Hifu Body Sculpting

For a long time, body sculpting has been associated with intense work outs in the gym or plastic surgery (tummy tucks, liposuction, and body lifts). However, more and more people are opting for non-invasive procedures that facilitate body sculpting. This is where high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) treatment comes in.

How Does HIFU Work?

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound treatments, otherwise known as HIFU, offer a convenient and precise approach to body sculpting. The potential of HIFU was first discovered as a result of medical ultrasound procedures. Experts noted that typical ultrasounds are capable of altering and repairing tissues within a targeted area without causing negative impacts to the surrounding tissues. Due to its focus on non-ionizing energy, it is a particularly safe procedure too.

A natural process known as collagen synthesis means that damaged skin cells can repair and replenish themselves. Meanwhile, the body continually loses and replaces cells throughout the body. HIFU focus on the core principle of eradicating fat cells from the body, which then allows the skin to repair itself through collagen synthesis and elastin production. Subsequently, then, you will be left with healthy skin cells and no more fat cells, producing smoother skin in just a single session.

HIFU procedures disrupt fat cells in the form of triglycerides, which are enzymatically metabolised to glycerol before being absorbed by the circulatory system. This means that the HIFU can be completed quickly and with great accuracy, while the noninvasive properties mean there is no pain, allowing you to avoid anaesthesia too. The removal of fat cells and the production of new healthy cells can help reverse the signs of ageing to restore elasticity and youthful appearances.

What is HIFU Used for?

The nonsurgical HIFU offer excellent precision due to the advanced fat cell removal methods. The highly focused acoustic energy created by the vibrations of ultrasound technology can increase the temperature of the fat cells (without impacting the surrounding cells) until they overheat at over 70 degrees and die. It is achieved through thermal coagulation zones at 3 different selected depths, and triggers the body's natural wound healing response as mentioned above.

An alternative method for killing fat cells only is to use the compression and expansion of sound waves to create tiny gas-filled cavities. Once they implode, the cavities destroy the targeted fat cells on a structural level. Once again, this kicks the body's wound healing response into action. This method is actually the more popular choice due to increased precision. Fat debris from the treatment is reabsorbed without causing any changes to your healthy lipid profile.

HIFU has now been used in a cosmetic capacity for well over a decade, meaning you can use it with confidence, not least because the only side effects are temporary swelling, numbness, and bruising. HIFU can be used to treat the body too, but the facelift procedures can achieve many individual results, including but not limited to;

  • Individual brow lifting, 
  • Jowl line lifting, 
  • Nasolabial fold reduction, 
  • Periorbital wrinkle reduction,
  • Overall skin tightening and rejuvenation

The HIFU facelift appointment can be completed in as little as a single one-hour appointment at our specialised London salon, which is equipped with the latest 3D Ultimate HIFU tech facilities. Most patients notice visible improvements in relation to facial contouring, fine lines, and wrinkles within 4 weeks while the full rewards can be seen after 6 weeks. 

 What Exactly Can It Achieve?

Before selecting any cosmetic treatment, you need to know what can be achieved. HIFU facelifts are ideal for a host of reasons. Most importantly, though, you must confirm that the nonsurgical procedure can actually achieve what you want.

The great news is that it can be picked to target a host of facial issues relating to the skin. You can complete a range of procedures include;

  • Eye rejuvenation treatment.
  • Lip lift treatment.
  • Eyebrow lift treatment.
  • Half face treatment.
  • Full face treatment.
  • Full face and neck treatment.

After the procedure has been completed and the full effects have become visible, you should see that your skin look tighter and more youthful. It will have a greater level of elasticity and can potentially retain increased moisture levels. When supported by the reduction of wrinkles and plumper skin, it can transform the way other people look at you. Crucially, it can improve the way you look at yourself!

HIFU facelifts are the safest and quickest route to rejuvenate your look to restore its natural beauty without losing the key attributes that make you.., well, you. What more could you ever want from a cosmetic treatment?

Does HIFU Work?

In a word, yes. But you probably want greater clarification than that. Studies have shown that up to 94% of patients are happy to note visible improvements. Meanwhile, the success of HIFU treatments for removing tumours underlines the capabilities of the technology and technique. 

HIFU facelifts were borne from the benefits noted in medical treatments, are backed up by science, and a history that dates back to 2008. Unlike many beauty treatments, they aren't simply a cosmetic fad. They offer a genuine alternative to invasive facelift surgeries while producing consistent and noticeable results. It's not difficult to understand their increased popularity, and Viauty can help you experience the benefits first hand.

Am I a Candidate for HIFU?

HIFU facelift treatments are suitable for anyone with facial wrinkles or signed of ageing skin. They are particularly popular with individuals that are uncomfortable with surgical treatments but are also used by others due to their speed, convenience, efficiency, and cost. 

In addition to the facial procedures mentioned above, HIFU can target the abdomen, flanks, arms, decolletage, buttocks, and thighs. While some treatments can last up to three hours, the majority of HIFU facelifts are closer to one, with some lasting just 40 minutes. Some people should avoid this treatment, though, including;

  • Pregnant and lactating women.
  • Anyone with dermal implants, or electrical or metallic devices.
  • Individuals with open wounds or lesions.
  • Sufferers of keloid scarring.

While the six-week period should produce the results you crave, some people find that they require a second appointment 6-12 months after the first session. This is, however, a rarity, making HIFU facelifts an ideal option for any candidate that meets the criteria.

The Viauty team are committed to helping you achieve the most youthful, healthy, and aesthetically beautiful skin. We can discuss HIFU facelifts and a range of other treatments to confirm suitability and decide which areas require the most significant work.

What Are The Benefits Of HIFU Facelifts Over Alternative Treatments?

Cosmetic skin tightening isn't a decision that should be taken lightly, especially when dealing with the face. In addition to HIFU, you may want to consider traditional facelift treatments simply because you are more familiar with them. In reality, though, the HIFU route is far more beneficial. Some of the reasons are;

  • It's up to seven times cheaper than surgical facelifts,
  • Viauty can remove delays in treatments,
  • The procedure is less daunting and stressful,
  • Treatments can be built with specific goals in mind,
  • The processes re incredibly precise thanks to 3D Ultimate,
  • Avoid dangers linked to anaesthesia,
  • Cause no damage to healthy cells,
  • Ensure side effects are limited to swelling and bruising,
  • Complete the process in far less time, one sitting.

Ultherapy is another noninvasive treatment that can be considered. However, it is potentially a little more risky, which is why only medical experts can use it. With 3D Ultimate-inspired HIFU facelifts, the ability to choose a beautician supports a smoother and more affordable solution in comfortable surroundings. If that sounds right for you, call Viauty today.

Ultherapy vs. High Intensity Focused Ultrasound

Both Ultherapy and HIFU are non invasive procedures that utilise high intensity frequencies from ultrasound technology devices. They stimulate collagen production, firm your skin, increase elasticity, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

However, there are a few nuances that differentiate the treatments.

Ultherapy is usually only performed by doctors because the treatment has to meet higher medical requirements. In fact, in countries like Singapore, doctors have to meet standards put in place by the country’s Health and Science Authority.

This guarantees the safety of all patients.

HIFU treatments, on the other hand, can be carried out by either beauticians or doctors. Having said that, any treatment that involves high intensity focused ultrasound must be performed by either a doctor or well-trained therapist who has excellent anatomical understanding of the body.

Overall, the effectiveness of high intensity focused ultrasound in body sculpting has been proven in multiple scientific reports. One study is titled, “High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound for the Treatment of Wrinkles and Skin Laxity in Seven Different Facial Areas” published in the Annals of Dermatology. The study showed how HIFU treated skin laxity and wrinkles with minimal side effects.

All things considered, HIFU therapy stands out among the best non-surgical fat removal procedures.

How Do You Get Rid of the Last Belly Fat?

In the process of body sculpting and body contouring, one of the difficult areas to lose weight is the lower abdomen.

Here is how 3D-HIFU achieves that.

3D-HIFU distributes precise ultrasound energy to the subcutaneous layer of your skin, increasing the temperature to at most 70 degrees Celsius. This dissipates fat. The treatment also tones your skin, tightening it to prevent unwanted sagging.

While the therapy does help with body sculpting, it’s not a weight-loss treatment. It’s only effective if you have a stable weight and eat healthy. However, it is an efficient treatment when you want to get rid of stubborn lower belly fat.

You can expect to see results within a fortnight from the initial treatment. As time goes on, the treatment will continue to take effect. The results can be seen even a year or two after the first treatment.

Considering that ultrasound treatments are among the safest in the medical field, this treatment can be used across many demographics.

You may experience tenderness, a tingling sensation, numbness, slight bruising, or swelling. All these disappear within hours of the procedure. For most people, the discomfort of the HIFU treatment only lasts as long as the procedure is ongoing.

To top it all, you do not need any downtime after treatment, so you can easily go back to your daily routine.

Lack of downtime is particularly beneficial for those in time-consuming occupations like managerial roles. You can easily schedule a session within your day as you continue with other responsibilities.

Besides, the procedure is valuable for professionals who are always in the public eye. Hardly anyone will notice that you’ve gone through HIFU therapy.

That’s why a number of celebrities opt for HIFU therapy.

We serve clients of all ages, genders and social classes in Chelsea, Brompton, Holland Park, Ladbroke Grove, Kensington, Earl’s Court, South Kensington, West Brompton, Notting Hill, North Kensington, Kensington High Street, and all over the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
