Ultherapy HIFU Face Lifting
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is a non-surgical, no downtime, in-office procedure for lifting and tightening sagging skin of the brows, cheeks, lower face (jowls), jawline and neck. Ultrasound technology is focused below the skin surface to firm and lift droopy tissues. Results are long lasting and occur gradually but dramatically over time.
How does HIFU work?
It utilises ultrasonic energy to penetrate deep below the skin and fat layer of the face to gently but effectively target connective tissue. Connective tissue is a firm, tough layer that supports the neck and facial contours. Ageing and the passage of time cause connective tissues to droop. High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound tightens loose connective tissue, creating firmness and lifting to areas of sagging skin. The layer of tissue targeted is the same tissue that plastic surgeon’s tighten and shift during a surgical facelift or brow lift.
What is the procedure like?
Depending on the area (or areas) of treatment, it takes approximately 30 minutes to just over an hour to perform. It is helpful in addressing brow droopiness and upper eyelid hooding, lifts the jawline and improves the jowls and neck sagging. With only a single treatment, your collagen is stimulated to grow a new and results can sometimes be seen immediately. Younger patients may have a more dramatic response.
The ideal candidate is a patient with good skin elasticity in their 40s to 50s with mild to moderate skin sagging of the neck or eye area.
Patients outside this age group or with more compromised skin quality may still benefit but often require 2 or 3 treatments and should expect less dramatic outcomes.
For the treatment to fully take effect, it will occur gradually over a period of two to three months. Clinical trials reported results of tighter, firmer, more youthful looking skin in a 10-month study. These studies documented changes in appearance that were significant in most patients.
What is it?
Collagenie is a skin tightening procedure. It uses super pulsed radio frequencies to tighten, contour and stimulate lasting collagen in a non-invasive way. It is another alternative treatment that can essentially give you the appearance of a facelift, without the surgeon’s knife.
NO procedure preparation!
You can immediately return to your normal activities.
ALL skin types and colours treatable!
IMMEDIATE RESULTS can be seen after a course of treatments and then gradual tightening continues for approximately six months.
The Collagenie produces LONG LASTING RESULTS! A treatment every 6-12 months will continue to create improvement.
How does it work?
Before, and in between pulses of the radio frequencies (RF), a skin refrigerant is applied to protect the epidermis (the top layer of skin). The RF energy is then delivered using a sophisticated handpiece called a Thermatip. The Thermatip is applied to the skin through which a controlled amount of RF energy travels. The RF energy heats a large amount of collagen 4mm under the skin in the deep dermis. This heating, in turn, results in tightening and contraction of existing collagen beneath the surface of the skin and also encourages new collagen growth.
The whole procedure is very comfortable and very predictable. Occasionally clients may experience tenderness along the jawline for a day or so when treating the whole face, or redness on treated areas for a few hours. This is easily covered up, however, and there is no reason why clients can not return to normal activities immediately after treatment.

Applied to the forehead and eyebrows to lift and enhance the appearance of the eyes, thus making them look less tired, more open and alert.
Applied to the mid and lower face to decrease deep folds around the mouth, nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the bottom of the nose to the corner of the mouth), the cheeks or “jowls”, and to reduce sagginess along the jawline, under the chin and neck.
