Get the Facelift You Desire with HIFU Skin Tightening in Brisbane
Need the best way to eliminate saggy skin? Using a non-invasive technology like HIFU, you can easily repair loose skin to make a firmer and younger look. HIFU helps in skin tightening and lifting by leveraging ultrasound energy. At S Clinic we offer state-of-the-art HIFU ULTRAcel Q+ skin tightening and lifting in Brisbane.
What is HIFU Skin Tightening?
Short for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, HIFU is a cosmetic treatment for skin tightening that relies on ultrasonic thermal waves to treat saggy skin. Fully non-invasive, HIFU technology not only helps in tightening and lifting faces but also in contouring and smoothing bodies. The goal is to invigorate collagen production so as to enhance skin texture.
Thanks to being concentrated, the heat energy can be precisely targeted at the right areas without affecting or damaging other tissues. Compared to laser therapy HIFU has the potential to reach deeper layers of the skin and does not require any downtime.
Is HIFU ULTRAcel Q+ Different from Facelifts?
Yes, the two differ in many ways. A facelift is a surgical procedure that involves incision whereas ULTRAcel Q+ is non-surgical. Facelifts are primarily used for treating saggy and wrinkled skin. HIFU ULTRAcel Q+ skin treatments not just treat sagging skin but also bring tighter pores, enhance skin tones and reduce scars.
You can also treat multiple areas in a single ULTRAcel Q+ procedure which is not immediately possible in facelifts surgeries. Facelifts are also prone to adverse side-effects compared to ULTRAcel Q+ treatments.
What Happens During the Treatment?
Before moving ahead, our doctors first assess your past medical history to verify if you are the right candidate for HIFU ULTRAcel Q+ treatment. The treatment is not effective for patients with severe skin conditions and excessive saggy skin.
During the treatment, we mark the areas and apply a gel-like substance before placing the HIFU ultrasound device. The device then sends rapid heat bursts of ultrasonic waves on the skin. You may sense a slight discomfort in the form of prickling or a pulsating sensation.
The device is moved around repeatedly to achieve the desired results.
Are There Any Side-effects?
Other than minor discomfort, you may experience little redness or swelling but that is temporary and will go away after the procedure. A tingling sensation or warmth is also common among patients.
As the waves reach the deepest layers of your skin, you may also feel little numbness in certain areas. However, pain can be reduced by applying anaesthetic cream. Since there is little to no downtime, you can resume your daily activities. It is advised not to do any exercise or have hot showers post treatment.
How Many Treatments are Required?
The number of treatments depend on the kind of results you want to achieve and for which skin areas. Ideally, best results can be achieved in three sessions with gaps of four weeks in between.
You can expect positive skin tightening results in about a month or two. With the right care they can last for a year or even more.
