HIFU - NON SURGICAL FACELIFT
To bring to you the most advanced non-surgical procedures available, LA Perfection has teamed up with Clever Contours to offer this amazing skin treatment. Clever Contours are with us at least once a month offering this non-surgical facelift as well as Cryolipolysis (fat freezing) from our Witney clinic. Appointments are limited and the treatments are very popular so book early to avoid disappointment.
HIFU (High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound) is the only non surgical cosmetic procedure that can target the deep structural layers of the skin using ultrasound to lift and tighten the face, neck and décolletage areas. If you do not want to go under the knife and would like to look youthful in the most natural way possible then this is the option for you. This technology breakthrough in anti-ageing is the only FDA approved treatment with the specific intention of reducing wrinkles and lines. Our 3D HIFU machine truly is 3D and not just a brand name given to it. Our system can shoot 11 lines rather than 1 line like most treatments on the market. Our 3D 11 line handles mean that we have better precision and can focus more accurately to your chosen treatment area. Our 3D HIFU treats areas of the face, neck and décolletage. The skin will look plumper, fresher and more youthful. Unlike a surgical facelift, there is no down time, no incisions, no recovery time and no hugely expensive costs.
HOW IT WORKS
The technology is unique in its ability to penetrate the dermis and the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) layer, which is deeper than all other non-invasive facial treatments. SMAS is the same layer which is tightened during traditional facelift surgery. The ultrasound energy is able to target the deep layers of the skin and kick start the body’s healing response. The levels of collagen in the tissues then naturally increase, as the collagen increases, this leads to a gentle lifting and tightening of the skin. The process can take 12-24 weeks to see the full benefits, as this process takes place your skin will be plumper, fresher and smoother.
This procedures allows your own natural collagen to do the work of looking youthful in a more natural and healthier way. You will be amazed at the results.
Does HIFU really work?
Yes! It absolutely works. It is also FDA Approved and has been vigorously tried and tested in order to receive the accreditation. In addition to having FDA approval, we can honestly say that we have never seen results like it from such a simple and non invasive procedure.
What areas can I have treated?
How long does it take?
Anything from 30 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes. It depends on what areas you are having treated.
How many treatments will I need?
One treatment is enough to have excellent results and most people do not need a further treatment for 12-18 months.
You can have up to 3 treatments to acheive optimum results but this depends on your skin structure and would require a full consultation. It is most common to have the one treatment every 12 months.
What will I feel during the treatment?
The treatment is relatively painfree however you may feel heat and a slight tingling sensation.
What happens after the treatment and are ther any side effects?
When will I see a change?
You may start to feel a tightening of the skin after just a couple of weeks but the full effects will not be apparent for 12 weeks. This is the time it takes for the natural collagen in your skin to work its magic
What is the downtime after the treatment?
None whatsoever. You are even able to have the treatment in your lunch break and head back to work.
Is the treatment suitable for everyone?
The treatment is suitable for anyone who has got to a certain age and has mild to moderate skin laxity. We recommend that you be at least 30 years old to even see benefits from the treatment. Anyone experiencing lowered brows, jowls, sagging skin on the neck, lines on the face and chest are all perfect candidates for this treatment. The best way to find out is to book a consultation and we will advise if you are suitable.
What is the difference between your 3D HIFU and regular HIFU?
Our machine is the latest version of HIFU. Most machines will shoot one line of ultrasound at a time and the practitioner will move the handle along the face to shoot further lines. Our handles are able to shoot up to eleven lines at a time without moving the handle, meaning that is it more precise and has more accuracy at targetting the chosen area.
Why are you cheaper than other companies?
We are able to keep our prices low as we are a mobile clinic and we do not have premises and all the associated costs that go with it.
