy at three different depths in the skin’s layers.
Noninvasive ultrasound energy is delivered to these particular levels in the skin to stimulate a multi layered skin tightening effect which occurs over a period of months. The body’s natural wound healing response results in the formation of new collagen which leads to a tightening of the skin.
High frequency ultrasound technology works from the inside out bypassing the surface of the skin. HIFU also helps to tighten the muscle layer by targeting the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) which is directly above the facial muscle.
There are 3 phases of the wound healing response generated by the ULFIT™ treatment: HIFU treatment results in hemostasis and inflammation of the treated area. During the proliferative phase, tissue granulates, the wounded cells contract, and collagen synthesis begins. This leads into a skin remodeling phase where the collagen fibers strengthen and rearrange themselves, the skin tightens and lifts, and the fat layer is reduced.
HIFU can provide excellent results for most people with one to two sessions of treatment.
A very mild skin tightening effect can be felt almost immediately after therapy, with no thermal damage to the exterior of the skin. Some people may experience mild skin redness straight after treatment which generally subsides quickly afterward.
Results start appearing for most people 2 weeks following your ULFIT™ session and the skin continues to tighten and improve in texture for up to 6 months.
1 week: you may notice slight lifting and plumping of fine lines, possible slight tenderness. However results begin in two weeks.
1 month: slight lifting, skin will begin to feel tighter in some areas.
3-6 months: The real benefits of the treatment are now evident. Additional lifting, tighter better fitting skin, facial contours more defined.
We recommend two treatments for most people seeking optimal results however this is dependent on the amount of laxity of the skin we are treating. Some people may only require one treatment for great results. We also recommend a yearly maintenance treatment.
Results from HIFU will maintain your natural facial features whilst making your facial contours look younger and more defined unlike other procedures which can result in a sudden unnatural appearance.
The affect with HIFU is gradual and complementary.
The ULFIT™ hand-piece will be fitted with three different cartridges during your treatment. Each cartridge is designed to precisely target a particular level in the skins layer or with respect to the 4.5mm cartridge the SMAS layer.
On the day of treatment the skin will be cleansed, the area will be marked up and ultrasound gel is applied to the surface of the skin and the hand-piece is pressed onto each section and held for a few seconds whilst the energy is delivered to the target tissue. This is repeated until all desired areas are treated and then another pass is completed with a different cartridge for the subsequent layer.
Some areas such as the forehead and under the eyes will only be treated with the cartridge concerned with the uppermost layer. For a full face and neck treatment, time to complete will be approximately 45minutes to 1 hour. Some areas may be slightly uncomfortable during treatment and others there may be little to no sensation at all.
HIFU uses sound-waves (acoustic energy) to firm and tighten skin tissue, without affecting the uppermost layer of the skin, therefore there is no downtime with this treatment.
The ideal candidate for HIFU is someone who is losing their skin elasticity, typically those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity.
All skin types can have the ULFIT™ treatment. As there is no thermal damage to outer layer of the skin, color of the skin is not a concern. Anyone experiencing skin laxity due to a variety of reasons can have the treatment done. It is suited to people aged 20 and up for the following:
|Eyes & forehead||$500.00|
|Full face & neck||$1800.00|
