The latest generation of focused ultrasound
This new rejuvenation treatment firms and redefines the oval of the face and corrects sagging skin without surgery. This micro focused ultrasound technique is the only non-invasive, non-surgical FDA approved procedure to tighten the skin of the chin, neck, eyelids and eyebrows and the body.
To treat sagging skin, especially around the oval of the face, this is called a medical facelift. HIFU are indicated to perform a full face and neck lift, for dark circles and crow's feet, for the upper lip, eyebrows and upper eyelids, and for the décolleté.
Course of the session
The practitioner will first examine you to find out more about your motivations and the care best suited to your needs. An ultrasound gel will then be applied so that the ultrasound penetrates the skin well. The device will then send impacts at different depths in order to stimulate the skin according to your needs.
A session lasts approximately 30 to 90 minutes depending on the area to be treated (40 to 60 minutes for the face, 40 to 90 minutes for the body). Normally only one session is needed to treat an area, but it may be that in the case of significant skin slackening or a large fat mass that the patient will need a second session, which will take place a few months later (6 weeks later for the face).
The consequences of focused ultrasound
The session is painless, you may feel a slight tingling but nothing painful. When you leave the clinic, your skin will be slightly pinkish but you will not have any bruising or swelling. You will also be able to apply make-up on your face without any problem as soon as you leave the clinic and resume your usual activities.
The anti-slackening effect reaches its peak after 3 months after the last session.
The results are not directly visible with HIFU. You may see a slight improvement as soon as you leave the clinic, the results will be visible from the 2nd or 3rd month and last about 2 years.
Only 10% of the results are obtained as soon as you leave the clinic, and that improvement comes gradually after the 2nd month, because your body will need time to produce the "new collagen" responsible for firming the skin.
It takes a while before the results are visible because in the case of cellulite treatment, even though the cells will be directly eliminated, your body must eliminate them naturally. It will take 2 sessions. The effects will be visible after 6 months.
Micro-thermal effect of ultrasound
Focused ultrasound penetrates to a depth of 1.5, 2, 3 and 4.5 millimeters.
The HIFU penetrates the different layers of the epidermis and dermis at precise depths down to the fibrous layer that binds the skin muscles called the Superficial Musculo Aponeurotic System (SMAS), where the HIFU will provoke electrocoagulation as in a facelift.
After a few weeks, the result is a re-draping of the skin caused by the production of new collagen (neocollagenesis) and the retraction of skin tissue in contact with the SMAS, hence the lifting effect.
This treatment is contraindicated in case of skin lesions and in case of pregnancy. No botox for 1 year, no hyaluronic acid 2 weeks before or after. If you have a progressive skin infection (herpes, inflammatory dermatosis, local bacterial infection) or an open wound. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

HIFU is the first high intensity focused ultrasound device that treats the face, neck and body non-invasively and painlessly. It has a triple action: firming the skin, smoothing wrinkles and destroying fat cells.
Non-surgical face lift. It works by providing focused ultrasound energy at precise depths and temperatures to initiate neocollagenesis, but without disturbing the skin surface, which means it is completely non-invasive. This energy initiates the collagen building process to replace old aging collagen with new fresh collagen. This new collagen acts to lift and firm the skin with natural and remarkable results.
Focused Ultrasound Inducing coagulation points, beyond the hypodermis, just before the muscle.raises the sagging of the upper eyelids. Opens the eyes (medicalized program).
At the body level, HIFU is used to treat sagging skin on the arms, thighs and belly, but also to eliminate fat cells and cellulite. It is a complete treatment to eliminate fat cells, we will both eliminate the fat and act on the skin to tone it. This technology therefore avoids the "empty balloon" sensation," she continues, "which could result in empty, sagging skin after removing the fat from the inside.
Act at all levels for a complete treatment.
Firm the inner face of the arms.
Firm the skin above the knee and inside the thighs.
Redesign the belly.
To refine the silhouette, ultrasounds can be combined with EXIMIA PLATINUM.
How does it work?
HIFU delivers energy in the form of heat (75 to 80°C) to different levels of the skin to significantly stimulate collagen production. Collagen is responsible for the appearance of our skin and its production acts directly on the elasticity of the skin, preventing it from sagging.
Depending on the depth of the focused ultrasounds used, they will act at different levels and produce different results.
The deepest ones, 13 mm deep, will destroy localized fat cells, whether they are on the body or face (thighs, double chin) .
On the other hand, the shallower ones (1.5 mm) will act on the superficial dermis and epidermis to treat dilated pores and fine lines.
Always start with the cartridge that works the deepest. For example, on a face, if the patient has an excess of fat (e.g. jowls or a double chin), the practitioner will first use the 4.5 mm cartridge for a lipolysis effect and then the 3.0 mm, 2.0 mm and 1.5 mm cartridges to treat tissue ptosis and smooth out wrinkles.
Macro-thermal effect of ultrasound
Focused ultrasound penetrates to a depth of 6, 9 and 13 millimeters.
HIFU damages fat membranes, composed of triglycerides, which are then transported to the liver through the vascular and lymphatic systems. This process is made possible by the body's natural metabolism, as the liver does not distinguish between fat from the action of HIFU and fat from food consumption.
This fairly recent treatment is intended to fight against sagging facial skin. It uses high intensity focused ultrasound or HIFU.
It is a very safe technique, the subject of numerous scientific publications, approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the USA and whose effectiveness is recognized worldwide.
NB This technique does not give any volume to the face, it only tensions the slackened tissues.
