HIFU Eclip Therapy
Contour facial features and reduce skin sagging with ultrasound energy.
A skin tightening treatment with ultrasound energy
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (or HIFU) uses ultrasound technology to tighten, lift, and contour the skin.
HIFU is an advanced, long-lasting treatment that penetrates deeper and lasts longer than fractional laser or radiofrequency technology!
HIFU ultrasound is ideal for:
The neck, jawline, chin, brow, under-eyes, nasolabial folds and lower face
Lifting and tightening the skin
Restoring skin vitality
Reducing lax or sagging skin
Loss of elasticity
Benefits of HIFU skin tightening
Reduce double chin
Treat sagging skin in the neck, jaw and chin, for a tighter, more defined face and sculpted jawline.
Non-invasive with visible results
HIFU uses innovative ultrasound energy for amazing results without invasive surgery. Kickstart collagen production for brighter, clearer skin.
Reduce wrinkles & lines
HIFU non-surgical facelift restores skin tightness and lessens the appearance of wrinkles, for a more youthful look.
How does HIFU ultrasound work?
The ultrasound energy is applied deep into the dermis, subcutaneous fat and muscle layers to create gentle thermal injury. HIFU is a non-invasive procedure that uses the body’s own healing response to lift and tighten loose skin. This gives a lifting effect to your skin and helps restore its youth and vitality!
During the treatment, an ultrasound gel is applied, followed by the HIFU handpiece. Rows of rapid, precise ultrasonic heat energy are released, causing a warm prickling sensation. This is repeated over the whole treatment area. The procedure takes 30-60 minutes.
Following pre and post-treatment care guidelines will help optimise your results. Our Skin Therapists will walk you through any contraindications or side-effects that might affect you.
Some patients are not suitable for HIFU Eclip Therapy. The treatment should be avoided if:
- You have aesthetic threads, implants or recent dermal fillers in the treatment area.
- You are pregnant.
- You have open wounds or lesions on the treatment area.
- You have cystic acne.
- You have a pacemaker or electronic device implants in the treatment area.
If you have a history of cold sores, preventative oral antiviral tablets are recommended before and after treatment.
HIFU is considered very safe if performed by a trained and qualified professional. Some side effects may include:
- Slight redness or swelling
- Light tingling sensation of the treated area
- Treated area may appear flushed/red
- Temporary numbness or bruising (rarely)
HIFU Eclip Therapy is usually well tolerated and you can resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment. A small amount of mineral make up is okay to apply. Avoid saunas, steam baths and exercise for 24 hours after treatment. Apply broad-spectrum sunscreen for a week after treatment.
