HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a technology that stimulates your body’s natural healing and collagen production for natural looking results. 3D HIFU can target multiple concerns with precise targeting.
Depending on your concern and areas to be treated, 3D HIFU treatments take between 15 and 90 minutes.
There is no downtime after treatment, you can return to normal activities and drive yourself to and from your treatment appointment. For tightening and lifting treatments you may experience temporary numbness and redness immediately after treatment.
You will see a noticeable change in the treated area immediately after treatment. This will improve in the coming 3-6 months as your body produces collagen and elastin in the treated area.
