MED: HIFU Ultra+ Newcastle

HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) treatment has become one of the most sought-after lifting treatments for the face, neck & body without going under the knife.

MED: HIFU Ultra+ is the latest non-surgical technology using High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and Micro-Macro Focused Ultrasound (MMFU) to deliver a non-invasive face, neck and body lifting treatment. MED: HIFU Ultra is good for skin tightening and lifting; it also helps with lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, skin tone and laxity. Just one session can tighten and lift the skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin tone, providing visible results that will last up to 3 years.

The technology is unique in penetrating the dermis and the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer, which is deeper than all other non-invasive treatments. ​​The SMAS layer is the same area tightened during conventional surgery; however, unlike surgery, HIFU is more affordable and requires no downtime.

MED: HIFU Ultra+ at our Newcastle Clinic results are 92% more effective with an increased rate of 97% client satisfaction, and all have their own serial number for safety. The new MF2 cartridge allows our aestheticians to treat difficult-to-reach areas, such as around the eyes, which cannot be treated effectively with generic HIFU Ultra

MED: HIFU Ultra+ is ONLY used by approved medical clinics like ours – so you know you’ve got the best care with RT Aesthetics. This differs from the standard HIFU Ultra, which is 70% less powerful and effective but can be accessed from non-medical beauty salons – we are a medical-led clinic.

HIFU Ultra+ With MFU Treatment

MED: HIFU Ultra+ is medical grade and has proven success across the UK. Results last between 18 months and 3 years, which is great and a lot more effective than standard. HIFU treatment is a highly precise medical procedure using high-intensity focused ultrasound. The latest model we have introduced to our clinic includes MFU technology. The MFU method is sharply focused, whereas standard HIFU technology applies multiple beams that can also hit bone and fat tissue. MFU technology allows more energy to penetrate the skin, offering better tightening effects and overall results. With advanced sensors and ultrasound map scanning, we can produce better results with less discomfort and side effects.

HIFU was first developed and widespread for the treatment of prostate cancer. Scientists saw that the men’s genitals were starting to firm & tighten. This was then developed into tightening and lifting the face, neck and décolletage. HIFU was approved to lift skin on the neck, jowls, eyebrow, chin, and décolletage and was proven to improve lines and wrinkles in 2009 and 2012.

HIFU individually targets face, brow, jowl and neck lifting, as well as overall skin tightening, rejuvenation and deeper fat cells. The technology is unique in its ability to penetrate the dermis and the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer, which is deeper than all other non-invasive treatments. The SMAS layer is the same area tightened during conventional surgery, however, unlike surgery, HIFU is more affordable and requires no downtime.

HIFU fires ultrasound waves that cause micro injuries deep under the surface of the skin. This results in an increased production of collagen and leads to firmer and tighter skin. HIFU treatment for the body uses deeper levels of HIFU, effectively breaking down the fat cells whilst also firming & tightening the skin. HIFU face-lifting can be used for blurred jawlines, nasal folds, sagging eyelids, loose neck folds, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone or texture and large pores. RT Aesthetics HIFU machines have many different cartridges that can treat various problem areas at the same time.

HIFU Science

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 a 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 to 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 continue to work for up to 6 months as the collagen fibres reorganise 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 the client’s current skin laxity and age. Our aesthetic practitioner will go through this during the consultation and design a treatment plan around your own individual goals and needs.

Our Care.

Prior to your MED: HIFU Ultra+ treatment there are a number of steps you can take to ensure the best possible results following your treatment. This includes the following:

  • Increase water intake (aim for 2 - 3 litres per day)
  • Avoid other anti-ageing treatments 4 weeks prior to treatment
  • Avoid any facial peels, exfoliation or microdermabrasion 2 weeks before treatment
  • It’s recommended that male clients come to their appointment clean shaven
  • We cannot provide the treatment if you have previously had threads within the last year unless it has been discussed with the aesthetic practitioner prior to treatment
  • Avoid alcohol consumption for a minumum of 48 hours prior to your appointment
  • Avoid IPL / laser treatments in the area that you wish to have treated 2 weeks prior to your appointment
  • Avoid sun-beds or direct UV exposure for a minimum of 1 week prior to your appointment
  • If you have any open sores, infection or skin sensitivity in the area, we cannot treat it unless discussed with the aesthetic practitioner prior to treatment
  • If you have a history of cold sores, consider beginning prophylactic treatment no later than the day of treatment
  • We would recommend that you take some painkillers before your appointment as this can help reduce any pain from the treatment - we recommend Paracetamol and we advise you take this 1 hour before your HIFU appointment

In order to achieve optimum results from your MED: HIFU Ultra+ treatment, we strongly recommend the following:

  • Avoid alcohol consumption for a minimum of 48 hours
  • Avoid hot water, heat treatments (saunas, steam rooms, etc) or extreme cold for 24 hours
  • Drink 2 – 3 litres of water daily, keep a large bottle with you at all times and infuse with lemons and limes for flavour - this will help hydrate the skin and flush out toxins
  • Avoid sun-beds or direct UV exposure for a minimum of 1 week and apply SPF daily to protect the skin
  • RT Aesthetics has a range of different skincare to help after your treatment: the skincare should be used after your treatment daily and the directions on how to use each product can be found on the packaging
  • Skin may feel dry after treatment, so you should apply a replenishing/hydrating mask three times a week or apply hyaluronic acid daily
  • Do not take aspirin or other anticoagulant medications as this can hinder the healing process
  • Normal cleansing regimes can be resumed after 24 hours, although avoid using scented or fragranced products around the treatment area unless you are using the skincare given to you at the clinic
  • Allow 2 weeks before continuing any laser/IPL treatments in the area that you had treated

FAQs.

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 affects three layers of the superficial and dermis along with SMAS, which is the same layer of tissue that surgeons pull tight in a facelift. As thermal energy safely heats this tissue, the skin contracts resulting in tightening of the skin and the formation of new collagen, which provides a longer-term tightening effect.

  • What to expect after the HIFU treatment?

    Clients may develop redness, swelling or tingling of the face following the HIFU facial treatment. These symptoms are not permanent and will usually fade within hours after treatment. RT Aesthetics can provide a cream prior to you leaving the clinic, which helps settle the skin and is available for you to buy to take home. 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 treatments are clinically proven to be safe and effective, with natural and gradual rejuvenation effects.

  • 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 client’s 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.

  • Is HIFU like a facelift?

    MED: HIFU Ultra+ procedures treat the deep foundational layer that is addressed during cosmetic surgery but will not duplicate the 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, for the many clients who do not want to have surgery, or for those clients that want to extend the effects of pre/post cosmetic surgery, HIFU treatment may be an option for you.

  • Is HIFU treatment safe?

    Certificated by the FDA and CE cleared for eyebrow lifting, this high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) device also achieves excellent aesthetic outcomes in jowl lifting, nasolabial fold reduction, periorbital wrinkle reduction and overall skin tightening and rejuvenation in targeted areas. Ultra therapy has been used safely in over 1,000,000 treatments worldwide.

  • When will I see results from HIFU?

    After your MED: HIFU Ultra+ treatment, many clients see some initial results, such as toning and feeling tight around the face and neck straight after the treatment. However, 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 client’s 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 outside. Results can last for up to 2 – 3 years, however, clients who look after their skin can look forward to long-lasting effects from just one treatment.

  • 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 a pin prick sensation or a feeling of heat. Comfort levels vary from client to client, however, this sensation is only temporary and lasts while the ultrasound energy is administered. Some clients take paracetamol before the procedure to ease any discomfort, although this is not necessary.

  • 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 jawline and décolletage. This helps to reduce signs of double chins, and 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.

  • Do men have HIFU treatment?

    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. As there is no recovery time needed for MED: HIFU Ultra+ Facelift treatment, people can immediately return to their daily activities.

  • HIFU treatment side effects?

    After the MED: HIFU Ultra+ treatment, the skin may initially appear ‘flushed’, 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 is the possibility of rarer side effects, which your aesthetic practitioner will review with you during your face-to-face consultation.

  • 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, with 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 is temporary and will only last during the procedure.
