HIFU Body Tightening
For us at Clever Contours, we believe that HIFU truly is the best non surgical procedure on the market. This technology breakthrough in anti-ageing and skin tightening is the only FDA approved treatment with the specific intention of tightening loose skin and toning.
HIFU for the body works slightly different from the face as the depth for the facelift is for tightening and collagen stimulation. For the body, it is for fat reduction and tightening. We use a combination of 6mm, 10mm & 13mm depth. The high frequency of ultrasound heats below the surface of the skin, effectively destroying the fat cells and tightening the skin in the area. These damaged cells are then flushed away through a natural removal process through the lymphatic drainage system over 3 months.
The Science behind it..
The high frequency of the ultrasound results in the rapid heating of the area 13mm below the skin leaving the surface totally unaffected. This energy increases in temperature as it gets deeper below the outer skin due to the energy of the HIFU, which then causes cellular friction. This fat cells are then exposed to the high temperature causing rapid cell death (necrosis).
We currently treat the outer thighs, upper legs, tummy, flanks and arms with our HIFU Advanced Body Treatment.
State of the Art Technology
Our HIFU machine differs from most being used within salons currently. Our machine shoots 11 lines as opposed to the one. This means that the targeted areas receive a more focussed level of ultrasound and we can ensure that the face or body has the optimum level of shots in the correct order. This also means that you receive more shots of Ultrasound in less time. For a 3D HIFU machine the average amount of lines shot for a Full Face Lift is around 730-750 and takes around 90 minutes as opposed to 450 lines using the 2D machine. It is important to choose the right clinic based on the quality of their equipment before handing your body over!
