MED: HIFU Body

HIFU Body treatments are the latest in non-invasive technology to target specific focused areas of fat and loose skin in the quickest way possible.

MED: HIFU Body is very effective for tightening the skin and offering a small amount of fat reduction. HIFU Body is the latest technology to target a fat and tighten the skin. It works by firing focused ultrasound energy into the skin that destroys fat cells and tightens the skin at the SMAS layer. This is the muscle layer of the skin and the same layer targeted during surgery. The heat caused from the treatment effectively destroys the fat cells and tightens the surface of the skin.

HIFU Body is very effective for tightening loose sagging skin on the stomach, arms and legs.

HIFU Science

HIFU creates a focal point of energy exposing adipocytes at 13mm or 7mm to temperatures of 60-65ºC. Exposing the fat cell to these high temperatures for just one second causes rapid cell death by coagulative necrosis. The fat cells are unable to reproduce themselves and are naturally passed out through the body.

Recommended HIFU Body Clients

HIFU Body is recommended for clients who have loose skin and a smaller pocket of fat that cannot be treated with MED: Cryolipolysis. This is because Cryolipolysis is more effective for larger areas of fat as these treatments are clinically proven to work more effectively in these body shapes. The treatment is used more for skin tightening and therefore clients who have loose skin will see better results.

HIFU is ideal for body contouring post pregnancy tummy, abdomen fat, bingo wings, thighs and under the buttocks; for a non-surgical bum lifting effect. It can even tighten the skin on the knees and arms, helping to improve the ‘crepey’ look. HIFU is a very effective treatment for both inch loss and fat loss – at the same time tightening the skin!

more information

MED: HIFU Ultra treatments are based on hyperthermia lifting theory. The HIFU transducer irradiates 65-75Cº of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy into the skin, this then creates thermal coagulation on the target layers of skin tissue with no damage on the skin surface. Following the initial treatment, the skin starts to undergo wound healing process that simulates collagen synthesis and regeneration. Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other cosmetic procedures, HIFU bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths within the skin at the desired temperature. This HIFU energy triggers a natural response under the skin, causing the body to enter into the regenerative process, resulting in the production of new collagen.

An immediate effect can be seen following HIFU treatment, with clients facial contours, skin tone and texture, and wrinkles showing improvement within 8 weeks post-treatment. The effects of HIFU treatment continues to work for up to 6 months as the collagen fibres reorganises and restructure themselves. Clients will notice further improvements, such as skin firming and tightening over the 3 – 6 month period. Results from one treatment will last between 12 - 36 months depending on client’s current skin laxity and age. Our aesthetic practitioner will go through this during the consultation and design a treatment plan design around your own individual goals and needs.

HIFU Results
Clients will see a 20% result immediately with the remaining 80% appearing over the next 2-3 months. In the majority of cases only one treatment per year will be needed, however, if you feel you would like more further treatments, this can be done at 6 monthly intervals. Generally, only one or two sessions are required. Benefits from HIFU treatment can be seen within 4 weeks, with further gains being reported for up to six months*

FAQS

  • HIFU Treatment Side Effects?

    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.

  • Do Men Have The HIFU Treatment?

    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.

  • 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.

  • How Painful Is HIFU?

    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.

  • How Many HIFU Treatments Are Needed?

    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.

  • Treatment Areas For HIFU?

    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.

  • What Does HIFU Feel Like?

    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.

  • What To Expect After The HIFU Treatment?

    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.

  • When Will I See Results From HIFU?

    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.

Client Story

The best clinic I have ever been too! I’ve been to many different clinics in the past, however, the care, advice and results from this place has to be one of the best. I was looking todo some body confidence treatments as I felt I needed my jowls and face lifting and after attending different...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Carleigh Knox

I’ve had 2 treatments and both have been amazing. I had the 360 Fat Freezing treatment on my legs followed by the shockwave treatment. The fat freeze helped get rid of all the stubborn fat and the shockwave was great at breaking down my cellulite. Very knowledgeable, honest and caring clinic.

Jill Evans

Amazing clinic and great staff. I really cannot fault the care and support I had throughout my MED: HIFU Ultra treatment. They are honest from the beginning and don’t force you into anything. The pricing is very good and in my opinion they don’t charge enough for the treatments. I have since signed up as a member to benefit from monthly treatments.

Maria Sutton

A huge thanks to Ryan for today at RT Aesthetics for my fat freezing procedure. I was a bit nervous but more because I needed to get down to my underwear in front of you. You made me feel really comfortable and at ease. Everything was fully explained to me and I’am excited for the results.

Harriet Brown

After learning lots about fat freezing during the consultation and reading lots online I booked in for treatment. I have seen such a big difference around my love handles and stomach area. The aftercare was great, you get a diet plan, email, follow up appointments and if I needed anything they were there for me.

Anthony McGill

I had the 360 fat freezing treatment in September and since had 1 more treatment on my love handles. The treatment has worked well and I’ve been more then happy with my results (better than I imagined). The clinic is extremely caring and attentive and I’ve really enjoyed my experience

Elizabeth Major

On the day I received treatment Ryan was so attentive and made sure I was comfortable from the outset. I had the cryolypolosis (fat freezing) treatment on my stomach and love handles and have seen such amazing results after only two weeks, even though as standard it is supposed to take up to six weeks for results to show.

Robyn Hayes

I’ve been to a few clinics this year and I had the HIFU somewhere else and it didn’t work so I was worried to try again with RT Aesthetics. I shouldn’t of been! The results I’ve had from the full face and neck MED: HIFU Ultra has made such a big difference. My jowls have tightened, my skin looks better and the care throughout was great.

Sharna Jackson

Very professional service throughout my consultation and first 360 fat freezing treatment. I just sat and watched Netflix with a cup of tea and a glass of water. They even have iPads and music depending on what you’d like todo but I enjoyed watching Netflix. Results so far have been great and can only get better. All together it’s been a lovely experience

Rachel Moriarty

I could not be happier with RT Aesthetics. Ryan made me feel at ease from the minute we met. I suffer really badly with anxiety and body dysmorphia so this was a very big deal for me. The attention he pays to detail and his knowledge of procedures is out of this world, he’s a very intelligent and talented individual. There is literally nothing to worry about!
