Frequently Asked Questions

 

1. What is High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)?

New generation HIFU machine designed to drastically reduce the pain and risk involved in the older generation HIFU machines. Fitted with the latest technology and producing ultrasound at macro focused spots, Ulfit by Cluederm gives you a comfortable non-surgical tummy tuck and face lift.
Ultimately, it activates the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.

 

2. What is unique about this procedure?

HIFU is the only non-invasive treatment that can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin that is addressed in cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

 

3. What kind of technology does HIFU use?

HIFU uses tried-and-true ultrasound technology, which has received FDA clearance for use in this new type of medical procedure.

 

4. What does collagen do? How does HIFU stimulate the creation of collagen?

Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed, toned and elastic. As we age, collagen loses its elasticity and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. HIFU jump starts a repair process that produces fresh, new collagen.

 

5. Is HIFU surgery?

No. Unlike a face lift, HIFU is a non-invasive procedure that addresses the skin and support layers below it, but doesn’t entail cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

 

6. Can HIFU replace a face lift procedure?

HIFU Therapy treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but will not duplicate the results of a facelift. However it is a great alternative, especially for those not ready for surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery. It is well suited to individual who are starting to develop mild facial laxity and will like to reverse the ageing process. As Ulfit Hifu is extremely comfortable, it is a great alternative to other invasive procedure.

 

7. How long will a treatment take?

The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated as well as your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes whereas a chest treatment on its own takes approximately 30 minutes.

 

8. How many HIFU treatments will I need?

The number of treatments depends on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process. Some clients may benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help clients keep pace with the body’s natural aging process.

 

9. Am I a good candidate for HIFU?

A good HIFU candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the rack, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest. The best way to find out if you are a suitable candidate is to make an appointment with us and consult with our doctor.

 

10. Is HIFU safe?

The HIFU procedure has been used safely in over 250,000 treatments worldwide. Ultrasound energy itself has been used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years.

 

11. Will there be any side effects?

The skin might appear flushed for the first few hours. Some clients also experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are temporary. Other less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any cosmetic procedure, there is the possibility of other rare effects but they are transient and mild with the newer generation HIFU.

 

12. How long does it take to see results and how long will it last?

After your HIFU treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. As new collagen is produced, your face will appear firmer, more lifted and winkles less apparent.
