THE CLEVER ALTERNATIVE TO INVASIVE SURGERY
If you don't 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. High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound is the best non surgical procedure currently on the market to reduce the signs of ageing without surgery or injectables. This technology breakthrough in anti-ageing is the only FDA approved treatment with the specific intention of tightening the jawline and neck, and reducing wrinkles and lines. Our HIFU specialist, Jo Minchin runs monthly clinics from LA Perfection. Her specialist machine can shoot 11 lines, rather than 1 line like most treatments on the market, meaning better precision, focused more accurately to your chosen treatment area.
HIFU treats areas of the face, neck and decolletage. 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
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.
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 procedure 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.
STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY
Jo's HIFU machine differs from most being used within salons currently. It shoots 11 lines as opposed to the one. This means that the targeted areas receive a more focussed level of ultrasound and we can ensure that the face or body has the optimum level of shots in the correct order. This also means that you receive more shots of Ultrasound in less time. For a reputable HIFU machine the average amount of lines shot for a Full Facelift is around 900 and takes around 2 hours.. Owner and founder of Clever Contours, Jo Minchin, carries out all HIFU treatments at LA Perfection. Jo is a specialist and trainer in this treatment and has referrals from Cosmetic Surgeons who have performed surgical face lifts and recommend HIFU for achieving longevity with their surgery. Jo has resounding success in the HIFU treatment and is considered a leader in her field. It is important to choose the right clinic based on the quality of their equipment before handing your face over!

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?
Eyes, brows, lower face including lasonabial folds, jaw Line, neck, decolletage and hands.
How long does it take?
Anything from 30 minutes to 2 hours. 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 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 9-12 months.
What will I feel during the treatment?
You can certainly feel the treatment but it is by no means painful or unbearable. You will feel heat and a slight tingling sensation. It is a strange sensation as the treatment is working below the skin and you can feel the ulstrasound. All of our clients happily chat through the whole treament.
What happens after the treatment and are there any side effects?
Your consultant will go through all of the potential side effects with you prior to your treatment and answer any questions you have. You will be given an aftercare leaflet and a contact number to call should you have any questions or concerns. You may experience slight redness but this will dissipate after a few hours. You could experience temporary bruising or numbness but again, this will go after a few days. After the treatment, we advise to drink plenty of water, regular moisturising and no facials or sun exposure within 48 hours.
When will I see a change?
You will see a difference immediately in the tightening of your muscles but the full effects will not be apparent for 12 - 18 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 mild to moderate skin laxity. We recommend that you be at least 30 years old to 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.
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.
