As we age collagen production slows down. Our face and neck begin to lose tone and elasticity and we often notice our skin becoming looser or start to sag. This can result in particular concern around the jawline or jowls, the neck and brow area; ageing us prematurely.
Our HIFU treatment uses Ultrasound energy which is able to target the deep structural layers of the skin. By delivering heat at specific depths we can kick start the skins healing response, which naturally increases the levels of collagen in the tissues. As collagen increases, a gentle lifting and tightening of the skin is the result. This helps to reduce the signs of ageing, leaving a younger, more refreshed appearance.
Who is suitable for treatment?
A suitable candidate is someone who is aged 30+ who has noticed that the skin on their face or neck has become more lax and wishes to lift and tighten the relevant area. For patients in their 30s it is typically used to stimulate collagen production and hence help delay the ageing process.
Patients in their 40s and 50s are the most common age group who have this treatment. It is also suitable for those aged 60+ provided the degree of laxity is not too great. It is also for those who have had surgery in the past to prolong the effects of surgical face-lifts.
