HIFU

Introducing the 'Non-Surgical Facelift' 

HIFU by the ULTRAcel Q+


We are proud to be the first clinic in Wales to bring you ULTRAcel Q+, the world’s fastest HIFU treatment! From our medical clinic here in Blackwood, South Wales.

 

HIFU is an acronym for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound and it's delivered by the state-of-the-art ULTRAcel Q+ machine. 
 

This leading technology is very effective for skin lifting. So if aged and sagging skin is your concern, then HIFU should be the top treatment on your radar as the ultimate skincare rejuvenation solution. It's regarded as a facelift alternative, and this one does not involve going under the knife. It significantly tightens, lifts, and contours your face, and other parts of your body, rejuventing your skin, reducing signs of ageing and improving overall skin tone. All of this is acheived with no downtime. 

Using high intensity focused ultrasound, this ground-breaking technology utilises the thermal action of the energy output from the focused ultrasound transducer. This means it creates heat and infiltrates that heat to a deep level in the skin. Incredibly, it targets your skin layers, the upper dermis at 1.5mm, the lower dermis at 3.00mm and most importantly the SMAS at 4.5mm. Your SMAS layer sits between your muscle and fat layer, and it would usually only be reached by plastic surgeons… in surgery! 
Consequently, this is what makes HIFU so truly astounding and lends to it being known as the revolutionary alternative to a facelift. 

This purpose-meant damage to your skin cells forces your body to repair them. The results are very effective even after just one single session, as the process causes your body to also produce collagen, in order to support the cell regrowth. Although you can see improved skin after one session, it is advised to have one to two sessions in a 12 month period, at least three months apart, for the best results.
 

There may be some tingling during the procedure but overall, this is a very non-invasive, painless treatment. So, it’s understandable that this appealing alternative to a surgical facelift is one of the most sought after on the market for those looking to fight the signs of aging, and you can use it without the cost or risk that a surgical procedure would impose upon you.

HIFU stimulates the bodies natural collagen which increases volume under the skin to increase plumpness and in doing so it improves over all skin quality and tone.
