HIFU (HIGH INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND) FACE LIFT TREATMENT
Non-surgical Face Lift
Are you after a natural looking result solution for sagging skin caused by the ageing process, but not ready to try surgery?
HOW DOES HIGH INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND WORK?
HIFU uses multiple beams of ultrasound. Individually the beams have no effect on the tisue; however, their area of convergence becomes a point of thermal evergy. Heating the tissue below the surface causes it to contract and tighten, while also forming new collagen fibres. Body Lift HIFU benefits are:

WHAT IS HIGH INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND?
Also called HIFU for short, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound has become one of the most sought after, non-surgical lifting treatments for the face and neck. It is also known as ‘Ultrasound Facelift’ or ‘Ultherapy’ or ‘3D Skinmed’. It can target, treat and lift the jowls, brow, and neck as well as tightening the skin.
HIFU can be used as a one-off treatment (depending on how much lifting is required) which will help you achieve tighter, firmer, lifted skin. We recommend a course of three treatments for the best results. High Intensity Focused Ultrasound treatments are now one of the most popular non-surgical, non-invasive ‘lunch-time’ face lifts and easy to access at Sawtry Beauty Clinic as we are between Huntingdon and Peterborough, just off the A1 motorway in Cambridgeshire.
The technology is unique in its ability to penetrate the dermis and the superficial muscluar aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer, which is deeper than all others non-invasive facial treatments. SMAS is the same layer which is tightened during conventional facelift surgery. Unlike surgery, HIFU is more affordable and requires no time off work.
Amanda, at Sawtry Beauty Clinic, uses three different cartridges to target levels of 1.5mm, 3.0mm and 4.5mm at around 60-70 degrees centigrade which leads to collagen denaturation, building new collagen, and making it quickly repair itself. This provides a focused treatment to the three different depths of the skin and targets the SMAS muscle layer, dermis and epidermis for optimum results.
These are the same layers that a plastic surgeon goes into with a scalpel. With High Intensity Focused Ultrasound there is no knife, no downtime and you can go straight back to work. No wonder it is called the lumchtime face lift!
HOW LONG BEFORE I SEE RESULTS FROM A HIGH INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND FACE, NECK OR DECOLLETAGE NON-SURGICAL TREATMENT?
Most clients will see a slight visible change immediately after treatment. However, Amanda says your face will continue to improve and tighten with the full benefits visible normally around 3 months after treatment. We recommend a course of 2-3 treatments is required around 3-6 months apart.
