HIFU Aphrodite Face Lift is an ultrasound device that is used to tighten and lift skin. HIFU Aphrodite Face Lift is not equivalent to a surgical facelift but there are significant advantages which are:- no downtime, no scarring or bruising, no pain and the results are natural.
HIFU Aphrodite Face Lift is a face-lifting and neck tightening technology that is revolutionary because of its use of focused ultrasound that creates ridiculously high amounts of heat in tiny little spots underneath the SMAS and deep subcutaneous tissue. A line of these spots will create a vector of pull or lift. The ultrasound energy stimulates the body’s natural healing response and causes collagen production which creates a tightening effect.
It is not an overnight process but requires time for full results to be visible. Everyone is a little different with how quickly they respond to the procedure. It typically takes up to 3 months to see the full results of a HIFU Aphrodite Face Lift treatment. Some people notice some changes pretty quickly which continue to improve for the first three months, but others will have a more gradual improvement.
Is it painful?
When delivering this energy, patients may feel some discomfort. Pain during a HIFU Aphrodite Face Lift treatment varies greatly depending on the individual and their pain tolerance level. Many patients find HIFU Aphrodite Face Lift pain-free. Some patients have a low tolerance and experience more discomfort. Finally, although you can certainly feel the treatment, the discomfort is for the most part completely gone immediately after the area is treated.
Where can it be used?
It is used mainly on the face – the jawline, neck and upper face. The best patients have mild to moderate sagging of the facial tissues and do not wish to undergo surgery. These patients will often be highly satisfied with the results.
How many treatments?
HIFU Aphrodite Face Lift typically is a one-time treatment. It is difficult to say the exact length of time a HIFU procedure will last. Results of 1-2 years are now being seen.
How does it work?
The HIFU Aphrodite Face Lift utilities the body’s own natural wound healing processes to lift, tone and tighten loose or wrinkled skin by encouraging the growth and formation of new collagen at all three different skin layer depths (4.5mm, 3.0mm and 1.5mm). It does this with the use of highly focused acoustic energy to create thermal coagulation at each depth. This includes all support layers of the skin (dermis, epidermis, superficial dermis, deep dermis and even the SMAS).
The very deepest support layers of the skin operated on by cosmetic surgeons when performing a surgical facelift are stimulated. Within the weeks that follow treatment, the treated area will appear lifted, firmer and toned while fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced.
What results will I see?
A noticeable improvement in the clients facial contouring and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles become apparent after around 4-6 weeks while further improvement in the skin’s elasticity and plumpness has been reported to continue up to as much as 6 months later as the collagen continues to reform after the initial treatment. No downtime is associated with a HIFU Aphrodite Face Lift treatment so clients can resume their normal everyday activities immediately after treatment.
This non-invasive facelift is the perfect solution for brow lifting, jowl line lifting, nasolabial fold reduction, periorbital wrinkle reduction and skin tightening and rejuvenation in general.
