Do I have to do anything before my treatment?
A consultation is always needed as this will give us a chance to assess your requirements and will help us to understand what results you are looking for so we can find the perfect solution for you.
How long is the treatment?
Each session is dependent on the treatment area, but we advise around 60-90 minutes per area. Your treatment will be tailored to your individual requirements which will be discussed in your pre-treatment consultation. Additional time will be required if you require more areas.
How Long Do Results Last?
Individual results will differ, however on average a minimum of one to two years.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
Most patients only need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body’s natural aging process.
Will I need to take time off?
With HIFU, there is no downtime. After your procedure ,you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.
What does the HIFU treatment feel like?
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.
