High Intensity Focused Ultrasound also known as ‘3D SkinMed’, ‘Ultrasound Facelift’ or ‘Ultherapy’ has become one of the most sought after lifting treatments for the face and neck. 3D SkinMed is a one-off treatment which will help you achieve tighter, firmer, lifted skin.
A revolutionary non-surgical treatment that utilises ultrasound waves to helps the skin to defy gravity. Promising visible results without any downtime, HIFU harnesses ultrasound energy to stimulate the production of the skin’s natural elastic bands – or collagen – just below the skin’s surface that are the secret to smooth, firm skin. This treatment delivers immediate lift, with results improving over time.
HIFU Face and Neck Lift – key advantages:
- Stimulates natural collagen production
- Non invasive
- No recovery time
- Noticeable results
- Annual treatment
One session of 3D SkinMed will deliver a visible lifting and tightening effect. It will also stimulate the creation of new collagen to maintain your youthful glow.*
Individually it targets brow, jowl and neck lifting, as well as delivering overall skin tightening and rejuvenation. You will see a noticeable improvement in facial contouring, fine lines and wrinkles.*
*Results may vary from person to person.
How does it work? HIFU stands for ‘High Intensity Focused Ultrasound’. During this treatment, ultrasound energy is used to heat up and stimulate the deep layers which support the skin. In doing so it creates a lifted, more taut appearance and stimulates the body to produce collagen.
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 facelifts. Elizabeth M offers a consultation and patch test to assess whether this treatment is suitable for you.
