HIFU – facelift
Amsterdam Skin Clinic is a cosmetic clinic in Amsterdam offering treatments such as HIFU (facelift). HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. This technique uses ultrasound to provide skin tightening and rejuvenation. With this technique, you can achieve a lifting effect without the use of injections or plastic surgery. You get a facelift without experiencing the aftermath of surgery.
Why 4D HIFU?
The 4D HIFU provides significantly better results compared to 1D HIFU or 3D HIFU. The 4D HIFU delivers many more lines per shot into the skin and can also be used for vaginal rejuvenation.
In regular HIFU, only a small part of collagen is stimulated and rebuilt in the skin with just one line. This results in minimal tightening and firming.
The 4D HIFU delivers more lines into the skin with a single shot. This covers a larger surface area in one go. The treatment is more optimal, and the treatment duration is shorter. The results with 4D HIFU are also much better because the lines are much closer together than with 1D HIFU or 3D HIFU. You can achieve a beautiful result after just one treatment. Your skin will be smoother, firmer, and lifted, all without unnatural, drastic changes.
What do you see after the treatment?
Right after the treatment, the skin may appear slightly red and feel a bit warm. The final results are not immediately noticeable as collagen regeneration takes some time. After approximately 3-6 months, you will start to see the difference. Improvements can continue to be noticed even after 6 months. This is because HIFU continues to stimulate collagen production for months after the treatment.
Sometimes a single treatment is sufficient, but for a more pronounced result, a follow-up treatment is usually chosen based on the age of the skin. This will be discussed during the intake, and a personalized recommendation can be provided.
Which areas can be treated?
The HIFU treatment can be used for a complete facelift on the entire face. You can also create various contours by treating specific zones.
- The jawline
- cheeks (lower portion)
- crow’s feet under the eyes
- lower lip
- upper lip lines
- smoker’s lines
- Intimate area for women for vaginal rejuvenation.
How does HIFU work
By using ultrasound, energy is delivered into the various layers of the skin. This stimulates the production of collagen. To achieve the desired result, it is very important to target the correct layer in the skin. HIFU targets the deeper layers of the skin, the dermis and the fibromuscular layer, also known as the SMAS layer.
SMAS (Superficial Musculo-Apneurotic System) is subcutaneous connective tissue responsible for the firmness of the skin. HIFU is capable of heating this deep structure. This results in lifting of the skin of the face and neck.
For whom is HIFU suitable?
- This treatment is for people who want to look better or younger without surgery and without downtime.
- The best candidates for the treatment are people with:
- Loose jawlines
- Nasolabial folds
- Drooping eyelids
- Double chin
- Fine lines
- HIFU lifting is also very effective for men.
