HIFU Treatment

  • HIFU lifting system is an ultrasound device that is used to tighten and lift skin. HIFU is not equivalent to a surgical face lift but there are significant advantages including: no down-time, no scarring or bruising, no pain and the results are natural.

    HIFU is a face-lifting and neck tightening technology that is revolutionary because of its use of focused ultrasound that creates ridiculously high amounts of heat in tiny little spots underneath the SMAS and deep subcutaneous tissue. A line of these spots will create a vector of pull or lift. The ultrasound energy can stimulate the body’s natural healing response and cause collagen production to create a tightening affect.

    This is not an overnight process but requires time for full results to be visible. Everyone is a little different with how quickly they respond to the procedure. It typically takes up to 3 months to see the full results of an HIFU treatment. Some people notice some changes pretty quickly which continue to improve for the first three months, but others will have a more gradual improvement.

    When delivering this energy, patients may feel some discomfort. Pain during an HIFU treatment varies greatly depending on the individual and their pain tolerance level. Many patients find HIFU pain-free. Some patients have a low tolerance and experience more discomfort. Finally, although you can certainly feel the treatment, the discomfort is for the most part completely gone immediately after the area is treated.

    It is used mainly on the face – the jawline, neck and upper face. The best patients have mild to moderate sagging of the facial tissues and do not wish to undergo surgery. These patients will often be highly satisfied with the results. If patients have a good deal of sagging facial tissue, HIFU results will frequently not improve the face enough to satisfy the patient.

    HIFU typically is a one time treatment. It is difficult to say the exact length of time an HIFU procedure will last. Results of 1-2 years are now being seen.

    Ultrasound (HIFU) is a frequency above 20,000 Hz sound waves, which direction is good, strong penetration, easy to get a higher concentration of acoustic energy propagation distance in water, can be used for distance, speed, cleaning, welding, gravel, sterilisation and disinfection. In medicine, the military, industry, agriculture has a lot of applications. Ultrasonic its lower frequency limit is approximately equal to the upper limit of human hearing is named.

    WHAT ARE HIFU TREATMENTS LIKE?
    No preparation is needed. Ultrasound gel will be applied to cleansed skin. The hand-piece will then be used to deliver ultrasound energy beneath the skin. Some patients may feel the energy at this point. Each treatments takes 60 to 90 minutes, but may be performed within 30 minutes. Some patients report feeling a slight prickling or heat under the skin. Cooling is not required.

Laser Treatment

  • Prices
  • Humans have had a problem with hair for thousands of years. Flint razors have been found that date back to the time of the cave-dwellers, and archaeologists have discovered obsidian shaving tools that are around 4000 years old. As well as shaving, other methods have been and are still used: plucking, waxing and needle epilation. All have a drawback – shaving, plucking and waxing are all temporary; needle epilation is only capable of treating one hair at a time.

    Excess hair may be the result of medical conditions, but the pressure to remove it may be cosmetic. Cultural norms and peer group pressure often require the removal of hair in certain regions such as the face, axillae (armpits), legs and bikini line for women and the chest and back for men.

    AW3 hair removal systems offers clinically-proven, safe and effective long-term removal of unwanted hair.

    What is Super IPL?
    Super Intense Pulse Light is the latest version of Intense Pulsed light(IPL) which is a third generation system used to treat Hair Removal,Skin Rejuvenation ,Thread veins,Acne,Pigmentation and Wrinkle Reduction.

    HOW IS SUPER IPL DIFFERENT TO IPL?
    IPL delivers light to the treatment area which heats up the hair follicles and destroy them. As intense heat is delivered to the area this can be painful for the client.This method is also more time consuming for the practitioner,as each area needs to be covered within the area. SUPER IPL works by sending out repetitive pulses of light heat to gently heat up the hair follicles to destroy them.By doings it this way the client feels much less pain.
    HOW DOES SUPER IPL WORK?
    The visible light source used in this procedure is attracted to melanin,which is found in hair. Because there is more melanin found in darker hair the darker hair the hair is,the more effective the treatment. During the treatment an optical coupling gel is applied to the skin to aid the treatment. This help to aid the light into the skin and to protect the skin from burning. The applicator is the glided onto the skin with repetitive pulses the light energy is absorbed into the hair causing a heat reaction to destroy the follicle.
    WHAT TYPES OF CLIENTS CAN BE TREATED?
    Clients with darker hair will find the treatment most effective due to the large concentration of melanin found in the hair,which will give optimal absorption of light energy and convert into heat. Clients with fair hair will find the treatment less effective as there is little melanin found in the hair,therefore less heat is produced giving us less certainty of destruction of the hair in the follicle.This means white,red and grey hair cannot be effectively treated.The upper layer of skin also contains melanin and the concentration increases when the skin exposed to UV light.Therefore it is important to let people with tanned skin fade to avoid excessive heat generation.
    WHY IS GEL USED DURING THE TREATMENT?
    It is necessary to apply an even coverage of gel to the skin prior to treatment to protect it from the heat of the light and to assure optimal transmission of light from the applicator to the skin.
    DOES IT HURT?
    The treatment sensation varies from area to area and from client to client.As the light energy is absorbed by melanin,the sensation that is felt depends upon the amount of melanin found in the epidermis and the hairs.Therefore it hurts more in darker skinned/tanned individuals and those with dense black hair.Most clients describe the sensations as quite moderate almost like the snapping of a rubber band,which only lasts for a short moment.
    WHY DOES THE CLIENT NEED TO SHAVE PRIOR TO TREATMENT?
    To assess the area and hair before treatment,hair need to be roughly 2mm long so it is then possible to program hair type into the system.
    WHY DO HAIRS APPEAR TO GROW AFTER THE TREATMENT?
    After the treatment the client leaves with hair.The heat from the AW3 System kills the hair but the hairs remain in the follicle and often become attached to the epidermis. These hairs will start to shed/fall out in a 1-3 week period after the treatment as the epidermis is renewed.During this period it will seem that the hairs are growing as the epidermis is pushing them out.The clients MUST be made aware of this otherwise they may be unsatisfied for a few weeks.
    WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
    The most common skin reaction is a mild rythema/redness of the skin that normally subsides a few hours to a few days after the treatment.In rare cases transient pigmentation changes of the skin can occur and small blisters as from excessive light can occur. A 1% hydrocortisone cream can be used if the client experiences adverse skin reaction.
    HOW MANY TREATMENT ARE NEEDED FOR PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION?
    Recommend 3-6 treatment with 4-8 weeks intervals for best results.
