WHAT IS 3D HIFU TREATMENT?
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.
- 5mm dermal layer targeting – focuses on pore size and appearance, skin texture and tone as well as fine lines.
- 3mm subcutaneous layer targeting – focuses on contouring and slimming, especially around the chin and jaw line.
- 5mm superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer targeting – also called a non surgical facelift, this treatment protocol focuses on tightening and firming to lift sagging skin and provide a more youthful appearance.

- Stimulates your body’s natural collagen production
- Non-invasive, no cuts or damage to the skin
- No downtime or recovery time
- Noticeable results
