HIFU FACELIFT EDINBURGH
HIFU is also known as the Non-Surgical Facelift is a lifting and firming treatment that allows clients to achieve younger and healthier-looking skin and is available at our Edinburgh clinic. Some clients take drastic measures to turn back the clock, however, the Non-Surgical Facelift is able to renew skin collagen and restore a radiant wrinkle-free look. With no injections or downtime, HIFU is able to dramatically reduce the signs of aging without the need for surgery.
Quickly becoming one of the most sought-after anti-aging procedures, the treatment works by delivering high-intensity focused ultrasound to the deepest layers of the skin. This ultrasound energy penetrates the skin to reach the deeper dermal and sub-dermal levels, causing injury to the underlying tissue and stimulating a healing process. The healing process accelerates the skin’s production of collagen, which causing the skin to tighten to create a bright youthful complexion.
As the treatment targets lower levels of tissue, the procedure works from ‘the inside out’ meaning results build gradually over 2-3 months, this creates a visible lifting effect and provides skin with a youthful appearance. The treatment dramatically reduces the appearance of wrinkles and skin becomes firmer and more radiant than before.
With this incredible treatment, some clients are able to notice results immediately, however, most of our clients see results approximately three months post-treatment. One of the most impressive aspects of HIFU is that you will continue to see improvements for up to six months as the skin continues to produce fresh collagen. Over time, wrinkles will be reduced and skin texture will vastly improve, leaving you with a bright glowing complexion!
