HIFU Treatment Sunderland.

RT Aesthetics offers advanced MED: HIFU Ultra treatments at our Newcastle clinic near Sunderland city centre.

HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, it is the latest non-surgical, non-invasive clinically proven technology, for lifting and tightening the face, neck, décolletage and other areas of the body. It works by naturally stimulating the production of new collagen for a natural, textured and younger looking appearance.*

HIFU uses focused ultrasound energy to target the layers of skin just below the surface. The ultrasound energy causes the tissue to heat up rapidly. Once the cells in the targeted area reach a certain temperature, they experience cellular damage. This stimulates the cells to produce more collagen. The increase in collagen results in tighter, firmer skin with fewer wrinkles. Since the high-frequency ultrasound beams are focused on a specific tissue site below the skin’s surface, there’s no damage to the upper layers of the skin and adjacent issue.

MED: HIFU Ultra are only used by approved medical clinics like ours – so you know you’ve got the best care with RT Aesthetics.

Non Surgical Facelift Sunderland

HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) treatment also known as Ultherapy® has become one of the most sought-after lifting treatments for face, neck & body, without going under the knife. HIFU is able to reach deep layers of the skin tissues that other anti-ageing treatments cannot affect. This makes HIFU treatment in Sunderland is a very popular alternative to surgery or more invasive treatments such as thread lifts or injectable toxins and fillers. HIFU treatment can lift and tighten the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) layer of the skin. The SMAS layer is same layer targeted during conventional surgery.

Ultrasound Energy

MED: HIFU Ultra uses ultrasound energy to tighten and lift the skin. Ultrasound energy has a proven track record in the field of medicine for over 50 years and achieves a staggering 20 – 25% instant result on average, with optimum results seen at around 3 months post-procedure. Many clients see results from just on treatment, although some clients may require two treatments dependent on varying factors. Top up treatments are recommended every 12 – 18 months to keep long-lasting results.

HIFU is considered a safe, effective, and non-invasive procedure for tightening the facial skin. Its advantages over a surgical face lift are hard to deny. There are no incisions, no scarring, and no required rest or recovery time. HIFU is also far less expensive than a surgical facelift procedure.

Read our frequently asked questions regarding MED: HIFU Ultra
How does HIFU treatment work?
MED: HIFU Ultra (high intensity focused ultrasound) energy is beamed below the skin in 3 different layers. HIFU effects three layers of the superficial and dermis along with SMAS, which is the same layer of tissue that surgeons pull tight in a face lift. As a thermal energy safely heats this tissue, the skin contracts resulting in tightening of the skin and formation of new collagen, which provides a longer-term tightening effect.
Clients may develop redness, swelling or tingling of the face following from the HIFU facial treatment. These symptoms are not permanent and will usually fade within hours after treatment. RT Aesthetics do provide a cream prior to you leaving the clinic, this helps settle the skin and is available for you to buy to take home and use. During this time the effects of the MED: HIFU Ultra treatment will signal the production of new collagen and the process of regeneration. MED: HIFU Ultra skin tightening treatment are clinically proven to be safe and effective, with natural and gradual rejuvenation effects.
Many clients only need one treatment of MED: HIFU Ultra. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the clients collagen-building process, some clients benefit from additional treatment after 8 – 12 weeks. Results from HIFU treatment can be seen within 12 weeks, with further results being reported for up to 6 months after the initial procedure. Clients who have undergone HIFU treatment can benefit from long lasting results in excess of 2 – 3 years*. Although, as the skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments may be taken by the client yearly, this can help clients keep pace with the body’s natural ageing process.
MED: HIFU Ultra procedures treats the deep foundational layer that is addressed during cosmetic surgery, but will not duplicate results of a facelift. MED: HIFU Ultra is a great alternative to having surgery and is one the last procedures you can have before looking to have surgery to treat a problem area. However, many clients do not want to have surgery, or for those clients that want to extend the effects of pre/post cosmetic surgery, then HIFU treatment may be an option for you.
Certificated by the FDA and CE cleared for eyebrow lifting this high-intensity focused ultrasosund (HIFU) device also achieve excellent aesthetic outcomes in jowl lifting, nasolabial fold reduction, periobital wrinkle reduction and overall skin tightening and rejuvenation in targeted areas. Ultra therapy has been used safely in over 1,000,000 treatments worldwide.
After your MED: HIFU Ultra treatment, many clients see some initial results, such as toning and feel tight around the face and neck straight after the treatment. However, the results take place over 3 – 6 months, as your body naturally starts the production of collagen and regenerates the skin tissue. As the production of new collagen begins, how long the results last really depends on the clients’ own natural ageing process. The MED: HIFU Ultra treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but the natural ageing process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the inside. Results can list for up to 2 – 3 years, however, clients that look after their skin can look forward to long-lasting effects from just one treatment.
The HIFU treatment is not a painful procedure. As the high-intensity focused ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths within the skin. This is an indication that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Most clients describe feeling either pin pricks sensation or a feeling of heat. Comfort levels vary from client to client, however, this sensation is only temporary and last while the ultrasound energy is administered. Some clients take paracetamol before the procedure to ease any discomfort., although this is not necessary.
The MED: HIFU Ultra facelift treatment is perfect for treating and targeting signs of ageing around the eyes, mouth and neck. HIFU treatment can also target the neck, jawline and décolletage. This helps to reduce signs of double chins, sagging neck and jawlines, resulting in a tighter, firmer and more defined neck and jawline. HIFU treatment can treat the following areas: Forehead, Frown Lines, Eyebrows, Crow’s Feet, Cheeks, Double Chins, Sagging Neck, Jowls, Décolletage and Face.
Men are very good candidates for the MED: HIFU Ultra Facelift treatment since there is no recovery time needed, allowing men to immediately return to their daily activities. The MED: HIFU Ultra treatment is great for both men and women. We see many men at our clinic who opt to have the HIFU treatment to help lift jowls, tighten skin and help turn back the years.
After the MED: HIFU Ultra treatment the skin may appear ‘flushed’ at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours post-treatment. Some clients experience light swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, however, these are temporary and will fade within 7 – 10 days post-treatment. Less common side effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical or cosmetic procedure, there are the possibility for rarer side effects, which your aesthetic practitioner will review with you during your face-to-face consultation.
The MED: HIFU Ultra treatment is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure with no downtime, allowing clients to resume daily activities immediately after treatment. The MED: HIFU Ultra discomfort levels vary from client to client, while most clients tolerating the procedure well. However, clients who have a lower pain threshold can take paracetamol to help ease any discomfort. Any pain or discomfort associated with the MED: HIFU Ultra treatment are only temporary and will only last during the procedure.
