HIFU (High Intensity Focused
at Vivo Clinic
Looking for a non surgical face lift?, Well look no further, Vivo Clinic have the answer for you. Heard about a treatment called HIFU? HIFU stands for high intensity focused ultra-sound and it is a treatment used to tighten and lift multiple areas including the face, neck and décolletage.
The treatment is aimed to target individuals who want to reduce the signs of ageing and improve overall skin condition. HIFU is known to tighten and lift areas with one single session.
As you grow older the skin starts to lose its elasticity, which causes concerns such as the crow’s feet, frown lines and even drooping of the neck. These are all things that can happen when collagen proteins break down.
In simple terms we boost collagen within the muscle, which begins the process of tightening, lifting and toning of the skin. With HIFU we combat the same muscles surgeons operate on when administrating surgical lifts and due to this individuals only need the ½ treatments until a top up session is needed. This top up is typically recommended 12/14 months from the initial treatment date, however, individuals can come back after 4 weeks for a second treatment to boost the collagen in the area for a more effective result.
So how does the treatment work?
At Vivo Clinic we emit ultra-sound into the muscle layer that lies at the foundation of the skin. As a result we create micro-holes into the muscle walls. It might sound a little scary but Vivo Clinic can reassure you it’s not as these micro-holes are invisible due to the fact they are created using sound. New collagen begins to form in and around each individual micro-hole. Collagen is responsible for the most important agent which is the tightening, listing and toning of the skin. It will also give you a defined, replenished and youthful look.
It does typically take roughly 6-8 weeks to see a noticeable change in appearance and from that point results will continue to get better over the next 6 months, as the collagen will continue to grow and redevelop due to the collagen synthesis.
