To treat sagging skin, especially in the oval region of the face, this is called a medical facelift. HIFU are indicated for lifting the entire face and neck, for dark circles and crow's feet, for the upper lip, for the 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 treatment best suited to your needs. we will then apply an ultrasound gel so that the ultrasound penetrates well into the skin. The device will then send impacts at different depths, in order to stimulate the skin according to your needs.
A session lasts around 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). It normally takes only one session to treat an area, but it may be that in the case of significant sagging skin or a large fat mass the patient will need a second session, which will be performed a few months later (6 weeks later for the face).
The results are not directly visible with HIFUs. 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 for approximately 2 years.
Only 10% of the results are obtained as soon as you leave the clinic, and the 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 if the cells are directly eliminated, your body must eliminate them naturally. , It will take 2 sessions. The effects will be visible from 6 months.
How it works ?
HIFU deliver energy in the form of heat (75 to 80 ° C) at different levels of the skin to significantly stimulate the production of collagen. 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 ultrasound used, they will act at different levels and produce different results.
The deepest, 13 mm will destroy the localized fat cells, whether they are on the body or the face (thighs, double chin) ...
On the other hand, the shallowest (1.5 mm) will act on the superficial dermis and the epidermis to treat enlarged pores and mini fine lines.
We always start with the cartridge that works the deepest. For example on a face, if the patient has a fatty overload (for example jowls or a double chin), the practitioner will first implement the 4.5 mm cartridge for a lipolysis effect and then the cartridges 3.0mm, 2.0mm and 1.5mm to treat tissue ptosis and smooth wrinkles.
Macro-thermal effect of ultrasound Focused ultrasound
Penetrates to a depth of 6, 9 and 13 millimeters. HIFUs damage fat membranes, which are made up 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, since the liver does not distinguish between fat from the action of HIFU and fat from food consumption.

HIFU is the first high-intensity focused ultrasound device that treats the face, neck and body in a non-invasive and painless manner. It has a triple action: firm the skin, smooth wrinkles and destroy fat cells.
Non-surgical face lift. It works by providing focused ultrasound energy at specific depths and temperatures to initiate neocollagenesis, but without disturbing the surface of the skin, which means it is completely non-invasive. This energy initiates the process of building collagen to replace the 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. Relieves sagging upper eyelids. Open your eyes (medical program).
The consequences of focused ultrasound
The session is painless, you may experience slight tingling but nothing painful. When you leave the clinic, your skin will be slightly pink but you will have no bruising or edema. You can also apply make-up on your face without any problem as soon as you leave the clinic and thus resume the course of your usual activities. The anti-loosening effect reaches its peak after 3 months after the last session
At the body level, we use HIFU to treat sagging skin in the arms, thighs and stomach, but also to eliminate fat cells and cellulite. It is a complete treatment to eliminate fat cells, we will both eliminate fat and act on the skin to tone it. This technology therefore makes it possible to avoid the feeling of an "empty ball", she continues, which could give rise to an empty and sagging skin after having eliminated the fat from the inside. Focused ultrasound acts at all levels for complete care.
Firm the inner side of the arms.
Firm the skin above the knee and inside the thighs.
Redraw the belly.
To refine the silhouette, you can combine ultrasound with RADIO FRÉQUENCE.
Micro-thermal effect of ultrasound
Focused ultrasound penetrates to a depth of 1.5, 2, 3 and 4.5 millimeters.
The HIFUs penetrate the different layers of the epidermis and dermis at precise depth levels up to the fibrous layer which unites the skin muscles called up to the Superficial Musculo-Aponeurotic System (SMAS) at which the HIFUs will cause electrocoagulation like during a facelift.
This results in a few weeks after a re-tightening of the skin caused by the production of new collagen (neocollagenesis) and the retraction of the skin tissues on contact with SMAS, hence the lifting effect.
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. If you have braces, take coagulant medications, or have multi-complicated diabetes.
