HIFU is a non-surgical face and body treatment that uses ultrasound to lift and tighten a number of problem areas, including the face, under the chin, and neck. It can reduce wrinkles around the eyes, mouth and cheeks and give a natural lift to the brow. HIFU is also used for skin tightening on small problem areas of the body such as the stomach, arms and thighs. It can be done alone or combined with other treatments for optimal results.
During treatment, low amounts of Micro-Focused Ultrasound energy are delivered into precise skin depths, without damaging the surface of the skin. The MFU energy creates heat, which stimulates tissue remodelling. The result, over time, is a natural skin lifting, tightening and rejuvenation.
Our LightStim Light is multi-wave LED (amber, light red, dark red, and Infrared), providing rejuvenating wavelengths of light energy to reduce and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, restore your skin's youthful appearance and help preserve your youthful skin.
LED treatments can be used for;
reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
