How does HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) work?
The Ultraformer 3, by Classys, is a new, medical grade machine that tightens and lifts saggy skin on the face and gives contouring and definition when used on the body. It is a non-invasive treatment with no downtime required. Focused Ultrasound is converted into heat and targets specific skin depths to create a controlled trauma. It also hits the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) layer and creates an immediate and lasting contraction which can be seen to lift the neck and jawline. The traumatized dermis will begin to repair itself and produce new collagen to give a youthful and plumper looking skin. Radio Frequency uses the body’s natural healing process to lift, tone and tighten loose skin. The treatment is natural with no down time and delivers noticeable results. When used on the body, 3 to 5 treatments are required. The HIFU causes fat cell death, (Apoptosis) allowing us to sculpt the body as well as treat loose skin over the knees and on the arms. This is a truly remarkable treatment.

What is HIFU
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. We are able to target 5 depths to create an organised trauma to the skin and the body.
Can 3D replace a surgical facelift? There is also the positive of no downtime to the procedure.
No, HIFU is not an alternative to surgery but going under the knife if is not for everyone and the HIFU definitely puts surgery off for many years.
What Will I Feel During the treatment?
The treatment does not require anaesthesia. Most of the clients consider the procedure slightly uncomfortable. Clients have reported that there can be some discomfort while the energy is being applied but it is short lived and a good sign that the collagen restructuring process has been started. You may also experience a little warmth during the treatment. After treatment you may feel like your face has had a good work out!
How long is each treatment?
We offer bespoke packages depending on your age, skin laxity, and where about you require treatment. No 2 people are the same and so you would require a face to face consult to determine your needs.
