Everyone wants to look their best, but not everyone wants to deal with the risk or side effects that come with cosmetic surgery. Thankfully Ava Laser Clinic has a better option – the HIFU Facelift. High intensity focused ultrasound facelift is the perfect way to banish wrinkles from your skin painlessly. The non-invasive procedure is effective for up to two years. HIFU can be used to tighten the connective tissue, lift the brows and even smooth cellulite.
HIFU therapy from Ava Laser Clinic stimulates your skin to produce collagen by targeting the lower layers of your skin. The warming effect caused by the energy beam triggers your skin to initiate regenerate by producing neo-collagen.
The treatment works by focusing the ultrasound on the treatment area. This will cause the neck, face, and décolletage (neck and chest) areas to accelerate their natural healing. As the treatment takes effect, the skin will become firmer. All this is achieved by utilizing the natural regenerative capacity of the body. The surface skin isn’t harmed since the treatment targets the deeper levels of the epidermis. There is also no downtime following treatment so you can get on with your life quickly.
HIFU treatments address a range of cosmetic concerns such as:
The treatments start by one of our aestheticians passing the ultrasound probe over your treatment area. As the probe is moved evenly over the skin focused ultrasound waves penetrate the skin to reach the connective tissues. As the waves activate the healing response, the skin is tightened without affecting the surface layers. Our gentle non-surgical facelift can be used on any area of the face that is encountering sagging skin. We are able to treat specific spots or the entire face in a single session.
The exact treatment time depends on the size of the treatment area. In most cases, a session will last as little as 30 minutes up to 2 hours.
Patients will be able to see noticeable results after their first HIFU treatment. Follow up treatments can be scheduled as early as 8 months after your initial treatment. Using special cosmetics will help encourage the growth of collagen and the regeneration of your skin cells. We are happy to provide a list of recommendations following your treatment.
HIFU treatments from Ava Laser Clinic are non-invasive. As such, the top layers of your skin are not affected by the ultrasound waves. You are able to resume your normal activities as soon as treatment has been completed. In some cases, you may experience slight swelling or redness in the treatment area which will subside after a few hours. In rare cases, temporary surface numbness can occur.
If you have any type of metal implants in the treatment area, HIFU is not recommended. Patients that have certain blood disorders, silicone injections, or pacemakers should also avoid HIFU treatments. When in doubt, contact our office and we would be happy to offer guidance.
