HIFU NON-SURGICAL FACELIFT & SKIN TIGHTENING

In both of our Pêche Medispa clinics, we can provide non-surgical HIFU facelifts. Our Teneriffe clinic is home to our Ultraformer 3, while in Mooloolaba, you’ll find our ULFIT device. Both of these machines use the latest technology to deliver the gold standard in HIFU treatments.

Both systems deliver High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), calculated with geometric precision to target multiple layers of the skin. The macro and micro focussed bursts of ultrasound energy stimulate collagen and elastin production and promote skin rejuvenation, resulting in tauter, firmer skin and face lifting.

HIFU therapy is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment for the face that counteracts the effects of time and gravity. Applications include:

  • Forehead
  • Eyes
  • Cheeks
  • Jawline
  • Double Chin
  • Neck

Both the ULFIT and Ultraformer 3 devices successfully treat skin laxity on the face and promote a naturally younger, smoother and firmer looking appearance.

HIFU BODY SCULPTING & SKIN TIGHTENING

Outstanding results are not limited to the face and neck with the Ultraformer 3 and ULFIT devices. Through deep penetration with 6, 9 and 13 mm cartridges and a variable frequency, we adapt these HIFU machines to target stubborn fat, creating the body you desire.

Redefine these areas of the body with HIFU treatments:

  • Décolletage
  • Arms
  • Axilla
  • Hands
  • Knees
  • Abdomen
  • Bra area
  • Inner & outer thighs
  • Cellulite

Through cartridges with deep penetration, HIFU impacts subcutaneous fat, causing fat cell death. Dead fat cells will be absorbed into the bloodstream and naturally expelled as waste, never to reform in the treated area again—sculpting a leaner and more attractive shape.

While some patients see improvements straight away, the natural process of flushing the body of dead cells will take time, with most results developing over twelve weeks. You will see the full impact around six to nine months after treatment.

How does HIFU work?

Collagen, the protein responsible for a firm, youthful skin tone, is produced within the body. However, over time the skin can become saggy and fine lines, and wrinkles can appear as natural collagen production declines. HIFU is used to re-engage collagen-production resulting in smoother, plumper, and more youthful appearance.

The Ultraformer 3 and ULFIT devices deliver High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) energy deep beneath the skin, creating the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration and triggering a natural process called neocollagenesis—which produces new collagen. With both devices, stimulation of the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) improves tone and structure. By delivering HIFU even deeper beneath the skin’s surface, the ULFIT and Ultraformer 3 can target stubborn areas of fat.

The Ultraformer 3 and ULFIT devices deliver the latest HIFU technology with:

  • 1.5 & 2 mm cartridges: targeting fine lines, skin texture, wrinkles, enlarged pores and promoting rejuvenated skin.
  • 3 mm cartridge: stimulates collagen and elastin production in the dermal layer for tighter skin.
  • 4.5 mm cartridge: providing additional lift and tone by targeting the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS).
  • 6, 9 and 13 mm cartridges: promotes permanent fat reduction and body contouring through fat cell death.

This natural process produces noticeable, long-lasting results without fillers, creams or toxins and can prolong or prevent the desire for surgical procedures.

In the six to twelve weeks following treatment, the face becomes noticeably tighter and more contoured, with results lasting up to eighteen months. The Ultraformer 3 and ULFIT devices are known for speed and precision and for delivering targeted, long-lasting results.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR A NON-SURGICAL FACELIFT?

If you are experiencing mild skin laxity (the face and neck look and feel less firm), HIFU treatments with either our ULFIT or Ultraformer 3 devices may be the best choice for non-surgical lifting. While HIFU does not duplicate the results of a surgical facelift, it does address the same deep foundational layers of skin. It is an excellent alternative for those not ready for surgery.

The benefits of non-surgical procedures like the ULFIT and Ultraformer 3 are minimal pain and very little recovery time (if any at all). Patients can go back to their everyday life immediately after treatment. HIFU treatments with the ULFIT or Ultraformer 3 take an hour or less and can easily fit into your busy schedule.

Non-surgical HIFU treatments avoid almost all of the usual risks of surgery. Typical risks are limited to only minor swelling and bruising.

During non-surgical procedures and Pêche Medispa, patients are asked to provide feedback and have control over the results. Since treatment areas are typically small, the procedure’s effect is limited to the exact changes the patient wants.

The Utraformer 3 and ULFIT devices used for a non-surgical facelift can lift and tighten most problems areas of the face, including the forehead and periorbital, chin and double chin, eyebrows, cheek, v-line, and jawline.

IS HIFU THE RIGHT TREATMENT FOR MY BODY CONCERNS?

Have you been considering liposuction or a tummy-tuck? HIFU is a great non-surgical solution. As skin loses elasticity and tone with age, weight fluctuations and pregnancy, HIFU treatments delivered with the ULFIT or Ultraformer 3 can tighten and tone the skin and sculpt with fat-blasting treatments. All without the risks or downtime associated with surgery.

We calibrate our Ultraformer 3 and ULFIT devices to penetrate deep below the skin to target fat, delivering micro heating that kills fat cells permanently. As the body repairs in the weeks and months following treatment, the dead fat cells will be processed and expelled as waste. You’ll be left leaner and more sculpted.

With both fat-blasting and skin tightening treatments, improvements develop over time, with only some patients noticing some immediate skin-tightening. Dead fat cells take time to be expelled from the body, and Collagen synthesis takes time to replenish and fill the skin.

Most clients see dramatic results within twelve weeks, with full changes visible around six to nine months after treatment.

  • Lifted, firmed, and toned facial muscles

HIFU TREATMENT FAQS

HIFU Cost

HIFU treatments have the benefit of being just a fraction of the cost of their surgical counterparts. With the latest technology delivered with the ULFIT and Ultraformer 3 devices, treatments are more affordable and more accessible for the average person. Depending on the treatment area, a typical treatment will cost between $150 to $1300.

Is HIFU safe?

Yes. Ultrasound energy has been used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years. ULFIT is TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) listed, meaning you can be sure Australia’s Department of Health regulates it. Ultraformer is TGA approved ARTG #267732.

HOW LONG WILL MY HIFU TREATMENT TAKE?

Most face and neck treatments take up to 60 minutes, and patients can resume normal activities immediately following the procedure. You may experience some redness during the treatment and for a few hours afterwards. Some clients experience temporary tingling, tenderness or minor swelling.

HIFU Body sculpting sessions can be as little as 15 minutes and vary considerably depending on the total area treated in one session. During your free initial consultation, we’ll discuss this with you.

With all HIFU treatments, there is no down-time or activity restrictions following the procedure.

ARE HIFU TREATMENTS PAINFUL?

Many will notice vibration and heat as the Ultraformer 3 or ULFIT delivers concentrated ultrasound deep into the skin. While feeling will vary between treatment areas, some may experience some localised discomfort that goes away quickly once the treatment ends.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE-EFFECTS?

While some temporary tingling, redness, swelling and tenderness may occur, few report side effects that last more than a few hours after treatment. These few have experienced minor bruising up to two weeks after. When compared to the side-effects and potential complications of surgical options, HIFU is a safe, effective and very well-tolerated option. However, if you’re concerned about side effects, we’re here to help. Get in contact with us as soon as possible.

ARE RESULTS PERMANENT?

Fat-reduction is permanent, while skin-tightening treatments deliver visible results for up to eighteen months that may start to fade as natural collagen production begins to decline again. Depending on your situation, returning for follow-up treatments every six to twelve months may help you maintain your more youthful appearance.
