Improved technique — now with extra skin tightening in eye bag region for better aesthetic outcome!
DuobloS HIFU is a 2nd generation system that utilizes High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to induce a non surgical face lift result.
It can thus be used in younger patients as a preventive maintenance procedure to stimulate and remodel collagen as well as lift sagging skin and jowls and create a more defined jawline in older patients.
HIFU induces a vibration in the molecules of the target area which in turn leads to generation of thermal energy. This creates a focal thermal coagulation zone in both the deep dermis and SMAS layer.
The energy delivered to the dermal layer contributes to new collagen formation as well as remodeling of collagen.
Thermal coagulation of the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) induces a contraction of this layer and tightening of tissue at this layer.
There is a double effect of skin tightening and tissue contraction resulting in good Face lifting and facial contouring (e.g. V-shape Face Contour)
Topical anaesthetic cream is first applied for about 30 minutes prior to the procedure.
Treatment is then carried out with the HIFU hand piece with emphasis on areas then need more lifting. It takes about 40 minutes to treat the whole face and neck with minimal discomfort and no downtime.
You will expect to experience skin lifting as well as tissue contraction and tightening after one session. Treatment can be repeated when necessary after an interval of 6 months. Most results are expected to last up to one year.
